The four-day ceasefire proposed by UN-Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi already collapsed amid clashes, shelling and car bomb attacks hours after it had been due to take effect with the start of Eid al-Adha holidays on Friday morning.
An army statement on Sunday blamed the ceasefire's collapse on 'violations' by rebels. The rebels for their part have said they have only reacted to regime attacks.
With hopes shattered of even a temporary halt to the 19 months of bloodshed in Syria, diplomats said Brahimi is looking ahead to new efforts to tackle the crisis.
