Arab League monitors made “mistakes” during their fact-finding mission in Syria, Qatar’s foreign minister said on Thursday.
Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim al-Thani told reporters that the league is seeking technical assistance from the United Nations for its mission, lambasted by many critics for failing to halt violence.
He didn’t elaborate on the errors, but he stressed that the mission was of an “observatory nature, not to intervene in stopping the violence.”
