MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 14th January, 2019) The Russian side of the Russian-Turkish commission monitoring the implementation of the Syrian ceasefire has registered three ceasefire violations in the country over the past 24 hours, while the Turkish side recorded as many as 19 truce breaches, the Russian Defense Ministry's Center for Reconciliation of Opposing Sides and Refugee Migration Monitoring said on Monday.

"Over the last 24 hours, the Russian party of the Russia-Turkey Commission on violations of the Joint Agreement has registered 3 cases of firing in the provinces of Aleppo (1), Latakia (1), and Idlib (1). The Turkish side has registered 19 cases of ceasefire violations in the provinces of Aleppo (2), Hama (3), Idlib (13) and Latakia (1)," the center said in its daily bulletin.

Over the given period, the reconciliation center conducted one humanitarian action in the southern province of Daraa, handing out 500 food packages.

The number of areas that signed reconciliation agreements did not change over the given period and amounts to 2,518. The number of armed formations claiming that they observe the ceasefire stands at 234.

Since 2017, Russia has been one of the three guarantors of the ceasefire in Syria, which has been engulfed in a civil war for years. The Russian armed forces have been providing military assistance to Damascus throughout the conflict, while also carrying out regular humanitarian operations across the country. Russia is now assisting Syria in the post-war reconstruction and the return of refugees.
