BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:40 P.M.) – A 72-hour-long ceasefire has been announced in northwestern Syria this afternoon, following talks between the Russian and Turkish armed forces.

According to a field reporter, one of the ceasefire conditions is to open a humanitarian crossing so that civilians trapped in the war zone can be evacuated to safety.

The reporter said all air activity over northwestern Syria has been halted, adding that no airstrikes have been reported since this morning.

The previous ceasefire deals have failed in northwestern Syria, as the warring parties refused to halt their hostilities.

The last temporary ceasefire ended when Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham launched a large-scale assault to recapture the key town of Kafr Naboudeh.

Another stupidity thanks to Russia-Turkey agreement ? I hope not, and this really is because of humanitarian relief. Russia must stop pleasing Turkey (NATO member).

Not really. The Israeli forced the cease-fire by their air strikes last night. Turkey is getting help from Israel. It’s a mess.

Makes no sense : Israelis have targetted Iranian positions in Al-Haara and near Jaba, this is close to al-Quneitra, Syrian Golan-Heights… Err, aren’t IRGC supposed not to be closer than 80km from the 1974 ceasefire line?
Turkey supports Hamas together with Iran and Qatar, Hamas supports al-Nusra/Qaeda/HTS => Iran is ally with Turkey and supports HTS too, it’s a real mess!

Vaults all have systems to render the bombs totally unusable in case of commando attack etc) – Turkey is about to be sanctionned by CAATSA law. – Turkish backing of several terrorist groups is an open secret. From US+EU POV, this is… Read more »

This cease fire will end just as the previous ones did. If there is no immediate movement on the humanitarian corridor, Syria should end the cease fire immediately. The Russians may be bending over backwards to prevent civilian deaths, but they better see results fast or this will be just another opportunity for Turkey to rearm their terrorist forces…which I’m sure they are doing as fast as they can right this moment.

Parece que no cuenta la opinión de Siria en su propio territorio, otra ves Rusia complaciendo al gobierno Turco, es una verguenza…!.
Erdogan pide tiempo para fortalecer a sus mercenarios, eso de ayuda humanitaria consiste en enviar convoy de armas y no de alimentos…
