After days of arguing, Syrian opposition groups in Doha have signed an agreement to form a coalition against President Bashar al-Assad’s regime, Reuters reports.
“An initial deal has been signed. The evening session will be for electing the president of the body and his deputy,” Ali Sadreddine al-Bayanouni, a Muslim Brotherhood delegate, told reporters…
(The group) will seek to obtain international recognition as the legitimate representative of the Syrian people and form a ten-member government-in-waiting, SNC member Wael Merza told Reuters.
The new group, called the Syrian National Coalition for Opposition and Revolutionary Forces, will consist of a 60-member assembly and military and judicial councils.
The news comes after other media reports that a deal between the various opposition factions had fallen through late Saturday night.
Meanwhile, at least 101 people were killed across Syria yesterday, including 34 civilians, Al Jazeera English reports.
