Syrian opposition rejects foreign military intervention in the country

Istanbul - The Syrian opposition agreed during a meeting in Turkey to support popular protests against President Bashar Assad rejected foreign military intervention and ruled out forming a transitional council similar to the Libyan insurgents, said Thursday one of the participants. For three days, members of the main Syrian opposition groups discussed in the Turkish city of Antalya, the principles of the fight against al-Assad.

Turkish analysts say, the meeting, involving about 300 opponents, is the most important of its kind so far. One participant in the meetings, which requested anonymity, described the main lines agreed by the opposition. Among them is also a refusal to arm the marchers. Many participants in the Antalya meeting also decided not to return to Syria, for fear of reprisals.

Protests against the Assad regime in Syria pulled out in mid-March and were suppressed by force by security forces. Human rights groups say so far killed more than 1,000 people. On Tuesday, Al Assad announced a general amnesty for political prisoners, a move that on Wednesday rejected the opposition, which believes that it is a trick that is in contradiction with what happens in the streets.

According to activist circles, from Wednesday were freed many political prisoners.
