Syria truce plan

-

THE U.S. and Russia have agreed on a new ceasefire for Syria that will take effect Saturday.

Syria’s warring government and rebels still need to accept the deal, which the U.S. and Russia called a “cessation of hostilitie­s” between President Bashar Assad’s government and armed opposition groups after five years of violence .

The truce will not cover ISIS or any other militias designated as terrorist organizati­ons by the UN Security Council.
