Russia has launched a military deployment in the areas under the control of the Bashar al-Assad regime in the south of Al-Bab district, which was cleared of terrorist activities.
Russia has been deploying military units near the village of Abu Jabbar, located in the south of Al-Bab district, since Jan. 11.
