Four Russian soldiers fell victims of the car explosion in Syria, TASS reports. They all died after remote-controlled shell was blown up under their car that was a part of the Syrian troops’ convoy going from Tiyas Military Airbase to the city Khoms. Two more soldiers were injured, now Russian military doctors fight for their lives.

Not only military men are dying in Syria, but also people who came to save lives of the civil population. As Russkiy Mir Foundation reported earlier, the gunmen from so-called Syrian opposition attacked Russian mobile military hospital on December 5. Two military doctors were victims of this attack. Multifunctional hospital could accommodate 100 patients. It had been opened only for a day, before the gunmen destroyed it. Civil people treated by Russian doctors suffered as a result of this shooting attack, too.

It should be reminded that ceasefire came into force at the end of last year in Syria. Negotiations about peaceful resolution of Syrian conflict are held in Astana and Geneva.
