Muslimpress:The warring sides in Syria reached an agreement on Thursday to hold a two - day ceasefire in a rebel - held town near the border with Lebanon. This is while, the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that it is the second ceasefire in a month in these areas between the Syrian army and the Lebanese group Hezbollah on one hand, and Syrian insurgents on the other. The ceasefire came into force at 6 a.m. (0300 GMT). Yet, yesterday there were some news over the reached agreement in the town of Zabadani and the two villages of Kefraya and al Foua in the northwestern province of Idlib. “Implementation has started. There is calm in Kefraya, al Foua and Zabadani,” Rami Abdulrahman, who runs the Observatory, told reporters. A similar ceasefire this month in the same areas, organized with help from Iran and Turkey, broke down after a brief extension, and fighting has raged since. Moreover, the death rate in the area is dramatically going up, whereas, none of the both sides agrees with a permanent ceasefire. This is while the few remaining people on the are faced with lack of basic life requirements such as water and food.
