sky news report


More than a dozen people have died and hundreds more have been wounded during a crackdown on anti-government protests in Syria.
Amateur video shows people on the street running for cover as constant sounds of gunfire surrounded the governor's house in Daraa in the country's south.

Security forces are reported to have opened fire with rubber bullets and live rounds to disperse stone-throwing protesters during demonstrations in Daraa, Homs and Harasta.

Early reports indicate at least 22 protesters were killed - 17 in Daraa, two in Homs and three in Harasta.


Thousands of demonstrators leaving from three mosques marched to the courthouse but security forces dressed in civilian clothing fired tear gas to disperse them.

An anonymous activist in Daraa

Syrian TV says 19 members of security forces were also killed and 75 wounded by "armed groups" in Daraa.

An activist said the situation in the city, about 60 miles (100km) south of the capital, Damascus, was "very tense".

"Thousands of demonstrators leaving from three mosques marched to the courthouse but security forces dressed in civilian clothing fired tear gas to disperse them," he said.

"Demonstrators threw stones and clashes ensued."

He added that protesters angered by the deaths set fire to the ruling Baath party's headquarters in the city.



People duck for cover as they come under fire in Daraa



And in northern Syria, thousands of people are also understood to have marched in five towns including Hassake and Ammuda, calling for an end to emergency rule and the release of prisoners, another activist said.

The rallies came a day after Syrian president Bashar al Assad granted citizenship to tens of thousands of Kurds who had been denied nationality for nearly half a century because of a controversial census.

Following the latest clashes and subsequent deaths, Foreign Secretary William Hague has called for the Syrian government to respect the right of peaceful protest.

"I am deeply concerned by the continuing deaths and violence in Syria, including in Daraa earlier today," he said in a statement.



William Hague is concerned at the escalating Syrian violence



"I condemn the killing of demonstrators by the Syrian security forces.

"Political reforms must be brought forward and implemented without delay."

Since March 15, when dozens marched in Damascus in what activists called the first overt protest in Syria since a state of emergency was declared in 1963, violent demonstrations and marches have intensified in the country.

On April 1, the International Federation for Human Rights (IFHR) put the death toll from the Syrian conflict at 123.

Syria Mourns Protest Deaths As Anger Mounts

*

* Comments

5:24am UK, Saturday April 23, 2011
Scores of pro-democracy protesters killed by security forces will be buried across Syria in funerals expected to fuel mounting defiance against authoritarian rule.

The services, which are likely to attract large crowds, come after a day in which at least 88 civilians were reportedly shot dead by gunmen loyal to president Bashar al Assad.

A list with the names of each of those killed was sent out by the Local Coordination Committees activist group.

It said they came from areas stretching from the port city of Latakia to Homs, Hama, Damascus and the southern village of Izra'a.

This outrageous use of violence to quell protests must come to an end now. Instead of listening to their own people, president Assad is blaming outsiders while seeking Iranian assistance in repressing Syria's citizens.

President Barack Obama

The deaths represented by far the bloodiest day yet in a month of demonstrations demanding political freedoms and an end to corruption in the country of 20 million people.

A Syrian human rights campaigner said: "The funerals will turn into vehement protests, like past funerals.

"When you have security services who are thugs it is difficult to think that they will not shoot at the crowds. Another cycle of funerals and demonstrations is likely to follow."

A still from an amateur video reportedly shows an anti-government protest in Deraa on April 22.

Several thousand people are said to have gathered in Deraa

Foreign journalists are not being granted entry into Syria, but gruesome amateur video has emerged apparently showing protesters dead and badly injured from the clashes.

US President Barack Obama joined British Foreign Secretary William Hague in condemning the violence and accused president Assad of seeking help from Iran.

"This outrageous use of violence to quell protests must come to an end now," Obama said in a statement.

"Instead of listening to their own people, president Assad is blaming outsiders while seeking Iranian assistance in repressing Syria's citizens."

Protesters are piling pressure on President Assad

Mr Hague said he was "extremely concerned" by the reports from Syria.

"I condemn the unacceptable killing of demonstrators by the Syrian security forces," he said.

"I call on the Syrian security forces to exercise restraint instead of repression, and on the Syrian authorities to respect the Syrian people's right to peaceful protest."

Those killed were among tens of thousands of people who have taken to the streets across Syria calling for the overthrow of the regime, demands which have hardened over recent weeks.

I said from the beginning that all these rebellions simultaineously in the Middle East were engineered and wondered where they got their Weapons,
The shiites were the underdogs in Iraq, Saddam Hussein favouring the sunnis, but when he was overthrown the shiites did not succeed in taking power.
I thought it was the U,S, at one time destabilising the Middle East but not so sure now .

Full transcript of the phone report I did min after what I saw in #Izraa #Syria #AJE

"I was travelling north to south on the main Damascus highway that runs from Damascus to Amman, and about 20km before the border, there's an overpass that connects Izraa to the town of Deraa. On that overpass, people were marching and we were sort of warned off on that highway, people stopping, pulling us over to the side of the road. And about 50 metres in front of me you could see the overpass - people marching - and they were met with a hail of gunfire, many people certainly wounded directly in front of us, cars turned around, and I can tell you it was an incredibly chaotic scene, and it seems as though pretty much everyone down here in the southern part of the country is now carrying weapons. It is unclear who was firing at whom, that's part of the confusion ... but clearly a very violent incident now being carried out here in the south of the country.

"It seemed pretty clear to me that this was a funeral procession crossing over the overpass, and they were met with gunfire as I said. It was unclear which direction the gunfire was coming from. I did not see anyone returning fire, I only saw fire in one direction. But as I said, the road has been completely cut off, and there is now a very heavy army presence along the highway.

"Pretty much all of the side roads that lead into the towns to the east and to the west of the main highway ... have been cut completely off by the army.

"I think it's pretty clear now that the government feels that the eyes of the world are elsewhere, and that this is the best way to deal with what they are calling an armed insurrection ... we saw this yesterday, and clearly we're seeing this again today. The government was clearly anticipating funerals like this, and clearly was anticipating that violence could break out at these funerals, people are obviously very angry because they've had family members who have been killed, and I think the government was anticipating violence, but what I witnessed was a clear, brutal use of force on behalf of the security forces.

"Medical personnel could not get to this overpass, because of the situation."

Dominic Waghorn, Middle East correspondent
Concern is mounting for tens of thousands of Syrians trapped in a military
siege imposed on their towns as party of bloody crackdown on protests.











Troops and tanks remain the town of Deraa in the south and Douma, near the
capital Damascus.
Residents say water and electricity have been cut off and medicine and food
are in short supply.
Snipers are said to be shooting civilians if they leave their homes.
Young men are reportedly being hauled out of their homes and taken away in
buses.
The military assault on the protest movement is in its seventh day.



You can only imagine what is going through the mind of the
first lady, British born and educated and more than capable of understanding
what is going on.
Sky's Dominic Waghorn blogs on
Syrian first lady Asma Assad



Tanks have been reported in other towns.
More than 60 people are thought to have been killed since Friday.
Despite the crackdown Syrians are continuing their uprising against the Assad
regime.
New footage emerging on YouTube shows protestors being shot in cold blood at
a range of less than a 100 yards.
Others stay on the street defying the gunfire. A woman shouts at the police
that they are dogs.
Residents in Deraa say overnight women and children took to the rooftops
shouting: "God is great, greater than the tyrant."
The Assad regime is defying international condemnation and calls for
restraint, but is losing its legitimacy. In the past it has won support across
the Arab world for its hostility to Israel.



Protesters take to street in Syrian city of Banias


Now it has turned its guns on its own people and killed hundreds in an effort
to quell the unrest and keep its grip on power.
Neighbouring Arab countries have been mute in their criticism in contrast to
their ready willingness to condemn Israel when it uses tanks and soldiers to
kill Arabs in Gaza and the West Bank.
Arab members of the UN Human Rights Council abstained from a vote condemning
the violence.
America has announced limited sanctions and the European Union has been
saying for more than a week it is considering a range of options.

How can the world function as one when nation's

Asma
Assad: What Can She Be Thinking?










Dominic
Waghorn May 01, 2011 10:54 AM








I interviewed Asma al Assad two years ago, the beautiful, intelligent
wife of Syria's leader.

It was not long after the Gaza War and in between filming she shared
her thoughts about the conflict. I remember her exact words: 'You don't
understand how difficult it was for us in this region to watch those pictures
every day on our televisions'.

Well now we are watching similar pictures again, only this time it is
her husband's soldiers doing the killing not Israelis and they are slaughtering
their own people.

You can only imagine what is going through the mind of the first
lady, British born and educated and more than capable of understanding what is
going on.

And you can only imagine what is going through the minds of leaders
across the region. You can only imagine because they are not saying a thing.

If these were Israeli tanks and troops storming Syrian towns and
killing hundreds you could predict the outrage. If Israeli forces were shooting
unarmed Syrians on the streets, cutting off food, water and electricity, using
helicopters to storm a mosque there would have been immediate calls for
condemnation at the UN and swift action.

But when the UN human rights council met to condemn Syria on Friday,
Qatar, Bahrain and Jordan did not even turn up to vote: Saudi Arabia abstained
and post-revolutionary Egypt asked for amendments to water down the
resolution.

Bashar al Assad played the Zionist card effectively over the years,
using his hostility to Israel to increase his credibility and popularity.

But few were under any illusion Syria's pampered and well paid elite
military units and presidential guard forces were not just there to counter the
threat of Israeli invasion. Their commanders were handpicked loyalists from the
minority Shia Alawite sect and they were well resourced to ensure their loyalty
in case of a threat from within Syria.

For a week now they have been enforcing sieges in a number of towns
where serious humanitarian situations are developing. Siege is an emotive term
in this region bringing to mind the crippling blockade Israel has imposed on
Gaza over the years.

It is a last resort for any Arab leader to send in troops to kill and
besiege his own people. It means Bashar al Assad has lost all credibility, even
though he remains in control for now even if many in the region remain silent
about is going on.

The latest estimate is almost 1,000 people killed in Syria and there is nothing NATO can do because their only

YEMENI TROOPS ATTACK TAIZ PROTESTERS

Post  Panda on Mon 30 May - 6:51




Yemeni Troops Attack Taiz Protesters
Comments5:05am UK, Monday May 30, 2011

Yemeni forces loyal to President Ali Abdullah Saleh have opened fire on protesters in the city of Taiz, killing at least six people and wounding 120, hospital sources said.


At least six protesters died and 120 were injured in the city of Taiz


A Reuters photographer at the scene on Sunday said police fired live ammunition, tear gas and used water cannons to disperse demonstrators protesting outside a municipal building.

The demonstrators in the southern city had been demanding the release of a fellow protester who was arrested on May 28.

The clashes took place near Freedom Square where thousands of anti-government protesters have been camping since January to demand Mr Saleh's overthrow.

Police set two tents on fire in the square and protesters hurled petrol bombs and rocks at police.



President Saleh is seeing his support eroded away


Meanwhile, in the capital Sanaa, seven explosions were heard on Sunday night in the district of Hasaba, the scene of week-long fighting between Mr Saleh's forces and a rival tribe in which 115 people were killed, residents said.

There were no immediate details on the explosions, which appeared to have partially breached a truce between government forces and the powerful Hashed tribe led by Sadeq al-Ahmar in the bloodiest fighting this year.

Mr Ahmar condemned what he described as "Saleh's new massacre" against civilians in Taiz, however earlier on Sunday his men handed back control of a government building to mediators as part of a ceasefire deal.

Meanwhile, a breakaway military group called for other army units to join them in the fight to bring down Mr Saleh, piling pressure on him to end his three-decade rule over the destitute country.



Thousands of protesters have put the government under pressure


Despite global and regional powers demanding he step down, he has refused to sign a deal, mediated by Gulf states, to start a transition of power aimed at averting civil war that could shake the region that supplies the world with oil.

"We call on you not to follow orders to confront other army units or the people," the breakaway units said in a statement read by General Abdullah Ali Aleiwa, a former defence minister.

Opposition leaders separately accused Mr Saleh of allowing the city of Zinjibar, on the Gulf of Aden, to fall to al Qaeda and Islamists militants in order to raise alarm in the region that would in turn translate to support for the president.

Residents in Zinjibar, about 170 miles southeast of the capital, said armed men likely from al Qaeda had control of the city in the flashpoint province of Abyan.

"About 300 Islamic militants and al Qaeda men came into Zinjibar and took over everything on Friday," a resident said.

Nearly 300 Yemenis have been killed over the past few months as the president has tried to stop pro-reform protests by force.

Generals and government officials began to abandon Mr Saleh after deaths of civilians

2:33am UK, Saturday June 04, 2011

The number of people killed during anti-government protests in Syria has risen to at least 63, according to a human rights group.

:: Images of protesters in this video are from a social media website and the source cannot be verified.

The organisation Sawasiah said 53 demonstrators were killed in the city of Hama, one in Damascus and two in the northwestern province of Idlib.

Seven people were also killed in the town of Rastan in central Syria, which has been under a military assault and siege by tanks since Sunday.

Rami Abdul-Rahman, director of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said around 50,000 were protesting in Hama when security forces opened fire.

It was one of the largest anti-government protests so far in the country's 10-week revolt against President Bashar Assad's regime, he said.

"Because there are many people who have severe injuries, I expect the death toll to rise," Mr Abdul-Rahman added.

"These figures are not from all the hospitals," he said.



Protesters want President Assad to step down


Syrians had taken to the streets throughout the country to demand President Assad step down, rejecting government concessions to free political prisoners and start a national dialogue.

In response, the regime has cut internet services across most of the country, activists have claimed, cutting off the lifeblood of a movement motivated by graphic YouTube videos of the crackdown and protests organised on Facebook.

Syria's state-run TV said three "saboteurs" were killed when police tried to stop them from setting a government building on fire in Hama.

The Syrian government blames armed gangs and religious extremists for the violence.

Britain has accused Syria of showing "an abhorrent disregard for human life".

Foreign Office Minister Alistair Burt called for an end to the "callous and brutal" response of the regime and said President Assad needed to show that his promises of a "national dialogue" and other reforms were serious.
