The General Command of the Army and Armed Forces announced on Monday that the effect of truce regime, which came into force at19:00 on September 12th 2016 under the Russian-US agreement has ended.
The General Command said in a statement that the truce regime was supposed to form a real opportunity to stop the bloodshed, but the armed terrorist groups turned a blind eye to the agreement and didn’t adhere to any of its terms.
It pointed out that more than 300 breaches have been perpetrated by the armed terrorist groups during the truce period in all areas through targeting the residential neighborhoods and the sites of the Syrian Arab Army, killing and injuring tens of civilians and military personnel.
The General Command of the army went on to say that the armed terrorist groups took advantage of the announced truce regime by mobilizing the terrorist groups and various types of weapons to continue their attacks on the residential areas and military sites and to carry out wide terrorist operations, mainly in Aleppo, Hama and Quneitra.
The statement confirmed that the criminal acts of the terrorist groups during the truce period form clear evidence on the extent of the affiliation of these groups to international and regional sides which have no interest in the cessation of hostilities or putting an end to the suffering of the Syrian people.
The army’s command clarified that units of army did their best to implement the truce regime and exercised the highest degree of self-restraint in facing the breaches of the terrorist groups except in some cases when the army units were forced to respond to fire sources.
The general Command concluded its statement by emphasizing on its intention and determination to continue its national tasks in the fight against terrorism to restore security and stability to the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic.
