Syria Allows in Arab League Observers

Monday, December 19, 2011

Syria has announced it will allow 100 observers into the country, after a long political battle with the Arab League. But as director of University of Oklahoma's Center for Middle East Studies Joshua Landis notes, the situation those observers will enter is explosive. The Syrian Free Army and security forces of President Bashar al-Assad seem at the verge of all-out war, and tensions within the country are higher than ever.
