ABU-DHABI, February 24. /TASS/. Damascus will regard as terrorist ones the groups refusing to observe the ceasefire among the rival parties involved in the intra-Syrian conflict, the Syrian Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Thursday.
"The armed groups refusing to observe the ceasefire in the country will be regarded [by the Syrian authorities] as terrorist," he said.
On Tuesday several groups affiliated with the so-called Free Syrian Army engaged in the armed struggle against government troops declared they would not agree to observe the armistice. They also refused to accept truce that does not apply to Jabhat al-Nusra (terrorist group outlawed in Russia).
Under the concluded agreements ceasefire in Syria is to take effect on February 27. It does not include the terrorist groups Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra (both groups are outlawed in Russia).
The armistice proposal has been generally accepted by the authorities in Damascus and the main group of the Syrian opposition sponsored by Saudi Arabia. At the same time according to the Syrian Foreign Ministry, the Syrian army will continue the struggle against the IS and Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists and other similar groups, including those linked with Al-Qaeda.
