The group also intends to increase the number of observers and they'll receive training by the UN. The mission expired this week, but violence is still flaring up in the country. In one of the latest outbreaks, 14 people were killed when a police car, transporting prisoners, was ambushed in the north-west. And RT's Sara Firth's been to the town of Zabadani, which has seen some of the fiercest battles between security forces and armed opposition groups.
