moscow - Russia has entered into an agreement for the escalation of the conflict with rebels on the eastern shore of the Syrian capital of Damascus. The Russian Ministry of Defense announced on Saturday that the agreement in Cairo was reached with Egypt as a mediator.
The agreement sets out the areas where the government or the rebels have their influence. There are also agreements about a ceasefire and where the routes are for assistance. Along those routes, wounds must be taken to hospitals in the coming days. Moscow has not specified exactly which group of rebels has been negotiated in Cairo.
In the Syrian civil war, many locally-operating rebel groups fight against the government of President Bashar al-Assad. Assad is rumored by the Kremlin.
