Opposition activists said Syrian fighter planes stronghold neighborhoods on the outskirts on Sunday to continue air strikes on Sunni neighborhoods in the capital since an internationally mediated cease-fire went into effect ,They said a thick, black plumes of smoke rose on the sky when warplanes struck Zamalka ,Harasta and Arbeen suburbs, destroying building and causing a number of casualties .

The Harasta media office an opposition group said in a statement , that electricity, water and communications cut off and dozens injured in a hospital Harasta national were taken with the approach of the bombing.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says eight people were killed and many others wounded in the airstrike in Arbeen and two suburbs east of Damascus on Sunday. Another opposition group also reported fighting also resumed in the city of Aleppo and near a northern military base

"The regime does not respect the cease-fire, it is not shooting and there are no clashes but it has started shelling... What cease-fire? We can't trust the regime," said Abd Al-Jaber Al-Akaidi the head of the Free Syrian Army "The regime is perfidious, a cheater and a liar," he said.

Sunni neighborhoods played a major role in the uprising 19 months ago against the rule of President Bashar al-Assad belongs to alawite emanating from Shiites Amateur videos posted on YouTube appeared to support the claims of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights show fighter jets which they said were bombing the suburbs of Erbin and Harasta.

U.N.-Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi negotiated the truce, hoping to stem the killings during the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha had been a long shot from the start . Fighting dropped off in the first hours of the cease-fire Friday, but by the end of the day, activists said 151 people had been killed Friday, the start of the holiday, and more than 120 people on the second day, on par with previous daily casualty tolls.

The United Nations and activist groups place the death toll of the Syrian conflict between 20,000 and 30,000 people have been killed in the uprising against Assad has been going on for 18 months . An estimated 100,000 refugees mostly women and children, have sought refuge in Turkey since the start of the conflic in Syria are now housed in Turkish camps.

Meanwhile , UN rights chief Navi Pillay called on the world at the United Nations European headquarters in Geneva October 18, 2012 to prevent another slaughter like that of 8,000 Muslim men and boys were slaughtered by Bosnian Serb forces in the eastern Bosnian enclave of Srebrenica in July 1995 ,Srebrenica was the worst massacre happen on European since World War Two

My Opinion

I feel frustrated when I saw all the world witness the masscres done against Syrian people and didn't do any real action to stop it , clashes between two sides government and rebel has continued and now the truce has collapsed

last week U.N.-Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi negotiated the truce, hoping to stem the killings during the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha but Bashar Al Assad gaves his fighters planes order to bomb three suburbs east of Damascus while this neighborhoods mainly are inhabited by Sunni muslims and other minorities .

Sunni neighborhoods played a major role in the uprising 19 months ago against the rule of President Bashar al-Assad belongs to alawite emanating from Shiites so Al Assad want to take his revenge

Meanwhile , Syrian capital Damascus and Aleppo have witnessed other blasts this month have targeted military and security buildings during the war against al-Assad's security forces . Islamist groups and opposition rebels have claimed responsibility for prior attacks.
