Syria Claims It Will Suspend Military Operations Thursday

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) -- Syria says it will halt military operations and government forces will lay down their weapons by early Thursday morning, the deadline for a United Nations-brokered peace deal, according to envoy Kofi Annan.

Reports, however, suggest Syria would still react to attacks by "armed terrorist groups."

The government's year-long crackdown on protesters has killed at least 9,000 people.
