    Russian representatives in the Russian-Turkish commission on the Syrian ceasefire registered eight ceasefire violations in Syria, while the Turkish side has registered six violations, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian representatives in the Russian-Turkish commission on the Syrian truce have registered eight violations of the ceasefire regime over the past 24 hours while Turkish representatives registered six violations, the Russian Defense Ministry said Friday.

    "The Russian part of the joint Russian-Turkish commission on issues related to violations of the Joint Agreement has registered 8 violations over the past 24 hours in Latakia [5], Hama [2], and Damascus [1] provinces," the ministry's Center for Syrian reconciliation said in a daily bulletin.

    "The Turkish side has registered 6 violations: three in Damascus, two in Aleppo, and one in Homs provinces," the bulletin said.

    According to the document, the Russian side can confirm only two violations registered by Turkey.

    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.
