ALEPPO, Syria — There are signs of new life, and hope, in northern Syria.

On May 27, the Violet organization, with the cooperation of the Idlib Provincial Council, launched the Idlib Spring project in light of the de-escalation deal signed May 6 in Astana, Kazakhstan, between the Syrian regime and armed opposition factions. The deal, brokered by Russia and Turkey, has brought a relative calm in opposition-held areas, particularly Idlib city. The agreement establishes four de-escalation zones for a minimum of six months in Idlib province and parts of Aleppo, Hama and Latakia.
