Idlib

The Russian Defense Ministry’s Center for Syrian Reconciliation said that some 35 militant groups are ready to join the peace agreement with the Syrian Army troops in Idlib.

The ministry said that 35 units confirmed their readiness to side with the government troops” following talks with the leaders of the formations.

The agreement on the de-escalation zone in Idlib was reached a couple of days ago. The establishment of the Idlib safe zone has been especially crucial due to the fact that around 9,000 terrorists Al-Nusra Front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at or the Levant Liberation Board) were attempting to take control over the province, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.

Previously, safe zones were established in Southern Syria, Eastern Ghouta, and the Homs province.

ICRC Director of Operations Dominik Stillhart told Sputnik the zones helped lower the level of violence in the war-ravaged country.
