    Mohammed Alloush, leader of the Jaysh al-Islam group who heads the Syrian opposition's High Negotiations Committee at the intra-Syrian talks said that he did not call on to stop Syrian ceasefire.

    GENEVA (Sputnik) — The leader of the Jaysh al-Islam group who heads the Syrian opposition's High Negotiations Committee at the intra-Syrian talks told Sputnik on Sunday that he did not call on the ceasefire in the war-torn country to be canceled.

    Earlier in the day, Mohammed Alloush wrote in his Twitter that he does not agree to forget the idea of revolution and would support any position of battalions.

    "This is a message to defense groups. This is not an appeal for the escalation… It's just a call for self-defense forces against the triple attack in Aleppo by Kurds, IS [the Islamic State group banned in Russia] and the regime attracting outside forces," Mohammed Alloush said commenting on his statement.
