MOSCOW, March 4 (Xinhua) -- Russia registered 12 truce breaches in three Syrian provinces over the past 24 hours, the Russian Defense Ministry said Sunday.
One case of violation was recorded in the northern Aleppo governorate, five in Latakia, and six in Damascus, the ministry said in its daily bulletin on the Syrian truce regime.
Turkey registered three cases of violations in the Syrian capital Damascus during the same period of time, the statement said.
Most of the mortar and small arms firings were registered in areas controlled by terrorist groups, it added.
The United Nations Security Council on Feb. 24 unanimously adopted Resolution 2401, demanding a ceasefire of at least 30 days across Syria to allow humanitarian access and urgent medical evacuations.
However, violations were recorded every day in the war-torn country, according to the Russian military.
