Hezbollah leader confirms localised ceasefire deal in Syria

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah confirmed on Friday that a deal had been reached between Syrian pro-government forces and insurgents in two areas of the country that included a six-month ceasefire. The deal, which would see rebels withdraw from a town near the border with Lebanon and the evacuation of besieged civilians from two villages in the northwest, would take place in two stages, Nasrallah said in a live interview with Al-Manar TV. Reuters reported the deal on Thursday.
