More than 2700 children have been killed by Assad’s forces since 15th of March 2011. Today in Deir Al Assafir in Damascus countryside the shelling of the regime’s airforce added at least 10 more to the list. The video might be graphic, but the world has to see …
This video shows part of the clashes between Free Syrian Army and Assad’s forces in the eastern countryside of Damascus, you can clearly see how they shot down a helicopter at the end of the video ..
This extraordinary video was filmed on the 6th of November 2012, it shows the moment when the missile of the MIG hit the hospital of Al Fateh in Kafr Batna in Damascus. The people you see in the video are Ammar Mun’em, Ammar Al Tasseh, Alaa Al Agwani, Mahmud Naji, were all martyred in the shelling.
These photos were taken by SYRCU member few days ago while delivering some aid to the people in the old town .. it shows some of the destruction that damage the historical buildings and markets ..
At least 126 martyrs were reported today, mostly in Damasus, Aleppo and Deir Ezzor, where shelling killed at least 20 people in the town of al-Quriyah. With the FSA taking over Ras al-Ayn but expecting a regime counter-attack, and anti-regime protesters in Kobani being attacked by the PYD (Kurdish branch of PKK), predominantly Kurdish areas in the North and North-East look increasingly divided and increasingly restless. Meanwhile, 11,000 Syrians reportedly fled the country in the last 24 hours, while aid organisations are mostly failing to help the estimated 2.5 million people currently in need, which the Red Cross predicts will incease to 4 million people in the next few months. The SNC has elected a new leader – George Sabra – but does this even matter anymore? See the map for more info.
At least 123 martyrs were recorded on Thursday, mostly in Damascus and Aleppo, parts of both now resemble other bombed out Syrian cities like Homs and Deir Ezzor. The most serious fighting has begun in a predominantly Kurdish area, with the FSA attacking Assad’s forces in the town of Ras al-Ayn on the Turkish border. Video has emerged suggesting the FSA engaged in the protracted fighting for the town of Haram, Idlib province, have engaged in atocities. Meanwhile the Red Cross admitted it is unable to deal with the growing humanitarian disaster, while local groups say much aid coming from the main donors and large organisations is being stolen or channelled to regime loyalists and is not reaching those most in need. See the map for more info.
168 martyrs were recorded across Syria, including at least 16 children and 4 women. Most people were killed in Damascus, where heavy shelling of the suburb of Beit Sahem killed at least 25. The FSA was shelling Mezzeh 86, a predominantly Alawi neighbourhood of the capital. Airstrikes continue across the country, particularly in Deir Ezzor, Aleppo (including the town of Akhtrain, where many kids were killed), Idlib, Homs and the suburbs of Damascus. See the map for more info.
At least 100 martyrs were reported today, mostly in Damascus (particularly the suburb of Kafar Batna) and Idlib (mostly in the town of Saraqeb). Al-Houla was also under bombing today. Mohammed Laham, brother of Parliament Speaker Jihad Laham, was assassinated by gunmen in the heart of Damascus while Turkey reported that another 7 Syrian generals have defected making at least 42 defected generals now in Turkey. Somebody needs to tell them the fighting is in Syria, at least until Asmaa persuades her husband to accept David Cameron’s offer of asylum in the UK. See the map for more info.
