Mohammad al-Hamwi, a spokesman for the Australian Syrian Association, has just been speaking with Al Jazeera.
He says that the Arab League observers have abandoned their mission and are not following their own protocols.

First the strategy or the agreement [was] supposed to be 500 observers to go there to check around Syria, what is going on with the [badly] hit areas. What happened is they agreed only after negotiations for two months of more killings, after the announcement from the Arab League, to go with the agreement to check inside all cities. [...]
"All the media in Syria it was all lies. They ... created false alarms. Like they say there are ... armed terrorist groups. [...]
"[There is] no evidence to show [the government] is really honest or they are willing to co-operate with the Arab League. It's all lies, just they want to gain time. They are increasing killings daily. So the average before was 30 people died daily, those martyrs. Now it becomes average 50 [people dying daily]."

The Australian Syrian Association is calling on the United Nations to get involved in the crisis in order to stop the violence, he said.

[The] Arab League have no solution for it, just to tell the world that they are doing something. We request the United Nations or national council [that] they can use Section 7 to intervene in Syria without any resolution or veto from Russia or China. Stop killing.

"Six months ago, [US Secretary of State] Hillary Clinton, [French President Nicolas] Sarkozy, [Turkish PM Recep Tayyip] Erdogan, all the Western leaders they named the regime as 'illegitimate' [for] killing his own people."
