According to Friday’s Russian delegation talks inside the rebel-held Wadi Barada for 2 hours negotiation during a provisional ceasefire which was held by both sides, a longer and steadier ceasefire will enter into effect for maintenance workshops will be granted access to fix the damaged water spring at Ain Al-Figeh to end a 15-day water crisis in the capital.

On Friday Syrian army forces recaptured several strategic hilltops overlooking the Wadi Barada region where militants linked to Al Qaeda have been blocking Damascus water supply almost 15 days.

The recent gain came after massive reinforcements from the Army's elite forces arrived recently at this western region; thus forcing the militants to consider negotiating an agreement with the Syrian authorities, AMN reports.

A longer and steadier ceasefire will enter into effect at 9 a.m. tomorrow whereby maintenance workshops will be granted access to fix the damaged water spring at Ain Al Figeh to end a 15-day water crisis in the capital.

According to the agreement, militants will hand on heavy and medium arms to be eventually enrolled in local committees, which along government troops, will bear the responsibility to preserving security in the towns of Wadi Barada.

Militants who are originally not from the towns and villages of Wadi Barada, as well as those unwilling to have their legal status settled, will be evacuated to the northwestern province of Idlib.
