Gunmen Attack Bus in Damascus, Kill All Passengers


DAMASCUS – The so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA) terrorists killed all the civilian passengers of a bus in a mortar attack in Southern Damascus.

The terrorists targeted the bus packed with civilians, including women and children in al-Salasin street of al-Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp in Southern Damascus, killing all passengers onboard. 

Al-Yarmouk camp has been the target of terrorist mortar attacks since last night. 

The terrorists killed 18 civilians and injured 70 others in their attacks on al-Yarmouk camp on Sunday night. 

On Sunday, the FSA terrorists also killed 60 citizens, including women and children, in the Northwestern Idlib Province as it started a fresh round of violence against the defenseless people. 

Ten women and ten children were among the victims of the massacre conducted by the FSA elements in the Harem City, Idlib Province. 

The terrorist FSA has already targeted Harem’s citizens several times. 

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011 with organized attacks by well-armed gangs against Syrian police forces and border guards being reported across the country. 

Hundreds of people, including members of the security forces, have been killed, when some protest rallies turned into armed clashes. 

The government blames outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups for the deaths, stressing that the unrest is being orchestrated from abroad. 

In October 2011, calm was eventually restored in the Arab state after President Assad started a reform initiative in the country, but Israel, the US and its Arab allies are seeking hard to bring the country into chaos through any possible means. Tel Aviv, Washington and some Arab capitals have been staging various plots in the hope of increasing unrests in Syria. 

The US daily, Washington Post, reported in May that the Syrian rebels and terrorist groups battling the President Bashar al-Assad’s government have received significantly more and better weapons in recent weeks, a crime paid for by the Persian Gulf Arab states and coordinated by the United States. 

The newspaper, quoting opposition activists and US and foreign officials, reported that Obama administration officials emphasized the administration has expanded contacts with opposition military forces to provide the Persian Gulf nations with assessments of rebel credibility and command-and-control infrastructure.
