Temporary Ceasefire in Idlib

“Russia reinforces Syria before Putin-Erdogan talks – flight and shipping data” – Reuters

Fresh evidence of a Russian build-up in Syria before the Putin-Erdogan talks, held yesterday. 

Today, I have so far not seen a sane and balanced report of the outcome of those joint Russian/Turkey talks (so I will not share any of them at this time) but it seems that a ceasefire has been agreed.  Details are short and will be important, when known.

As I have said before, the temporary nature of such a ceasefire is guaranteed, if it even takes place.  The stakes are too high for any kind of compromise, and the main combatants (apart from Turkey) remain unrepresented, to make this agreement anything more than a showpiece for the parties involved. 

More, when known.
