Syria's Assad offers amnesty to rebels who surrender

DAMASCUS (APP) - Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Thursday offered an amnesty to armed rebels battling his forces if they hand themselves in, the official SANA news agency reported.

"Everyone carrying arms... and sought by justice... is excluded from full punishment if they hand themselves in and lay down their weapons," SANA said, quoting a presidential decree on the three-month amnesty offer.
