DAMASCUS, April 30 (Xinhua) -- Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Saturday issued a general amnesty pardoning the crimes committed before April 30, state news agency SANA reported.

The pardon covers terror-related crimes that didn't cause any deaths, SANA reported, citing a copy of the presidential decree.

Assad has issued several pardons during the nearly 11-year civil war in Syria, aiming to allow the Syrians who broke certain laws to return to normal life. This one comes a day before the Muslim feast of Eid al-Fitr.
