BEIRUT - The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said government forces clashed with rebels in the northwestern Syrian province of Hama, shortly after a Russian-led deal to create de-escalation zones took effect on Friday.

The Britain-based war monitoring group said the warring sides exchanged shelling and were fighting in a rebel-held village and nearby areas of the Hama countryside.

The Russian defense ministry had said the deal would come into force at midnight, with the first and largest zone including Idlib province and adjoining districts of Hama, Aleppo and Latakia.
