The Syrian army has heavily shelled several areas of the country despite a ceasefire marking the Muslim festival of Eid al-Adha, according to activists.
Shelling and shooting were reported in the capital, Damascus, in the eastern city of Deir Ezzor and in rebel-held areas of northern Aleppo province.
The UN-brokered ceasefire came into force on Friday but was soon shattered by fighting and car bomb in Damascus.
