HMEYMIN AIR BASE /Syria/, March 2 /TASS/. The Russian center for reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria continues receiving reports on artillery shellings from the Turkish territory, the center’s head, Lieutenant General Sergey Kuralenko, told journalists on Wednesday.
"The Russian center continues receiving information from the Syrian General Staff and Kurdish units supporting the cessation of hostilities in Syria on the ongoing artillery shelling from the Turkish territory," Kuralenko said.
"We regard Turkey’s actions as openly provocative and aimed at disrupting the ceasefire regime and the reconciliation process in the Syrian Arab Republic," Kuralenko stressed.
He added that the Russian center had checked the information provided by the Geneva-based working group on incidents linked to the shelling of positions of opposition units.
The general clarified that the Russian warplanes were not delivering air strikes at the armed units that had supported the cessation of hostilities and had informed the Russian or US center of their locations.
