1.Russia declares ‘ceasefire’ as Syrians try to storm border post
Russia says its Syrian government allies are observing a ceasefire in rebel-held Idlib province.
It went into effect on Saturday morning.
The army, backed by Russian air power, has been waging a crushing offensive there for months – trying to take back the last major piece of opposition territory.
On Friday, Syrian civilians rushed towards the border with Turkey, demanding a complete end to the fighting.
Al Jazeera’s Bernard Smith reports from Antakya, near Turkey’s border with Syria.
