Allied opposition fighters in the National Front for Liberation (NFL) have thwarted Russian incursion attempt in Aleppo southern countryside, killing and injuring Russian mercenaries, the group said on its social media outlets.

NFL fighters thwarted on Tuesday (December 17) Russian incursion attempt at Khalsa battlefront, killing and injuring Russian special forces soldiers.

In September, NFL fighters thwarted Russian incursion attempt at Ejaz battlefront, killing a Russian sniper and injuring his fellow Russian mercenaries.

The death toll of Russian mercenaries killed in Syria has reached to more than 100 soldiers since its direct military intervention on Sept. 29, 2015 to bolster Assad regime. However, Russian activists confirm that the death toll of the Russian soldiers is much higher.

At least 22 civilians, including ten children were killed and others were injured during one day last week after Russian warplanes and Assad helicopters bombed Idlib countryside.  

Assad-Russian warplanes have committed dozens of massacres in Idlib and Hama countryside since they launched their bombing campaign on the 30th of April, largely violating the de-escalation zone deal reached between Russia and Turkey.
