    Russia registered 15 truce violations in Syria within the last 24 hours, while Turkey reporting about 12 cases, the Russian Defense Ministry said Sunday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Turkish part of the commission registered 12 cases of truce breaches, including two in Damascus, one in Homs, two in Hama, five in Aleppo and two in Daraa, the bulletin added.

    "Within last 24 hours, the Russian part of the Russia-Turkey Commission on violations of the Joint Agreement has registered 15 ceasefire violations in the provinces of Damascus (9), Latakia (3), Daraa (1) and Hama (2)," the ministry's Center for Syrian reconciliation said in a daily bulletin.
