    The Syrian army said that the ceasefire would be in force in Syria for seven days starting from Monday evening.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – On Friday, Russia and the United States announced a new plan aimed at reducing violence in Syria, which includes a new nationwide ceasefire starting at 16:00 GMT on September 12.

    The agreement also includes the creation of a demilitarized zone around Syria's Aleppo to deliver humanitarian aid to the city, as well as close coordination of Russian and US airstrikes against Jabhat Fatah Al-Sham, formerly known as al-Nusra Front, and Daesh terrorist groups operating in Syria.

    "A regime of calm will be implemented across all territory of the Syrian Arab Republic for seven days from 19:00 [16:00 GMT] on September 12, 2016 until 23:59 on September 18, 2016," the army said, as quoted by the SANA news agency.
