Nineteen-months into the conflict, a rare chance has come for Syria to stop all violence and begin political dialogue to put the unrest-stricken Middle East country back on track.

U.N.-Arab League peace envoy Lakhdar Brahimi has said both the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and most of the opposition groups have agreed to his proposal for a Muslim holiday ceasefire.

If all goes well, the ceasefire will be announced on Thursday, giving a few days of peace to the war-torn country at least during the Islamic holiday Eid al-Adha.

Syria watchers hope the brief truce between Assad's government and various rebel groups will be the first step toward a possible sustainable cessation of all violence in the country.

A clear-cut pledge for peace from both sides in Syria has so far seemed impossible given struggling efforts by former peace envoy Kofi Annan to persuade Assad as well as the oppositions to halt violence immediately.
