The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reports that although the truce has been strictly complied with  across almost all the country, several clashes took place in Hama province.

The SOHR’s head Abdel Rahman said small rebel groups and armed gunmen were trying to undermine the ceasefire.

The Syrian Government and 7 rebel groups have agreed to a nationwide truce followed by peace talks aimed at ending the six-year conflict.
