“We will take to the streets as happened in 2011” | Video shows settled-status members insulting regime officers and soldiers at gas station in Daraa al-Balad in southern Syria
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has obtained a video showing members, of those who struck reconciliation deals with the regime in Daraa governorate, insulting regime officers and soldiers at a gas station in Daraa al-Balad in the southern Syrian city of Daraa. This comes after setlled-status members were beaten by regime soldiers, while waiting in line to fuel up.
The video shows a group of young men telling regime officers and soldiers “Where is your commander, no one can beat us – I will destroy the station over your head”, in addition to insulting the regime using obscene terms. “We will take to the streets as happened in 2011”, the men added, referring to the start of a new revolution against the Syrian regime, similar to the outbreak of the Syrian revolution against the regime in March 2011.
This brings the number of attacks and assassination attempts in various forms and methods by detonating IEDs, landmines, booby-trapped vehicles and shootings from last June to date, to more than 733 attacks.
While the number of those who killed and died in the same period has risen to 482 persons, 135 of whom are civilians, including 12 women and 15 children, in addition to 213 regime soldiers, loyalists and collaborators with regime security services.
89 members of opposition factions were also killed, those who made “settlements and reconciliations” with the regime and became members of regime security services, including former leaders, and 23 members of Syrian militias affiliated to Lebanese “Hezbollah” and Iranian forces, in addition to 22 members of so-called “Fifth Corps”.
