CAIRO - Arab League chief Nabil Elaraby urged Damascus on Thursday to immediately end military operations against "defenseless civilians" saying the continued violence was claiming innocent victims.

In an unusually strong statement, Elaraby said he was "concerned over the continued killing and violence in Syria that has claimed more innocent victims."

"(Elaraby) called for an immediate end to all forms of violence and on the Syrian government to... stop military and security escalation against defenseless civilians," the statement issued by his office said.

Elaraby also praised the monitors for working "professionally and seriously" despite what described as very difficult circumstances.
