Damascus, Syria (9:45 A.M.) – Syria’s largest rebel group has officially rejected the nationwide ceasefire deal that was proposed by the Russian and U.S. governments this past weekend.
Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham’s Deputy Leader “Abu ‘Ammar Al-‘Umar” issued a televised statement on Monday morning that affirmed his Islamist group’s rejection of the nationwide ceasefire proposal.
Al-‘Umar stated that Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham will reject any ceasefire proposal that excludes certain rebel groups in Syria.
He followed this statement by declaring solidarity with one of the excluded groups: Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front).
Rumors about Ahrar Al-Sham’s rejection of the ceasefire began to spread on Sunday after a prominent member issued a voice recording that condemned the proposal.
