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.
