At least 7 protesters killed by Syrian army in Tall Kalakh

At least seven people were killed on Sunday as the Syrian army pounded the town of Tall Kalakh, near the borders with Lebanon, an activist told AFP on condition of anonymity.

“At least seven people, including two women, were killed by security forces who are indiscriminately shelling four districts in the town,” the activist said on the telephone, quoting witnesses.

He said there were probably more casualties but that so far the names of the seven who were killed had been confirmed.

The toll included three people reported to have been killed in Tall Kalakh earlier by a local resident who told AFP the army had deployed heavily in the town and that there were many injured who could not be evacuated.

Hundreds of people have fled Tall Kalakh in recent days amid a brutal crackdown by authorities bidding to crush an unprecedented revolt against the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

          We’ve all been negatively affected by Syria’s involvement in Lebanon at one point or another..the main point is that these people are trying to get rid of the regime that treated our country like crap..why not support these people and we can have a GOOD neighbor instead? 

          Never in my life have I seen such backwardness in our society today. Homsi jokes are great, and we hate Bashar Al Assad, but you’re going to wish an entire popular their death just because they have their reasons. That’s just stupid.  I’m involvement in a Palestine group in my university, but I dont wish the deaths of innocent Israeli civilians, even though their military bombed Lebanon into a big empty lot.

            i cannot agree with you more.

            what you are saying is Gold.

            if everyone becomes a monster in retaliation to injustice he/she has experienced, the downfall of humanity is not far at all….if it hasn’t begun already.
