MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Ten violations of the cessation of hostilities were recorded in Syria within the past 24 hours, the Russian center for Syrian reconciliation said in a bulletin published Saturday.
"The ceasefire is generally holding. At the same time, 10 violations of the ceasefire were recorded within 24 hours (Damascus – 6, Aleppo – 3, Hama – 1)," the bulletin published on the Russian Defense Ministry’s website read.
Last month, Russia and the United States brokered a truce between the Syrian government and key opposition forces in Syria.
"Negotiations with the leaders of three armed groups operating in the city of Aleppo are underway. The number of armed groups that have joined the ceasefire is 42," an information bulletin of the Russian reconciliation center in Syria read.
