BEIRUT - Syria's warring parties held their fire on Friday morning at the start of a four-day truce marking the Muslim holiday of Id al-Adha, a short pause in hostilities which have killed 32,000 people and threaten to draw regional powers into a wider conflict.

President Bashar Assad's armed forces announced a conditional ceasefire on Thursday evening, responding to an appeal by international mediator Lakhdar Brahimi.
