- Syrian Ceasefire Collapses After Assad Slams “Naked American Aggression”
by Tyler Durden, www.zerohedge.com
Update: well, that was quick: according to AFP the Syrian ceasefire is now over, just one week after it began.
Barely a week into the latest “hard fought” Syrian ceasefire brokered by the United States and Russia last weekend, the deal seemed on the verge of collapse on Monday as a rebel official said it had practically failed and signaled insurgents were preparing for a full resumption of fighting. Already widely violated since it took effect a week ago, the ceasefire came under added strain at the weekend when Russia said jets from the U.S.-led coalition against Islamic State killed at least 62 Syrian soldiers in eastern Syria.
