    Arab League observers have been on a mission since Monday to assess whether Syria has halted its nine-month crackdown on protests against President Bashar al-Assad.

    But a group that advises the Arab League says the monitors, some with a controversial history, are inadvertently helping the Syrian government cover its continued violent actions.

    Ashraf al-Moqdad, an opposition activist of the Damascus Declaration, spoke to Al Jazeera from Egypt on why he believes the Arab mission has failed in Syria.
