Damascus rejected the version and says that the authors were the opponents.
The terror and death suffered by Syrian civilians seems to have no limit in the middle of the lack of a unanimous international response. The regime of Bashar al-Asad and the opposition accused yesterday of killing at least 47 civilians, mostly women and children, on Sunday night in a suburb of the beaten rebel stronghold of Homs, while once again consisted division the Security Council of the UN and the lack of progress in the mediation of Kofi Annan. The mediator demanded arrest and death of civilians, while the opposition called for an urgent foreign military intervention. “The world must send a clear message that this is unacceptable,” he said in Turkey before meeting with Prime Minister Erdogan.
“The bodies of at least 26 children and 21 women were found in the Zeitun neighborhood of Karm and Adawiye after being killed by the shabiha [thugs of the regime], “he told AFP activist Hadi Abdullah. He and other opposition sources supported their allegations showing pictures of bodies of children and adults beheaded, stabbed or burned with, apparently, heating fuel.
According to Abdullah, a member of the General Committee of the Syrian Revolution, “members of the Army Free Free Sirius took the bodies to the Bab Sebaa [Homs]), more secure,” where they were photographed.
“Some victims, especially children, were beaten in the head with sharp objects. A girl was mutilated and some women were raped before being killed, “he said.
The regime, through its media, rejected the accusation and blamed “terrorist groups”-a term that refers to the opposition, of having “kidnapped citizens in Homs and of having murdered and shot to cause reactions international against Syria. ” The Information Minister Adnan Mahmud, also accused Saudi Arabia and Tasting of being “accomplices” of those bands. Also broadcast images of dead civilians, including several men with their hands tied behind his back on a street in Homs.
A propaganda war that accompanied the repression, and no independent media has the opportunity to counter by the relevant restrictions from Damascus to the international press.
After describing as “big lies” the government’s version, George Sabra, leader of the Syrian National Council (CNS), the opposition in exile who aspires to lead a transitional post-Asad, asked to reporters in Istanbul “international military intervention and Arab urgent, “and the establishment of a no-fly zone bombing and military apparatus of the regime of Al Asad.Burhan Ghaliun, president of CNS, estimated that the international community can not continue making empty promises.
