President Bashar al-Assad gave assurances to UN representative that he would pull back his soldiers from towns and work for a cease fire. He made that promise last week, but today, the opposite is happening. Syrian troops launched attacks throughout the country and have killed at least 40 people yesterday. In the Damascus suburb of Douma, people were subjected to nonstop artillery attacks as snipers fired on any moving target.
In the embattled city of Homs, over a dozen more died. In the mountain village of Zabadeni, dozens of men were rounded up by security forces and jailed. Reality is that Assad will NOT halt his murderous campaign until all opposition groups are dead or in jail. Suicide bombers kill US troops because Korans were burned, but no suicide bomber has killed Syrian troops who murder at will–Muslims!
