The Arab League should pull its peace plan monitors out of the country as violence continues against protesters, the 88-member Arab Parliament said Sunday.

“The mission of the Arab League team has missed its aim of stopping the killing of children and ensuring the withdrawal of troops from the Syrian streets, giving the Syrian regime a cover to commit in humane acts under the noses of the Arab League observers,” said Salem al-Deqbasi, the head of the Arab Parliament, according to the Associated Press.

The Arab League’s plan calls for the government to remove security forces and heavy weapons from cities, begin talks with the opposition and allow human rights workers and journalists into the country.

An Arab League representative said in a statement that observers’ field work was going “according to plan,” CNN reported. The League said it alone has the power to withdraw the monitors.
