Syria's military says it will adhere to a four-day ceasefire to begin today for the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha.

The truce was proposed by UN and Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi, who hopes it will lead to a peace process.

The news came as rebels said they had advanced into several central areas in Aleppo, Syria's largest city and a key battleground in recent months.
