The head of Arab League monitor delegation who is visiting Syria in order to investigate if the regime is keeping its promise to implement a plan to end the crisis said on Wednesday the situation in the “Resistance Capital” of Homs was “reassuring so far.”
“The situation seemed reassuring so far,” Sudanese General Mustafa Dabi told Reuters. “Yesterday was quiet and there were no clashes. We did not see tanks but we did see some armored vehicles. But remember this was only the first day and it will need investigation. We have 20 people who will be there for a long time.”
