    There has been relative calm in northwest Syria on the third day of a conditional ceasefire.

    It comes after a truce was brokered during peace talks in Kazakhstan, following weeks of air strikes and bloodshed in Idlib province, the last remaining rebel-held area.

    But the most powerful rebel group Hay’et Tahrir al-Sham says it does not want to withdraw 20 kilometres, although it accepts the ceasefire.
