Head of the Arab League's observing delegation to Syria General Mohammed Ahmed Mustafa al-Dabi
The Arab League (AL)'s monitoring mission to Syria says Damascus has been cooperative with the observers who arrived in the country with a regional plan to end months of unrest.
"I am going to Homs. Till now, they have been very cooperative," head of the mission General Mohammed Ahmed Mustafa al-Dabi said on Tuesday.
A group of 50 Arab League observers began its mission in Syria late on Monday after Damascus signed a protocol earlier this month to allow the monitors to investigate the months-long unrest in the country.
The Arab League observers said Syrian authorities have given them access to different locations without restriction.
Syria has been experiencing unrest since mid-March, with demonstrations being held both against and in favor of President Bashar al-Assad.
Hundreds of people, including the members of the security forces, have been killed in the turmoil.
The opposition and rights groups hold the government responsible for the deadly violence. Damascus, however, rejects the allegations and blames armed gangs and foreign infiltrators for the violence.
