MOSCOW, May 21. /TASS/. The number of residential localities in Syria that began observing the ceasefire has increased to 113 over the past 24 hours, the Russian center for reconciliation of opposing sides in Syria said on Saturday in a daily bulletin posted on Russian Defense Ministry’s official website.
"In the past 24 hours the reconciliation agreement has been concluded with representatives of one residential locality in the region of Homs," the document said. "The number of residential localities that joined the reconciliation process has increased to 113."
The document said the talks were underway with field commanders of the armed opposition units in the regions of Damascus, Hama and Daraa with the aim to end fighting.
The number of armed detachments that announced their adherence to accepting and fulfilling conditions of the ceasefire remained unchanged - 59.
Also, humanitarian aid was delivered to residents in the Aleppo region.
"Low-income families of Armenian descent in the Aleppo province were supplied with one-ton humanitarian cargo, largely foodstuffs," the center said
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.
