Another ceasefire agreement has been put in place at the cities of Madaya, Al-Zabadani, Al-Fou’aa, and Kafraya after late night meeting between the Syrian Arab Army’s Central Command and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham’s leader; this agreement was facilitated by Iranian and Turkish delegates, who mediated between the two opposing parties.

According to a military source in Damascus, the ceasefire agreement between the Syrian Armed Forces and Islamist rebels of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham is set to begin at 6 A.M. (Damascus Time) at the aforementioned cities listed above; this non-violent agreement is scheduled to expire on Monday morning.

In the meantime, Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham has agreed to allow humanitarian aid to the besieged civilians of Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya; while the Syrian Armed Forces have agreed to allow all of the wounded Islamist rebels to be evacuated from Madaya and Al-Zabadani to the Lebanese border, where they will seek medical assistance in the ‘Arsal District.

The last time a ceasefire agreement was implemented in these areas, the Islamist militants of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham violated terms and fired hellfire cannons into Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya – they claimed that the Syrian Armed Forces refused to release some of their requested prisoners.

Recently, the fighting has intensified in the aforementioned cities, as both parties look to gain the upper-hand in this tug-of-war battle for Al-Zabadani, Madaya, Al-Fou’aa, and Kafraya.

That is not good news finish zabadani ans stop elongating the time of battle. You treat the wounded to fight them again while your soldiers get killed when in custody.
