Syrian President Bashar al Assad granted amnesty and reduced sentences for all crimes committed before Sunday, while also offering amnesty to military deserters who turn themselves in within the next few months.
The decree expanded the range of amnesty for some crimes that were not covered in previous decrees.
Similar amnesties have been issued on several occasions, most recently in September of last year.
