The National carried the testimony of a former Emirati Arab League observer. He said he was well received by both sides, but regrets that the rebels did not wish to continue collaborating with the observers. The article, which depicts the mission in positive terms was published before the Emirates announced their withdrawal from the mechanism along with the other States of the Gulf Cooperation Council.

Al-Asharq Al-Awsat (Saudi Arabia) gives the floor to the leader of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood, Mohammed Riad al-Sakfa, who is confident in the coming victory. He professes the Salafist character of the "Syrian revolution," claims that all the rebels need are defensive weapons, and assures that the Assad regime will fall once it is completely isolated (hence the need to close embassies as has just been done by the U.S. under a safety pretext).
