Russia to unilaterally start using force against violators of Syria truce

Russia warned it will act unilaterally starting on Tuesday to end alleged violations of the "cessation of hostilities" agreement, unless Moscow and Washington urgently reach an agreement to deal with attacks, Reuters reported.


The Russian military has accused the US of dragging its feet on responding to Moscow’s proposals on rules for joint monitoring of the Syria ceasefire and response to violations, saying delays are leading to "civilian casualties."


Lieutenant General Sergei Rudskoi of the Russian General Staff said in a statement on Monday that if the US fails to respond to its proposals on a joint response, the Russian military will have to start unilaterally using force against those who break the truce - starting on Tuesday.


The agreement between Assad regime and opposition fighters has largely held, but there have been a number of violations. Assad terrorists’ violations started to increase in the last two days especially in Damascus eastern countryside.


Groups considered to be terrorist organisations by the United Nations - such as al-Nusra Front and ISIS - have been excluded from the ceasefire.
