MOSCOW, September 14./TASS/. Seven field commanders and more than 1,000 militants under their control have switched sides to join the Syrian troops, the Russian Center for the Reconciliation of Opposing Sides in Syria said in a report on Thursday.
"An agreement has been reached that seven field commanders from illegal armed groups and more than 1,000 militants under their control switch sides to join Syria’s government troops," the report said.
Besides, the reconciliation center said the national reconciliation committee in the Homs province has agreed with the mayor of the Al Qaryatayn settlement on rebuilding a city clinic.
Additionally, a meeting was held with a representative of the National Security Bureau, "to discuss pressing issues that are delaying concrete moves on boosting the process of reconciliation of the warring sides," the center said.
The Russian Reconciliation Center in Syria also safeguarded the work of representatives from Russian and foreign media outlets during a humanitarian operation in the settlement of Deir-Baalba.
The Russian Defense Ministry declared the establishment of the reconciliation center on February 23, 2016. It is headquartered at the Hmeimim air base, in the Latakia province.
