Damascus, (SANA)- The activities of Extraordinary Session of the Arab Parties' General Conference kicked off in the Damascus-based Dama Rose Hotel on Monday.
The conference is scheduled to discuss the political scene in Syria in light of the war waged against it by Arab, regional and international forces.
A number of party's representatives from Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Morocco, Yemen, Tunisia and Bahrain are participating in the Conference.
The Conference's chairman, Safwan Qudsi said the conference is convened at an ''intricate political juncture'' that is the result of a major conspiracy intended to fracture the Arab world and restructure it according to the US interests.
The conspiracy started with the wars launched in Iraq, Lebanon and Palestine, Qudsi said, and ''has today resurfaced through adopting a misleading concept: moderate Islam'' that was popularized by the so-called 'Arab Spring.'
Member of the regional leadership of al-Baath Arab Socialist Party, Youssef Ahmad said that meeting of the Arab parties is an opportunity for thrashing out ideas on the Arab causes, crises and concerns.
The tough crisis in Syria notwithstanding, al-Baath Party has not absolved itself, as leader of the stat, of responsibility for wrongs and shortcomings that happened at a particular stage and "created loopholes in the state and society,'' Ahmad pointed out.
The participants saw that some Arab regimes who are speaking about democracy, elections and regime change in other Arab states are ''silencing the voice of the opposition in their own countries and oppressing change.''
They hailed the Syrian army, state and people who stood fast against the aggression, voicing confidence that Syria's victory over the conspiracy is close at hand thanks to the sacrifices of Syrian army.
Syria will outline the features of a new Arab regional system, the participants stressed, affirming that the conspiracy is aimed at destroying the Syrian state, army and infrastructure but ''is doomed to failure.''

An informed source said that the French authorities arrested four men aged between 22 and 35 have been arrested on Tuesday in Paris as part of an operation to dismantle this network.

Investigations revealed that at least two of the other men went to Syria to fight alongside the Al Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra. Three of the arrested individuals were born in France and the fourth was born in Morocco, but their nationalities haven't been specified.
A woman was also arrested briefly and released later.
A source close to the case said that French authorities have information on around 440 people from France who either are currently fighting in Syria, planning to go and fight in it, or had recently returned from it.
The source added that around half of these terrorists are still in Syria, and that around 12 of them have been killed and 2 were arrested in Syria, while around 50 to 60 returned to France.

Jejoen Bontinck remains in cell
After a conversation of half an hour, the Belgian Youth Court decided today to release a seventeen year old Antwerp Syria fighter who last week returned to Belgium. He fought three months actively on the side of Isis, the most violent terrorist movement in Syria, which also sent threatening emails to Belgium.
But fortunately not everyone is immediately released again.
During a closed session this afternoon, the Court decided that the Syrian fighter Jejoen Bontinck stays in prison. Lawyer Kris Luyckx don't wish to comment on the news.
Jejoen Bontinck was detained after his voluntary return from Syria to Belgium. On the day of his return, he was arrested at his mother's home.
The Belgian salafists are lucky that they can come back home while the Syrian population is victim of the ongoing fighting in Syria.
