Ceasefire violations continue in Syria

IANS  |  Damascus 

Violations of a ceasefire declared in Syria continued in the provinces of Daraa and Sweida, a British-based war monitor said on Tuesday.

The ceasefire, brokered by the US and Russia, went into effect on Sunday in the provinces of Daraa, Sweida and Quneitra, reports Efe news.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said government forces fired two missiles into the rebel-held area of Daraa al-Balad in Daraa province on Monday night, causing material damage.

Meanwhile, fighting between forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad and rebels linked to the Free Syrian Army was ongoing in Sweida.

US President Donald Trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin reached the ceasefire agreement during last week's G20 Summit.
