Syrian revolution 2011: Death toll rose to 683

Syrian revolution 2011 the Facebook group which has emerged as the organizing force behind the demonstrations reported that 683 protesters have been killed so far by the Syrian security forces since the unrest started .

The protests started on March 15 in the southern Syrian town of Daraa and had since spread to most of the Syrian cities

This Friday …the day of defiance witnessed huge protests in Homs, Hama, Damascus , Latakia and several other towns. At lease 30 protesters were killed today according to rights organizations .

Protest in Homs against the Syrian regime on Friday May 6, 2011. The large banner reads. The Syrian security forces are acting like gangsters and should be held accountable

President Bashar al-Assad of Syria is increasingly relying on his Alawite power base to crush pro-democracy protests that have posed the boldest challenge to the Assad family’s 41 years of rule over Syria.

Assad, an Alawite, sent army and secret police units dominated by officers from the same minority sect, an offshoot of Shi’ite Islam, into mainly Sunni urban centers to crush demonstrations calling for his removal.

Their use of tanks to shell the city of Daraa last week, storming of mosques and attacks on unarmed civilians — as reported by residents and activists — have raised the stakes.

    The Syrian need to smarten up, they are going back home after manifestations to be later picked up by the moukhabarat, this how Iran did silence the revolution, in order to succeed the Syrian need to occupy the streets in thousands like the Lebanese and the Egyptians ,or in millions, no tanks can march on millions, let them arm themselves with Molotov,going back home after the manifestations and waiting for Friday is pure stupidity. Damascus is not revolting so another city like Aleppo should be the target

    You
    know a regime is really corrupt when it uses snipers
    to fire on mourners in a funeral. That’s about as bad as it gets.

    one syrian protester who comes out on the street against the ruthless dictator and his armies accompanied with tanks and snipers as well as the moukhabarat is equal to more than 10,000 protesters that came out in egypt, Tunis, yamen or lebanon.

      No Marroush, all these people who protested are equal. Don’t forget the brutal police that ran people over with trucks in Egypt, the secret service in Tunis, or the brutal army in Yemen.

    As a Lebanese, I am tired of hearing about what is happening in Syria with every single detail (one is dead here, 5 are dead there, this guy was arrested, etc….). This is YALIBNAN site it is not YASOURIYA site. However, I should mention that the best comment from a Lebanese politician that I heard on the vents in Syria was from my hero and ex-prime ministre, Fouad Saniora, who said: “We wish the Syrians what they wish for themselves”, i.e. FREEDOM and DEMOCRACY.
