Syr­ian guns fall silent again

The Citizen (Gauteng) - - NEWS -

– A cease­fire deal for a Syr­ian rebel-held pocket south of Damascus was reached yes­ter­day, bro­kered by Egypt and Rus­sia.

Backed by Rus­sia, Iran and Shi­ite mili­tias, the Syr­ian gov­ern­ment has pushed back rebels across Syria over the past year, shoring up its rule over the main ur­ban cen­tres.

A string of cease­fire deals in re­cent months has eased the fight­ing in western Syria. – Reuters
