The Arab League’s observers will continue their mission in Syria, the organization said a statement Sunday.

The Arab League has been observing the implementation of an agreement by the Syrian government to halt military operations against peaceful protesters.

Arab League leader Nabil el-Arabi said he expects to receive a full report from monitors on Jan 19.

“On the lights of the report to be presented on Jan 19, a decision will be made, after the committee meets, followed by a ministerial meeting,” Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad Bin Jasim Bin Jaber al Thani said in a press conference in Cairo.

The Arab League once again called on the Syrian government and armed groups to cease violence against civilians.

“The Syrian government is urged to immediately and fully abide by its vows to execute the approved protocol in a way that would guarantee security to Syrian civilians and does not obstruct peaceful protests, in order for the delegation’s mission to succeed,” the organization said.

Syrian anti-government fighters killed 11 members of President Bashar al-Assad’s security forces in clashes in Daraa, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Sunday. Syrian forces killed 32 people, Al Jazeera television reported, citing activists.
