    Daesh terrorists are taking efforts to capture elders and administration leaders of towns, field commanders of 'moderate' Syrian opposition, who had signed ceasefire agreements in order to set the ceasefire regime back, according to the Russian center for Syrian reconciliation.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Islamic State (ISIL or Daesh) militants launched a hunt for elders, administration heads and opposition leaders, who have joined Syrian ceasefire in order to disrupt truce, the Russian center for Syrian reconciliation said in a newsletter published Sunday.

    "ISIS militants are taking efforts to capture elders and administration leaders of towns, field commanders of 'moderate' opposition, who had signed ceasefire agreements in order to set the ceasefire regime back," the newsletter published in English on the website of the Russian Defense Ministry said.

    It was added in the statement that the governors of country's Idlib and Latakia provinces held working sessions on the issues concerning stabilization in the settlements, which had been previously liberated by the government troops.

    The Russia-US brokered ceasefire was backed by the Syrian government and dozens of opposition groups on the ground. The Daesh and the Nusra Front (outlawed in Russia) are not part of the truce.
