MOSCOW. May 19 (Interfax) - The Syrian army ceased fire in the Idlib de-escalation area on midnight of May 18, while militants continued their attacks, injuring three Syrian soldiers, the Center for reconciliation of opposing sides in Syria said.
"Starting at 00:00 hours on May 18, the armed forces of Syrian Arab Republic have unilaterally ceased fire in the Idlib de-escalation area.
