DUBAI - Iran said attacks will continue on Damascus suburbs held by "terrorists," but elsewhere Iran and Syria will respect a UN resolution demanding a 30-day truce to allow aid access and medical evacuation, the Iranian military chief of staff was quoted as saying on Sunday.

"We will adhere to the ceasefire resolution, Syria will also adhere. Parts of the suburbs of Damascus, which are held by the terrorists, are not covered by the ceasefire and clean-up (operations) will continue there," the semi-official news agency Tasnim quoted General Mohammad Baqeri as saying.
