Russia and Turkey are guarantors of a nationwide Syrian ceasefire that came into force on December 30, and has been holding up in general, despite continued reports of violations. The UN Security Council passed a resolution in December supporting the effort.




“The Russian part of the joint Russian-Turkish commission on issues related to violations of the Joint Agreement has registered 4 violations over the past 24 hours in Latakia [2] and Hama [2] provinces,” the ministry’s Center for Syrian reconciliation said in a daily bulletin.


According to the bulletin, the Turkish side has registered 14 violations across five provinces — Damascus, Homs, Latakia, Aleppo and Idlib.


According to the document, the Russian side cannot confirm the violations registered by Turkey.
