yria's army command says it will cooperate with a four-day ceasefire during the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha. The truce, proposed by U.N. peace envoy Lakhdar Brahimi, will begin Friday. The army also said it reserves the right to retaliate against rebel attacks, should the opposition fail to uphold its side of the deal — leaving little hope that the ceasefire would do much to quell violence. The announcement from the Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad came as rebels said they had advanced into several areas in the center of Aleppo, Syria's largest city and a key battleground in recent months.
