BEIRUT (AP) — Syria's two main political opposition groups agreed on Thursday on a unified "roadmap" for a political solution to the country's long-running civil war, representatives of the groups said.
The two parties have been trying for years to reach a common understanding on how to end the war in Syria. Their agreement came as the U.N. envoy, Staffan de Mistura, was in Damascus to press efforts to find a political solution to the country's war.
But violence continued on the ground and suspected Islamic State militants fired at a Turkish military outpost from inside Syrian territory on Thursday, killing a Turkish soldier and wounding two others.
