New Syria fighting despite UN-backed truce

Published: 10.28.12, 12:06 / Israel News

Activists say Syrian regime forces are shelling suburbs of the capital of Damascus on the third day of what was meant to be a four-day holiday cease-fire. They say government troops and rebels are also clashing in several areas of the country.

A UN-backed truce declared for the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha has largely unraveled. Activists say more than 150 people were killed Friday, the start of the holiday, and more than 120 people on the second day, on par with previous daily casualty tolls. (AP)
