The Russian military said the ceasefire applied to the Idlib de-escalation zone and had led to a significant reduction in violence on Wednesday.

Intensive shelling continued to target towns and cities in southern Idlib countryside and northern Hama countryside after midnight, when the ceasefire was supposed to take effect.

REGIME FORCES KILLED AT LEAST 25 IN LAST WEEK

Assad forces’ aerial strikes on Monday killed at least 25 civilians, in northwestern Syria in the sixth week of a Russian-led military that has so far killed hundreds of civilians, according to residents and civil rescuers.

Syria has been locked in a vicious civil war since early 2011, when the Bashar al-Assad regime cracked down on pro-democracy protests with unexpected ferocity.

Since then, hundreds of thousands of people have been killed and more than 10 million others displaced, according to UN officials.
