`Violence in Syria reaches unprecedented levels`
Damascus: United Nations Supervision Mission in Syria (UNSMIS) chief Major General Robert Mood on Thursday said that violence in the country has reached "unprecedented" levels.
Calling for an end to bloodshed in Syria, Robert Mood said that there must be a truce so that his teams could resume their work.
Robert Mood was talking to reporters in the Syrian capital Damascus.
About 300 UN monitors were sent to Syria to provide an unbiased look at the violence, but they have been confined to their hotels since June 15 because of the bloodshed.
