MOSCOW, September 16. /TASS/. The regime of cessation of hostilities in Syria has been violated by armed units 45 times over the past 24 hours: 18 times in Aleppo, 9 in Hama, 5 in Rif Dimashq, 12 in Homs and 1 in Latakia, the Russian center for reconciliation of the warring sides in Syria said in a bulletin posted on the Russian Defense Ministry’s website.
"In Aleppo Governorate, terrorists shelled from mortars, multiple launch rocket systems and antitank missile systems the localities of En-Nairab, Azizi and Benjamin, the residential neighborhoods of Az-Zagra, 1070, Dar-El-Mualliimin, Hai-el-Ansari, Ramusi, Leramon, Er-Ramusi, the cement and gas plants, the Castello trade center, the Al-Assad military academy and the armament academy in the city of Aleppo," the bulletin said.
Russia’s Aerospace Forces and Syria’s Air Force have not delivered strikes on opposition paramilitary formations that announced cessation of hostilities and reported to the Russian or American reconciliation centers data on their location.
The number of inhabited localities that joined the reconciliation process has grown to 619, the document said.
The ceasefire regime took effect in Syria on February 27. Shortly before, the UN Security Council adopted a resolution supporting a cessation of hostilities. The document drafted by Russia and the United States was backed by all 15 Security Council member states.
The ceasefire regime does not cover the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organizations as well as other groups ruled terrorist by the Security Council.
Russia takes an active part in the Syrian settlement effort. It helps Syria's authorities fight terrorists and has conducted mine clearing work in the ancient city of Palmyra.
