US: Sides must honor ceasefire

The United States on Saturday welcomed a 48-hour ceasefire in southern Syria, calling on the Syrian government to honor its commitments,

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said in a statement, "We will judge this initiative by the results, not the words. The opposition should similarly halt attacks to allow the ceasefire to endure and hopefully be extended, and to allow humanitarian aid to reach those in need."
