Arab observers inspect more Syrian hotspots
Published in Bikya Masr on 29 - 12 - 2011

Beirut (dpa) – A team of Arab observers were to inspect more restive areas in southern and northern Syria under an Arab League peace plan on Thursday, a source close to the delegation told dpa.
“The Arab team faced some delays due a logistics problem, but they will soon be in Hama, Daraa and Idlib,” the source said, referring to dissident Syrian provinces.
According to the same source, between 150 and 200 observers will deploy across Syria to interview victims of violence.
The mission's chief, Sudanese General Mustafa al-Dabi, said the mission was still in its early days and needed more time to assess the problems on the ground.
“Give us more time and then criticize our work,” al-Dabi was quoted by Arab media as saying.
Al-Dabi was heavily criticized by the Syrian opposition for saying he had seen “nothing frightening” on his first visit to Homs, at the heart of Syria's 10-month-uprising.
“How can he say such a thing? This is very disappointing,” Sheikh Anas Airout, a member of the Syrian opposition, told dpa from Turkey on Wednesday.
“This regime is playing on everybody. This is a tragedy,” said Airout, who led several mass protests against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad before he fled to Turkey.
Syrian opposition leaders believe that the government crackdown against pro-democracy protesters will not cease, even in the presence of the Arab monitors.
