‪#‎Important‬ ‪#‎Our_Waar_Is_Burning‬

For the umpteenth time, values crumble and humanity slogans (adopted) by the international community grow bare, especially the Western countries, America and their Arab allies, as they show the deepest concern and shed tears that serve their schemes about the recent events in Kobani, known as (Ain Al-Arab), and we all support any initiative concerned with the safety of civilians, while Assad’s war machine destroys entire cities and displaces thousands of civilians in the rest of the Syrian provinces while the international community turns a blind eye.

The newest victims of this abhorrent duality of self-interest are the civilians living in the Homsi besieged neighborhood of Waar. The only area that represent the revolution icon in the decimated city of Homs, and the last stronghold of the Syrian rebels and the civilians who fled the brutality of the Assad regime.

The neighborhood contains more than 200,000 displaced civilians who escaped for their lives from other parts of the city, but it has become the daily target of countless missiles, all sorts of artillery, and explosive cylinders fired by the Assad forces and his sectarian militias commanded by the diabolic Iranian regime, killing many civilians, mostly women and children.
All this comes in the light of the terrible silence of the international community and the countries so-called Friends of Syria, noting that residents of the neighborhood and the rebels did not hesitate in providing peaceful solutions that protect the neighborhood and its residents, the solutions which have always been defused by Assad loyalists and his security officials who want to make a Holocaust and throw each and everyone calls for freedom and a decent life or calls to overthrow the barbaric Assad regime in it.
For that, we raise our voices and launch the campaign‪#‎Our_Waar_Is_Burning‬ in hope we find a receptive ear. We are on the eve of a brutal Holocaust that alarms a large social and humanitarian catastrophe, it’s highest price will be paid by the civilians of the neighborhood.

A reasonable person will realize that pro-regime areas will not be safe of the consequences of this fire, especially when they are the ones who ignited the flames of it and were the advocates of the annihilation of every civilian in the neighborhood, as they previously did in the other besieged areas of Homs, the same besieged areas that was destroyed completely while the whole world was watching silently.
We call upon all international organizations to show responsibility towards this neighborhood and find an effective mechanism in order to protect civilians from the genocidal policy pursued by Assad forces and his sectarian militias before it is too late.

Final report of the #Chemical_Massacre in Eastern and Western Ghouta’s towns #Syria

Chemical weaponry targeting civilians in Eastern and Western ALGhouta’s towns, leading to massive massacre – Wednesday, 21/8/2013 [Damascus province]
[Final report composed for Wednesday, 21/8/2013]

— Syrian Revolution General Commission was able to document 646 martyrs, amongst them 33 women and 22 children, killed in the chemical weaponry massacre committed by the regime. We do note though that the death toll is much higher and we are still working on documenting the names and photos of the martyrs. This report will be updated further as information floods in from medical points and activists regarding the exact death toll.


At around 2:45 A.M in the early morning of Wednesday, the regime’s forces began heavily bombarding several areas in Eastern Al Ghouta using rocket with warheads; the bombardment specifically targeted the following areas:
1] Al Zainia area in Ein Turma town
2] area behind Najeeb station near Zamallaka town
3] area begind Krash factory in Jobar district

Tens of rockets with chemical warheads targeted the areas as the mortar bombardment did not stop until sunrise, when warplanes then launched 20 airstrikes.

Hundreds of civilians then began flooding to makeshift hospitals across the Eastern towns of Al Ghouta, noting that even the medical team got affected by the gases due to the lack of masks.
Afterwards, activists reported that huge regime reinforcements were seen on Damascus-Homs railway and on Al Adaqi railway as the regime’s forces also cut off the Damascus-Qunaitera railway near Sehnaya town. More than 15 tanks were spotted near Al Abbaseyyeen sqaure, heading towards Al Abbaseyyeen garages; a number anti-aircrafts and Shabiha (thugs) buses/vehicles were spotted too.


In Western AL Ghouta, at 5:15 A.M. in the early morning of Wednesday, Mua’dameyet Al Sham town got targeted by more than 17 rockets with chemical warheads as well as by tens of tank shelling, leading to the martyrdom of tens of civilians, most of whom are women and children. Hundreds of civilians have been exposed by the chemical weaponry.
Regime has not stopped at that extent, but also launched tens of airstrikes after sunrise, leading to the fall of tens of casualties.

Makeshift hospital documented the martyrdom of 103 civilians, amongst them 15 children and 20 women and to the chemical exposure of 625 other civilians suffering from severe suffocation. Up to 34 houses were completely destroyed and up to 25 other houses were partially damaged.
The source of the bombardment was from the 4th Division’s base and from Military Al Mazzeh airport. Intense clashes were ongoing on all of Zamallaka’s town, specially the eastern one and the western one.

Regime’s forces have also cut off Damascus-Qunaitera railway; a huge military convoy was spotted coming from the revolutionary guard’s base; the convoy included 10 vehicles, armoured tanks, artillery, and tens of soldiers.

Gases fired on Al Atebeh town in #Damascus’s suburbs – 19/3/2013 Cases of suffocation reported

Gases fired on Al Atebeh town in #Damascus’s suburbs – 19/3/2013
Cases of suffocation reported

Yesterday, the Free Syrian Army liberated Battalion 16 located between Al Atebeh and Al Dumair and bravely fought back the regime’s forces’ attempts to invade the area. Since the liberation, the regime’s forces have been hammering the city with shells and rockets since yesterday as more than 100 shells/rockets fell on Al Atebeh town, forcing up to 15,000 residents and displaced civilians from nearby towns (about 90% of the people in the town) to flee the area and seek refuge in nearby towns. Many sought refuge in schools as well, such as this school in Al Nashabyeh, in which many displaced civilians sought refuge in; it got targeted by airstrikes yesterday too, deliberately attempting to harm and kill the women and children inside. Consequently, many children got wounded.

–School in Al Nashabyeh bombarded:

Today, the regime’s forces stationed in the 3rd division and in other bases have been heavily bombarding Al Atebeh town using artillery shells and rockets with heads containing toxic materials (still unknown yet) that caused many cases of suffocation amongst civilians. Reports say there are martyrs but nothing has been confirmed yet. More details must be reported soon, but videos have been uploaded, showing some of the cases of suffocation and other symptoms, such as extreme difficulty in breathing and very low blood pressure.

#Syria #Homs #Qusair: Picture of the bombs that was dropped by Sukhoi jets and targeted the city of Qusair today

#Syria #Homs #Qusair:
Picture of the bombs that was dropped by Sukhoi jets and targeted the city of Qusair today, leading to the fall of many martyrs and a large number of injured and widespread destruction.
These bombs are the same as mass destruction weapons or what is known as barrels where it was used earlier, but with less weight (250-500 kg) and were dropped by helicopters for some time, before regime got out of these barrels, and turn into the bombardment with locally manufactured Bombs.

Difference is that this is a very heavy bombs intended for Jet fighters, where it’s installed on the wings of the warplane and is dropped two by two!!

These bombs are provided with umbrellas to reduce speed and adjust its course, because of the sheer weight of which that could exceed 1000 kg per bomb.

These bombs have a big margin of error, and are used to achieve the greatest destruction possible without the presence of specific targets.

Assad army is using these bombs against unarmed civilians to kill the largest possible number of the Syrian people and to achieve the greatest destruction possible .

English-language sources contain pictures illustrative of the types of bombs and sizes:

كتب صديق لي تحت الحصار….
الكثيرون يتعبون .. و لا تقوى قلوبهم على المتابعة …
يملّون … وتضيق أرواحهم بالمكابدة …
يسطرون على صفحات القلوب المتعبة .. يأسهم .. وندمهم 
ظنوا أن الثورة حالة قيمية ترقى للمثالية … لا أخطاء غيها و لا حظوظ نفس بشرية !!
لم يقرأوا اقتتال الصحابة جيداً .. و لم يفهموا على الحقيقة .. تعقيد هذه النفس
لم يقرأوا قول الله تعالى خلق الإنسان هلوعا .. 
يريدون نفوساً نظيفة .. ودائماً !! وثورة نظيفة .. و دائماً 
لا يراعون تغير النفوس بتغير الضعوط .. وليست كل القلوب في التلقي واحدة ..
الثورة ليست ولن تكون .. انتقال نظيف شريف نقي تقي من حال لحال 
ونحن لسنا كذلك .. 
لكن هذا لا يورث في القلوب المؤمنة الندم .. لإن انتظار سيادة الطهارة و التصفية و التربية يعني إبقاء سيف القهر و الذل الذي يمنع (بقرار) هذه السيادة 
كان المتعب .. يتعب من حوله من معارفه .. صار عنده فيسبوك !!!
وصاريتعب من يقرأ له من البعض .. لو سمحتم اتعبوا لوحدكم .. لا نريد أن نيأس معكم ..
قلوبنا مليئة بالرضا على ماكان .. و لا و الله لسنا نادمين .. ولن نستكين 
وماكانت الثورة في سورية لتكون أفضل مما كانت .. و لو انتظرنا مثاليتكم الفارغة 
لعشنا ومتنا .. و مات أولادنا .. نأكل و نشرب .. أذلاء .. لا نجرؤ على صيحة التكبير !!

Catastrophic humanitarian conditions in Old #Homs’s districts after 8 months of the ongoing siege

Catastrophic humanitarian conditions in Old #Homs‘s districts after 8 months of the ongoing siege 
[Report composed on 11/2/2013]

Complete destruction in al-Qusour, Homs.

In a series of videos released by activists today, women, children, wounded civilians and Free Syrian Army soldiers are seen, agonizing under conditions intolerable for humans. Below, a description of each video was composed in order to portray what life has been like for the besieged civilians within suffering from famine and a bitter cold weather with the lack sanitary water, electricity, diesel, and a decent asylum.

In this video, two minors are interviewed as their mother and siblings are seen in a garden, picking up inedible grass in order to add to the few kilo grams of lentils and rice they own since the children suffer from malnutrition because of the dearth in vegetables, fruits, and meat.
The second child interviewed exhibits so much skillfulness in cutting grass since he and his family have been depending on grass for a very long time [since nearly 8 months up until now]. This merely 12 year old child has been deprived from schooling and education and works daily in order to sustain his and his family’s basic needs. When asked what are the fruits and vegetables he wishes to taste again, he says:”I really miss eating bananas…And I also miss eating tomatoes and cucumbers. It has been so long since we have tasted any of those.”

Despite that the families’ agonies due to lack of food is unbearable, the distress and pain the wounded civilians and Free Syrian army soldiers endure is what is utterly harrowing. The lack of medicines and specialized doctors force the nurses and the medics inside the only makeshift hospital serving the whole area to perform treatments and operations that are inconsistent with the injury/injuries sustained by the patient, all due to the lack of resources or alternatives.

In this video, a Free Syrian Army soldier was interviewed. He was wounded 5 months ago while fighting the regime’s forces in Bab Sba’a district; a shell fell near his legs and led to the injury of both of them. His right leg was severely wounded and he lost his knee joint due to the impact of the shell. Because doctors were unable to perform a knee prosthesis surgery, which is the needed surgery according to the patient, doctors were only able to offer support to his joint-less leg by inserting external fixators. The patient says:”I suffer from constant pain and I am living on pain killers only.” When asked about the food in front of him, he says:”You see, this is what I have every day: one loaf of bread, some olive oil, and thyme. It’s my breakfast, lunch, and dinner.” He then adds:”I have been in bed, completely immobile, for 5 consecutive months now.”

The last of the videos is of another Free Syrian Army soldier wounded during clashes with the regime’s forces. His case is the severest of all. The regime’s forces in Al Qusour district shot him by a 12.5 mm sniper bullet in his leg [thigh area] that led to a severe injury and later on to inflammation; thus, he keeps a clothe underneath his thigh since the wound after the surgery [insertion of internal fixators] he underwent keeps excreting fuss. His medical condition is the worst due to his suffering of osteoporosis because of the lack of nutritious food vital to allow his wounds to heal and for full recovery. While he was once readjusting his sitting on bed, his leg broke and is now completely immobile as well, leading to his suffering of bed sores too. He says:”I’m malnourished and I have no food except some lentils and rice. There is no nutrient intake. Now I have osteoporosis.” He adds:”All of us [people trapped in Old Homs districts] depend on wells for drinking water, but it is not sanitary and I am very ill because of the complications it is causing to my digestive system.” He then says:”The Red Crescent visited us once only. They smiled to me and did not even bother to raise the quilt and check my injuries or at least offer to give us medicines. They simply smiled, just like how the whole world has been smiling to us without offering any aid.”

The conditions in this report are only a fraction of what is real on ground. And psychological disturbances amongst children and women are very common and widespread amongst the civilians trapped within, too. The siege continues, and the world continues to ignore their sufferance. The videos in this report and the agony of these humans is not for sympathy but for an immediate wake up call to the world so it forces the atrocious Assad regime to end the siege and allow free and immediate access to the wounded civilians/FSA soldiers to doctors and humanitarian organizations to offer the needed treatment for them all.
