Since August 31, at the initiative of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Turkey, the Syrian army unilaterally announced a ceasefire in the entire Idlib de-escalation zone, which was notified to all parties to the conflict.

By striking the Idlib de-escalation zone in Syria, the United States jeopardized the continued maintenance of the ceasefire, and thwarted it in several directions. This is stated by the Center for the Reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria.

It is notable that from 06:00 on August 31, 2019, at the initiative of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Turkey, the Syrian army unilaterally announced a ceasefire in the entire Idlib de-escalation zone, which was notified to all parties to the conflict.

Over the past day, government forces have ensured rigorous fulfillment of their obligations. The combat flights of the Russian Aerospace Forces and the Syrian Air Force are completely stopped.

However, at 3 p.m. on August 31, 2019, the United States launched an air strike in the area between the settlements of Maaret Misrin and Kafer Haya in the province of Idlib.

According to the statement of the American side, the “control post of the Al-Qaeda group in Syria” was destroyed by a strike, which threatened the safety of US citizens.

the Center for the Reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria emphasized that the blow was inflicted in violation of all previously reached agreements, while the Russian or Turkish side was not notified of the planned actions. In the areas affected by the American strike, there are numerous casualties and destruction.
