Dozens of Arab League peace observers from Gulf countries have now left Syria. The Gulf Cooperation Council’s decision was made after Syria rejected an Arab League plan for President Bashar al-Assad to surrender power.

Monitors from Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain have left the country’s capital, Damascus.

The remaining 110 members of the mission will continue to assess Syria’s compliance with an earlier Arab League peace plan. Syria has agreed to extend the mission until February 23rd.

Meanwhile, the Arab League has sent a letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon giving details of the latest plan for a political solution and seeking further UN support.
