MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russian representatives in the Russian-Turkish commission on the Syrian truce have registered a total of six violations of the ceasefire regime in Syria during the past 24 hours, while Turkey informed about five cases, according to the ministry.
"Within last 24 hours, the Russian party of the Russia-Turkey Commission on violations of the Joint Agreement has registered six cases of firing in the provinces of Aleppo (1), Latakia (1) and Damascus (4). The Turkish party has registered five cases of ceasefire violations in the province of Damascus," the ministry said in a daily bulletin.
Russia and Turkey are the guarantors of the nationwide ceasefire in Syria, which has been in the grip of a civil war for over six years. Syrian government forces are fighting against the opposition groups, who strive to overthrow President Bashar Assad, as well as numerous extremist and terrorist groups, such as Daesh and Jabhat Fatah al Sham, both of which are outlawed in Russia.
