There are favourable conditions in most areas of the Syrian Arab Republic that enable IDPs to return back to their homes.

Military medics have provided medical assistance to more than 107 people, including 62 children over the past day.

Despite the ceasefire regime being established throughout the country, there have been still cases of ceasefire regime violation by illegal armed formations in the Idlib de-escalation zone over the past week. Thus, from July 23 to 29, there have been 65 shelling attacks. The number of ceasefire violations compared to the previous week has increased by 1.5 times.

Over the past 24 hours, insurgents attacked Kinsabba (two times), Royset-Rushu (two times), Mashariyah, Ikko, Latakia province, and the Hamdaniyah (three times) and Maqanis al-Duwayri (two times) districts of Aleppo city. An attack of militants by the Project 3000 MLRS  in the Al-Hamdanija district of Aleppo, caused casualties among civilians (two people were killed and six civilians were wounded)according to preliminary data.

Terrorists launch unmanned aerial vehicles from the Idlib de-escalation zone towards the Hmeymim air base.  On July 29, 2018, in the evening, Russian air defence systems of the Hmeymim Air Base air base detected a unidentified small-size air target (drone) launched from a territory occupied by illegal armed formations. The anti-aircraft systems eliminated the air target at a considerable distance form the air base. No casualties or material damage was caused. The Hmeymim Air Base functions as planned.

The Russian Centre for Reconciliation of Opposing Sides urges leaders of illegal armed formations operating  in the Idlib de-escalation zone to cease hostilities and move towards peaceful settlement of the situation in areas they occupy.
