Footage filmed on Sunday shows SAA soldiers gathered near the entrance of what appears to be Maarat al-Numan national hospital.
According to an official statement issued by the Russian Defense Ministry, the Syrian government is currently making consistent efforts to establish a peaceful life in the territories liberated from illegal armed groups.
