Phase II of the 6 month long ceasefire agreement between the Syrian Arab Army/Hezbollah and Jaysh Al-Fateh has just begun, as a dozen medical vehicles enter the predominately Shi’i towns of Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya in order to transport the wounded residents to the Latakia Governorate for further medical assistance.

Prior to the transport of these wounded civilians in Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya, the Syrian Armed Forces and Jaysh Al-Fateh successfully completed Phase I of the ceasefire agreement; this required the Syrian Government to provide transportation for the wounded Islamist rebels from Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, the Free Syrian Army (FSA), and the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra.”

During the implementation of Phase I, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) launched a series of airstrikes over the town of Taftanaz in the Idlib Governorate; this was a violation of the ceasefire agreement, which clearly outlined that Taftanaz, Idlib City, Binnish, Ma’arat Al-Misreen, and Brouma Farms were declared no-fly-zone areas.

According to social media activists from Jaysh Al-Fateh, the violation allegedly “forced” the aforementioned Islamist group to launch dozens of mortar shells and rockets into the town of Al-Fou’aa, leaving 9 civilians severely wounded before they halted their aggression.

Since this incident, both sides have refrained from targeting one another and complied with their obligations that were set forth in the ceasefire agreement.
