The commander of the rebel Free Syrian Army (FSA) announced on Tuesday that his fighters will not join the Geneva II conference in January and will continue their battle to topple President Bashar Al-Assad regardless.

General Salim Idris told Al-Jazeera that: “The conditions are not suitable for running the Geneva II talks on the proposed date and we, as a military and revolutionary force, will not participate in the conference. We will not stop combat at all during the Geneva conference or after it, and what concerns us is getting needed weapons for our fighters.”
