After a week of bloody clashes in Syria, a brief truce will now take place in East Ghouta (Damascus) and Latakia in just a few hours.
The ceasefire is set to begin from 1:00 a.m. on Saturday and will last just one day in the capital’s eastern suburbs and three days in the Latakian countryside.
Russian news agencies quoted an opposition figure saying the new truce would also apply to Aleppo, but al-Masdar News is not able to confirm this.
This regional peace deal comes as hundreds have been killed in Aleppo city which has witnessed heavy bombardment over the past week.
