UN Truce Thwarted by Syrian Opposition's Infighting

The failure of the Syrian opposition groups to maintain a united front in the Syria talks is to mainly blame for the unraveling of a recent UN-sponsored truce, a lawmaker said.
Describing the differences between the opposition factions as "fundamental", Yahya Kamalipour said, "Regrettably, there is no accord and coordination among them in complying with the ceasefire. This rendered previous agreements ineffective too."
Speaking in an interview with ICANA on Friday, he added that a clearer distinction needs to be drawn formally between opposition and terrorist groups.
In recent weeks, hundreds of people have died in the fighting in Syria's eastern Ghouta, a swath of towns and farms outside Damascus that is the last major rebel-controlled area near the capital.
The fighting has continued in defiance of a UN resolution on February 24 demanding a 30-day truce across the country.
