The Russian Ministry of Defense presented a 15 day ceasefire plan to the Syrian Arab Army’s Central Command and the Jaysh Al-Islam (Army of Islam) representatives on Wednesday morning in order to implement a contingency to dissipate the violence that was plaguing the East Ghouta (collection of farms) region of rural Damascus and work towards national unity.

Unfortunately, one side was not receptive to this potential ceasefire agreement, despite the close coordination between Russia, Turkey, and Iran.

According to a military source in the Syrian capital, Jaysh Al-Islam rejected the 15 day ceasefire agreement after Russia demanded the aforementioned Islamist group to withdrawal from the areas around rural Damascus that were under a reconciliation agreement (i.e. Barzeh and Harasta).

Jaysh Al-Islam has been under siege in the East Ghouta region of rural Damascus for over two years now and with this ceasefire agreement, they would have been able to bring in the necessary supplies to continue their battle in the towns of Harasta, Douma, Jobar, ‘Ayn Tarma, and Marj Al-Sultan.

Recently, the Syrian Arab Army’s 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard broke-through Jaysh Al-Islam’s defenses at the Marj Al-Sultan Military Airport; however, this incident was not enough to convince the Islamists to accept this deal.
