Syria’s Ceasefire Collapses, With Fighting and Airstrikes Reported
Four-Day Ceasefire Didn't Last the Whole Holiday

The four-day Eid al-Adha ceasefire period isn’t quite finished yet, but the ceasefire is well and truly over, with clashes reported in several cities and the Syrian military resuming air strikes, with reports of nearly 100 killed nationwide as both sides pick up where they left off.
The ceasefire didn’t last very long at all, the first two of the four days saw relative calm (with bombings mixed in) and now the situation seems to be right back where it was before it was announced, with regime and rebels looking for new offensives.
Neither side seemed to think the ceasefire would lead to anything more permanent, and even with the international community pushing the matter it wasn’t even able to survive a long weekend. Where this leaves Special Envoy Lakhdar Brahimi is unclear​.
Its no secret where this leaves the rest of the international community, however, as Western nations will resume the push for UN military intervention while Russia and China will continue to push against it. That much, ceasefire or not, won’t change.
