MOSCOW, May 29. /TASS/. The ceasefire regime has been generally observed in most of Syria’s provinces, with four violations reported in the provinces of Damascus and Aleppo in the past day, the Russian center for reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria said in its regular daily news bulletin posted on the Russian defense ministry’s website on Sunday.

In the province of Damascus, Jaysh al-Islam groups shelled the settlements of Harasta and Marj al-Sultan and Damascus’ Masakid Barza district from multiple missile launcher systems and mortars. Aleppo’s al-Zahra district came under shelling from multiple missile launcher systems.

"No air strikes were delivered by the Russian air group and the Syrian air force at armed opposition group which have declared cessation of hostilities and referred their coordinates to the Russian or U.S. reconciliation centers," the center said.

The regime of silence in Eastern Ghouta and Darayya in the province of Damascus is still in place. However groups constituting the international terrorist organization Jabhat al-Nusra (outlawed in Russia) are continuing provocation aimed at disrupt the regime of cessation of hostilities. During the day, they used multiple missile launcher systems and mortars to shell the settlement of Handrat, the al-Nayrab airport and Aleppo’s districts of Sheikh Maksoud, Meidan and Salah al-Din.

Jabhat al-Nusra groups shelled the settlement of Fua in the province of Idlib, the capital city’s airport in the province of Hama, the settlement of Mesherfa in the province of Homs, the settlements of Khakur-Takhtani, Rasha and Ard al-Wata in the province of Latakia.

Islamic State gunmen attacked positions of the Kurdish forces near the settlement of Azaz in the province of Aleppo. The Kurdish forces drove the terrorists from the settlement of Sheikh-aisa. Government troops repelled a Jabhat al-Nusra attack near the settlement of Beitima in the province of Damascus, as follows from the bulletin.

A ceasefire regime brokered by Russia and the United States on February 22 officially came into effect in Syria at midnight Damascus time on February 27. This does not cover terrorist groups such as Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra, both outlawed in Russia, and other groups recognized as terrorist by the United Nations Security Council.

An hour before the ceasefire came into force, the United Nations Security Council adopted a resolution in support cessation of hostilities in Syria. The document was initiated by Russia and the United States and won support from all the 15 members of the United Nations Security Council.
