Russia: US 'unable to enforce' cessation of hostilities in Syria - MoD

One of Russia's deputy defence ministers stated in Moscow on Friday that the latest ceasefire regime in Syria did not last, in part because “[our] American partners were unable to enforce the cessation of hostilities by the moderate opposition."
Anatoli Antonov said that “from September 12 to 19 [opposition] troops violated the ceasefire 302 times, 83 civilians were killed, 252 people were wounded and government troops lost 153 people." He said that could be contrasted with “the observance of the cessation of hostilities by government forces in Syria” which was overseen by the Russian Reconciliation Centre. He noted that implementation of the ceasefire was controlled by “video cameras and unmanned aerial vehicles online."
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry agreed on a renewed truce in Geneva on September 9. The package of five documents was aimed at establishing a cessation of hostilities and promoting the resumption of the political process in Syria. Washington announced on Monday that it had suspended contact with Russia over Syria.
