Urfa, Syria− The Joint Chamber for Ahl al-Sham (which comprises rebel groups of the Islamic Front, Jabht al-Nusra and al-Mujahedin Army) signed an agreement on provisional armistice with the Kurdish forces of the Popular Protection Units (YPG) in Aleppo city and its rural areas.

The agreement, of which ARA News received a copy, stipulates “restraining the siege on Nubl and Zahraa regions in Aleppo province” where the majority are Syrian regime-proponents.

The seven-item agreement, ending with the signature of the two parties, allows each signatory party to pass through the roads and checkpoints of the other party, via preapproval and official correspondences that point out the destination and the vehicles used. 

The agreement also stipulates on releasing the prisoners of each party, facilitating livelihood needs of the residents living in YPG-held areas, and not establishing any military points unless they have the approval of the other party.

The agreement period is six extendable months. 

This is the first agreement of its kind comprising all these forces in a mutual armistice after witnessing many occasional clashes among them in Aleppo province, northern Syria.
