    The Russian center for Syrian reconciliation at the Hmeimim airbase registered a total of 42 violations of the ceasefire regime in Syria in the last 24 hours, the Russian Defense Ministry said Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The violations have been registered in six Syrian provinces, the ministry reported.

    "A total of 42 ceasefire violations by illegal militant groups have been registered in Damascus (18), Aleppo (17), Deraa (3), Hama (2), Latakia (3), and Quneitra (1) provinces," the ministry said in a daily bulletin posted on its website.

    The Jabhat Fatah Al-Sham, formerly known as Nusra Front, and Daesh terrorist groups, which have been outlawed in Russia, are not part of the ceasefire deal.
