GENEVA/SYRIAN PROVNICES, (SANA)- A delegation of the international observers mandated to monitor the ceasefire in Syria as part of the six-point peace plan sponsored by UN envoy Kofi Annan on Friday visited the old neighborhoods of Homs province and al-Matahen (mills) area.
Another delegation visited the city of Aleppo and met the Governor, while a third team visited Idleb and met its Governor and locals, with Governor Yasser al-Shoufi affirming that all facilitations will be provided to ensure the success of the observers' mission.
In turn, head of the observers team Ahmad Hmesih said that the visit to Idleb is part of the efforts to coordinate and pave the way for other observers, as it was agreed that two observers will operate in the city as of Friday.
After its visit to Idleb, the team went to the city of Hama and met some of the locals, while another team visited the city of Daraa.
Meanwhile, Annan's spokesman, Ahmad Fawzi, said that 15 additional international observers are expected to be deployed in Syria by next Monday.
"We expect the 30 observers to be on the ground by the end of next Monday," Fawzi was cited by Reuters as saying in Geneva.
He added that efforts are underway for full deployment of the 300-observer mission.
