MOSCOW, April 6. /TASS/. The ceasefire regime has been observed in most Syrian governorates, with four violations registered over the past 24 hours (3 in Latakia and 1 in Homs), the Russian center for reconciliation of the warring sides in Syria reported Wednesday.
"Formations of the Ahrar ash-Sham group, which ranks itself among the opposition, kept firing from mortars on the positions of the Syrian army in the area of the inhabited localities of Sandran, Kinsibba and Fara (Latakia)," the center’s news bulletin said. "One Syrian serviceman was killed and 11 wounded in the shelling."
"From the direction of the locality of Tajar-Amir (Homs), militants of the paramilitary formation Jaysh al-Islam mortared the positions of the government troops near the locality of Kafer-Nan," the statement said.
According to the bulletin, reconciliation talks are ongoing with representatives of a village in Syria’s Hama province.
"The number of settlements that joined the ceasefire process has remained unchanged - 58," the bulletin said. "Preliminary agreements to end fighting have been reached with field commanders of two armed opposition units, operating in the Damascus and Hama provinces."
At least 47 armed groups have declared their commitment to accepting and implementing conditions of the ceasefire agreements so far.
