Syria's main opposition grouping said it accepted a ceasefire deal announced by the United States and Russia on Monday if humanitarian "conditions" were met. The statement by the Riyadh-based High Negotiations Committee came hours after Moscow and Washington said a ceasefire in war-torn Syria was set to begin overnight Friday-Saturday. "After HNC general coordinator Riad Hijab presented the results of his discussions with opposition factions across all fronts, we agreed to respond positively to international efforts to reach a truce deal," the HNC said.
