Nearly 40 killed in Syria protests

At least 38 protesters were killed by security forces during massive demonstrations on Friday across Syria, in one of the bloodiest days since pro-democracy protests erupted in mid-March, witnesses and activists said.

The toll has been steadily rising throughout the day, according to the sources in Nicosia, with early reports speaking of at least 15 dead and that figure more than doubling by the late afternoon.

Dozens of people were also wounded when security forces opened fire with live rounds to disperse protesters who took to the streets in several cities in response to calls for "Good Friday" rallies, they said.

At least 14 people were killed in the town of Ezreh, in the southern province of Daraa, epicentre of pro-reform and anti-regime protests that broke out in mid-March, the sources said.

One person was killed in Hirak, also in the Daraa region.

Nine people died in the northern Damascus suburb of Douma, the sources added.

And six people were also killed in the Damascus neighbourhoods of Barzeh, Harasta and Al-Maadamiyah.

Two people were also killed in the northern city of Hama, site of a government-sponsored massacre of Islamists in 1982, and two others perished in the main Syrian port city of Latakia, while four died in central Homs.

Earlier other human rights activists spoke of several people killed and wounded in Homs, as well as in the Damascus neighbourhoods of Al-Maadamiyah, Zamalkah and Kabun.

The state news agency Sana reported that security forces "intervened" and fired tear gas and water cannon "to prevent clashes between protesters and citizens and protect public property."

"There were some wounded in these confrontations," which Sana said took place in Harasta and Hajar Asswad near Damascus, as well as in Hama and Hasaka in the northeast.

Thousands of protesters swarmed the mainly Kurdish city of Qamishli in northeastern Syria, while demonstrations also shook Banias in the north and Daraa.

The protests come despite decrees on Thursday by President Bashar al-Assad scrapping nearly five decades of draconian emergency rule and abolishing state security courts that operated outside the normal judicial system to try people seen challenging the regime. --

yes it is,and the silence of the forum is deafening :

Syria experiences 'Good Friday massacre'

Syria’s security forces stand accused of carrying out a “Good Friday massacre” of more than 50 protesters on one of the bloodiest days yet in the five-week uprising against President Bashar al-Assad.

Across the country, protesters spilling out of mosques were met with live ammunition, sometimes within minutes of Friday prayers ending.

By dusk, there were fatalities reported from nine separate demonstrations. Up to 54 people were killed, according to a Daily Telegraph tally of reports by Syrian activists, witnesses and doctors.

Even by the blood-soaked standards of the repression that has characterised the Syrian uprising - at least 220 people have died since protests first began on March 18th - this was killing on a different order of magnitude.

A four-year-old girl was reportedly among the victims, shot in the head by a sniper according to opposition activists.

“What today proves beyond question is that Syria is the most repressive regime in the Middle East and Assad is the worst dictator,” one activist said. “The people marched peacefully and they were shot in their scores. It is a massacre, a Good Friday Massacre, and a war crime.”

The same is happening in Bahrain. They are also arresting doctors and nurses, taking doctors away from operating.
