A number of Syrian opposition factions operating in the coastal region of Syria on Monday (July 16th) signed a ceasefire agreement in Cairo, Egypt’s Ahram Online reported.
The agreement was signed under the sponsorship of the Egyptian General Intelligence, and is guaranteed by Russia and by the Cairo-based al-Ghad al-Souri (Syria's Tomorrow) movement, led by Ahmad al-Jarba.
The deal included an agreement on participation in efforts to combat terrorism, working towards reaching a political settlement to the Syrian crisis, the return of refugees and internally displaced persons, and the releasing of detainees.
Other Syrian armed factions in the north Homs countryside, including Jaish al-Tawhid, also have signed an agreement to join the efforts to combat terrorism in Syria and found a peace and security force in the area.
The leaders of the factions signed the agreement during meetings in Cairo.
