Militants Attacked Settlements in 2 Syrian Provinces - Russian Military

MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 17th April, 2019) Militants breached the truce regime in the Syrian provinces of Hama and Latakia over the past 24 hours, the Russian Center for Reconciliation of Opposing Sides said on Tuesday.

"Over the past day terrorists have attacked Tell Bizam in Hama province, Zuaykat and Jubb-al-Zarur in Latakia province," the statement said.

The center stressed that despite the truce, there were still cases of ceasefire violation by illegal armed groups in the Idlib de-escalation zone.

The reconciliation center urged leaders of illegal armed groups in the Idlib de-escalation zone "to cease hostilities and move towards peaceful settlement of the situation in areas they occupy."

Apart from being one of the guarantors of the ceasefire in Syria, Russia also assists Damascus in the reconstruction of the country and the repatriation of refugees. Russia also carries out humanitarian actions across Syria on regular basis, delivering food and supplies to local residents.
