MOSCOW - Russia's coordination center in Syria has received from the United States a list of 69 armed opposition groups which agree with the terms of the cessation of hostilities in Syria, Interfax news agency reported on Sunday.

The center said the groups on the list included ones who had confirmed their agreement via the opposition's High Negotiations Committee as well as ones who had told the U.S. directly that they agreed with the truce.

Russia had itself received declarations of agreement from 17 armed groups from Syria's "moderate opposition," the center said in a statement cited by Interfax.

The center added that it had registered six instances of shelling of residential areas of Damascus on Saturday from areas controlled by the "moderate opposition."
