MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 14th March, 2019) The Russian side of the Russian-Turkish commission monitoring the implementation of the Syrian ceasefire has registered 16 ceasefire violations in the country over the past 24 hours, while the Turkish side has recorded 38 truce breaches, the Russian Defense Ministry's Center for Reconciliation of Opposing Sides said on Thursday.

"Over the last 24 hours, the Russian party of the Russia-Turkey Commission on violations of the Joint Agreement has registered 16 cases of firing in the provinces of Hama (8), Latakia (5), Aleppo (2), Idlib (1). The Turkish side has registered 38 cases of ceasefire violations in the provinces of Aleppo (18), Latakia (9), Idlib (6), and Hama (5)," the ministry said in a bulletin.

Over the past 24 hours, the ministry's Center for Reconciliation of Opposing Sides and Refugee Migration Monitoring carried out a humanitarian action in Hama province, distributing 500 food sets to local residents.
