Arab League’s monitors have begun their mission in Syria, BBC reports.

They came to Syria to observe how the authorities keep their promises to withdraw troops from cities and release political protesters.

The monitoring is being implemented under the agreement reached between the opposition and the Syrian government.

The agreement is to end the long lasted standoff, which has led to deaths of more than 5000 people.

According to witnesses, the tanks of the government’s army are now leaving the Syrian flashpoint city of Homs.

Reuter reports that at least 20,000 Syrian citizens went into the streets to greet the monitors.
