Aleppo, Syria (12:45 P.M.) – The Syrian ceasefire agreement may temporarily cease hostilities between the opposition and government forces; however, the latter plans to expand their military operations against the jihadist rebels.
Per the ceasefire agreement, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and “moderate” opposition forces will not engage in violence for an indefinite period of time; this does not mean the government forces have to adhere to the same guidelines when it comes to groups like Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front) and Jund Al-Aqsa (Al-Qaeda franchise).
According to a Tiger Forces source, the Syrian Arab Army will continue their military operations in northern Aleppo and they will not withdraw from the Al-Castillo Highway.
Initially, it was believed that the Syrian Armed Forces would withdraw 1 km north of the Al-Castillo Highway, but this was denied by a source from the Tiger Forces on Sunday.
The Syrian Armed Forces will allow humanitarian aid convoys to travel through the Al-Castilo Highway, but they will still maintain a presence on the roadway.
