Islamic militants violated the 2-days truce held with Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Hezbollah to stop fighting in the western town of Zabadani and Fuaa and Kafraya villages in Idlib province.

Al-Nursa-linked fighters rocked the two Shiite villages with homegrown missiles, killing three civilians.

Earlier, a 48-hour ceasefire, brokered by Iran and Turkey, came into effect at 6 a.m. this morning after month-long negotiations between the two warring parties to grant critically-injured militants a safe exit out of the worn-torn Zabadani near the Lebanese borders in exchange of halting all military operations against Fuaa and Kafraya villages.

An informed source told Al Masdar that the negotiations are still ongoing to reach an agreement concerning a number of points, including allowing Zabadani militants to leave the town while permanently lifting the nearly 3-year long siege imposed by hardline militants on the Shiite-populated villages of Fuaa and Kafraya.

Two days ago, Islamic militants fired more than 1000 rockets, homegrown projectiles and mortars on the two villages, killing and injuring tens of civilians, and causing heav material losses.

Nearly 45 km to the west of the capital Damascus, SAA and the Lebanese well-trained Hezbollah fighters are inching closer to the town’s downtown, and are now in control of nearly 75% of Zabadani.
