Syria truce hangs in balance amid attacks, lack of aid - AP
Syria’s week-long ceasefire, brokered by the United States and Russia, was in doubt Monday amid repeated violations and with no aid deliveries to the besieged opposition-held part of the northern city of Aleppo, a key point in the agreement, The Associated Press (AP) reported on Monday.

The uncertainty cast doubts on a U.S.-Russian plan to set up a coordination center that would plan strikes against ISIS in the country.

A senior Syrian opposition figure said the U.S.-Russia-brokered ceasefire that went into effect in Syria a week ago is now "clinically dead."

George Sabra of the High Negotiations Committee (HNC) told AP on Monday that the truce has been repeatedly violated and did not succeed in opening roads for aid to enter besieged opposition-held areas.

Seven days after the ceasefire went into effect, aid convoys have not been able to reach besieged opposition-held neighborhoods of Aleppo.

On Monday, the opposition reported 254 violations by Assad terrorists and their allies since the truce started on Sept. 12.
