Truce in Syria’s Aleppo extended for 72 hours

0

ALEPPO: A temporary truce in the Syrian battleground city of Aleppo was extended for 72 hours Saturday, as clashes raged further south. The extended pause in fighting for Aleppo comes as international condemnation mounted over deadly air strikes on a camp for displaced people in northern Syria, which the regime and its Russian ally have denied responsibility for. Russia’s defense ministry said the fragile ceasefire had been extended “in order to prevent the situation from worsening” just minutes before the initial 48-hour truce for the city was due to expire.
