A well-informed source said earlier today that a second ceasefire brokered by the US and Russia may come into force in Eastern Damascus and Homs in mid August before Astana talks on the Syrian crisis.
The Arabic-language desk of Sputnik quoted the source as saying that Moscow and Washington will possibly announce the second ceasefire deal in mid August that will include Eastern Ghouta and Homs.
“It will be announced soon, before the next international meeting on Syria in Astana (in late August), around August 14 or 15,” the source said.
“There will be expert consultations between the Russians and Americans in one of the European capitals first. The ceasefire will probably cover Homs, and maybe Eastern Ghouta,” the source added.
