    As Arab League officials await a formal response from the government of Bashar al-Assad, Syrian State TV has announced a deal between Damascus and the Arab League.

    Among the points in the plan is an immediate end to the violence, -which means Syrian troops should be taken off the streets.

    Though Damascus had warned against a NATO-led foreign intervention, the announcement seems to signal that the Assad government is willing to accept the terms of an Arab League brokered deal to end the months-long turmoil that began in March.
