Twenty-three Syrians were killed by regime forces'
fire on Tuesday, including one child and three women in Idleb, Daraa, Homs,
Hama, Damascus, and outskirts of Damascus.
The Syrian opposition Local Coordination Committees (LCC) said in a
statement that regime forces launched a violent shelling and heavy gunfire on
number of cities such as Idleb, Hama, Damascus, outskirts of Damascus, Regga,
Homs, Daraa, and Deir Al-Zour, against anti-government demonstrations that
come out form those towns demanding the overthrow of current Syrian government.
The demonstrations were met with forces' attack, which resulted in death
and injury of several people, as well as a major displacement movement toward
LCC noted that security forces, in conjunction with their military
escalation, launched raid and arrest campaigns in number of cities after
storming them, which led to the capture of tens of demonstrators amid heavy
security deployment that was backed by military armored vehicles.
Also, it pointed out that bodies of three ladies, including an elderly one,
were found in Bayada district. They were killed by security forces.
