The cease-fire agreement between the Russians and the Al-Rahman Legion was born dead, after the regime's forces escalated their shelling of the neighborhood of Al-Jobar and Ein-Terma during the past hours.

Although the truce was supposed to be implemented at 9:00 pm on Friday night between the regime forces and the Syrian opposition with a Russian guarantee, the region witnessed an escalation by the Assad forces.

This tool place after the implementation of the cease-fire agreement, where the activists monitored a number of surface-to-surface missiles in the area between Jobar and Ein Terma, in addition to the fall of five artillery shells, one of which contains chlorine gas poison in the neighborhood of Jobar, resulting in the suffocation of four civilians.

This escalation was accompanied by intermittent clashes between the Al-Rahman Legion on the one hand and the regime forces and their loyal supporters on the other, on the axis of Al-Manashir in the Jobar district.

The agreement also instructs the lifting of the siege on the eastern regions of Ghouta on the basis of preserving the benefits of the political process.
