The new head of the main exiled opposition group, Syrian National Coalition (SNC), offered Sunday a truce in the Syrian central province of Homs during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, the pan-Arab al-Mayadeen TV said.

While reaching out for a truce, Ahmad Jarba, who was elected as the president of the SNC following a run-off vote held in Istanbul on Saturday, was also cited as expecting that "advanced weapons" are due to reach the armed opposition groups from Saudi Arabia soon.

Jarba, a tribal figure from the eastern Hasaka province, is seen as having close connection with Saudi Arabia. He defeated another strong candidate, businessman Mustafa Sabbagh who is supported by Qatar, another key backer of the armed insurgency in Syria.

However, the opposition's truce calls seem difficult to be put into practice as many rebel groups active on ground don't follow a chain of command due to lack of a central leadership, also as the truce was put forwarded when the Syrian administration of President Bashar al-Assad is currently making sweeping victories in several areas, mainly in Homs.

The Syrian conflict is ongoing between forces loyal to the Syrian government and those seeking to oust it. The conflict began on March 15, 2011 and has killed more than 90,000 people.
