"Situation in the de-escalation zones is assessed as stable. Within last 24 hours, the Russian party of the Russia-Turkey Commission on violations of the Joint Agreement has registered 11 cases of firing in the provinces of Hama (3), Latakia (2) and Damascus (6). The Turkish party has registered 10 cases of ceasefire violations in the provinces of Hama (1), Damascus (3), As Suwayda (3) and Daraa (3)", the ministry’s Center for Syrian Reconciliation said in a daily bulletin.
The highest number of cases of unselective firing from small arms has been recorded in the territories under the control of militants from Daesh and Jabhat al-Nusra terror groups (both outlawed in Russia), the statement added.
According to the Defense Ministry, within last 24 hours, the Center for reconciliation held three humanitarian actions in Aleppo, delivering 3.6 tons of drinking water to the civilians. It was reported that the total of 1,130 people received the humanitarian aid. The Russian military medics provided medical assistance to 184 people. The statement added that the United Nations and other partners continued providing food, medical, psychological and law assistance to the Syrians. Besides, the center continues to rebuild the infrastructure and provide temporary accommodations for those in need.
The civil war in Syria between the government and various opposition and terror groups has been raging since 2011. Russia, alongside Iran and Turkey, is a guarantor of the ceasefire regime in Syria. In May, Russia, Turkey and Iran signed the memorandum on establishment of safe zones in the country as part of the Astana talks on Syrian settlement. The four zones include the northwestern Idlib province and parts of the neighboring Latakia, Hama and Aleppo, the north of the central Homs province, Eastern Ghouta near Damascus, as well as southern Daraa and Quneitra regions. The monitoring and management of the safe zones is carried out by the military personnel of these countries.
