ALEPPO: Fighting and government shelling erupted east of Damascus overnight on Tuesday despite a temporary truce announced by the Syrian army in that area, a war monitor said.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also said five people were killed in heavy rebel shelling of government-held areas of Aleppo, which was not included in a temporary truce announced by the Syrian government last week. An air strike south of Aleppo meanwhile killed at least three people, the Observatory said.
