Despite calls for a ceasefire, Idlib and Aleppo continue to witness heavy fighting between the forces of the Syrian Government and Opposition, with the increasing involvement of Turkish troops threatening to increase the geopolitical stakes.
A ceasefire in Idlib agreed between Moscow and Ankara was violated just hours after it came into force. With the Syrian Government and Opposition factions blaming each-other for the violations, the future of this latest ceasefire remains uncertain.
