A group of foreign journalists came under a terrorist attack in the northeastern countryside of Lattakia, a source on the ground told SANA on Tuesday.

The source said the attack was caused by artillery shelling from across the Turkish side and took place while the journalists were touring Kensabba area, 60 km northeast of Lattakia city, to which the army and the popular defense groups restored security on February 18th.

Later, a military source dismissed the attack as “a breach of the cessation of hostilities,” saying it is evidence of the extent of the Turkish regime’s involvement in supporting terrorist groups and inciting them to torpedo the agreement.

4 journalists from Russia, China, Bulgaria and Canada were injured due to the attack.

Meanwhile, Russian Defense Ministry Spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said the attack was caused by 8 artillery shells that came from the Turkish territories.

Konashenkov said the journalists were evacuated from the site and that the injured were given the necessary medical assistance.

The group consisted of 33 journalists from Bulgaria, Greece, Germany, the United States, China, Russia, and Canada.
