Ein Deserteur der syrischen Armee berichtet, was er in De’ra gesehen hat und welche Befehle ihnen gegeben wurden.
“As soon as we got there, the officers told us not to shoot at the men carrying guns. They said they [the gunmen] were with us. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. It had all been lies.”
In the month they were stationed there, neither Wasid nor any of his colleagues saw any demonstrators with weapons in Deraa or the nearby town of Izraa.
And instead of confronting armed insurgents, the unit was given orders to shoot protesters.
“I could not believe what I was hearing – to leave alone the people carrying guns. It shocked me,” he said. “We are soldiers and soldiers do not shoot at civilians.”
Und waehrend ueberall in Syrien auf Unbewffnete geschossen, misshandelt und gefoltert wird, begeben sich die Vertreter des “Westens” ganz gemuetlich zum Plausch beim Praesidenten und erklaeren:
Meeting U.S. Congressman Dennis Kucinich and the accompanying delegation in the morning and holding another meeting with British Conservative Party MP Brooks Newmark, President al-Assad reviewed the recent events taking place in Syria and the advanced steps achieved in the comprehensive reform program.
