Rebels’ representatives in truce, Astana peace talks

(Zaman Al Wasl)- Syrian activists shed light on the armed opposition’s two representatives in the ongoing nationwide ceasefire that had been brokered by Russia and Turkey that went into force at midnight (2200 GMT on Thursday).

Monzer Sarras, 53, and Osama Ma’termawi, 30, were chosen by 12 rebel factions in Syria to sign the third truce this year as well to choose the delegation who will attend the planned Astana peace talks on Feb.8 to find solution for the nearly 6-year-old war that claimed lives of half million Syrians and displaced millions.

Sarras is the commander of Faylaq al-Sham, key rebel unit in the provinces of Homs, Aleppo, Idlib and Hama.
