Syria army, rebels agree new Damascus area truce
BABBILA - Syria's army and rebels agreed a truce in the capital's southern suburb of Babbila Monday, the latest in a series of local ceasefires in Damascus flashpoints, an AFP reporter said.

 

The truces come more than a year into fierce daily battles in and around several areas of the city that have led to rebels and President Bashar Assad's forces deciding to compromise, with neither side able to claim victory.

 

In addition to Babbila, deals have been struck for local ceasefires in Qudsaya, Moadamiyet al-Sham, Barzeh, Beit Sahem, Yalda and Yarmuk Palestinian refugee camp. (AFP)
