No ceasefire has taken hold across Syria today. In lieu of peace, the conflict continues to rage with bombings, sieges, starvation, deaths and displacement. United Nations(UN) Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura has confirmed that the resumption of peace talks that had been slated for February 25, will not happen.
Therefore, Syria's peace is on hold because of historic and current reasons. Current Russian involvement in the conflict on the side of the despot Bashar al Assad threatens to expand and to lengthen the five-year-old war. Russian bombings of some opposition groups, hospitals and a school have already spawned a rage across Syria with some groups threatening not to participate in any peace process to which Russia is privy.
The historic feud between Turkey and the Kurds in the region also threatens Syria's peace. Turkey has accused Kurdish forces fighting the Islamic State(IS) of committing terrorist acts within Turkey and the NATO member has been bombing Kurdish positions within Syria close to the Turkish border.
So with the advent of Russia into the Syrian war and with Turkey fighting a historic feud with one of the main fighting groups within Syria, peace to Syria remains a figment of the imagination at this time and so is any chance of a ceasefire that was promised one-week-ago.
