The Syrian army command has declared the end of the nationwide ceasefire in Syria.
“It was assumed that the ceasefire will present a real chance to end the bloodshed, but terrorist groups did not adhere to any of the points of the agreement on a ceasefire, the number of violations on their part has exceeded 300,” SANA news cites the statement.
The statement says the Syrian army has “shown the highest level of endurance in confronting the abuses by terrorist groups.”
In turn, “armed terrorist groups took advantage of the declared ceasefire” in order to regroup and mobilize forces. Now, the terrorists are aimed to launch attacks on “residential areas” and the government forces positions in several regions, including Aleppo.
We recall, the nationwide ceasefire came into force on September 12 at 16:00 GMT according to the deal signed by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and his US counterpart, John Kerry in Geneva earlier this month. However, the US and US-backed militant groups have failed to meet any of the commitments undertaken as part of the Geneva agreements.
