Turkey - SMART

The Reconciliation Center of the Russian-controlled Hmemim air base in the Latakia countryside, Western Syria, calls on the fighting parties to end all military and violent operations.

Sergey Koralenko, a Russian official from the Hmemim air base, said in a statement posted on Facebook that the Russian Reconciliation Center calls on the fighting parties in Eastern Ghouta to end all military operations as per the de-escalation agreement.

Koralenko pointed out that armed formations, referring to the loyalist forces and their militias, the Free Syrian Army and Islamist factions, should return to their bases in the areas included in the de-escalation agreement.   

The Hmemim air base's spokesman, Aleksandr Ivanov, said in a statement posted on the base's Facebook page that Russia seeks to maintain the de-escalation agreement as long as possible. He added that the developments in Idlib and Eastern Ghouta, and the threats of "rebel groups" in Southern Syria, constitute a real threat to the agreement.

These statements coincide with continued Battle of Harasta in the Armored Vehicle base, Eastern Ghouta, as the Ahrar al-Sham Islamist Movement advanced in the area during the battle, which was launched two weeks earlier. The battle was launched in retaliation of Russian and loyalist forces' breaches of the de-escalation agreement, which have killed and injured hundreds of civilians.     

Russia is considered the main military supporter of the Syrian government against the Free Syrian Army and Islamist factions. After announcing its direct support on Sept. 30, 2015, Russia increased its military operations in Syria and supported the Syrian government by using their veto right 11 times in the United Nations Security Council, which condemned the loyalist forces' of using chemical weapons against civilians and accused them of committing war crimes.
