Despite failed cease-fire, Syrian peace envoy not giving up

Syria govt agrees Eid ceasefire: Brahimi

The death toll in Syria exceeded the 150 mark during the past three days, which means that no cease-fire actually happened, besides a lot of evidence proving that the Assad's regime is the one that started the bombing and killing. Not to mention the bombings in places that are very hard for the Free Syrian Army to reach, as it is completely under the control of the Assad regime.

Despite all what is mentioned in the previous paragraph, the UN-Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi will not stop and will go on with his efforts to present new proposals to the UN in November. He is aiming to push Assad and the Syrian opposition into political talks, diplomats said.

"Brahimi will return with some ideas for action by the Security Council at the beginning of next month, a diplomat said adding that, the political process cannot start until Assad and the opposition are so beaten that, they have no other choice, However, they are not there yet, but Brahimi has some ideas."

Meanwhile, Brahimi is scheduled to visit Russia and China next week, to discuss the situation after the fall of the temporary cease-fire, on the occasion of the Muslim feast of Eid al Adha.

Some sources reported that Brahimi may ask for the return of the UN observer team to Syria, but with more authorities and more members. Sources also confirmed that Brahimi is determined that the solution to the Syrian crisis should be through diplomatic means only.

For his part, Syrian Foreign Ministry spokesman Jihad Al-Maqdissi said that his government was completely committed to a cease-fire, but it is responding to terrorist attacks that violate the cease-fire, the army and armed forces' general leadership said in their statement.

In related news, Syrian local sources stated Sunday that two Hamas leaders were killed by the Syrian army in Deraa refugee camp Saturday. The bodies reportedly lay in the street for several hours before ambulances were able to reach the area.

Furthermore, in a video released on Jihadist websites, al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri said: "I incite Muslims everywhere, especially in the countries that are contiguous to Syria, to rise up to support their brothers (Syrian people and the armed opposition) in Syria, with all what they can and not to spare anything that they can offer," Al Jazeera TV channel reported.

Opinion:

I think that Brahimi is dealing with the Syrian crisis with his country's concept. He is from Algeria, which is still in a relationship with the bloody regime in Damascus. Algeria did not do as most of the Arab countries, whereas they cut their relationship with the regime of Assad.

All routes in addition to Arabic and international plans proved that the only solution to the Syrian crisis is a military solution. That comes after the failure of Kofi Annan and before him the Arab League to solve the Syrian crisis diplomatically or politically.

I do not know what plan Brahimi will invent to resolve the Syrian crisis. I believe that all possible solutions have been tried and failed. However, whenever they plan for peace and calm, the death toll and crimes of the offending regime rises as if he defies the world, including America.

We have to wait for days to know what Brahimi is planning. The Syrian people should also wait with us, but they have to equip the graves for more victims of innocent people, whom the world, including Brahimi, will be involved in the crime of murdering them in those coming days.
