Syria: Lebanese Ceasefire

“Fateh Al Islam has accepted a government offer of a ceasefire.
They say they will stop attacks if the army does not attack them. The army has responded by saying they never fire first.
Humanitarian organisations say it's vital to have a break in fighting to get food and water to the 40,000 (Palestinian) refugees trapped inside the camp.
Residents say there are dead bodies all over the streets, and wounded people are also lying on the roads, unable to get help. No-one can leave the camp because the soldiers have blocked the entrances,” writes Syrian blogger Sasa.
