Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called Tuesday for the closure of Syria's border with Turkey to cut off outside supplies to "terrorists", including through humanitarian convoys. "Of course, neither in ceasefire agreements, nor in the process of political settlement is there a place for terrorists and extremists," Lavrov told the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva. "A very special task is to cut the terrorists' supply from the outside. For this purpose it is important to close the Syrian-Turkish border, since across this border those gangs receive arms, including with humanitarian convoys," Lavrov said, according to an official transcript in English of his remarks.

Jordanian security forces killed seven Islamist militants in armed clashes with Islamic State sympathizers in the northern city of Irbid near the Syrian border, a security source said on Wednesday. One Jordanian police officer was also killed in the security operation against militants holed up in the city, which began on Tuesday night and ended at dawn, the source said. It was one of the largest sweeps against sleeper cells of sympathizers of hardline Islamist groups in recent years, according to officials. More»

Syria's opposition said that what it called continued violations by the Syrian government and its allies of a US-Russia truce deal would make the resumption of UN-backed negotiations "unattainable". In a letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, the opposition also said violations would undermine "international efforts to guarantee the continuation of the truce and will lead to the collapse of the UN-adopted political process. Syrian military sources deny violations. "The goal of accepting the temporary truce is to..help in implementing humanitarian articles of UNSG concord 2254. However, the lack of progress in this would push us to look for other ways to protect Syrian people. So there must a firm security council position on this before its too late." More»

A twin suicide bombing claimed by Islamic State killed 70 people in a Shi'ite district of Baghdad on Sunday in the deadliest attack inside the capital this year, as militants launched an assault on its western outskirts. Police sources said the suicide bombers were riding motorcycles and blew themselves up in a crowded mobile phone market in Sadr City, wounding more than 100 people in addition to the dead. A Reuters witness saw pools of blood on the ground with slippers, shoes and mobile phones at the site of the blasts, which was sealed off to prevent further attacks. In a statement circulated online, Islamic State said it was responsible for the blasts: "Our swords will not cease to cut off the heads of the rejectionist polytheists, wherever they are," it said, using derogatory terms for Shi'ite Muslims. Iraqi forces backed by airstrikes from a U.S.-led coalition have driven Islamic State back in the western Anbar province recently and are preparing for an offensive to retake the northern city of Mosul. But the militants are still able to strike outside territory they control, often targeting members of Iraq's Shi'ite majority, most recently on Thursday when two Islamic State suicide bombers killed 15 people at a mosque in the capital.

Syria's fragile ceasefire entered its second day on Sunday, with battlezones across the war-scarred country largely quiet for the first time in five years despite some sporadic breaches. The temporary truce, brokered by Washington and Moscow, is seen as a crucial step towards ending a conflict that has claimed 270,000 lives and displaced more than half the population. It survived a shaky first day, during which state media said shells were fired on the capital while rebels also accused government forces of "violations". "I think this is the first time we've woken up without the sound of shelling," said Ammar al-Rai, a 22-year-old medical student in Damascus. An international task force set up to monitor the fighting co-chaired by the United States and Russia said Saturday had been largely successful. More»

Guns fell silent across Syria on Saturday after a landmark UN-backed ceasefire came into effect, as a special task force led by rivals Moscow and Washington prepared to begin monitoring the fledgling truce. On the stroke of midnight, firing stopped in suburbs around the capital and the devastated northern city of Aleppo, AFP correspondents said, after a day of intense Russian air strikes on rebel bastions across the country. Monitoring group the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said it was quiet in the north of Latakia province and in the central provinces of Homs and Hama. The nationwide cessation of hostilities is the first pause in five years of a civil war that has claimed more than 270,000 lives. "I can't hide the fact that I'm happy the war has stopped, even for a few minutes," 24-year-old regime soldier Abdel Rahman Issa said from a battlefield on the eastern outskirts of Damascus. "If it continues like this, maybe we can go home." United Nations envoy Staffan de Mistura said peace talks would resume on March 7 if the agreement holds and more aid is delivered -- a key sticking point in negotiations for a truce. Fighting appears to have "calmed down", he told reporters shortly after midnight, adding that a special task force would meet in Geneva on Saturday to monitor the ceasefire. Moscow and Washington, co-chairs of the task force which back opposing sides in Syria, have set up rival offices to monitor the truce along with a UN operation centre and would be first to deal with any infractions. "The important point... is if (any) incidents will be quickly brought under control and contained," de Mistura said, adding that "a military response should be... the last resort". Previous attempts to end the violence in Syria have failed and both Russia and the US have warned that stopping fighting on the ground will be difficult. Analysts have also questioned whether the ceasefire can be effective on Syria's complex battlefields, as it does not include militants from the Islamic State group and Al-Nusra Front. Intermittent clashes between pro-regime forces and both groups continued after midnight, the Observatory said, as well as fighting between militants and Kurdish forces. Less than an hour before the ceasefire began, the UN Security Council gave its unanimous backing to the truce in a resolution drafted by the US and Russia. US Ambassador Samantha Power acknowledged there was "some scepticism" as to whether the ceasefire would last, but said it offered the "best chance to reduce the violence". A spokesman for Turkey's presidency expressed worries over the ceasefire "because of the continuing Russian air raids and ground attacks by forces of (President Bashar al-) Assad". Russia began air strikes in Syria in September saying it was targeting "terrorists", but critics have accused Moscow of hitting rebel forces in support of the regime. Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said the agreement could be "a turning point" in the war, even as Russian planes launched a wave of attacks on non-jihadist rebel areas. The Observatory reported Russian strikes Friday on rebel bastions including the Eastern Ghouta region outside Damascus, northern Homs province and the west of Aleppo province. The head of the Britain-based monitor, Rami Abdel Rahman, said at least 40 members of the regime forces were killed battling rebels in northern Latakia province. Russian President Vladimir Putin insisted Moscow would continue targeting "terrorist groups". "The decisive fight against them will, without doubt, be continued," he said in televised remarks. "There is no other way." Moscow backs Assad and Washington supports the opposition, but both have made a concerted push for the ceasefire to be respected. Speaking in Washington on Thursday, President Barack Obama put the onus firmly on the regime and Russia, saying the "world will be watching" whether they keep to the truce. US State Department spokesman Mark Toner said Washington had received assurances from Moscow that it would not bomb the "moderate opposition" after the truce. "I don't know how to put it any better than saying: 'It's put up or shut up time,'" he told reporters. Iran, another key Assad ally, has said it is confident the regime will abide by the agreement. But rebel groups on the ground have been less optimistic, and Al-Nusra's chief Mohammad al-Jolani on Friday urged regime opponents to intensify their attacks. More»

The United Nations on Wednesday carried out its first humanitarian airdrop in Syria to reach thousands of people facing severe food shortages in a city besieged by Islamic State group. "Earlier this morning, a WFP plane dropped the first cargo of 21 tonnes of items into Deir Ezzor," in eastern Syria, UN aid chief Stephen O'Brien said. Reports from aid teams on the ground confirm that "pallets have landed in the target area as planned", he told a UN Security Council called to discuss the humanitarian crisis. UN agencies are working to scale up aid deliveries to Syria before a cessation of hostilities enters into force at midnight Friday to shore up peace efforts. Last month, Russia said it had dropped aid into Deir Ezzor, where some 200,000 people are in dire need of food and medicine since IS fighters surrounded the city about a year ago. More»
