Syrian rebel groups say they are suspending participation in the preparations for peace talks planned by Russia and Turkey for later this month.

In a statement, the rebels cited "many and large violations" of the ceasefire by the Syrian government as the reason for their move.

Turkey and Russia brokered the ceasefire deal that was mostly held since last Thursday.

The peace talks are due to be held in Astana, Kazakhstan.
