    The ceasefire in Syria “is not dead” and the International Syria Support Group (ISSG) is likely to have further discussions this week, US Secretary of State John Kerry told reporters on Tuesday.

    NEW YORK (Sputnik) — On Monday, the Syrian army declared that the ceasefire ended because of numerous violations by the rebels. Over a week of the truce, Syrian opposition attacked some 300 times.

    “The ceasefire is not dead,” Kerry said following an ISSG meeting on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly.

    He added that the group will likely meet on Friday “on some specific steps” that can be taken in Syria.
