100,000 at Syria protester funerals: rights group

Share:

More than 100,000 people turned out on Saturday for the funerals of dozens of protesters killed by Syrian security forces in the city of Hama, a rights group said.

“More than 100,000 people started to take part in the funerals” of at least 53 people killed during anti-regime protests on Friday across Syria, all but five of them in Hama, said Syrian Observatory for Human Rights head Rami Abdel Rahman.

Two residents of Hama said as many as 150,000 mourners joined the funeral procession, from which security forces stayed away.

One of the residents said Internet access was cut off in Hama.

Abdel Rahman said security forces shot dead 48 people in Hama, where a crowd of more than 50,000 gathered for the city’s biggest rally since the mid-March outbreak across Syria of a revolt against President Bashar al-Assad.

In Homs, a city 40 kilometres (25 miles) south of Hama, two people were killed and another two in nearby Rastan, said Abdel Rahman, head of the London-based Observatory. One person was also killed in Idleb, northwest Syria, he said.

Abdel Rahman also reported that fresh clashes erupted in Jisrash Shughur, 30 kilometres (19 miles) southwest of Idlib, on Saturday as security forces tried to disperse a column of protesters marching through the town.

However, he did not report any immediate casualties.

Rights groups say more than 1,100 civilians have been killed and at least 10,000 arrested in the brutal crackdown since the protests began.

      Don’t worry he’ll be eating plenty of his own shit in prison soon because that’s all he’ll be getting. Bloody bastard son of a bastard son of a dog.
       
      Retribution will be sweet. I long for the day I’ will see this dog and his henchmen hanging from lamp posts lynched and humiliated. They have inflicted too much suffering on the people of Syria and Lebanon to be left alone to live comfortable lives in exile.
       
      Nothing will please me more than to see every baathist scum bags minced to pieces after enduring month of excruciating torture.
       
      I say it is imperative for every Lebanese person to assist the Syrian people in their uprising. We should not hold back on spending freely to supply them with arms, give them refuge and aide them in whatever way possible to help them rid themselves of this oppression.
       
      This uprising is turning out to be long and painful but it will bear fruit in the end.
