Syria's state-run TV has aired footage of the Syrian president performing Eid prayers in a mosque in Damascus.
It is the first appearance in public by Bashar Assad after a July 18 bombing in Damascus killed the country's defence minister and three other top security officials, including the president's brother-in-law.
Assad prayed at the Hamad Mosque in Damascus at the start of Eid al-Fitr, a three-day holiday marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
The last time he appeared in public was on July 4 when when he gave a speech in parliament.
An air strike by a Syrian plane in the northern rebel-held town of Azaz killed 30 people and wounded scores of others, a local doctor said.
The UN Special Envoy to Syria Kofi Annan has admitted he is "frustrated and impatient" over the continued violence and killing in Syria.
So after weeks of insisting his peace mission is the only game in town, it might be that Kofi Annan is preparing to pack up and leave.
