MOSCOW, June 12. /TASS/. The silence regime has been violated four times over the past 24 hours in Syria’s province of Damascus, the Russian center for reconciliation of the warring sides in Syria said in a news bulletin posted on the Russian Defense Ministry’s website on Sunday.
Units of the Jaysh al-Islam group, which ranks itself among the opposition, fired mortar shells three times at Harasta al-Basal and once at the positions of Syria’s army in Arbin, the statement said. The Russian Aerospace Forces and Syria’s Air Force did not deliver strikes on the units that have announced they are halting combat actions, it said.
The silence regime has been extended for 72 hours from midnight on Sunday near Daraa, in the Damascus province.
The Jabhat al-Nusra international terrorist group has not stopped attempts to disrupt the ceasefire regime that took effect in Syria on February 27. Over the past 24 hours, the terrorists have shelled several villages, including in the provinces of Latakia, Hama and Damascus.
The number of settlements that have joined the reconciliation process in the country has grown to 145. Talks on joining the silence regime are underway with field commanders of the armed opposition units in the provinces of Damascus, Homs and Quneitra, the center said.
