Azerbaijan, Baku, Nov. 25 / Trend S.Isayev, A. Taghiyeva/
Eighteen people were killed in Syria on Friday by the country's security forces, Al-Jazeera reported.
Thousands of people partake in demonstrations across Syria, demanding from president Bashar al-Assad to step down.
The Arab League suspended Syria on November 12 until al-Assad stops his regime's crackdown on protesters demanding he step down. Over 3,500 people have been killed in the conflict, which appears to be sliding toward a civil war.
A deadline by the Arab League for Syria to accept its plan to end more than eight months of violence expired on Saturday. The plan calls on Syria to withdraw troops from cities and towns, release political prisoners and open dialogue with the opposition.
