Syria's government on Thursday offered an amnesty to opposition gunmen without "blood on their hands," urging them to surrender as a UN-backed ceasefire entered into force.

"The interior ministry calls on gunmen whose hands have not been stained with Syrian blood to hand themselves in, along with their weapons, at the nearest police centre. They would be released and all legal procedures against them would be terminated," it said, quoted by state television.
