The White House expressed concern Wednesday about reports of Syrian regime attacks on civilian areas, warning they could be a flagrant breach of a fragile ceasefire.

"We are concerned about reports that the Syrian regime has engaged in tank and artillery attacks against civilians," spokesman Josh Earnest said, referring to reports about strikes near Latakia.

"Obviously those kinds of attacks -- if confirmed -- would be a flagrant violation of cessation of hostilities."
