    Information Minister said that Syrian army respects the ceasefire regime in the country.

    DAMASCUS (Sputnik) The Syrian army respects the ceasefire regime in the country, Syrian Information Minister Omran Zoubi said Friday.

    "The Syrian army has not violated the ceasefire. The Syrian military leadership and Russian military leadership at the Hmeymim air base coordinate their actions throughout Syria on a daily basis, and Russian military services register all committed violations," Zoubi told Russian reporters.

    According to the minister, the developments on the outskirts of Damascus or in Aleppo are the results of actions of Daesh and the Nusra Front terrorist groups banned in Russia, both of them are not parties to the ceasefire agreement.

    Terrorist activity in Aleppo has increased recently, with militants regularly shelling residential neighborhoods with mortars and homemade rockets. Terrorists have been periodically attempting to block the only road which connects Aleppo with other provinces.

    The US-Russia-brokered ceasefire came into force across Syria on February 27. It was supported by Damascus, as well as by dozens of opposition groups on the ground.
