A rebel fighter runs for cover through sniper fire Wednesday in Aleppo, Syria. The embattled regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad promised Thursday to observe a U.N.-proposed truce during a four-day Muslim holiday, while rebels claimed major gains in the key battleground of Aleppo. But prospects of the cease-fire taking hold today are dim, given Assad's history of broken promises and the rebel momentum in Aleppo, the country's largest city.
