Ceasefires extended in besieged Syrian towns - Hezbollah's TV station

Warring parties have agreed to extend ceasefires in two Shi'ite Muslim towns in northwestern Syria and another settlement near the Lebanese border until a deal is reached, the al-Manar TV station controlled by Lebanon's Hezbollah said on Tuesday.

Pro-government militia supported by the Lebanese group Hezbollah have been defending the two towns - al-Foua and Kefraya - against insurgent attacks. The Syrian army and Hezbollah are trying to capture the other border town, Zabadani, from rebels.
