Syrian opposition says temporary truce possible, but deal seems far off



NUSRA FRONT IN SPOTLIGHT A source close to peace talks earlier told Reuters Syria's opposition had agreed to the idea of a two- to three-week truce. The truce would be renewable and supported by all parties except Islamic State, the source said. It would be conditional on the al Qaeda-linked Nusra Front no longer being attacked by Syrian government forces and their allies, at least to start with, the source said. The Nusra Front is considered a terrorist organization by the U.N. Security Council.

No halt to Russian bombardments looked immediately likely. The source close to peace talks said Russia had so far rejected the idea of halting attacks on Nusra. Russian President Vladimir Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said Russia was "sticking to its consistent policy of rendering assistance and aid to the armed forces of Syria in their offensive actions against terrorists and against terrorist organizations".



The Free Syrian Army is an Syrian Muslim Brotherhood Sponsored opposition. There are no modreates in Syria expect the Kurds and Iranian Shia. SAA.

This is was rather a laughable read.

Syrian opposition says temporary truce possible, expect deal seems far off. I think your right about it being far off. The Russian supported Syrian govt would be making a bad mistake to talk now just because the other side is loosing.

For all the pain and suffering that the opposition forces, moderate or not, have put the Syrian people through, the Russian backed Syrian govt should stop until they have wiped these ISIS scum and their backers off the face of the earth.

Warning - If the hoped for above occurs, it will impose a very public blood nose on Washington for the whole world to see and therein lies the risk of escalation against Russia.

If retaliation does not happen immediately it will happen when the new president (Hillary) has settled in.

If she comes to occupy that role under such circumstances god help us all.
