    The Russian center for Syrian reconciliation at the Hmeymim airbase registered a total of 10 ceasefire violations.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Russian center for Syrian reconciliation at the Hmeymim airbase registered a total of 10 violations of the ceasefire regime in Syrian western province of Latakia in the last 24 hours, the Russian Defense Ministry said Wednesday.

    "In general, the ceasefire has been observed in most provinces of the Syrian Arab Republic. Within last 24 hours, 10 ceasefire violations have been registered in the Latakia province," the ministry said in a daily bulletin posted on its website.

    The ceasefire in Syria, worked out by Moscow and Washington, took effect on February 27, but does not include groups that have been designated as terrorist by the United Nations, such as Daesh and the al-Nusra Front, which are outlawed in many countries, including both Russia and the United States among others.

    "Over the past 24 hours, representatives of 3 settlements in the provinces of Damascus, Hama and Aleppo have signed reconciliation agreements. The number of settlements, having joined the reconciliation process grew to 90," the reconciliation center also said.

    The talks on joining the ceasefire regime have also been conducted with a field commander of an armed opposition group active in the Damascus province, according to the bulletin.

    "The number of ceasefire application forms signed with leaders of armed groupings has remained 52," it said.
