Interview with president Bashar Al-Assad - The Sunday Times

More than a year since the rebels started fighting the government of President Bashar Al-Assad, 66 more people were killed last Wednesday. IN Damascus alone, 17 civilians were caught between fires in the suburbs of Damascus and Douma. 24 more people were reportedly killed in Hama while there are 7 more in Daraa. The series of fighting between the protesters and the Syrian police keeps the number of casualties higher in almost all cities in Syria.

Some of the safer cities like Homs became a refuge for the civilian however they cannot leave the place in fear of being a casualty if ever caught on fire. The International Committee of the Red Cross and the Syrian Arab Crescent are just among the two bravest group giving assistance to the affected citizens of the said country.

Right now, international media access to Syria is limited yet a report gathered shows that since the peace talks resumed and the cease-fire was announced last April, the conflict between the government and the terrorists has gotten worst causing more deaths.

The crackdown of anti-government protests that was initiated by the regime of President Bashar Al-Assad heightens the revolutions and protests causing more wars and fighting between the two groups. As of now, a record of 13,000 people has been believed to die of this cause.
