    The Russian center for Syrian reconciliation at the Hmeimim airbase registered a total of eight violations of the ceasefire regime in Syria in the last 24 hours, the Russian Defense Ministry said Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Syria has been mired in civil war since 2011, with government forces loyal to Damascus fighting numerous opposition factions and extremist groups.

    "The cessation of hostilities in Syria has been respected in most of Syrian provinces. However, a total of eight violations of the ceasefire regime have been registered, including three in the Aleppo province, and five in the Damascus province," the ministry said in a daily bulletin posted on its website.
