Backlash to Bloodshed!
Crackdown paves way for more consolidation of the protest movement.

Official death toll for Friday, April 22 is 112: Homs & Suburbs (27), Damascus & Suburbs (47), Deraa & Suburbs (32), Hama City (5), Lattakia (1). Today 12 more were killed, 5 in Deraa’s Izraa, rest in Damascus & Suburbs. Moreover, two new members in the People’s Assembly representing Deraa have resigned, so did the Mufti of Deraa.

Assad security forces killed eight more people today, perhaps by way of underscoring the “official” and “intentional” character of the Good Friday Massacres that left 112 civilians dead. While international reactions remain subdued and have been restricted to mere condemnations of the escalating violence on part of the Assads with no mention of any potential international repercussions or consequences, and as the Arab World watches on silently, the protesters continue to get more organized.

Yesterday, and before the Assads unleashed their fury on the unarmed protesters a statement was released signed by the various local committees running the protests movements all over the country. The detailed list of demands included comes as an accurate reflection of the online conversations we’ve been having with in-country activists for the past weeks.

Most activists would now push for the inclusion of a clear call for the immediate resignation of Bashar Al-Assad. The next logical step will be to announce the formation of a committee that can officially speak for the revolution. It is also important to see future protests raising banners and slogans endorsing the demands made by the committees.

Meanwhile, the challenge for Syrian security today was to manage the funerals in a manner that will prevent holding mass funerals. In this, they relied on the usual tactics of hiding corpses and laying siege to known hotspots and flashpoints. While, the strategy seemed to work by minimizing the number of protesters in the streets, the flipside, especially with more protesters getting killed today, is that there will be funerals for everyday of the weeks now paving the way to next Friday.

In Deraa City, security forces looted electronic and jewelry stores, behaving very much like an occupation force, thus cementing the way they are being viewed by the local residents. Tyrants as occupiers is an old theme, but one that is playing out all too visibly throughout the streets of Syria today.

Bloodshed & Watershed!

Will the tragic bloodshed that took place in Syria on Good Friday usher in a watershed moment in the international community’s handling of the situation? This is what many Syrians hope for in order to prevent further escalation of violence on parts of the authorities.
With death toll of over 100 in the span of few hours, this was by far the bloodiest day in the Syrian Revolution, so far. The story gets more tragic when we take under consideration that we are not talking about a violent conflict here in which both sides are heavily armed, but one that pits unarmed civilians chanting for freedom against thugs armed with electric batons and Kalashnikovs and snipers with orders to shoot to kill. As the world watched, Good Friday in Syria turned into an open season on protesters dreaming of freedom. But if the Assads were hoping that this will serve to intimidate the protesters or help contain their movement, they don’t have long to wait before they learn how wrong they are. For the thirst for freedom is no less irrational than that for blood.

While protests broke out in almost every major city, town and suburb in Syria, violence, for the most part, was restricted to certain Damascene suburbs and neighborhoods as well as Deraa and Homs. But while in Deraa the intention seems to have been to punish the people who started it all, in Homs and Damascus, the thinking was to prevent, by any means necessary, an attempt at marching towards and occupying the main squares.

Still, today, and for the first time since the beginning of the Syrian Revolution, Damascus itself witnessed major protests (3,000-4,000 participants) that took place in some of its more traditional neighborhoods, Al-Midan and Al-Qadam, in a development that might have wider repercussions over the next few days.

The main demand of protesters everywhere has become regime change. It will be foolish to believe that after today’s bloodbath, protesters would settle for any scenario that will keep Bashar in power. Whether he is losing control of his security apparatuses, as some still claim, or not, ultimately, he is the one responsible, and he is deeply and widely believed by the protesters on the basis of his performance during this crisis to be part of the problem, if not its very embodiment.

Three items in particular deserve to be highlighted today: 1) the use of tanks to besiege the suburbs of Mouaddamiyyah and Darayyah near Damascus, 2) the prevalence of elderly security officers in the streets, which denote that the Assads are relying heavily on the reserves, perhaps as a reflection of their inability to trust all available army units in this crackdown, and 3) the use of explosive bullets to kill as evident in the type of wounds made.

الجمعة العظيمة.. الشاهد الأخير

لم تختلف الجمعة العظيمة كما أطلق عليها منظمو التظاهرات في سورية عن سابقتها كثيراً فهي شاهد جديد على عنف النظام وقمعه القسري لمطالبات الإصلاح، فمنذ مساء يوم الخميس لوحظ انتشار واسع لقوات الأمن ومركباتهم في شتى المدن السورية واستمر ذلك صباح يوم الجمعة

مظاهرات حاشدة
بدأت المظاهرات عقب صلاة الجمعة في مختلف المدن والمناطق السورية من الشمال إلى الجنوب ومن الشرق إلى الغرب بلا استثناء، ولكن ما ميز هذه التحركات هو مقدرتها للمرة الأولى من التمركز الكبير في العاصمة دمشق وفي الأحياء الرئيسية فيها كحي الميدان، ولم تغب المظاهرات التي خرجت بأعداد حاشدة عن أي من المدن السورية

تقدر حصيلة القتلى للجمعة العظيمة الذين سقطوا برصاص قوات الأمن بأكثر من مائة شهيد من مختلف المناطق، وإن كان الغالبية منهم قد سقط في درعا ودمشق وحمص، ومع ذلك لم تسلم أي من المظاهرات من حالات قتل أو وقوع جرحى مابين إصابات خطيرة ومتوسطة واعتقال أعداد كبيرة لم يتم التمكن من تقديرها

كما لوحظ خطف قوات الأمن لجثث القتلى وذلك حتى لا تعرف هوياتهم، كما واستخدمت السلطات الغازات المسلية للدموع ضد المتظاهرين العزل، ورُصد استخدام أسلحة محرمة لم يتم التعرف عليها، ولكنها ظهرت من خلال التشويه البالغ الذي تحدثه في جثث القتلى، وقد نشرت صورة لشهيد وقد خلع فكه إثر رصاصة أطلقت عليه من قبل سلطات الأمن، كما ويوجد مقطع فيديو يوضح ذات المشاهد في مدينة أزرع. كما تم نشر فيديو لاستهداف طفل في الثانية عشر من عمره في مدينة أزرع في درعا وهي ظاهرة تكررت في الآونة الأخيرة

منعطف تحول           
اعتبر الكثيرين مظاهرات الجمعة العظيمة منعطف تحول كبير في مسار التظاهرات في سورية التي انطلقت في الخامس عشر من شهر آذار الماضي، فالمطالب التي تمثلت بالهتافات واللافتات المصاحبة للتظاهرات قد ارتفعت بشكل ملحوظ، ولوحظ غياب المطالبات بالإصلاح ليحل مكانها المطالبة بإسقاط النظام مع الاحتفاظ بسلمية التحركات، وهو ما اعتبره الكثير من المراقبين للأحداث أنه تحول إلى مطلب شعبي عام

كما وأن جرأة المواطنين على الاحتجاج قد زادت بشكل ملحوظ خلال التظاهرات الأخيرة حسب قول المراقبين وذلك من خلال العمل على ترتيب حملات تسعى لتحطيم التماثيل وتمزيق الصور للجنرال الأسد والرئيس بشار والمنتشرة بشكل واسع في البلاد خلال سير المظاهرات، وهي ظاهرة باتت منتشرة بعد أن كانت من المحرمات

وبدأ المواطنين في المدن السورية بتغيير أسماء الشوارع والمرافق العامة في المدن، ومن أبرز ماتم تغييره خلال يوم الجمعة 22 نيسان هو مشفى الأسد في مدينة درعا ليصبح مشفى: أعيدوا الجولان

بالنسبة للتعتيم الإعلامي لا تزال السلطات في سورية تمنع الصحفيين والمراسلين من دخول سورية، كما وتمنع مكاتب القنوات الفضائية من العمل، وقد تزامنت عمليات قطع وسائل الاتصالات والانترنت وكذلك قطع التيار الكهربائي مع خروج التظاهرات في أكثر من مدينة

Rights activist: Syrian authorities detain dozens (Forbes)


By BASSEM MROUE , 04.24.11, 10:21 AM EDT 

BEIRUT — Syrian security forces detained dozens of opposition activists and others in raids Sunday launched less than a week after President Bashar Assad‘s regime abolished emergency laws used for decades to crush dissent, a human rights activistsaid.The police sweeps, which began late Saturday, reinforce opposition claims that the repeal of the nearly 50-year-old state of emergency codes offers no protection against blitz-style detentions by Assad’s forces.

Also Sunday, the watchdog group Human Rights Watch called for a U.N. inquiry into Syria’s widening crackdown on opposition protesters that has left more than 120 dead people in recent days and brought some resignations in protest from Assad’s regime.

“I pay my respect to the martyrs,” said Bashir Mohammed al-Zoebi, one of two provincial council members who left their posts Sunday in the southern region Daraa, which has the highest death toll in the country.

Ammar Qurabi, head of the National Organization for Human Rights in Syria, said the arrests concentrated on the capital Damascus and suburbs as well as the central city of Homs, which has been a hotbed of demonstrations against Assad’s authoritarian rule.

“These people are not being arrested in a legal way. They are being kidnapped,” Qurabi said, claiming the plainclothes security agents did not have formal arrest warrants.

Every other journalist is trying to get into Syria, but on Saturday I was trying to get out. The government had made it perfectly clear: My visa was expiring and unless I left on April 23, I would “face the full force of the law”.

I had agreed the night before with my cameraman, Ben Mitchell, over a drink that neither of us wanted to discover what “full force of the law” meant. So the debate was really whether I should fly out from Damascus or drive to Amman, Jordan, and fly from there.

The decision was made that he would fly out from Damascus, the Syrian capital, with the gear and I would drive to Amman. I had left my second passport there with a friend. One for Arab countries and the other for Israel. Welcome to 21st century diplomatic relations.

I decided to wait until after noon prayers before setting out south to the border. If the roads were going to be blocked with various pieces of burning detritus, as they had the day before, I wanted to know first. It’s about 125km from Damascus to the Jordanian border – a drive that should only take an hour or so, especially with the way Syrian drivers tend to step on the gas.

I was in a really bad mood on this particular morning as I was by default being expelled from the country. I said very little to the driver as we set out, which is unusual for me. I’ve been grilled in the old school style of journalism: I can still hear the voice of one of my mentors saying “eyes and ears Mr Perry … eyes and ears”.

The only two questions I asked my driver as we left Damascus were his name, and where he was from. “Abdel … from Daraa,” he told me.

“Beautiful city,” I responded.

Truth was: I didn’t know if it was beautiful or not. It was less than four weeks ago when I tried to access the city (which lies right against the Jordanian border in the South) and was turned back by the army. It was my first week in Syria when we tried to cover the initial protests in Daraa. I remember coming across that army checkpoint and two machine gun positions had been “pre-sighted”.

US Marines technique

An old military technique that I learned from the US Marine Corps about after years in Iraq: Soldiers will simply take two posts, put them at approximately “two o’clock and ten o’clock” as your eyes would scan the horizon: a certain distance out – fire off a few rounds until you hit the post. Then mark that spot on the machine guns sightings – and just like that … you’ve got yourself a “pre-sighted kill zone”.

A kill zone. The name says it all. US Marines have a particular knack for naming things that describe exactly what they really are.

I knew that day, seeing those posts and that “kill zone” that the government was taking these small demonstrations (at the time) very seriously. Syria up until these past five weeks had been a quiet country, while the rest of the region seemed to continue to burn.

Of course it became clear the day before, on April the 22nd, that the government would no longer stand for the type of dissent that had spread: clear opposition to the regime. Over a hundred people were killed across the country on a bloody Friday, the bloodiest since the protests began.

I tried to get out of the hotel and around the country as best I could throughout my month there. But as I told a colleague: “I don’t blend in really well – and this government is rounding up journalists.”

It was really that, and a few bad incidents I had come across while trying to get out and about. Be it my camera being wrested away from me outside the main mosque in Damascus or my drive through the neighbourhood of Barza in Damascus the previous week.

Barzah: A bad neighbourhood to begin with … it had gone from bad to worse the Friday I decided to drive through and take a look. Men with metal pipes were in the middle of the street beating people. At least a dozen walking wounded were headed away from the main mosque there, some bleeding from the head; others had their hands bandaged. Clearly there had been a hand-to-hand brutal battle. Ambulances raced away from the scene – and each time I would have the driver circle back they would wave the pipes as if to say: “We dare you to get out of that car.”

Gunfire raining into crowd

My grumpy attitude, Abdel (the driver) and I were approaching the city of Izraa when something immediately clearly horrible was unfolding down the road directly in front of us. People, mostly truck drivers, were standing on the highway … yelling at the cars approaching – telling them to pull over. Screaming and waving widely. I saw one making signs with his hands. He was mimicking the motion of a machine gun firing. I got my bearings, noticing right away two road signs: one pointing to the right that read “Izraa: 1km” and the other pointing to the left that read “Daraa”.

It dawned on me at that moment that I had been here before. We were just outside the “kill zone” I had seen weeks earlier on the outskirts of Daraa.

About 50 metres from where we pulled over was an overpass that connected Daraa to Izraa. I could see clearly a crowd of people marching from my left to my right over the bridge.

Suddenly gunfire rained into the crowd. The truck drivers dove for cover. And, for what seemed like an eternity, I sat there in the car, stunned and frozen. People were falling on top of each other, being cut down like weeds in a field by what I think must have been a mix of both small arms fire and machine gun fire. I saw at least two children shot. They fell immediately. People were screaming. Gunfire rattled on.

Two cars tried to gun it under the overpass and continue down the highway, even with the gunfire continuing to cut people up. One of the cars got hit immediately before it passed under the bridge and ended up slamming into the embankment on the right side of the road. Someone fell out of the passenger side and scrambled under the bridge and crawled into a ball … just hoping for survival, I suppose.

I’ve been playing it through over and over again in my head for the past 16 hours and I still do not know where the gunfire was coming from. It seemed to be coming from a field that lay off to my right – on the Izraa side of the bridge. I could see some muzzle flashes, but I’ve never in my life seen people walking, and just shot at indiscriminately.

I could not take my eyes off what was quickly becoming carnage. One of the last things I remember seeing clearly were people lying flat on the road, taking cover behind those who had already been wounded or shot dead … lying in what must have been pools of blood to avoid a hail of flying hot hell.

Abdel’s brain finally switched back on and he flung the car into reverse and headed backwards down the highway, laying on his car horn the entire time, weaving backwards through the cars that were now slowly approaching the spot where truck drivers were taking cover in the ditch. I was gripping the handle of the door so hard, I noticed my knuckles had gone totally white.

Syria’s president Ever more embattled For President Bashar Assad, things are going from bad to worse


 | DAMASCUS | from the print edition

THE president of Syria is in a fix. Bashar Assad must decide whether to copy the tactics of Hosni Mubarak, who tried too late to appease the protesters, or those of Muammar Qaddafi, who killed many hundreds of his people when they turned against him. But he is swinging between those two poles. Neither course is doing him much good. The killing of at least 15 people in

the early hours of April 19th in Homs, the country’s third city after Damascus, the capital, and Aleppo, may have marked a turning point. Mr Assad’s grip looks increasingly weak.

His first attempt at dampening dissent by promising reform, in an address to parliament on March 30th, was a failure, because his belated offer seemed vague and haughtily insincere. On April 16th he tried again, this time with a speech to government insiders. He said citizens needed dignity. He acknowledged Syria’s economic woes and spared his audience his usual railing against foreign conspiracies.

He sounded more sincere (and more desperate) than before. He may even have been trying to signal a change of tack. But the people on the street no longer take much notice. The protests in Homs got going immediately after his second speech.

Getting a foothold in that city is a big step for the opposition, which had failed to foment sustained unrest in the heart of Damascus or Aleppo. On April 18th thousands of demonstrators sat down in Homs’s main square, which they renamed Tahrir (Liberation) Square, after the Cairo one. But at 2am, after the protesters refused to move, the security forces opened fire with tear-gas and bullets.

The next day Mr Assad promised, not for the first time, to lift the emergency laws that have been in use since 1963 and have given the security forces carte blanche to deal with dissent. But this, too, may have come too late. At rallies across the country, chants calling for Mr Assad’s resignation have begun to drown out those calling for reform. In any case, the lifting of emergency laws, finally announced on April 19th, may not necessarily improve the behaviour of the security services. Nor has Mr Assad promised to free political prisoners.
Yet if he were to meet all of the protesters’ demands, his regime might be fatally weakened. Dominated by members of the minority Alawite sect, to which the president belongs, it depends on the loyalty of the security forces, which are bought off by largesse. If, as the protesters demand, this patronage system were ended, Mr Assad’s hand would be severely weakened. Likewise, a promise to legalise opposition parties could be politically suicidal.

Praying in Homs for Assad to go

He is also taking a risk by blaming conservative Sunnis for the recent troubles, linking them to militant Islamists such as al-Qaeda. “Their terrorist activities will not be tolerated,” say government spokesmen. Such charges raise the spectre of the 1980s, when a revolt by the Muslim Brothers was ruthlessly suppressed, leaving around 20,000 dead. Mr Assad may not be as brutal as his father, Hafez Assad, who oversaw that wave of repression—and survived. Yet if he is not, his days in charge may be numbered.

Shameful U.S. inaction on Syria’s massacres


By Editorial, Friday, April 22, 5:16 PM

FOR THE PAST five weeks, growing numbers of Syrians have been gathering in cities and towns across the country to demand political freedom — and the security forces of dictator Bashar al-Assad have been responding by opening fire on them. According to Syrian human rights groups, more than 220 people had been killed by Friday. And Friday may have been the worst day yet: According to Western news organizations, which mostly have had to gather information from outside the country, at least 75 people were gunned down in places that included the suburbs of Damascus, the city of Homs and a village near the southern town of Daraa, where the protests began.

Massacres on this scale usually prompt a strong response from Western democracies, as they should. Ambassadors are withdrawn; resolutions are introduced at the U.N. Security Council; international investigations are mounted and sanctions applied. In Syria’s case, none of this has happened. The Obama administration has denounced the violence — a presidential statement called Friday’s acts of repression “outrageous” — but otherwise remained passive. Even the ambassador it dispatched to Damascus during a congressional recess last year remains on post.

The administration has sat on its hands despite the fact that the Assad regime is one of the most implacable U.S. adversaries in the Middle East. It is Iran’s closest ally; it supplies Iranian weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in the Gaza Strip for use against Israel. Since 2003 it has helped thousands of jihadists from across the Arab world travel to Iraq to attack American soldiers. It sought to build a secret nuclear reactor with the help of North Korea and destabilized the pro-Western government of neighboring Lebanon by sponsoring a series of assassinations.

Like people across the Middle East, the protesters in Syria say that they are seeking the establishment of a democratic system. A statement issued by organizers of the protests Friday called for an end to torture and killings by security forces; the release of all political prisoners; an investigation into the deaths of those killed so far; and reform of the constitution, including a limit on presidential terms. The mass demonstrations on Good Friday were called to show that the cause is neither Islamic nor sectarian.

Yet the Obama administration has effectively sided with the regime against the protesters. Rather than repudiate Mr. Assad and take tangible steps to weaken his regime, it has proposed, with increasing implausibility, that his government “implement meaningful reforms,” as the….

ملخص أحداث الثورة السورية
اليوم ٣٩: الجمعة العظيمة، ٢٢ نيسان/أبريل ٢٠١١
Bloodshed & Watershed!

Will the tragic bloodshed that took place in Syria on Good Friday usher in a watershed moment in the international community’s handling of the situation? This is what many Syrians hope for in order to prevent further escalation of violence on parts of the authorities.
With death toll of over 100 in the span of few hours, this was by far the bloodiest day in the Syrian Revolution, so far. The story gets more tragic when we take under consideration that we are not talking about a violent conflict here in which both sides are heavily armed, but one that pits unarmed civilians chanting for freedom against thugs armed with electric batons and Kalashnikovs and snipers with orders to shoot to kill. As the world watched, Good Friday in Syria turned into an open season on protesters dreaming of freedom. But if the Assads were hoping that this will serve to intimidate the protesters or help contain their movement, they don’t have long to wait before they learn how wrong they are. For the thirst for freedom is no less irrational than that for blood.

While protests broke out in almost every major city, town and suburb in Syria, violence, for the most part, was restricted to certain Damascene suburbs and neighborhoods as well as Deraa and Homs. But while in Deraa the intention seems to have been to punish the people who started it all, in Homs and Damascus, the thinking was to prevent, by any means necessary, an attempt at marching towards and occupying the main squares.

Still, today, and for the first time since the beginning of the Syrian Revolution, Damascus itself witnessed major protests (3,000-4,000 participants) that took place in some of its more traditional neighborhoods, Al-Midan and Al-Qadam, in a development that might have wider repercussions over the next few days.

The main demand of protesters everywhere has become regime change. It will be foolish to believe that after today’s bloodbath, protesters would settle for any scenario that will keep Bashar in power. Whether he is losing control of his security apparatuses, as some still claim, or not, ultimately, he is the one responsible, and he is deeply and widely believed by the protesters on the basis of his performance during this crisis to be part of the problem, if not its very embodiment.

Three items in particular deserve to be highlighted today: 1) the use of tanks to besiege the suburbs of Mouaddamiyyah and Darayyah near Damascus, 2) the prevalence of elderly security officers in the streets, which denote that the Assads are relying heavily on the reserves, perhaps as a reflection of their inability to trust all available army units in this crackdown, and 3) the use of explosive bullets to kill as evident in the type of wounds made.

الجمعة العظيمة.. الشاهد الأخير

لم تختلف الجمعة العظيمة كما أطلق عليها منظمو التظاهرات في سورية عن سابقتها كثيراً فهي شاهد جديد على عنف النظام وقمعه القسري لمطالبات الإصلاح، فمنذ مساء يوم الخميس لوحظ انتشار واسع لقوات الأمن ومركباتهم في شتى المدن السورية واستمر ذلك صباح يوم الجمعة
مظاهرات حاشدة
بدأت المظاهرات عقب صلاة الجمعة في مختلف المدن والمناطق السورية من الشمال إلى الجنوب ومن الشرق إلى الغرب بلا استثناء، ولكن ما ميز هذه التحركات هو مقدرتها للمرة الأولى من التمركز الكبير في العاصمة دمشق وفي الأحياء الرئيسية فيها كحي الميدان، ولم تغب المظاهرات التي خرجت بأعداد حاشدة عن أي من المدن السورية
تقدر حصيلة القتلى للجمعة العظيمة الذين سقطوا برصاص قوات الأمن بأكثر من مائة شهيد من مختلف المناطق، وإن كان الغالبية منهم قد سقط في درعا ودمشق وحمص، ومع ذلك لم تسلم أي من المظاهرات من حالات قتل أو وقوع جرحى مابين إصابات خطيرة ومتوسطة واعتقال أعداد كبيرة لم يتم التمكن من تقديرها
كما لوحظ خطف قوات الأمن لجثث القتلى وذلك حتى لا تعرف هوياتهم، كما واستخدمت السلطات الغازات المسلية للدموع ضد المتظاهرين العزل، ورُصد استخدام أسلحة محرمة لم يتم التعرف عليها، ولكنها ظهرت من خلال التشويه البالغ الذي تحدثه في جثث القتلى، وقد نشرت صورة لشهيد وقد خلع فكه إثر رصاصة أطلقت عليه من قبل سلطات الأمن، كما ويوجد مقطع فيديو يوضح ذات المشاهد في مدينة أزرع. كما تم نشر فيديو لاستهداف طفل في الثانية عشر من عمره في مدينة أزرع في درعا وهي ظاهرة تكررت في الآونة الأخيرة
منعطف تحول           
اعتبر الكثيرين مظاهرات الجمعة العظيمة منعطف تحول كبير في مسار التظاهرات في سورية التي انطلقت في الخامس عشر من شهر آذار الماضي، فالمطالب التي تمثلت بالهتافات واللافتات المصاحبة للتظاهرات قد ارتفعت بشكل ملحوظ، ولوحظ غياب المطالبات بالإصلاح ليحل مكانها المطالبة بإسقاط النظام مع الاحتفاظ بسلمية التحركات، وهو ما اعتبره الكثير من المراقبين للأحداث أنه تحول إلى مطلب شعبي عام
كما وأن جرأة المواطنين على الاحتجاج قد زادت بشكل ملحوظ خلال التظاهرات الأخيرة حسب قول المراقبين وذلك من خلال العمل على ترتيب حملات تسعى لتحطيم التماثيل وتمزيق الصور للجنرال الأسد والرئيس بشار والمنتشرة بشكل واسع في البلاد خلال سير المظاهرات، وهي ظاهرة باتت منتشرة بعد أن كانت من المحرمات
وبدأ المواطنين في المدن السورية بتغيير أسماء الشوارع والمرافق العامة في المدن، ومن أبرز ماتم تغييره خلال يوم الجمعة 22 نيسان هو مشفى الأسد في مدينة درعا ليصبح مشفى: أعيدوا الجولان
بالنسبة للتعتيم الإعلامي لا تزال السلطات في سورية تمنع الصحفيين والمراسلين من دخول سورية، كما وتمنع مكاتب القنوات الفضائية من العمل، وقد تزامنت عمليات قطع وسائل الاتصالات والانترنت وكذلك قطع التيار الكهربائي مع خروج التظاهرات في أكثر من مدينة

Tension & Hope in the Air!

With protesters set to throw the gauntlet back in Assad’s face again in the next few hours, tensions grow, and security officers and army troops take positions in suspected hotspots.

As Syrians keep waiting for Aleppo to fully commit to the protest movement, small demonstrations, the latest numbering around 500 participants and lasting for a couple of hours before being dispersed by security, continue to take place in the northern bastion on a daily basis as more and more people break the barrier of fear and try to encourage others to join. Will tomorrow witness the resurrection of Aleppo? We shall find out soon.

Meanwhile, Assad security forces continue to lay siege to known hotbeds around the country, including Talbisseh Town and Bayadah Neighborhood in Homs and the Mouaddamiyyeh, Darayyah, Zamalka, Jobar, Irbeen, Harasta, and Douma suburbs in Damascus. In Homs, security forces took over the newly dubbed Freedom Square in a preemptive move, and in Mouaddamiyyah, security forces briefly stormed into town in an attempt to intimidate the local residents who also report presence of snipers on rooftops of official buildings. Sandbags and security checkpoints can be seen at entrances and key locations in all of these places.

Kobani to the North witnessed a new protest celebrating national unity organized byte the majority-Kurdish population, in an act of double defiance aimed at the Assad regime as well traditional Kurdish parties still trying to toe a neutral line in the growing protest phenomenon.

To the Northeast, the city of Raqqa witnessed its protest to date with a few hundred participants, while in the South, the different cities and towns making up the Deraa Province continued to hold anti-Assad rallies and cleanse themselves of the last relics of the ancient regime by removing more Assad posters from public places, and work for the day when they can remove the actual Assads.

أجواء توتر وأمل

فيما المتظاهرون مصممون على تحدي الأسد مرة أخرى في الساعات القليلة القادمة، تزداد التوترات وتتخذ عناصر الأمن والجيش مواقعها في النقاط الساخنة

بينما ينتظر السوريون كلهم انضمام حلب، تستمر مظاهرات صغيرة في ذلك الحصن الشمالي كان آخرها بعدد حوالي 500 متظاهر واستمرت لبضع ساعات قبل أن يفرقها الأمن، فيما يزيد عدد الذين يكسرون حاجز الخوف ويحاولون تشجيع آخرين على المشاركة. هل يشهد الغد إحياء حلب؟ سنعرف قريبا

في هذه الأثناء، تستمر قوات أمن الأسد في محاصرة النقاط الساخنة في أنحاء البلاد، بما في ذلك بلدة تلبيسة وحي البيضا في حمص والمعضمية وداريا وزملكا وجوبر وعربين وحرستا وضواحي دوما في دمشق. في حمص، اجتاحت قوات الأمن الساحة المسماة حديثا بساحة التحرير في خطوة وقائية، وفي المعضمية اقتحمت قوات الأمن البلدة لفترة قصيرة في محاولة لإرهاب السكان الذين أوردوا وجود قناصة على أسطح المباني الرسمية. ويمكن رؤية أكياس رمل ونقاط أمنية في مداخل هذا الأماكن ومواقعها الحيوية

شهدت كوباني في الشمال مظاهرة جديدة احتفاءا بالوحدة الوطنية نظمته الأغلبية الكردية، في تحد مزدوج لنظام الأسد بينما الأحزاب الكردية التقليدية التي ما تزال تحاول أن تمشي على خط حيادي في خضم الاحتجاجات المتنامية
وفي الشمال الشرقي، شهدت مدينة الرقة احتجاجا لبضع مئات من المتظاهرين، بينما في الجنوب، المدن والبلدات المختلفة المكونة لمحافظة درعا استمرت في مظاهراتها ضد الأسد وفي تطهير نفسها من بقايا النظام بإزالة المزيد من صور الأسد من الأماكن العامة، وفي العمل لليوم الذي يستطيعون فيه إزالة عائلة الأسد نفسها
