Assad’s forces are currently engaged in attacks across at least 8 provinces (including all the most populated ones) – Daraa, Damascus, Deir Ezzor, Homs, Hama, Idlib, Aleppo and Lattakia – using tanks, artillery and helicopters. In many areas crops are being torched. Tonight heavy gunfire is reported in many places including Damascus and Hama. In Aleppo several dozen explosions were heard coming from the direction of the artillery school, possibly the sound of heavy artillery being fired. Meanwhile, the regime has responded to the expulsion of Syrian diplomats last week by barring diplomats from 17 countries, they also said aid agencies would be allowed into Homs, Idlib, Daraa and Deir Ezzor. Of course they will, once Assad’s forces have finished destroying them and driving out all the people. See the map for more info.
