DARAA, (SANA)_Maj. Gen. Robert Mood, Head of the UN observer mission in Syria, said that an explosive device went off as the UN observer mission team passed by, injuring one of the guards and a journalist.
In a press conference in Daraa on Wednesday, Mood said "The explosion is an indication that reflects the violence in Syria.''
Gen. Mood considered that Syria's exit from the crisis has to be decided by the Syrians themselves, adding that all parties in Syria have to communicate for solving the crisis.
''We met the UN observers in Daraa who said they are welcomed by all, ''said Mood, adding that there are 70 observers in Syria to reach 100 in the next couple of days, vowing to convey the situation on the ground as it is.
On the report submitted by the UN envoy to Syria, Kofi Annan, to the UN Security Council, Mood said "We cannot comment since it was we who submitted the report based on our on-the-ground observations..I believe that the international community had a balanced view on the report."
