Lattakia, SANA – The armed terrorist groups breached the cessation of hostilities agreement in Syria 11 times during the last 24 hours, putting the number of breaches since February 27 at 456, according to the Russian Coordination Center.

The agreement, which came into effect on 27 February, does not include Jabhat al-Nusra, ISIS and other groups listed by the UN as terrorist organizations.

The Hmeimim-based Russian Center said in a statement published on the website of the Russian Defense Ministry on Tuesday that the so-called “al-Rahman legion” organization shelled a medical center and a residential neighborhood in Damascus countryside.

It added that the so-called “Ahrar al-Sham” group shelled 3 towns in Lattakia countryside and al-Sheikh Maqsoud neighborhood in Aleppo with mortars, while groups of the so-called “Free Army” shelled two towns in the countryside of Homs with rockets.

In the same context, the Russian Coordination Center affirmed that the Russian Air Force did not target positions for groups which joined the cessation of hostilities agreement, indicating that militants of Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organization continue sneaking into Lattakia province from Turkey.
