Ahrar Al-Sham has officially rejected a nationalwide ceasefire proposal pushed by the United States and Russia.
Ahrar Al-Sham is one of the largest Syrian militant groups. Despite the radical views, the group is often called the “moderate opposition” by the Western Media and is supported by the United States.
On September 12, Deputy Leader of Ahrar al-Sham ‘Abo Ammar al-Omar’ publicly rejected the ceasefire proposal in the Eid message. According to al-Omar, the problem is that the ceasefire will exclude from the agrreemennt some Syrian “opposition” groups… for example the Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (formerly Jabhat Al Nusra) terrorist group and other Al Qaeda affilates in Syria.
The proposed ceasefire is set to be started today at 16:45 local time. However, there are serious doubts that it will be de-facto implemented on the ground.
