Syria: 6 protesters killed in Hama, Reuters reported


Reuters reported that six protesters were killed in Hamah on Friday by gunfire from security forces

The city of Hama witnessed the largest massacre in Syria’s history . the Hama massacre occurred in February 1982, when the Syrian army, under the orders of the president of Syria Hafez al-Assad ( father of current president Bashar) , conducted a scorched earth policy against the town of Hama in order to quell a revolt by the Sunni Muslim community against the regime of al-Assad.

“We do not want to see another Hama massacre,” Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said late Sunday in a television interview, commenting on Assad’s failure to act immediately to make reforms.

“He says, ‘I will do it.’ But I am having a hard time understanding if he is being prevented from doing it or if he is hesitating,” Erdoğan said
