MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 11th September, 2019) The Russian side of the Russian-Turkish commission monitoring the implementation of the Syrian truce has registered 30 cases of ceasefire breach in Syria over the past 24 hours, while the Turkish side has recorded 20 violations, the Russian Defense Ministry said in its daily bulletin on Wednesday.

"The Russian side of the Russian-Turkish joint commission reviewing issues, related to the violation of the ceasefire regime, has registered 30 instances of firing: 10 in Aleppo, seven in the province of Latakia, eight in Idlib, and five in Hama.

The Turkish side has registered 20 cases of firing: 15 in Idlib, two in Hama, and three in Latakia," the ministry said.

Syria has been marred by an armed conflict since 2011. In May 2017, the warring parties held talks in the Kazakh capital of Nur Sultan under the mediation of Russia, Iran and Turkey, and managed to conclude a ceasefire agreement and establish four de-escalation zones. Even though in some parts of Syria military operations continue, the priority is now given to political settlement and return of refugees.
