Syrian Revolution News Round-up ملخص أحداث الثورة السورية Day 47: Saturday, 30 April 2011

Lift the Siege!
Protesters call Assad a traitor, and continue to defy his troops and thugs, as Kurds throw their lot completely behind their Arab compatriots thus deepening Assad’s crisis.Calls for toppling the regime adopted by Kurdish protesters in the city of Amoudeh on April 29 marks the first time Kurdish protesters have adopted this cry and signify an important milestone in Kurdish attitude towards the protest movement and their future in Syria. The movement has been a mostly Arab affair up to that moment. But now calls for ouster of the Assads are helping Syria’s Arab and Kurd communities find common grounds. While many analysts have taken pains to highlight the divisive effect of the protests movement, it is in actuality uniting most Syrians against their oppressors in a process that is helping the country’s myriad communities acknowledge their joint destiny.
With this development yet another tactic employed by the Assads to contain the protest movements seems to have failed. Syria’s Kurds refused to be coopted. The promise that Assad made to the Kurds calling for granting citizenship to over 300,000 denaturalized members of the Kurdish community has not had the desired effect. The Kurds will not be fooled by the promises of a tyrant. They have seen him renege on so many of them before.
According to eyewitness reports 6 people were killed by Assad troops. The dead included Osama Al-Sayassneh, son of Ahmad Al-Sayassneh, the Imam of Omary Mosque in Deraa City who was shot in the head for refusing to divulge the whereabouts of his father. Osama was host in the Mosque courtyard with three other young men.

Eyewitnesses report that 100 residents died in Deraa City alone since last Monday due to shelling and use of life gunfire against the locals by troops affiliated with the 4th Division.

Deraa City remains under siege with all basic services shut down, including communications, water and electricity. Food and medical supplies are running low, people depend on stored items. The cities of Kark and Sheikh Maskeen have also been attacked.

According to eyewitness reports, residents of Basra, Sayda, Maarbeh, etc. who came to the aid of Deraa City on April 29 were shot by army troops and security officers, fatalities and injuries reported.

50 women activists demonstrated in front of the People Assembly in Damascus to protest the siege of Deraa, 11 were arrested. Known opposition leaders Hassan Abdulazeem and Omar Qashash were also arrested and 3000 protesters held a candle light vigil in Bayas chanting anti-regime slogans.

Protest leaders called for a week of continuous protest to lift the siege imposed on Deraa City, Douma and other communities. Protests are planned throughout Deraa Province (Sunday), Damascus Suburbs (Monday), Banyas and Jableh (Tuesday) Homs and Talbisseh (Wednesday) and Tal Kalakh (Thursday). Nightly vigils are also scheduled to take place every night and throughout the country.

A video that came to light on Saturday morning shows that a massacre has taken place near the town of Talbisseh. Locals suspect the pro-Assad gangs known as the Shabbiha of being the perpetrators.
