MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Syrian military engineers have diffused 60 explosive devices over the past 24 hours, thereby demining 2 hectares (4.9 acres) of territory, the Russian Defence Ministry’s Centre for Reconciliation of Opposing Sides said on Saturday.
The bulletin added that no refugees had returned to Syria from neighboring Lebanon and Jordan over the past day due to the coronavirus pandemic that has affected all three countries and caused authorities to shut borders.
Additionally, the Russian side of the Russian-Turkish commission monitoring the implementation of the Syrian truce has not recorded a single ceasefire violation over the past 24 hours, while the Turkish side has registered three breaches.
The daily report added that the Russian military had not carried out any humanitarian operations in Syria over the given period.
Russia, Turkey, and Iran are the ceasefire guarantors in conflict-affected Syria. Russia regularly performs humanitarian operations across the country and helps Damascus provide safe passage for the return of Syrian refugees.
