    The Russian military registered a total of four ceasefire violations in Syria’s Damascus region in the past 24 hours, the Russian Defense Ministry said Saturday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Russia-US brokered ceasefire regime in Syria came into force on February 27.

    "The ceasefire has been observed in most provinces of the Syrian Arab Republic. Within last 24 hours, 4 ceasefire violations have been registered in the Damascus province," the ministry said in a daily bulletin posted on its website.

    Russia’s Hmeimim-based center for reconciliation of opposing sides said that self-described "opposition" fighters from the Jaysh al-Islam militant group shelled Syrian army positions three times in a populated Harasta al-Basal area and once in Arbil.
