Dr Mazen Hasan, SEO founder, said, "We demand immediate implementation of more UN monitors inside Syria, to closely monitor the fragile presumed ceasefire, which has broken by Assad forces on many occasion. Furthermore, considering the vast geographical area of the country, and the large number of protest points, which exceeded 720 points on Friday April 13th, it became a matter of urgency to deploy more than 3000 UN monitors inside Syria, to better obtain the needed information about Assad regime compliance with the UN peace plan."
