Syria war: US and Russia agree new truce ‘to start at weekend’

The US and Russia have agreed terms for a ceasefire in Syria beginning on Saturday but many questions remain over whether the agreement can be implemented on the ground.

The deal would in theory mean an end to fighting between the Syrian regime and all major opposition groups except for al-Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate and the Islamic State (Isil).

The truce, which would begin at the stroke of midnight on Saturday, should also mean an end to Russian airstrikes against rebel forces.

    Neither the Russians or the Americans have the power to see that this happens on the ground. I’m guessing it won’t.

    The hostilities will last till one group or the other has finished digging in and restocking it’s ammo and gun supply. Then they will do what the Koran demands and break a treaty that is no longer needed as a cover.
