DAMASCUS, Syria — The Syrian government and the main umbrella organization for Syrian opposition and rebel groups announced Tuesday their conditional acceptance of a partial cease-fire proposed by the United States and Russia that the international community hopes will bring the sides back to the negotiating table in Geneva for talks to end the war.
The announcement came after the United States and Russia agreed on a new “cessation of hostilities” for Syria that will take effect Saturday, even as major questions over enforcement were left unresolved.
