URGENT: Syria Ceasefire Takes Effect under US-Russia Deal
Mon Sep 12, 2016 20:41:19

An internationally backed ceasefire for Syria came into effect at sundown Monday as part of a hard-fought deal to bring an end to the war between rebels and Syrian Government fighters.

The truce, brokered by the United States and Russia, entered into force at 7:00 pm local time (1600 GMT) across Syria except in terrorist-held areas.

While the Syrian government and its allies have signed on to the deal, opposition forces have yet to formally respond; AFP reported.
