The Russian Defense Ministry announced that a ceasefire regime had been declared in the Eastern Ghouta region near the Syrian capital of Damascus.

“A ‘regime of silence’ has been introduced from 00:01 on March 6 to 23:59 on March 20 (Damascus time) in the area of Eastern Ghouta,” the ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

Jaish al-Islam, a major Saudi-backed militant group, is headquartered in Eastern Ghouta.

On March 6, Jaish al-Islam launched some 5 ballistic missiles against government forces positions in the Damascus countryside.
