Summary (26/09/2012)

A very bloody day today to compensate for the previous few days. While the media was focussed on the attack on the Ministry of Defence building in central Damascus at least 298 people were killed by Assad’s forces across the country. At least 5 massacres took place, the bloodiest was in the Damascus suburb of Zyabiyah where more than 107 bodies were found. Other massacres took place in the Damascus neighbourhod of Barzeh, Ibtaa in Daraa province, al-Bayadah in Homs and in Deir Ezzor, where a combination of bombing and executions killed more than 30. One of the airstrikes destroyed the city’s public records office. Meanwhile, 280 residents of Rableh (on the Syrian-Lebanese border) who were taken prisoner by rebels on Monday have been released. They were detained in response to the regime’s arming of the villagers. See the map for more info.
