A ceasefire that came into effect on Friday night has brought some respite for people living in southern Idlib and northern Hama in northwest Syria.

But the truce is conditional and puts pressure on Turkey to create a demilitarised zone around Idlib province, free of weapons and fighters in line with the so-called Sochi Memorandum.
