Opposition fighters in Syria left the doubt about any possible truce to stop the bloodshed after the 19-month of a civil war.
Last Sunday, the International mediator, Lakhdar Brahimi maintained negotiations in Damascus with the Syrian president Bashar al-Assad to propose the army and the opposition fighters to maintain a cease fire for the three day holiday, Eid al-Adha, which begins Friday 26 of October.
This calling received the support of international powers like Iran, Turkey and Russia. Meanwhile the deputy secretary general of the Arab League, Ahmed Ben Helli, said yesterday that the chances for a truce are very ‘slim’.
After his meeting with the Syrian president, Brahimi said that his idea won support but suggested it was up to individual groups to decide how to implement it. AV
