The new Syrian opposition coalition has received a qualified and cautious welcome from the Arab League.

Some leaders are reluctant to definitively abandon Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Consequently, Arab League foreign ministers, meeting in Cairo, hesitated to proclaim the Syrian National Coalition as the country’s sole legitimate voice. The Prime Minister of Qatar called on all the other opposition factions in Syria to join the coalition to unite all sections of the Syrian people.

Meanwhile, there are more signs of the conflict spreading beyond Syria’s borders. The Israeli military has fired on Syrian artillery in response to an earlier mortar strike into the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
