A key rebel alliance in Syria's Idlib has said it was opposed to the deployment of Russian forces in a demilitarized zone to be set up under a Turkey-Russia deal for the opposition bastion.The deal agreed last month between Ankara and Moscow provides for the establishment of a U-shaped buffer zone around Idlib that would be free of both militants and heavy weapons.The accord over Idlib was reached on Sept. 17 by Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan in the Russian resort town of Sochi.Under the agreement, all factions in the planned buffer area must hand over their heavy weapons by Oct. 10 and radical groups must withdraw by Oct. 15 .
