BEIRUT - A spokesman for Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, formerly called the Nusra Front, criticized a nationwide Turkish- and Russian-backed ceasefire in Syria on Friday, saying the political solution under this agreement would "reproduce the criminal regime".

The group, which changed its name and announced in July that it was severing ties with al Qaeda, condemned the deal for not mentioning President Bashar Assad's fate.

"The solution is to topple the criminal regime militarily," he said in a statement.
