SYRIA: Arab League Suspends Observer Mission for Revealing Media Disinformation

In-depth Report:

Damascus, Jan 30 (Prensa Latina) The Syrian Human Rights Network (SHRN) criticized the Arab League (AL) for suspending the mission of observers, only because it showed objectivity and neutrality.

In a statement published on local media on Monday, the SHRN urged to take into account the reports on human rights and that from the observers at any roundtable discussion on the Syrian case.

It stated that the main guarantee to find a solution to the crisis must come from within Syria.

After the AL Ministerial Council agreed to extend the mission of observers in Syria, and the head of its Operations Office on Friday even denounced that 30 observers will travel to Damascus this week to reinforce it, the general secretary of that regional organization unexpectedly announced on January 28 the cancellation of the mission.

Immediately, the Syrian government warned that Nabil El-Arabi’s decision is in tune with the boycott carried out by oil monarchies of the Persian Gulf, led by Qatar and Saudi Arabia, to create an atmosphere unfavorable to Syria in the roundtable discussions taking place at the UN Security Council.

The SHRN also condemned the attacks on Syrian delegations in Cairo, as well as the vandalistic action against the Syrian Embassy in Egypt by individuals linked to the so-called Council of Istanbul, which proves its relation with the terrorists.

The non-governmental organization urged opposition groups abroad to stop talking on behalf of the Syrian people, because they are not their legitimate representatives.
