April 29 – Friday of Rage

leave a comment »

Widespread mass protests across Syria on a Friday dubbed the day of rage. Thousands took to the streets in Damascus Banyas Hama Qamishly Homs and many towns and cities in support of the besieged city of Daraa and to demand freedom. Human rights groups report over 50 dead as security forces open fire on protesters in several places, the worst being at checkpoints near Daraa, which continues to be blocked off by tanks and troops, with all communication and utilities cut. Meanwhile the U.N human rights council has condemned the use of force against peaceful protesters and called for an investigation, as the U.S imposes sanctions on several key figures of the regime.

Daraa still under siege by troops and tanks, all utilities and communications are cut, with reports of dead bodies on the streets and the storming of homes and arrests of dozens. Meanwhile the army continues to surround Banyas, and many suburbs of Damascus are witnessing wide security operation aimed at cutting off the area with hundreds reported arrested. The U.N security council has failed to draft a resolution condemning the violence in Syria due to objections by Russia, China and Lebanon, while activists have called for widespread protests tomorrow in a day dubbed the “Friday of rage”.
