The death toll of the attacks by the regular
troops on popular protests across Syria on Saturday rose to twelve, the
opposition Local Coordination Committees (LCC) reported.
Three fatalities were relocated in each of Hama and Idleb cities, two in
each of Homs and Damascus countryside, and one in each of Latakia and Deir
Al-Zour, according to an LCC report reaching here from Syria.
The government forces attacked with mortar shells and heavy machine guns
the Tardin village on the Kurd Mounts on the outskirts of the western
Mediterranean port city of Latakia, killing at least one person; they also
shelled Al-Kasir, Al-Rastin and Al-Homaidia districts of Homs.
Members of a whole family were injured in Al-Kasir and a
yet-to-be-specified number of casualties fell in similar attacks on Eastern
and Western Meliha towns in Daraa Governorate, south Syria.
The regime forces beefed up their presence in Al-Atareb district of Daraa
with 50 armored personnel carriers and 30 vehicles carrying heavy machine
guns, the LCC statement said, noting that a huge bombing was heard in the
district where the government forces were tracking down dissident soldiers.
