Syrian Government and opposition agree to truce in Idlib

Conditional ceasefire announced during thirteenth round of peace talks in Kazakh capital.

A conditional ceasefire deal has been agreed between the Syrian government and the opposition, months into the government’s heavy bombardment of the northwestern region of Idlib.

The opposition says it withdrew heavy arms under a previous Sochi deal but the Syrian government broke the agreement.
