BEIRUT - A Free Syrian Army commander said on Thursday rebels will honor a ceasefire to mark the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha but demanded the release of detainees by Friday.

However, the spokesman of Islamist Ansar al-Islam, Abu Moaz, said his fighters will not commit to the ceasefire brokered by UN-Arab mediator Lakhdar Brahimi. Abu Moaz also said the fighters doubt the government will honor the truce.
