Jeish Al-Islam Terrorist Group Violates Ceasefire in Syria
The Jeish al-Islam terrorists hit the people’s houses in the Syrian capital with mortar shells.
There were no immediate reports on the possible casualties or losses in militants’ mortar attacks.
Jeish al-Islam is violating the ceasefire while a ceasefire brokered by the US and Russia came into effect on Saturday.
Russia and the United States reached an agreement on the ceasefire in Syria on February 22. The ceasefire took effect at midnight on Saturday, Damascus time (22:00 GMT on Friday). The UN Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution endorsing the Russia-US agreement on the cessation of hostilities in Syria on Friday, shortly before the ceasefire came into force.
The cessation of hostilities does not apply to designated terrorist groups operating in Syria, including ISIL (also known as Daesh) and Jabhat al-Nusra (Nusra Front), a group affiliated with al-Qaeda.
