Syria rebels mock the leaflets of Assad regime

Syrian helicopters have dropped leaflets over the northern city of Aleppo urging residents not to shelter rebels and warning the Free Syrian Army it had one last chance to surrender.

Some of the leaflets dropped late Saturday, in what rebels and residents said was a first, were designed as official-looking checkpoint passes for supporters of the rebels wishing to surrender.

“The holder of this pass is allowed to cross security forces checkpoints to surrender. The holder of this pass will be well treated and reunited with his family after verifications are conducted,” the leaflet read.

Other more basic leaflets printed on pink or white paper urged the rebels to put down their weapons.

“Your last chance to stay alive is to give up your weapons because there is nothing you can do against the Syrian army. Don’t miss that opportunity, go back to your family and stop fueling hatred around you,” one said.

“Honourable citizens, don’t turn your homes into places for armed terrorist gangs and don’t assist them in killing the people of your country,” read another leaflet collected by an AFP reporter near Bab al-Hadid in central Aleppo.

The leaflets were met by the disbelief and laughter of the rebels who picked them off the streets.

“I can’t believe how disconnected from reality they are. Bashar al-Assad, what a stupid man. He probably thinks all the people in Syria are as stupid as he is,” said Abdallah, a Free Syrian Army fighter.

Two hours after the leaflets were dropped, helicopters were back in the sky and opened fire on several central neighbourhoods.

Rebels control the ground in large parts of Aleppo but continue to be harassed by tank shelling, air raids and sniper fire.

Civilians and rebels alike fear a major offensive by the Syrian army in a bid to reconquer the country’s commercial capital.

        Just like you changed your name to: KOUBLA. However on another note the leaflets dropping demonstrate ass assad acts of desperation.

         The regime doesn’t NEED to be attacked, it is ‘committing suicide’.  Just be ‘patient’ and it will be gone.

    His friends are Sunnis, Druze, Christians and Kurds. “This is how it was meant to be,” Amer said. He gets angry with the media’s obsession, as he calls it, with a sectarian civil war in Syria:
    “Right now, there is no civil war in Syria. There is a war between a military regime that is slaughtering us and a people who are being slaughtered. The security people and the army come from all sects in Syria and so do the people. We’re fed up of people telling us this is a civil war.”
    But he acknowledges that it is now war. He blames the regime for not listening to their first, modest requests and for militarising the uprising.
    Amer has his parents’ permission to return to Syria, despite the possibility that his father might be arrested again. “I am definitely ready to die”, he said. “I and my friends and many of the Syrian people are prepared to risk death just to see Assad go. Definitely, definitely it’s worth dying for.”

    He was 28 years old.
    In Damascus, hundreds of his friends demonstrated in the streets in his memory. Bassel was a Christian and his local priest wanted to give him a proper funeral service in the church but was prevented from doing so by the authorities, so the mourners gathered outside the church instead.
    “At his funeral, the ones who prayed for him were from different religions and it didn’t matter if you prayed in a mosque or in a church for him,” Mireille said.
    “It was so touching to see Syria in this way because this is what they are dying for – they are dying for a better Syria and not for country shredded into parts and religions. And it was sad that he couldn’t have a proper funeral. Bassel deserved more than this,” she added.
