Lebanon’s militant Hezbollah group, which is taking part in Syria’s civil war, says it supports the cease-fire but vows to continue fighting against the Islamic State group and al-Qaida’s affiliate.
Hezbollah’s media arm known as the Military Media says the “allies of Syria” abide by whatever the Syrian government decides. The Military Media said late Saturday that the truce is an opportunity that everyone should take for the interest of the Syrian people.
The group vowed to repel any attack its members are subjected to during the truce.
Hezbollah has sent thousands of fighters to Syria to back President Bashar Assad’s forces.
The announcement came after the Syrian government said it supports the U.S.-Russia agreement adding that it will cease its military operations in Aleppo.
