Syria released Tribesman Activists

(dp-news -Agencies) DAMASCUS- A Syrian lawyer and human rights activist said on Sunday that Syrian authorities have released Sheikh Nawaf al-Bashir, the head of the large Baqara tribe in the eastern province of Deir al-Zour and a prominent opponent of President Bashar al-Assad.

Khalil Matouq told Xinhua by phone that Nawaf was released after about 69 days without charges. Some media reports had claimed that Nawaf was killed in custody after being tortured, which turned out to be false.

News and Reports were uploaded along many Social media networks online late afternoon on Sunday that Syrian authorities have released Sheikh Nawaf al-Bashir to calm down rage erupted at Northern east area after killing the Kurdish Activist Meshaal Tammo on Friday.

Meanwhile, President Bashar al-Assad vowed on Sunday to continue the political reform process and end 'armed manifestations' in the country, during a high-profile visit by a Latin American delegation.

In turn, Syria's foreign minister warned the international community not to recognize a new council formed by the opposition, saying it is "illegitimate."
Walid al-Moallem warned that Damascus will take measures against any country that recognizes the Syrian National Council. He did not elaborate.
Regarding the killing of Meshaal Tammo in Qamishli on Friday, al-Moallem said “Meshaal Tammo was killed by an armed terrorist group; Tammo was a Syrian Opposition who stands against the foreign interference into Syria.”

Also on Sunday, Turkey has condemned the “loathsome assassination” of top Kurdish activist Meshaal Tamo as well as attacks against leading opposition figures in Syria, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said according to AFP report.

“We... strongly condemn the attempts aiming to suppress the Syrian opposition and the increase in attacks targeting main representatives of the opposition,” the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement posted on its website late on Saturday.

Turkey is deeply sorry for the “loathsome assassination” of Mr Tamo, as well as the wounding of prominent dissident Riad Seif who was injured after being beaten on Friday in Damascus, the statement said.

“Turkey expects the Syrian government to realise as soon as possible that practices of violence aiming to suppress the Syrian opposition will not reverse the course of history,” it said.

Syria has been through tense as uprising which started mid March is still on. The international community calls for sanctions on Syria over the government's alleged deadly crackdown on protesters that claimed lives of more than 2,900 civilians, according to recent UN estimates.
The Syrian government says that the movement against President al-Assad`s regime does not have popular support and blames violence on "armed terrorist groups". It says that more than 700 soldiers and police have been killed in the uprising.
The Syrian government has banned foreign journalists and placed heavy restrictions on local coverage, making it difficult to independently verify reports.
