    Russian and Turkish monitors registered 19 ceasefire violations in Syria.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Russian and Turkish monitors in the Syria ceasefire commission registered a total of 19 truce violations across seven provinces in Syria in the past 24 hours, the Russian Defense Ministry said Wednesday.

    "Within the last 24 hours, the Russian representatives at the Russia-Turkey Commission on violations of the Joint Agreement have registered four violations in Latakia (1) and Hama (3) provinces," the ministry's Center for Syrian reconciliation said in a statement.

    Meanwhile, Turkey's representatives at the commission registered 15 violations of ceasefire during the same period (two in Hama, five in Aleppo, two in Damascus, three in Daraa, one in Idlib, and two in Homs provinces), the statement said.

    Russia and Turkey are guarantors of a nationwide Syrian ceasefire that came into force last Thursday, and has been holding up in general, despite continued reports of violations. The UN Security Council passed a resolution last Saturday supporting the effort.
