The mission of international peace envoy to Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, is bound to fail, a rebel Free Syrian Army commander told AFP by telephone on Sunday.
"We are sure Brahimi will fail like the other envoys before him, but we (the rebels) do not want to be the reason of his failure," said Colonel Abdel Jabbar al-Okaidi, after holding a Skype conference call with the envoy and two other rebel commanders.
"We discussed the general situation in Syria, mainly focusing on the destruction wielded by the regime on the country," said FSA commander for Aleppo, Colonel Abdel Jabbar al-Okaidi, reached by telephone.
"The (Skype) meeting was held between Brahimi; (FSA spokesman in Syria) Colonel Qassem Saadeddine; (FSA chief in Damascus) Colonel Khaled Hobous and myself," said Okaidi.
