RUSSIA SAYS HAS DEPLOYED FORCES TO POLICE SYRIA SAFE ZONES

Russia has deployed military police to monitor two safe zones being established in Syria, the defence ministry in Moscow said Monday.

Senior commander Sergei Rudskoi said Russian forces had set up checkpoints and observation posts around a zone in the south-west and in another one covering Eastern Ghouta, near Damascus.

The two areas are part of a broader Moscow-backed plan to create four "de-escalation zones" in rebel-held parts of Syria
