Zabadani Truce Extended until Final Agreement Reached
A cease-fire agreement covering the Syrian border town of Zabadani and two villages in the northern Idleb province between Hezbollah and the Syrian army on one side, and terrorist groups on the other, was extended Tuesday until reaching an agreement.
Al-Manar TV channel said that the truce would continue until a final agreement was reached on the status of militants and civilians in Kefraya and Foua towns.
It is the third cease-fire to cover these areas in around a month.
The cease-fire, which went into effect at mid-Sunday covers also the villages of Madaya and Baqin, which are adjacent to Zabadani.
Hezbollah and Syrian forces have tightened the noose around terrorists in Zabadani and Idleb province. The operation began in early July and is seen as an attempt to bolster control of land routes between Lebanon and Syria and sever rebel supply lines.
Zabadani is located 50 kilometers northwest of Damascus and 12 kilometers northeast of Lebanon’s Masnaa border crossing.
