Arab League says Syria monitoring will continue
Cairo: Arab peace monitors will continue their work in Syria, the deputy head of the regional body said on Tuesday, after Gulf Arab states decided to pull their monitors out of the country.
"The mission will continue its task now because the protocol was temporarily extended till January 24," Ahmed Ben Helli told reporters in Cairo.
He said the Arab League, which resolved on Sunday to prolong the mission, was waiting for Syria`s government to accept the extension. There were now 110 Arab monitors left in Syria after 55 Gulf Arab monitors withdrew, Ben Helli said.
