US Backed ’FSA’ Rejects Ceasefire, Threats to Withdraw from Geneva Talks
Local Editor

Once again it was proven that the so-called moderate militants in Syria are nothing but hidden version of extremists.

The so-called "Free Syrian Army" has refused to recognize partial ceasefires or local lulls in violence, claiming that if the UN-backed truce is not implemented in full, the group reserves its right to withdraw from the Geneva talks and respond to any attacks.

The loose coalition of armed opposition groups, united under the US-backed umbrella organization dubbed the Free Syrian Army, issued an official statement on Sunday, in which it claimed that any attack on their individual units will be treated as one on the whole bloc after its formation.

"We - the armed groups from across Syria will form a single bloc, any offensive that takes place in an area where our units are present, will be regarded as an attack against all the units throughout the Syrian territory, and we reserve the right to respond to it," the group said in a statement endorsed by 37 military units.

The "FSA" also rejected the "regime of silence" currently in place in parts of Damascus and Latakia provinces, with negotiations currently underway to extend it to Aleppo as well.

The organization slammed the idea of a partial ceasefire in selected areas, saying that they will only accept a full-scale truce that concerns all regions.
"We will never under any circumstances accept the principle of divisibility or regional truces," the FSA statement added.

Meanwhile, the Russian Center for Reconciliation in Syria, which is working on implementing the UN-backed Syria peace roadmap as well as regional ceasefires, said that active negotiations have been taking place in the area of embattled Aleppo and that recently an agreement has been reached with two of Aleppo's settlements. As of May 1 the number of settlements which joined the truce reached 85, the center reported.

At the same time some 3.5 tons of humanitarian aid were brought to Damascus and Aleppo provinces, Russia's Defense Ministry said in a statement on Sunday adding that similar convoys are to be delivered to Homs and Hama provinces.
