Azerbaijan, Baku, November 4 / Trend, A. Tagiyeva /
In Syria, security forces killed 12 people during Friday demonstrations today, Al-Jazeera reported.
The Friday demonstrations in Syria, attended by more than 1,000 demonstrators, are conducted under the motto of Allah the Great. The protesters demand for the regime's resignation and express their displeasure with the provisions of the Arab League's plan of settlement of the Syrian crisis.
Qatar Foreign Minister Hamad ben Jasem Al Tani reported on Thursday that Syria has agreed with the League's plan that envisions stoppage of violence by all sides of the conflict for the reasons of avoidance of new victims amongst Syrian civilians. Besides, Damascus has been obliged to release all those who were jailed as a result of the latest events.
In addition, the whole military hardware should be removed from Syria's settlements. Under the plan, Damascus will also have to let employees of League's different divisions and Arab and world media enter the country's territory and ensure their free movement there.
If the Government of Syria fulfills the commitments contained in the Arab plan the Arab Commission involved in the issue of settlement in Syria within two weeks will establish contacts with the Syrian opposition to arrange a national dialogue conference.
Syria has been experiencing continuous anti-government protests for almost seven months. According to UN statistics, the number of clash victims exceeded 3,000 people. Syrian authorities say more than 1,500 people died on both sides.
