Mon Sep 12, 2016 22:41:32

Russia said on Monday it will continue strikes against the Islamic State (ISIS / Daesh / ISIL / IS) terrorist group and al-Qaida-linked militants in Syria in coordination with the US military, as a ceasefire brokered by Moscow and Washington comes into effect.

Lieutenant General Sergei Rudskoi of the Russian military’s General Staff said the Russian and US militaries will set up a joint executive center to coordinate the strikes.

US and Russian officials announced the ceasefire early on Saturday, saying they hoped it would facilitate humanitarian access to civilians.
