The head of the UN Supervision Mission in Syria (UNSMIS) says there appears to be a "lack of willingness" on the two sides to seek a peaceful transition.

The Norwegian said there was a "push towards advancing military positions".

Activists have said troops are shelling opposition-held areas and fighting rebels in several parts of the country.
