Summary (24/08/2012):

At least 170 martyrs were killed today including at least 25 kids. 40 were killed in the bombing of Mayadin in Deir Ezzor and there were more massacres in Dael and Herak in Daraa, and in Duma, Damascus. In the Damascus suburb of Daraya, killing some of the martyrs once wasn’t enough for Assad’s forces, they also had to shell their bodies. Heavy fighting continues in Aleppo and only Tartous, Raqqah and Suwayda are being spared the shelling and bombing. These are very difficult days for Syrians, even those who are not directly under fire. The lack of basic needs like water, food and fuel is severe in many areas, while hundreds of thousands have been displaced, and more than 200,000 Syrians are now registered refugees in neighbouring countries. Meanwhile, like every day for more than 17 months, protests have taken place across the country. See the map for more info.
