    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Russian center for Syrian reconciliation at the Hmeymim airbase registered a total of 44 violations of the ceasefire regime in Syria in the last 24 hours, the Russian Defense Ministry said Saturday.

    "Within last 24 hours, 44 shellings performed by illegal armed formations have been registered in the provinces of Aleppo (20), Damascus (20), Latakia (1), and Hama (3)," the ministry said in a daily bulletin posted on its website.

    The ongoing conflict in Syria has lasted for about five years. Since its beginning it has claimed lives of thousands of people and displaced millions more. The international community has undertaken steps to end the Syrian conflict and to solve the humanitarian crisis in the Middle Eastern country.

    On September 9, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry unveiled a peace plan to address the conflict. The ceasefire deal was later shattered by numerous violations, which resulted in intensified fighting between the Syrian government and militants in Aleppo. The Syrian government has announced an end to the ceasefire regime, while Russia said that the United States failed to fulfill its obligation to separate terrorist groups from moderate opposition.
