    On the streets of Damascus, many were encouraged by the chemical weapons deal agreed by the US and Russia in Geneva.

    Syrian newspaper headlines on September 15 highlighted that the plan does not mention the use of military force.

    Fadia Deeb, a lawmaker in Syria's parliament, said the breakthrough was a sign that international diplomacy could help to end the civil war.
