Syrian army resumes military operations against rebels in northwest Syria

Reuters , Monday 5 Aug 2019

The Syrian army said on Monday it was resuming military operations in a Russian-led campaign in northwest Syria that has uprooted tens of thousands and killed hundreds, blaming 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.
