Syrian opposition warns of halting Astana talks over government breaches

Free Syrian Army fighters stand in the east of the rebel-held town of Dael, in Deraa Governorate, Syria, Jan. 3, 2017.

Syrian rebel groups say they are halting preparations for peace talks planned by Russia and Turkey for later this month, the BBC wrote.

A statement, signed by a number of groups, cited “many big breaches” of the ceasefire by the Syrian government and its allies as the reason, it added.

The ceasefire deal was brokered by Turkey and Russia last Thursday and has mostly held since then, according to the BBC.

The peace talks were due to take place in Astana, Kazakhstan.
