Representatives of militants in 88 towns of Aleppo and Hama provinces have ended fight against the Syrian Army troops and joined the peace process in the last 24 hours, the Russian ministry said in a statement on Monday.
The total number of regions, cities, towns and villages that have thus far joined the peace plan stands at 1,717 now, it added.
Early this month, the Russian Reconciliation Center for Syria had announced that a sum of 1,500 towns, townships and villages joined the peace plan in war-hit Syria.
“The number of populated localities that have joined the reconciliation process in Syria has increased to 1,500,” the Russian Reconciliation Center for Syria said.
It added that negotiations are underway with armed opposition units in the provinces of Aleppo, Damascus, Hama, Homs and Quneitra to encourage them to join the cessation of hostilities agreement.
