The rebels gave the Syrian government 48 hours to end the fighting near Damascus


Group of Syrian rebels signed a statement, according to which they do not complete the cease-fire if government forces did not stop military actions in Damascus suburb, according to Reuters.

The statement “free Syrian army” was signed by about 40 rebel groups operating across Syria. In it they gave the government and its supporting fighters of the Lebanese Hezbollah 48 hours — that is two days to cease hostilities.

The ceasefire, declared on 27 February, does not apply to banned terrorist organization “Islamic state” and “Dzhebhat EN-Nusra” and other formations recognised by the UN security Council as terrorist.
