Turkey hails US-Russian deal on Syria

The army attacked rebel-held areas, both sides said, pushing to maximise gains before the ceasefire deadline.

Hours after the deal was announced, the opposition Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said dozens of people had been killed and wounded on Russian airstrikes near the city of Idlib.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov added: "I want to stress that distinguishing between terrorists and moderate oppositions has been written as a priority into the document that we agreed today". "We welcome the deal if it is going to be enforced", Kodmani said in a statement.

Lavrov said through a translator, "The Syrian government has been informed of these arrangements and is ready to fulfill them".

"The fighting is flaring on all the fronts of southern Aleppo", rebel spokesman Captain Abdul Salam Abdul Razak said.

Russian Federation is a main backer of Assad's government while the US has been supporting rebel groups trying to remove him from power.

A spokeswoman had earlier welcomed any deal that spared civilian lives but cast doubt on whether Moscow would be able to pressure Damascus to stop indiscriminate bombing.

"It is profoundly in the interests of the United States to target al Qaeda, to target al Qaeda's affiliate in Syria, which is Nusra, an organisation that is opposed to a peaceful transition, an organisation that is an enemy of the legitimate opposition, an organisation that is now plotting attacks beyond Syria's borders, including against the United States". "It requires unimpeded and sustained humanitarian access to all of the besieged and hard-to-reach areas including Aleppo", he said.

Taylor Swift ditches MTV VMAs for jury duty
Potential juror Michael Washington told the Tennessean , he didn't recognize Swift at first, saying "She's really a nice girl". It was just seven years ago on the VMA stage that Kanye interrupted Taylor with his "I'm gonna let you finish but." speech.

A truce agreed in February and endorsed by the United Nations Security Council has been repeatedly broken by both sides.

"This all creates the necessary conditions for resumption of the political process, which has been stalling for a long time", Lavrov told a news conference.

Now, the two powers are lining up in an unexpected new military partnership targeting the so-called Islamic State and al-Qaida-linked militants, while trying to prod Assad and opposition groups to end a civil war that has killed up to 500,000 people and displaced millions.

The potential breakthrough deal, which launches a nationwide cessation of hostilities by sundown Monday, will hinge on compliance by Assad's Russian-backed forces and US -supported rebel groups, plus key regional powers such as Turkey, Iran and Saudi Arabia with hands directly or indirectly in Syria's 5-1/2 years of carnage.

Getting Assad's government and rebel groups to comply with the deal may now be more hard as fighting rages around Aleppo, Syria's most populous city and the new focus of the war.

The main Syrian opposition umbrella group says it hopes a new U.S.

"Fateh al-Sham is a faction present on the ground and it takes part in most of the military operations, and the matter of separating it is not possible, particularly given that there are attempts to merge, within some factions, with Fateh al-Sham", Fares al-Bayoush, head of an FSA group called the Northern Division, told Reuters.
