Syrian rebel groups to attend Astana peace talks

Beirut (AFP) – Syrian rebel groups will attend talks in the Kazakh capital next week aimed at bringing an end to the country’s nearly six-year war, rebel officials told AFP on Monday. 

“All the rebel groups are going. Everyone has agreed,” said Mohammad Alloush, a leading figure in the Jaish al-Islam (Army of Islam) rebel group. 

Ahmad al-Othman from the Sultan Murad faction also told AFP that “the rebel groups have decided to go to the talks.”
