Syria's army command said on Friday it had responded to several attacks by rebel forces on military positions across the country, which it said violated a ceasefire marking the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha.

It said it had responded to the rebel attacks in accordance with its announcement on Thursday that it would cease military activity during the four-day holiday but reserve the right to react to rebel action.
