On September 9, Russia and the US reached a ceasefire agreement in Syria.
The agreement entered into force on September 12 and was supposed to last seven days, after which steps would be taken toward the Syrian peace settlement.
The ceasefire fell apart promptly after seven days, when the US air force provided air cover for ISIS by attacking Syrian army positions.
In an interview with the Rossiya 1 TV channel,Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova noted…
“In the time that was supposed to be used to implement the agreements, Nusra regrouped, replenished its supplies, including weapons, changed its disposition.”
Members of the Jabhat Fatah al Sham (also known as al-Nusra Front, or Jabhat al-Nusra) extremist group in Syria used the recent US-Russia peace agreement to regroup near the city of Aleppo, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said.
The spokeswoman explained that the US-Russia peace agreement on Syria reached in September was supposed to ensure that none of the conflicting sides in Syria use humanitarian corridors for weapons supplies. According to Zakharova, while the Syrian government forces fulfilled the agreements, “on the other side nobody moved a finger” to follow through with the deal.
The million dollar question is who rearmed and replenished the Al Qaeda, Al Nusra, and ISIS jihadist proxy army during the ceasefire? Any guesses?
