    Russian party of the Russia-Turkey Commission on violations of the Joint Agreement registered three cases of ceasefire violations in Syria, while the Turkish party registered two cases of ceasefire violations, according to the statement of the Russian Defense Ministry.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian representatives in the Russian-Turkish commission on the Syrian truce have registered three violations of the ceasefire regime in Syria during the past 24 hours, while Turkey has informed about two cases, the Russian Defense Ministry said Sunday.

    "Within last 24 hours, the Russian party of the Russia-Turkey Commission on violations of the Joint Agreement has registered three cases of firing in the province of Damascus. The Turkish party has registered two cases of ceasefire violations in the province of Damascus," the ministry said in a daily bulletin.

    Most cases of random fire occurred in the areas controlled by the militants of terrorist groups, such as Jabhat Fatah al Sham (formerly known as the Nusra Front) and Daesh, both banned in Russia.

    The number of settlements which joined the ceasefire and the number of armed groups that have joined the cessation of hostilities remained unchanged, and stay at 2,043 and 228, respectively, according to the bulletin.

    The Russian reconciliation center carried out a number of humanitarian operations, distributing food in the city of Aleppo and the province of Homs as well as providing medical help. Russian aircraft, in collaboration with the United Nations, delivered food to the area of Deir ez-Zor.

    Russia and Turkey are the guarantors of the nationwide ceasefire in Syria, which has been engulfed by civil war for over six years. The international organizations as well as national governments have been attempting to alleviate the plight of the civilians, providing food, shelter and other basic necessities.
