DAMASCUS, SYRIA (0:00 P.M.) – On Thursday, the largest coalition of Islamist groups in southern Syria said they refused to participate in a US-Russian brokered cessation of hostilities stretching across Quneitra, Daraa and western Sweida.

Thus, clashes between Islamist forces and the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed across all three provinces in southern Syria on Friday with both sides exchanging artillery fire with one another. Effectively, the ceasefire held for less than a week.
