KUWAIT, April 1 (KUNA) -- The death toll of attacks by Syrian regular
forces on civilians on Sunday rose to 70, including five children and three
women who were killed in Deir Az-Zour, Homs, Hama, Idleb, Daraa, Aleppo, and
countryside of Damascus.
Local Coordination Committees said that the city of Alkorah in Deir Az-Zour
has witnessed heavy displacements due to continuous "massacres and shelling"
by regime's forces for three days in row, noting that military reinforcements
were still active in the city causing a state of frenzy among local residents
in fear of other massacres.
In Hama, security forces raided Hai Kazo using heavy and random fire
resulting in the injury of five individuals, followed by arrest campaigns to
15 others, added committees.
It noted that a number of towns are still under heavy shelling and random
firing to suppress demonstrations that come out in most cities to demand
freedom and the downfall of the regime.
On the other hand, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu on Sunday said
in a press conference, following the "Friends of Syria" conference, that the
international community will not allow Syrian president to miss another
opportunity, stressing that the current efforts to end the conflict in Syria
were the final chance for the Syrian regime. (pickup previous)
