Opposition factions in northwestern Syria have signed a ceasefire agreement with Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), Orient correspondent said.

The deal announced on Thursday (Jan. 9) provides for an immediate cessation of hostilities, an exchange of detainees, the lifting of all checkpoints inside the region, and its unification under the authority of the Salvation Government.

The deal brings an immediate end to the fighting between HTS and the National Front for Liberation (NLF).

The deal sees Ahrar al-Sham and Suqur al-Sham stand down, as areas they once held come under the authority of the Salvation Government.

Last week, HTS seized dozens of villages from Noureddine al-Zinki.

The clashes between HTS and its NLF in Idlib had killed dozens of people, including children, since the start of 2019.
