The strike held last Wednesday in Syria did not go as the Syrian activists hope last week. Some cities joined while other cities could not as shops and offices were opened by the orders of the security to make this strike fail.
Anyhow there will always be Friday for the people of Syria and the Arab world to protest. Protests today again are all over the country , there are big protests in Homs , Hama , Hassaka , Suwaida , Reef Dimshaq , Daraa , Hauran ,Idlib, Aleppo and parts of Damascus. There is unconfirmed news that the people in Daraa were allowed to pray in mosques this Friday after weeks of banning them to do so.
Here is a protest in Homs
Here is a protest in Idlib
As usual the security forces are cracking down the protests violently as there reports of tear gas grenades and injured coming from Homs in the morning after the prayers.
Here is video showing clearly the security forces opening their fire against the protesters in Hama.
Here is a video showing the security forces cracking down the protests allegedly on May 20th somewhere in Syria. You can see the security forces used live ammunition based on riffles used in the footage while the protesters were just hurling rocks at them.
Here is a video showing security forces and their thugs destroying the citizens’ cars allegedly in Damascus.
At 3 PM Cairo local time while I was in Tahrir , I read tweets that not less 6 were killed across Syria and now it is 7:12 PM we find the human rights organizations speaking about 30 martyrs fallen in these few hours according to early estimations !! Here are videos showing victims of the brutal and inhuman crackdown in Syria in this Friday.
The video blow shows the dead body of 11 years boy in Homs allegedly killed by the security forces. The boy’s name is Iham El Ahmed. “Extremely graphic”
This video from Hama shows a protester killed allegedly by the the security forces. He was shot in his head and was being transferred in a pick up. His name was Mosaad El-Rashony.
This video below does not show a martyr but rather badly injured protester in Hama “Graphic”
Here is another injured in Adlib.
There are tons and tons of videos showing horrible scenes from Friday May 20th. It seems that Idlib had the highest score in casualties today unfortunately.
Dorothy Parvaz has returned back to Doha from Tehran at last after Damascus and Tehran’s denials “how both countries feel now in front of the world as they turned to be liars !!". Dorothy Parvaz shared horrific account of what she experienced in Syria , she was not tortured but she was kept in place where Syrians are tortured.
There are lots of rumors about El Assads that remind me with the Mubaraks prior February 11,2011. The strongest rumor is the one about Maher El Assad slapping and pulling the hair of Asama El Assad , the first lady of Syria and that Asama El Assad fled the country to London with her kids with the help of the British Ambassador !?
There is another fresh rumor that Ramy Makhlouf is withdrawing billions of dollars from Lebanese banks , of course if this rumor is true and billions of dollars are being withdrawn from banks like that in Lebanon can bring down the Lebanese economy.
Did not I tell that it is a déjà vu from what we saw in Egypt with the Mubaraks !?
Now our dear Syrian brothers and sisters have a request from the people of Egypt , they want to kick out the current Syrian ambassador from Cairo. The current Syrian ambassador in Cairo already is the husband of Bashar El-Assad’s cousin and if you were following the progress of the protests at the embassy. Today I saw some Syrian activist at Tahrir square speaking at the podium attacking El Assad regime and calling the protesters in Egypt to support the Syrian revolution. We do support the Syrian revolution.
