Aidilfitri is a time of celebration for most Muslims around the world, as it marks the end of a month-long fast.
The end of Ramadhan however, brought a different sort of reprieve for Syrians, as it allowed them to pick up the pieces of the life they once knew.
Aleppo had been hammered by nearly two months of shelling, but Aidilfitri seemed to have brought about an undeclared ceasefire.
While it remains unclear how long the cease fire might last, residents of Aleppo took the opportunity to search for the dead and to retrieve some of their belongings from their destroyed homes.
Others took it upon themselves to sweep the streets, littered with shrapnel and debris from weeks of fighting.
Meanwhile, Syrian refugees in Iraq marked the end of Ramadan in a similarly forlorn mood.
According to the UN refugee agency, more than 170,000 Syrian refugees have been registered in the neighbouring countries of Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey.
Humanitarian conditions in Syria have deteriorated as fighting worsens, with the 17 month conflict already killing more than 18 thousand people.
