The Ministry of Defense of Russia announced in the noon of August 30 a new one-sided ceasefire in Syria’s Greater Idlib.
“In order to stabilize the situation, the Russian Center for Reconciliation in Syria has reached a one-side ceasefire by Syrian government forces starting from 60:00 AM of August 31, 2019,” a statement by the ministry reads, according to RT.
The ministry went on to call on all militants in Greater Idlib to join the new ceasefire and avoid any further escalation.
A few hours earlier, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) advanced in southeastern Idlib capturing the key town of al-Tamanah and several hilltops in its vicinity.
Idlib militants have not responded on the Russian proposal, yet. In the last two years, the militants took advantage of similar ceasefires by reorganizing their forces, building fortifications and launching attacks on Syrian and Russian forces.
