At least 36 people were killed today across Syria, including 11 civilians near a roadblock near Homs. A number of Syrian troops were also reported killed in an attack by defectors.
The latest round of violence comes a day after Syrian officials confirmed agreeing to a plan to remove their military from major protest cities, and while there was some confusion to that effect earlier today, officials from the Arab League finally confirmed Syria had agreed to it.
The question now is how soon will President Bashar Assad implement the promised changes, including releasing all political prisoners captured since February. The Arab League is on them to make the transition more or less immediate.
Once the regime does start moving forward with reforms, the Arab League promised that it would sponsor talks with the opposition, something the government has hoped would calm down the protests but has been unable to get off the ground without credible reforms.
One thought on “At Least 36 Killed Across Syria”
Where does the affirmation: "At least 36 people were killed across Syria today…" come from?? I followed your link, MC, which merely affirms it too.
Mr. Ditz, should you not show some journalistic integrity by at least putting the adjective alleged before regurgitating the mass of disinformation permeating the air waves? Did you not learn a damn thing from the precedents in Libya, Iraq, Panama, Nicaragua, all the way back to Vietnam and the Gulf of Tonkin??.
You have become part and parcel of the propaganda dissemination of the corporate press. Your posts are in stark contrast with the thoughtful, erudite columns of Justin Raimondo, Uri Avnery and the many others who have elevated antiwar way above those palace musicians in the press that serve the agenda of empire. You have almost become a mouthpiece for the Obama-Clinton foreign policy!
