    Additionally, the Syrian army engineering units have cleared 2.7 more hectares (6.7 acres) of the territory of mines in the provinces of Damascus and Daraa and defused 61 explosive devices over the given period, the bulletin noted.

    Moscow and Ankara previously managed to implement a ceasefire in the Middle Eastern country to stop clashes between the Syrian and the Turkish forces, also establishing a security corridor that runs six kilometres (3.7 miles) north and south of the M4 highway, connecting the provinces of Latakia and Aleppo.
