Backing for UN Truce Resolution on Syria

Iran's top military commander said Iran and Syria will be committed to the UN resolution demanding a 30-day ceasefire across Syria but mopping-up operations against "terrorists" holing up in Damascus suburbs would continue.
Chairman of the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Baqeri told Tasnim News Agency on Sunday that "some parts of Damascus suburbs that are under terrorists' control are not included in the ceasefire [regime] and clean-up operations will continue [in those areas]."
The UN Security Council unanimously demanded a 30-day ceasefire across Syria, including the Eastern Ghouta enclave, on Saturday to allow for humanitarian aid deliveries and medical evacuations, but the measure did not specify when the truce would go into force beyond saying it should be "without delay".
