Syria`s Regime & another Friday Protests

(Omar al-Shaar | Dp-news)

SYRIA- Friday after another; pressure has been piles inside and outside country at President Bashar al-Assad`s regime to end immediately end its brutal crackdown on anti-regime protesters and to withdraw army troops along other forces, especially the so-called “Shabiha”, out of towns and allow peaceful demonstrations as same as the pro-regime rallies.
 
This Friday name at anti-regime was called at “buffer zone to protect civilians”. According to media reports “Tens of thousands marched in protests across Syria on Friday calling for Turkey to create a buffer zone to protect civilians, as security forces killed at least five more people, activists said.”


 
The largest protests were held in the central Homs province and in the northern town of Hama, said Rami Abdel Rahman, head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
 
“In 17 districts (in the city of) Homs and at least nine neighbouring towns, tens of thousands of people called for the creation of a buffer zone to ensure their protection,” Abdel Rahman told AFP. “On Friday, Hama saw its biggest protests since the army entered the city in August,” he added. Media reports also high lightened “Smaller protests took place in Aleppo, in Damascus province and in the southern Deraa province.” The demonstrations came a day after mutinous soldiers attacked a Syrian air force intelligence base in Idlib, killing eight people, according to the Observatory.
 
The Britain-based rights watchdog said “five more civilians were killed by security forces on Friday, including a man and a woman gunned down at a checkpoint in Homs.” According to a video posted on YouTube, one sign in Aleppo read, “The Free Syrian Army protects me, the buffer zone protects me”, referring to a rebel force set up by army defectors and based in Turkey.

Protesters in Idlib, near the border with Turkey, also demanded the “fall of the regime and the establishment of a buffer zone to protect civilians,” said the Observatory. The demonstrations came a day after army defectors attacked a Syrian air force intelligence base in the northwestern province of Idlib, killing eight people, according to the Observatory. Meanwhile, on the Syrian-Lebanese border, four Lebanese, including an 11-year-old girl, were wounded while fleeing gunfire coming from across the Syrian side, Lebanese security officials said on Friday.
 
"A lot of gunfire [was] coming from the Syrian side towards the place where I am, Wadi Khaled, along the border with Syria in Lebanon," Al Jazeera said Friday.
 
Friday became a day to rally for pro-regime ones too, as many of them have been forming groups online and tried to apply a topic for each Friday to support Syria`s regime and President Bashar al-Assad. Thus; pro-regime marches also took place across the country on Friday in Damascus, Swieda, Latakkia, Hasakeh and the coastal towns of Jableh and Tartus.
 
The protesters “denounced measures taken by the Arab League against Syria and condemned attempts by foreigners to interfere in (Syria’s) internal affairs,” Syria state-run news agency SANA along with Syria TV reported Friday. SANA & Syria TV also said “Military engineering units on Friday dismantled an explosive device in the southern governorate of Daraa.”
 
SANA reports added that Syrian competent authorities in Daraa clashed with an armed terrorist group which tried to attack security posts in Daraa countryside, killing a gunman. Also, Military Engineering Unit dismantled two explosive devices planted by an armed terrorist group in Douma, Damascus Countryside. No injuries were reported, according to SANA.

SANA reported too “Another two explosive devices, planted by armed terrorist group in Hama , were also dismantled by the engineering units.” SANA also quoted a source at Hama Police Command as saying that two other explosive devices went off, one blew up while a law-enforcement patrol was passing by in a neighborhood south of the playground, injuring two of its members, whereas the second blew up in al-Ta'awunieh neighborhood. SANA reported Friday too, a "qualitative" operation by the authorities in Hama countryside released engineer Youssef al-Nayef, who was kidnapped few days ago by an armed terrorist group from his farm in al-Seih area in Mhardeh. Another two people were reported killed Friday when an explosive device went off in al-Ou'ayneh neighborhood in Lattakia, according to SANA.

Reagrding al-Jazeera reports, SANA stated a source at Idleb Police Command on Friday who denied as "totally untrue" the news broadcast by al-Jazeera Satellite channel on deaths among civilians at the hands of security forces in the city.
 
More EU, U.S. and Arab sanctions have been also applied Friday on Syrian personals and firms, who are involved at regime`s crackdown on protesters. The United Nations says more than 4,000 people have been killed in the Syrian regime’s crackdown on democracy protests since mid-March.
