A week-old Syrian ceasefire brokered by the United States and Russia is in deep trouble on Monday after a rebel official said they're planning for a full resumption of fighting.
The ceasefire came was interrupted over the weekend when Russia said jets from the U.S.-led coalition against Islamic State killed more than 60 Syrian soldiers in eastern Syria.
The agreement is the second ceasefire negotiated by Washington and Moscow this year in the hope of advancing a political end to a war now in its sixth year, which has killed hundreds of thousands of people.
While it has led to a significant reduction in fighting over the past week, violence has been increasing in recent days.
A planned delivery of humanitarian aid to besieged rebel-held districts of eastern Aleppo - one of the first steps in the deal - has been repeatedly postponed.
