Syrian rebel coalition say cease-fire with Hezbollah fighters in Syria collapsed

A coalition of Syrian rebels say a cease-fire negotiated with Hezbollah fighters in a Syrian town and two Shiite villages in northern Syria has collapsed, for the second time this month.

The Islamic Army, or Jaysh Fatah group, said on its social media accounts that its fighters have resumed targeting locations of Hezbollah fighters near Foua, a Shiite village in Idlib province, posting a video of the shelling.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the Local Coordination Committees of Syria, both groups with an extensive network of activists on the ground, say fighting also resumed Saturday in the town of Zaabadani, near the Lebanese border.

Iranian-mediated talks have focused on securing safe passage for rebels and civilians out of Zabadani in exchange for allowing in humanitarian aid.
