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

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — 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.

    "The Russian part of the joint Russian-Turkish commission on issues related to violations of the Joint Agreement has registered 4 violations over the past 24 hours in Latakia [3], and Damascus [1] provinces," the ministry's Center for Syrian reconciliation said in a daily bulletin.

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

    According to the document, the Russian side cannot confirm any violations registered by Turkey.
