Unknown militant sniper kills Syrian soldier in Aleppo

Tehran, The Russian Defense Ministry says the Russian side of the Russian-Turkish commission monitoring implementation of the Syrian ceasefire has registered seven truce breaches in the past 24 hours, while the Turkish side has not recorded any ceasefire violation.

The number of areas, which signed reconciliation agreements, has remained the same and amounts to 2,518, the Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation said Saturday. The number of armed formations claiming that they observe the ceasefire has not changed either, standing at 234, Sputnik reported.

Syria has been in a state of civil war since 2011, with the government forces fighting against numerous opposition groups and militant and terrorist organizations. Russia, along with Turkey and Iran, is a guarantor of the ceasefire regime in Syria. Moscow has also been providing humanitarian aid to residents of the crisis-torn country.

The city of Aleppo, which had long been one of the most severe battlefields in the country, was completely liberated from terrorists in December 2016 by Syrian government forces.
