    The number of settlements in the Syrian Homs province, which support the peaceful settlement of the conflict, continues to increase.

    AL-HARAKI (Sputnik) — The number of settlements in the Syrian Homs province, which support the peaceful settlement of the conflict, continues to increase, a spokesman for the Russian center for Syrian reconciliation at Hmeymim airbase said.

    "More and more heads of administrations and local residents are in favour of the peaceful settlement of the conflict. They do not want to see militants of their territory and to to be engaged in political and some other games," Col. Igor Borodin told reporters.

    According to Borodin, from three to six Syrian settlements join the ceasefire regime on a weekly basis.

    The Russian military have delivered about four tons of humanitarian aid to the Homs province. Al-Haraki residents have received packages with individual food rations, canned fish and meat, flour, cereals and sugar, according to Borodin.

    Syria has been mired in civil war since 2011, with numerous opposition factions and Islamic extremist groups fighting government forces, seeking to topple the government of President Bashar Assad.

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