Two Russian servicemen wounded in shelling carried out by Syrian militants


Baku – APA. Two Russian servicemen from the reconciliation center received minor wounds as militants shelled a humanitarian corridor near the western part of the Castello road in Syria's Aleppo opened for the withdrawal of armed groups, Russia’s defense ministry said on Friday, TASS reported. 

 

At 2.45 p.m. Moscow time on Friday the humanitarian corridor came under fire carried out by militants from the eastern part of the city. The shelling was conducted with the use of gas balloons from home-made rocket launchers and mortars.

 

"The wounded servicemen were immediately evacuated to a safe area of the city where they received all the necessary medical aid. Their life is not under threat," the ministry said. Some 50 Russian, Western and Arab reporters were evacuated from the corridor.

 

The ministry said the live stream of the insurgents’ withdrawal from Aleppo launched on its official website on Friday morning has been suspended.

 

The Russian military had set up cameras in Aleppo to stream live pictures of the humanitarian corridors for militants online.
