US-Russia Cessation of Hostilities deal: No change yet in Syria's daily routine

On July 27, after a successful operation that cut off the northern passage to [Aleppo] city through the suburb of Castello, the Command of the Syrian Armed Forces offered terrorists “to lay down their arms and leave Aleppo.” Syrian President Bashar al-Assad announced an amnesty for members of terrorist groups who would surrender to the authorities within three months.

Aleppo, Syria (1:00 P.M.) – The Russian Air Force carried out 20+ airstrikes this morning over the southern Aleppo countryside, targeting the jihadist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) near the Aleppo-Damascus Highway (M-5 Highway).

According to a military source at the Hama Airport, the Russian Air Force struck Jaysh Al-Fateh’s positions at the villages of Khan Touman, Khalsah, and Tal Al-‘Eis; these airstrikes resulted in the death of numerous jihadists and the destruction of several armored vehicles.

Despite brokering the Syrian ceasefire deal on Friday, the Russians did not agree to stop targeting jihadist groups like Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham and Jund Al-Aqsa.

These aforementioned jihadist groups continue to maintain a large presence inside rebel camps, which is one of the reasons why the Russians demanded the US-backed “moderate” groups disassociate themselves as soon as possible.

If the moderate groups refuse to leave the jihadist camps, then they will be deemed a legitimate target by the Russian Air Force.



The Command of the Syrian Armed Forces has presented an ultimatum to terrorists in the eastern districts of Aleppo. As the Libankol news agency reported, Syrian Air Force’s planes throw leaflets over the city, calling on terrorist groups, surrounded in the eastern part of the city, to capitulate.

Syrian military provided a humanitarian corridor, which can be used by “those, who raised arms against the state” for leaving the besieged areas.

On July 28, a humanitarian operation was begun by the Russian centre for reconciliation of opposing sides in the Syrian Arab Republic and the government of the country in Aleppo.

However, in August, terrorist groups suddenly began an offensive against the government forces in the south of Aleppo. The Syrian Army needed a month to reflect the enemy attacks. As of today, the southern suburb of Ramus is under Syrian soldiers’ control. This had again allowed to block completely the formation of armed opposition groups in the eastern part of the city.
