Terrorist groups breach cessation of hostilities 4 more times in last 24 hours

Lattakia, SANA-The cessation of hostilities agreement was breached by terrorist groups four times during the last 24 hours, growing the total number of breaches to 686 since the agreement came into effect, the Russian coordination center said.

The cessation of hostilities agreement, which came into effect on 27 February 2016, does not cover ISIS, Jabhat al-Nusra or other groups designated as terrorist organizations by the UN Security Council.

The Russian center, based in Hmeimim airbase, said in a statement Saturday that terrorists of the so-called Jaish al-Islam targeted with mortar rounds military positions in 3 towns of Damascus countryside.

The Russian center pointed out that terrorists of Jabhat al- Nusra and Ahrar al-Sham renewed attempts to foil the agreement in the countryside of Lattakia, Hama and Aleppo, stating that army units faced a wide scale attack for Jabhat al- Nusra in the southern countryside of Aleppo.
