Russia Announces Ceasefire in Northwest Syria

Al Jazeera

Moscow has announced a ceasefire in Syria’s northwestern Idlib province after weeks of intensified rocket fire and air strikes by regime and Russian forces, Al Arabiya reports. 

“At Russia’s initiative, with the mediation of Turkey and Russia, a ceasefire agreement was concluded in the Idlib de-escalation zone as of midnight on June 12,” the Russian Reconciliation Centre for Syria said in a statement late Wednesday.

“As a result, a significant reduction has been observed in the number of bombardments by illegal groups,” said the centre, which is operated by Russia’s armed forces.

Idlib, the last major area of Syria outside government control, has faced intense regime bombardment in recent weeks, despite a months-old buffer zone deal.
