So many aspects about Syria are never reported.
A week ago, Syrian rebels shelled visitors (naturally indiscriminately) to the Damascus International Fair. Nevertheless, the total number of the visitors who toured the ten-day Fair reached 2,247 million. Forty three countries staged exhibits.

2014.10.25.CourtenayComoxValleyPeaceGroupAction-01crAs of February 27 a cessation of hostilities began in Syria. The agreement applies to the parties to the Syrian conflict that indicate their commitment to and acceptance of its terms. It does not however apply to “Daesh,” “Jabhat al-Nusra,” or “other terrorist organizations designated by the UN Security Council,” which is part of the reason it is referred to as a cessation of hostilities rather than a ceasefire.

Aside from saying that U.S. support to the insurgents was a “provision of military support to illegal structures” that violates “the principles of modern international law and the United Nations Charter,” Putin pointed out that the militants being trained and armed by the U.S. were actually joining the so-called Islamic State.
