Syrian rebels kill 28 soldiers as fighting rages

(Continued)

On Thursday, China called for a phased-in cease-fire and negotiations on a gradual political transition to end the bloodshed.

The four-point proposal issued by the Foreign Ministry stopped short of calling for Assad's ouster and omitted mention of any measures to compel compliance. Alongside Russia, China has steadfastly blocked any outside intervention that could force Assad from power.

The proposal called on the international community to support the work of the U.N.-Arab League envoy to Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, who pushed for the failed cease-fire.
