Terrorist groups breached the cessation of hostilities agreement in Syria 7 times in one day, the Russian Coordination Center said.
The Russian center pointed out that al-Nusra Front’s terrorists continued attempts to foil the agreement, as they shelled several towns in the countryside of Lattakia, Idlib, Hama and Damascus.
The center, based in Hmeimim airbase, said in a statement, that terrorists of the so-called Jeish al-Islam targeted military positions and a number of Damascus neighborhoods with mortar rounds.
The cessation of hostilities agreement, which came into effect in Syria since 27 February in implementation of UN Security Council resolution 2268, does not include al-Nusra, ISIL and other groups listed by the UN as terrorist organizations.
The cessation of hostilities agreement is holding in most Syrian areas, as the number of towns which have joined the agreement reached 139, the center concluded.
