says the message urges the rebels to surrender their weapons and is signed by the Syrian Arab Army. It also says that the countdown to evict "foreign fighters" is underway.
The Free Syrian Army says they began receiving the messages today, just one day after they bombed
a military command centre in Damascus. At least four soldiers were killed in the high profile attack and resulted in military checkpoints set up across the capital.
Last month, the rebel fighters received another message from the military when army helicopters dropped leaflets telling the rebels to surrender their weapons and seek amnesty.
