Main Syrian rebel brigades have announced their opposition to an international peace conference on Syria if it does not result in President Bashar Assad's removal, piling pressure on the political opposition not to attend. "Any solution will be totally rejected if it does not end Assad's rule with all of its military and security pillars and if it does not hold accountable all those who took part in the state terrorism," said the statement, dated Saturday and signed by some of the most formidable Islamist units fighting Assad.
