    The Russian part of the joint Russian-Turkish commission on issues related to violations of the Joint Agreement has registered 11 violations over the past 24 hours, while Turkish side has registered 13 violations, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian representatives in the Russian-Turkish commission on the Syrian truce have registered 11 violations of the ceasefire regime over the past 24 hours, the Russian Defense Ministry said Tuesday.

    "The Russian part of the joint Russian-Turkish commission on issues related to violations of the Joint Agreement has registered 11 violations over the past 24 hours in Latakia [5], Hama [5] and Damascus [1] provinces," the ministry's Center for Syrian reconciliation said in a daily bulletin.

    "The Turkish side has registered 13 violations: three in Damascus, four in Aleppo, four in Hama, one in Latakia, and one in Daraa provinces," the bulletin said.

    According to the document, the Russian side can confirm only one violation 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.
