At least 161 martyrs have fallen today, mostly in Damascus and Aleppo. In the capital several dozen people were executed during large scale raids on Barzeh, Jobar, Qaboun and the suburb of Qudsaya. In Aleppo the fighting has intensified with the FSA making some gains in certain areas, including Sheikh Maqsoud district where they were fighting armed men from the PYD (Syrian branch of the Kurdish Workers Party). These have also been bloody days in Deir Ezzor. Although the FSA controls most of the countryside, Assad’s forces are still in the city, and in the last 2 days have carried out 2 massacres in the neighbourhoods of Joura and Qusour. Meanwhile, more than 300,000 Syrians are now registered refugees in neighbouring countries. See the map for more info.
