    "The Russian part of the joint Russian-Turkish commission on issues related to violations of the Joint Agreement has registered 14 violations over the past 24 hours in Latakia [1], Hama [1], and Damascus [12] provinces," the ministry's Center for Syrian reconciliation said in a daily bulletin.

    "The Turkish side has registered 11 violations: three in Damascus, four in Aleppo, two in Daraa and two in Homs provinces," the bulletin said.

    The number of settlements that have joined the cessation of hostilities in war-torn Syria has increased to 1,148.
