Eid said - happy eid, hopefully even in Syria
Fighter of the Free Syrian Army in Aleppo. (AP) Lakhdar Brahimi, the special envoy for Syria of the UN and the Arab League, succeeded in having Assad agree to a four day cease fire in Syria during the holiday of Eid al-Adha which starts on Thursday evening. The opposition forces also agreed, provided that 'the goverment forces hold their firing first'. Let's hope it will work out well, so that Syria - together with the rest of the muslim world - in a way will have a happy Eid as well.
