Summary (31/08/2012)

At least 95 martyrs have fallen today, mostly in the Damascus area including many who were executed. Areas in the south and east of the capital (Hajar Aswad, Jobar and Yarmuk Camp) were all under shelling, while the Old town in Homs had a bloody day of shelling and 10 were killed in an airstrike on al-Bab near Aleppo. Another helicopter was shot down in Idlib while the FSA announced a new offensive in Aleppo, contradicting the regime’s claims that they were being defeated. The FSA also announced it took over an Air Defence Battalion base in al-Bukamal on the Iraqi border. Syrians protested across the country, wherever it was possible to gather. Finally, August was the bloodiest month so far, with more than 6,000 recorded martyrs.
