MOSCOW, July 10. /TASS/. No reconciliation agreements have been concluded with representatives of Syrian residential localities, the Russian center for reconciliation of opposing sides in Syria said in a daily news bulletin released on the Defense Ministry’s website on Saturday.
"The number of residential localities that have joined the reconciliation process has remained unchanged - 177," the bulletin says.
The talks on joining the ceasefire agreements have been continued with field commanders of the armed opposition in the Damascus, Hama and Homs regions.
"The number of armed groups that pledged their commitments to accepting and fulfilling the conditions of the cessation of hostilities remained unchanged - 61," the center said.
Truck convoys are being loaded with humanitarian aid for Syrians in need, the bulletin says.
At least 30 peaceful civilians were killed and about 150 more wounded when militants of the Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist group shelled residential houses in Aleppo’s Al-Furkan suburb.
"Most killed and injured people are women and children," the bulletin says.
Also, the terrorists targeted the residential localities of Arbuil, Bahariya, Darayya, Meida and Harasta-al-Basal in the Damascus region, along with Aido, Balla, Bruma, Ikko and Safsafa in the Latakia region.
No ceasefire violations have been registered in Syria over the past 24 hours, the Russian center for reconciliation of opposing sides in Syria said in a daily news bulletin posted on the Defense Ministry’s website on Saturday.
"Russia’s Aerospace Force and Syria’s Air Force have not been delivering strikes on opposition armed units that had announced the cessation of hostilities and reported their location to the Russian or U.S. reconciliation centers," the bulletin said.
International terrorist groups Jabhat al-Nusra and Islamic State (both outlawed in Russia) keeps on preventing the final cessation of hostilities to hold.
In the past 24 hours, terrorists delivered strikes with the multiple rocket launchers and mortars on the residential localities of Kudehi, Handrat, Haylan and al-Hader, and also on Sheikh Maqsood, al-Khalidiya, az-Zahra, al-Furkan, al-Muhafaza and al-Nayrab airport.
The ceasefire has been effective in Syria since February 27, 2016. It does not apply to the groups Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra (both outlawed in Russia), and also to other groups declared as terrorist by the UN Security Council. Russia’s aviation grouping has been delivering air strikes against the Islamic State terrorist organization in Syria since September 30, 2015 at the request of Syria’s President Bashar Assad. Since 2014, the US-led coalition has also been delivering air strikes against militants in Syria and Iraq.
