Syrian army resumes military operations against rebels in north-west Syria
Damascus blamed Turkey for not abiding by its commitments under a truce deal
The Syrian army said on Monday it was resuming military operations in a Russian-led campaign in north-west Syria that has uprooted tens of thousands and killed hundreds. It blamed Turkey for not abiding by its commitments under a truce deal.
Syrian state media said on Thursday the ceasefire would depend on militants fulfilling a Russian-Turkish deal that tried last year to create an Idlib buffer zone.
"The agreement to a truce was conditional. This did not happen. We resume our military operations against terrorist organisations," said the army statement.
