Summary (21/09/2012)

At least 111 martyrs today, mostly in Damascus where there was a new massacre in Buwaida district. As usual there were hundreds of protests, and as usual many places were under shelling. The bombing of Aleppo, Homs, Deir Ezzor and Jabal az-Zawiyah is particularly relentless. Today Assad said again that he will crush the opposition, yet at the same time he told an Egyptian newspaper that dialogue is the only solution. To show how much he really believes in dialogue, yesterday his forces arrested several leading members of the NCB, one of the few genuine opposition groups who are willing to talk to him. Not even the support of Russia and China could protect them. Meanwhile, the day after being accused of complicity with regular flights of arms from Iran, the Iraqis have intercepted a plane suspected of carrying arms to Assad from North Korea. How convenient. See the map for more info.
