Syrian army fighting terrorists, not opposition: Lavrov

On Monday, the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the Syrian government troops are not attacking the oppositions who signed a ceasefire deal; they are fighting against terrorists near Aleppo.

“[Our] American partners within our consultations as the co-chair of the International Support Syria Group raise various issues, including that in the area of Aleppo government forces are violating the cessation of hostilities. But the government troops that are supported by the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria are not working against that part of the opposition that has accepted the conditions of the ceasefire, Lavrov said at a press conference in Moscow. The Syrian Army under the support of our Aerospace Forces are working against terrorists.”

A truce agreement was negotiated by Russia and the United States regarding Syrian conflict although many analysts suggested that the Washington had been supporting terrorists fighting against the Syrian government forces.

Nevertheless, the Arab country is currently observing an agreement for the cessation of hostilities which entered into force on February 27. The agreement stipulates the cessation of all military hostilities in Syria, except for the operations against ISIS terrorist group and al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front militants. From the middle of the March, Russia has been partially withdrawing troops and warplanes from Syria to make an end to the Syrian crisis.
