The International mediator Lakhdar Brahimi stated that Syrian crisis risked spreading across borders into an “all-consuming” conflict unless it was eventually addressed.
Brahimi, on Wednesday, added that he hoped this month’s Islamic holiday of Eid al-Adha would offer a chance for both sides to cease fire.
He warned that the Middle East would suffer unless the violence in Syria was contained.
“This crisis cannot remain within Syrian borders indefinitely. Either it will be addressed or it will increase … and be all-consuming,” he said.
