I saw this piece on LifeNews. Correspondent Artur Kebekov reports via phone line from Daraa, Syria, with accompanying video, where he is interviewing local residents about their attitude towards the ceasefire.
Recall that the ceasefire agreement was signed on 22 February by Russian and American Presidents Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama. The ceasefire agreement (between Syrian army and various opposing militias) comes into effect at midnight 27 February.
1:45 minutes in – The man being interviewed, who is a resident of Daraa, says that any armed groupings who are not official government forces – are terrorists. For this reason, he is personally opposed to the ceasefire. He holds no confidence that the terrorists will hold up their end of the deal. Therefore, he cannot see how the ceasefire will be successful.
2:00 minutes in – Another man expresses his confidence that the Syrian army will observe the ceasefire. He expresses his hope that the other armed parties to the conflict will also observe the ceasefire.
2:14 minutes in – This man says: “Tomorrow the ceasefire will come into effect. The Syrian army and government have been, for quite a long time, the only parties who are making any effort to defend the people and preserve the unity of the nation. We hope that the other side [of the conflict] will take the same action.”
2:30 minutes in – This man says: “The ceasefire agreement is a good initiative. We very much hope that soon security and stability will return to our lives. And all of this is thanks to the Syrian army.”
