Over 400 Civilians Slaughtered in Syria During Clashes Against Regime

THOUSANDS turned out today for the funerals of civilians slaughtered by the Assad regime.

Over 400 civilians were slaughtered in Syria yesterday during clashes with the Assad regime.
Al Arabiya reported:

Damascus on Saturday said gunmen were responsible for the killing of more than 400 civilians across Syria, the state media reported.

At least 416 civilians were killed by the Syrian forces across the country while the rebel Free Syrian Army (FSA) vowed to fight back with intense operations against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.

Early Saturday, the anti-Assad regime army intensified its campaign against the government’s forces as it destroyed an air intelligence building in Homs, the Syrian Media Center reported. Hours later, the media center said that a huge explosion took place in Hama close to the border entrance of Halab. And in the rebel-held al-Zabadani, the opposition fighters went on to surround a government security building, the media center said.

Ammar al-Wawi, an FSA official, told Al Arabiya that the free army vows more operations against Assad’s forces to include targets such as military and police headquarters.

Initially, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 138 of the fatalities were caused by mortar fire in the Al-Khalidiya district of Homs, which has become a flashpoint of the 10-month revolt against the regime of Assad. Civilians, including women and children were killed, a rights group said on Saturday.

But Al Arabiya correspondent said that the death toll in Homs alone included 337 people killed and 1,300 others injured. The correspondent also reported that the Khalidiya hospital in Homs was destroyed.

Residents said Syrian forces began shelling the Khalidiya neighborhood at around 8 p.m. (1800 GMT) on Friday using artillery and mortars. They said at least 36 houses were completely destroyed with families inside.

    Seems like it was just last year that Anna Wintour’s Democrat propaganda rag -“Vogue” ran a glowingly gushing spread on the Assads.

    Gheez, what ever happened to oBama’s “duty to protect doctrine” he used to justify intervention in Libya.

    The US need not get involved in Syria, but it just puts a fine point on the hypocrisy and BS that is Barack oBama.

    At least 416 less potential jihadis.

    Face it, the moment Assad is removed, what will happen? The same as in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya. More islam, more fascism, say hello to yet another mullah state.

    Let them kill each other.

    I don’t feel sorry for these people, neither do I believe they are being killed by anyone but themselves.. these same people who are screaming they are unfairly treated, would kill a Christian or a Jew in a heartbeat.. Rape any woman or child out without a escort and blow-up or firebomb an American embassy with in seconds. If told to do so by their peace loving Imans.

    Actually the violence is unlikely directed against Christians because he knows that they are not among the rebels and Christians know that their persecution will be worse under an islamist govt. and try to keep a very low profile by not opposing or supporting any arab govt. Lebanon was the only placethat did not demand dhimmi status but that ended and the jihadis have ruined what was once a civilized country.

    Syrians take up arms against their oppressors

    [M. Zuhdi Jasser, founding member of Save Syria Now!, tells me,
    Democracy activists and the opposition in Syria have delayed the
    use of the military option for as long as humanly possible. But after
    over eight months and more than 3,500 innocents dead and tens
    of thousands tortured, imprisoned, or displaced, they really have
    no other choice. Their towns and families are being destroyed, and
    it seems that Assad and his henchmen are only digging in more.”
    He explains, “Tuesday’s actions of the Free Syria Army against multiple
    military installations of the rogue Assad regime signals a significant shift
    from the predominantly peaceful protests that have dominated the

    Right now the Obama administration has no effective Syrian policy. It
    therefore should come as no surprise that Syrians are taking up arms
    against their oppressors. Once again, “leading from behind” is proving
    to be a formula for extended suffering and death for those under the
    boot of despotic regimes. ]
