Militants in Syria's Idlib not complying with ceasefire: Russian Foreign MinistryTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club(YJC)_The ministry, in a statement released on Monday, announced that the militants wreaking havoc on the restive area have re-armed, and are now taking counter-offensive action there, Interfax news agency reported.

The statement further highlighted that terrorists in Idlib must either be eliminated or prosecuted.

On Sunday, Russia and Turkey cut short their first joint patrol in Idlib after Takfiri militants cut off the strategic M4 highway, according to witnesses and Russian news agencies.

The extremists reportedly rejected the presence of Russian forces, and claimed the agreement did not guarantee their re-settlement after being pushed out of the region.

Militants, some waving flags of the so-called and Turkish-backed Syrian National Army, climbed atop Turkish tanks or stood in the path of Russian armored vehicles, according to witnesses. 

The Russian Defense Ministry later announced that the joint patrols were cut short because of militant “provocations” and civilians being used as human shields, adding that they were forced to take a shorter route, Russia’s state-run RIA news agency reported.
