    Russian representatives in the Russian-Turkish commission on the Syrian truce have registered seven violations of the ceasefire regime over the past 24 hours while Turkish representatives also registered seven violations, the Russian Defense Ministry said Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the document, the Russian side cannot confirm violations registered by Turkey.

    "The Russian part of the joint Russian-Turkish commission on issues related to violations of the Joint Agreement has registered 7 violations over the past 24 hours in Latakia [3] and Hama [4] provinces," the ministry's Center for Syrian reconciliation said in a daily bulletin.

    "The Turkish side has registered 7 violations: three in Damascus, two in Aleppo, two in Hama," the bulletin said.

    Russia and Turkey are guarantors of a nationwide Syrian ceasefire that came into force on December 30, and has been holding up in general, despite continued reports of violations. The UN Security Council passed a resolution in December supporting the effort.
