Russia’s defense ministry on Wednesday called for a 48-hour extension of the Syria truce it brokered with the United States last week.

Moscow “calls for the extension of the cessation of hostilities on all Syrian territory for 48 hours,” Russian news agencies quoted senior Russian military officer Viktor Poznikhir as saying.

He added that rebels had violated the ceasefire 60 times since it came into force on Monday.
