The rebel Free Syrian Army says it has stopped its offensive against government targets during a month-long mission by Arab League monitors.
The leader of the FSA is breakaway air force Col. Riad al-Asaad. He told The Associated Press on Friday that the group has halted attacks since the observers arrived this week.
The government insists terrorists and gangs are driving the nine month crisis in Syria.
The Free Syrian Army says it is made up of 15,000 army defectors who abandoned the regime during the uprising.
The group has claimed responsibility for attacks on government installations that have killed scores of soldiers and members of the security forces.
