The terrorists also violated the truce for the fourth day in the Idlib city near the Turkish border by firing 10 rockets at residential areas in the city’s Hay al-Tarameh district. A total of 20 civilians, including three children were killed in the rocket attacks.

Also, on the third day of the unilateral truce – as it is only respected by the Damascus government – FSA violated the ceasefire in the two Syrian cities of Aleppo and Deir al-Zour.

A mortar shell hit near a market in the city of Aleppo early Sunday morning, which left damages to the market, Taht al-Mahjar news agency reported.

The terrorists also attacked different districts of the city of Aleppo.

In the Eastern city of Deir al-Zour, the terrorists who attacked a security checkpoint in al-Halabieh district on Sunday were confronted by the Syrian security forces. An al-Qaeda leader in Syria, Ammar al-Hajr, was killed in the clashes, the report said.

The terrorists also attacked al-Roshdiyeh district in Deir al-Zour where the Syrian army killed a large number of terrorists, including Ghazvan al-Hossein also known as Abu Mosaab.

On Saturday, a car bomb blasted in Eastern Syria, the state-run television reported, saying that the terrorists violated the ceasefire for the second day in row.

The Syrian TV report said that a car bomb went off in front a church in Deir al-Zour in Eastern Syria on Saturday.

The report did not provide any further details on the possible number of casualties or damage to properties by the blast.

Another car bomb attack in Daf Shawk district of Damascus on Friday left five people killed and 32 others injured.

Also on Friday, a car bomb attack in the Southwestern Syrian city of Daraa killed 11 people.

The truce in Syria was put into effect on Friday after Syria’s General Command of Army declared truce for Eid al-Adha holidays.

The General Command, however, said in a statement on Thursday it would also respond to “terrorist groups trying to reinforce their positions by arming themselves and getting reinforcements” as well as neighboring countries facilitating the smuggling of fighters across borders during that period.

According to Syrian army sources, the truce will last until Monday.

UN-Arab League Special Envoy on Syria Lakhdar Brahimi had earlier proposed the ceasefire between the Syrian government forces and rebel groups during the four-day Eid al-Adha holiday.

The United Nations on Friday called on all parties involved in the unrest to respect the truce.
