Russia and Turkey Agree on Ceasefire in Syria

Turkey and Russia have agreed on a ceasefire plan in Syria, except for areas where government forces are fighting terrorist groups.

The plan could go into effect Wednesday night.

Turkey's state-run Anadolu news agency reports if the cease-fire is successful, negotiations will start in the capital of Kazakhstan.

Anadolu also reporting the civil war in Syria has been going on since 2011 when the Bashar al-Assad regime cracked down on pro-democracy protests. 

Russia backed President Bashar al-Assad, while Turkey supported the rebellion.

According to the United Nations more than a quarter of a million people have been killed in the war.
