No response to Ramadan truce call in Syria

Government refused opposition's ceasefire offer in Homs and rebels haven't laid down weapons either.  

    The Syrian opposition has called for a ceasefire in the city of Homs during Ramadan. But that appears to be falling on deaf ears.

    Government forces have refused the truce offer and rebels haven't laid down their weapons either.
