Syrian General Staff Confirms Implementation of 'Silent' Period
DUBAI (Sputnik) – Earlier in the day, a source told Sputnik that Russia and the United States had agreed to introduce state of cessation of hostilities in northern Latakia province and suburbs of Damascus in Syria from midnight on April 30.

Following the announcement, media reports emerged claiming that Aleppo would also be involved in the regime, but were refuted by a different source.

“There’s talk about a ceasefire in Aleppo reached between the United States and Russia, but we have not yet received any information on this. We’re ready to comply with the ceasefire in line with the agreement, but not in the interests of [Syrian President Bashar Assad’s] regime,” the source told RIA Novosti by telephone.

The Syrian General Staff has already confirmed that the 'silent' period has been implemented and that it will be in force for 24 hours in Damascus and its suburbs, and in Latakia and its suburbs for 72 hours.

The ceasefire in Syria, worked out by Russia and the United States, took effect on February 27. Terrorist groups are not part of the agreement.
