Syria Cease-Fire Plan: Can It Work?
Syria peace deal: US and Russia agreed
to a plan to reduce violence
leading to ‘political transition’
The Daily Walk with Miracles, September 12, 2016, by Paul Evans. Article excerpts from Syrian cease-fire backed by U.S. and Russia gets off to rocky start, The Washington Post, September 12, 2016, by Liz Sly and Karen DeYoung, Syria Cease-Fire Enters Into Effect, but Rebels Don’t Commit, ABC News, September 12, 2016, by Philip Issa and Bassem Mrque of The Associated Press, The Independent, September 9, 2016, by Tim Walker (excerpt) @timwalker, and Sky News, September 9, 2016, by Sky News. Video is Switzerland: US and Russia agree on Syria peace plan, YouTube news video — 2:58. Secretary of State John Kerry has said that this is the “last chance… to save a unified Syria.” The featured photograph is actually one of a quilt in the basement of Trinity United Church of Christ in Wooster, Ohio, where the poor and anyone else who wants to can be treated to a free breakfast five days a week.
The first week of the truce will be crucial. During that time, all fighting between the military of President Bashar Assad and rebels is to stop. But, Assad’s forces can continue air strikes against the Islamic State group and al-Qaida-linked insurgents from the group once known as the Nusra Front.
BEIRUT — A U.S.- and Russian-backed cease-fire agreement that went into effect Monday was almost immediately violated, diluting hopes for an imminent halt to the relentless violence that has raged for the past five years and raising new questions about U.S. policies aimed at ending the war.
Residents and activists of the besieged rebel portion of Aleppo said that Syrian government helicopters had dropped barrel bombs on one neighborhood of the city and that loyalist forces were shelling a route intended to be used for the delivery of humanitarian aid. Pro-government media accused the rebels of launching a new attack in the southern province of Quneitra, and there were reports of airstrikes and artillery shelling in other parts of the country.
How The Syria Peace Deal Came About
Paul Evans: Essentially Assad’s Syrian government is supposed to make a cease fire with the “Free Syrian rebels,” the U.S. backed force, who have fiercely fought each other. The cease fire will supposedly take place on September 12th, at sundown, and that time has already come in Syria, with mixed results. The civil war in Syria has already claimed 500,000 lives. There is a good indication that both Assad and the Free Syrian rebels are prepared to comply, or at least may in many ways comply, with the cease fire. The U.S. and Russia then plan to work together “in a coordinated way” to crush ISIS in eastern Syria and western Iraq.
See The Independent:
The US and Russia have agreed a peace deal for Syria, with a nationwide ceasefire between government forces and rebel groups set to begin early next week. Speaking in Geneva in the early hours of Saturday, US Secretary of State John Kerry said the agreement could be a “turning point” for the war-torn country if it can be implemented.
Mr Kerry said the plan was intended “to reduce violence, ease suffering and resume movement towards a negotiated peace and a political transition in Syria.”
The arrangement is set to go into effect with a cessation of hostilities from sunset next Monday, 12 September, between the Syrian government forces of President Bashar al-Assad, who is supported by Russia, and US-backed opposition rebels. The deal requires both the rebels and the regime in Damascus “to meet their obligations,” Mr Kerry said.
