    The Russian center for Syrian reconciliation at the Hmeimim air facility registered a total of seven violations of the ceasefire regime in Syria in the last 24 hours, the Russian Defense Ministry said Sunday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — All seven of the violations have been attributed to the Jaish al-Islam group.
