    The Russian center for Syrian reconciliation at the Hmeimim airbase registered a total of four violations of the ceasefire regime in Syria's Damascus province in the last 24 hours, the Russian Defense Ministry said Sunday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Russia-US brokered ceasefire regime in Syria came into force on February 27. The al-Nusra Front and the Daesh terrorist groups, which are outlawed in Russia, are not covered by the ceasefire deal.

    "The cessation of hostilities in Syria has been respected in most of Syrian provinces. However, a total of four violations of the ceasefire regime have been registered in Damascus province," the ministry said in a daily bulletin posted on its website.

    Jaysh al-Islam formations have carried out mortar shelling of Syrian army positions in several inhabited locations of the province, according to the statement.

    The number of settlements that have joined the ceasefire regime in Syria has increased to 164, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

    "Within the last 24 hours, a truce agreement has been reached with representatives of a settlement in the Daraa province, bringing the total number of settlements that have joined ceasefire to 164."

    Ceasefire talks were held with several armed opposition commanders in the Daraa, Homs and Hama provinces, according to the statement.
