Former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan said today that the Assad regime has accepted his 6-point peace plan . . . the plan includes a cease-fire, a daily 2-hour halt to fighting to allow the evacuation of wounded, and peace talks between the government and the opposition . . . Russia and China endorsed Annan’s plan over the last few days . . . fighting continues in Syria, with casualties reported today in Idlid and Homs . . . Syrian forces today reportedly pursued rebels several hundred meters into Lebanese territory and destroyed farm buildings, according to Reuters . . . Annan has admitted that implementing his peace plan will be very difficult because opposition groups are fragmented and are refusing to participate . . . Annan’s plan does not call for President Assad to step down, which probably will prevent opposition groups from agreeing to it.
