The recently brokered ceasefires between the government and rebel forces in the Latakia and Damascus governorates began at 1 A.M. (Damascus Time) tonight, putting a brief end to the violence that has engulfed these provinces.

In rural Damascus, the ceasefire between the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Jaysh Al-Islam (Army of Islam) was agreed upon for 24 hours; this specifically take place in the East Ghouta region.

The Syrian Arab Army, backed by Hezbollah, was on the offensive before the ceasefire agreement was put in place tonight – they have been ordered to withdraw from Al-Rukabiyah for the time being.

Meanwhile, in the Latakia Governorate, the ceasefire between the Syrian Arab Army and Free Syrian Army (FSA) has briefly put an end to the recent offensive launched by the former at the town of Kabani.

The Latakia ceasefire is set to expire in 72 hours.

all the ceasefires do is give the terrorists time to regroup and rebuild their defences
