The Syrian Revolution General Commission said Monday (December 5th) that 32 civilians were killed Sunday in clashes with government forces.
"Twenty-six people, including three children and their mother, were killed in Homs when security forces opened fire on demonstrators, while four were killed in Idlib, one in Rif Ham and one in Daraa," the commission said in a statement aired on al-Arabiya satellite channel.
Syrian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Jihad Maqdisi told reporters on Monday that the government exchanged messages with the Arab League.
"This may lead to an agreement that would preserve Damascus' sovereignty and independence, and at the same time allow the entry of Arab League observers to follow up on conditions in the country," Maqdisi said, according to Syria's official news agency SANA.
"If there are good intentions, the road will be open for signing the agreement as soon as possible," he said.
Head of the Arab League Nabil al-Arabi said he received a letter from Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem Sunday night that contained "new demands", AFP reported. He said Arab foreign ministers were apprised of the letter and consultations were underway.
