By  |  0 Comments

SYRIAN CONFLICT. Hopes for a cease-fire in Syria this week is diminishing, despite reports of an earlier promise by the Syrian government to withdraw its forces from cities by Tuesday. Mounting deaths, a fresh demand by the Syrian regime and a scathing report of summary executions carried out by government forces suggest the crisis is far from over, CNN reports.
