Bulletin of the Russian Centre for reconciliation of opposing sides in the Syrian Arab Republic (September 16, 2016)

Reconciliation of the opposing sides

Within last 24 hours, truce agreements have been signed with representatives of 4 inhabited areas in the Latakia province.

The total number of inhabited areas, the leaders of which had signed reconciliation agreements, has reached 623.

Negotiations on joining ceasefire regime have been continued with field commanders of armed groups in the Muaddamet-ash-Shikh (Damascus province) and detachments of armed opposition in the Homs, Aleppo, and al-Quneitra provinces.

The number of ceasefire application forms signed with leaders of armed groupings remained 69.

Ceasefire observation

Illegal armed formations have not started withdrawing hardware and armament from the Kastello road simultaneously with the government troops; therefore they failed to observe their obligations in accordance to the Russian-American agreements.

Detachments of the opposition are using the ceasefire regime in order to recover their combat capabilities and regroup their forces in the Aleppo, Hama, and Homs provinces. They increase the number of shellings.

That is why the government troops had to stop withdrawing forces and return them to the position, which they had kept before.

The Russian center for reconciliation of opposing sides sent an appeal to the American party informing that detachments of the “moderate opposition” had failed observing the agreement.

Within last 24 hours, 39 cases of ceasefire violations have been registered from their side in the following provinces: Aleppo (19), Hama (5), Damascus (6), Homs (8), and Latakia (8).

In the Aleppo province, terrorists have fired with mortars, MLRS, AT complexes and small arms against Braidge al-Rih, al-Khader inhabited areas, al-Khalidiyah, al-Zahraa, Ramusi, Dakhiyah al-Asad, al-Masharqah, and 1070 quarters, cement plant, gas plant, armament school, checkpoint on the Kastello road, Karyat Khalab fortress, and Kastello trade center in the Aleppo province.

In the Hama province, Maan, Zor Abu Zaid, Makharda, and Skandariyah inhabited areas have been shelled with MLRS, mortars, and armored vehicles.

Terrorists have shelled Harasta, Haush al-Hayat, Haush al-Farah inhabited areas in the Damascus province, Ibn al-Walid hospital in the Damascus city, Qinsibba, Ain al-Kantara, Rasha, Abu Ali mountain regions, and Shillif fortress in the Latakia province, Alya Basi quarter in the Homs province.

Russian Aerospace Forces and Syrian Air Force have not carried out strikes on regions, where the opposition detachments could be located.

Despite numerous violations of the ceasefire regime and absence of progress in dividing moderate opposition from Jabhat al-Nusra by the American party, the Russian party is ready to prolong the ceasefire regime for 72 another hours.
