Sorry! This issue is not for the standard code sniffers with the
PHP_CodeSniffer. This issue is ONLY with the Drupal's code sniffer. I'm
not sure I could ask this question here.

For the following CSS class, it shows an error.

@media (min-width: 320px) and (max-width: 961px) {
  .tooltipsrt:hover span.tltp,
  .tooltipsle:hover span.tltp,
  .tooltipsbt:hover span.tltp,
  .tooltipsbt1:hover span.tltp,
  .tooltipsbt2:hover span.tltp,
  .tooltipstp:hover span.tltp {
    visibility: hidden;

If we give the space after the colon(:) the 'hover' will not work in the

page (shown below). For a normal css class the space after the colon is

fine, but for @media it should not.

Expected result:
This should be passed by the codeSniffer

Actual result:
Style definitions must end with a semicolon
Expected 1 space after colon in style definition; 0 found
