BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:50 P.M.) – Minutes ago, the Syrian Arab Army’s General Command announced that their forces will halt their military operations against rebel forces across the country and adhere the proposed nationwide ceasefire.

Should the rebel factions agree to this deal proposed by Turkey and Russia, the nationwide ceasefire will take effect as of midnight on December 30th.

The ceasefire deal excludes terrorist groups like the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS), Jund Al-Aqsa (Al-Qaeda franchise), and Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front).

Per the deal, the Syrian Arab Army will be allowed to target to jihadist groups, without violating the ceasefire deal with the rebel factions.

In the past, rebel factions have rejected deals like this because their forces are deeply embedded with jihadist groups like Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham and Jund Al-Aqsa.

Perhaps its Turkey’s turn to ‘separate the un-seperable’.

“In the past, rebel factions have rejected deals like this because their forces are deeply embedded with jihadist groups like Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham and Jund Al-Aqsa.”
=> Why would it change?
IMHO, Russia is giving a try if Turkey can influence them but… They took the fact that Turkey didn’t intervened against SAA as a treason. Hey, why do you think they arrested guys coming back from Euphrates s**t to Idlib province?
I’m very very very dubious about the fact it might work.

In other terms, “opposition” agrees on ceasefire in al-Qaeda is not targetted!
Dear president Putin : I hope you’ve mounted some Kashtan-M on Kremlin or don’t be surprised if you see some hijacked Tupolev “crashing” in your courtyard…
Due to the claims, don’t look further it’s already failed before it begins!
