SUMMARY (06/08/2012): At least 155 martyrs have been killed today, mostly in the heavy shelling of Aleppo, Idlib, Deir Ezzor and Damascus where the regime’s shelling also killed 3 of the 48 Iranians captured by the FSA. A new massacre is being reported in Harabnafseh in Hama province, close to Houla. Meanwhile, the defection of Riad Hijab, Prime Minister for less than 2 months, was announced. Gradually the defections are stripping the regime of its pretense of still being a functioning government, exposing the gang of criminals at the core. See the map for more info.
