MOSCOW, June 14. /TASS/. The regime of cessation of hostilities has been observed in most Syrian provinces over the past 24 hours, with five violations reported in the province of Damascus, the Russian center for reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria said in its regular daily news bulletin posted on the Russia defense ministry’s website on Monday.

Units of the Jaysh al-Islam group which affiliates itself with the opposition two times opened mortar fire at positions of Syrian government troops in the settlement of Arbil and three times - in the settlement of Harasta al-Bansal.

The Russian Aerospace Forces and the Syrian Air Force have not delivered air strikes at the opposition paramilitary units, which have accepted the ceasefire conditions and had informed the Russian or American reconciliation centers about their location, as follows from the bulletin.

The regime of silence imposed in the settlement of Darayya in the province of Damascus till 24:00 on June 14 was observed.

During the day, terrorists from the Jabhat al-Nusra organization (outlawed in Russia) used home-made artillery systems to shell the settlement of Rasha and Ard al-Wata in the province of Latakia, the settlements of Bleliye and Marj-Sultan in the province of Damascus.

In the province of Aleppo, shelling was opened at the settlements of Handrat and al-Ramusi, and Aleppo’s Sheikh Marsoud, al-Khamadiya, al-Khalidiya and Meydan districts.

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.

The Russian reconciliation center aims to assist armed groups in Syria in concluding ceasefire agreements, maintain the truce regime, control its observance and organize the delivery of humanitarian cargoes to civilians.
