New Tactics

29 January 2012: The Arab League has suspended its monitoring mission in Syria because of an increase in violence, a senior Arab League source in Cairo said earlier today.
The move comes days after President Bashar al-Assad's government agreed to a one-month extension of the mission, which began December 26.
The mission is part of a peace initiative in Syria. The 22-member Arab League has called on al-Assad's regime to stop violence against civilians, free political detainees, remove tanks and weapons from cities and allow outsiders -- including the international news media -- to travel freely in Syria.
The mission has been monitoring government activities in various hotspots. In the last two days, opposition activists reported scores of deaths, with one group, the Local Coordination Committees of Syria, reporting 135 deaths Thursday and Friday.
Violence continued to rage Saturday as an "armed terrorist group" killed seven soldiers in an attack Saturday, state-run media reported.


This move is seen more as a ploy to put pressure on Syria and to respond to criticism of the its ineffectiveness, rather than any significant change in the security situation. While deplorable and spreading, the violence has remained at the same, high level for the past several weeks. End Comment.
