Russian military police continue to patrol Syria's Aleppo province along two routes, the head of the Syrian Reconciliation Center of the Russian Ministry of Defense said on Friday.
"Patrols of Russian military police units continued on the Ajami – Avshariya and Ajami – Manbij routes in Aleppo province," Gen. Yuri Borenkov said.
He added that illegal armed groups continued to violate the ceasefire in Idlib province. In total, 39 truce violations have been recorded in the last 24 hours.
Regular patrols are part of the Russia-Turkey agreement in the buffer zone in northern Syria.
On October 22, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan signed a memorandum in Sochi, Russia, stipulating conditions for the peaceful withdrawal of Kurdish militants, designated by Ankara as terrorists, within 30 kilometers of Syrian border with Turkey.
The 10-point document provides for a variety of border area patrol missions by the Russian military, Syrian border guards and Turkish troops to ensure the implementation of the agreement.
