3 Syr­ian rebel groups agree to Da­m­as­cus truce:

The Washington Post - - THE WORLD -

Three Syr­ian op­po­si­tion fac­tions have agreed to cease-fire in south­ern Da­m­as­cus un­der an agree­ment bro­kered by Egypt and Rus­sia, of­fi­cials said. The deal does not spec­ify the area, but the groups con­trol a pocket south of Da­m­as­cus that is near ar­eas held by the Is­lamic State. The agree­ment would al­low for hu­man­i­tar­ian ac­cess but would not in­volve the re­lo­ca­tion of mil­i­tants or res­i­dents. Egypt’s state-run news agency said the deal does not in­clude the Syr­ian govern­ment.
