Cease-fire takes effect in war-ravaged Syria
BEIRUT - Syrian opposition activists say a nationwide cease-fire is still holding, despite minor violations.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says there've been minor clashes today between troops and rebels in the central province of Hama and near the capital, Damascus.
Despite the cease-fire brokered by Russia and Turkey, airstrikes are still being carried out on the Islamic State group, which is excluded from the truce.
