Damascus - Syria's army said Thursday it would halt all military operations from midnight after Russia announced rebels and the regime had signed a ceasefire agreement.

"The general command of the armed forces announces a complete halt to all hostilities on Syrian territory from the zero hour of December 30th," it said in a statement.

It added that the halt excluded combat against the Islamic State group and the former Al-Qaeda affiliate previously known as Al-Nusra Front.
