Report: Dozens found executed in Syria, opposition group says

  • 86+ the number of people reportedly killed in Syria on Sunday, according to an estimate from the opposition Revolution Leadership Council, which suggests they have found 98 bodies lying in the streets and another 86 people “summarily executed.” “Jdeidet al Fadel was militarily a lost cause from day one because it was surrounded by the army from every direction. There are almost no wounded because they were shot on the spot,” council spokesperson Jamal al Golani said regarding the violence in the Damascus suburb. The numbers have not been independently verified by a third-party source (and may be higher than 250, according to a recent update). source

There is no council, it’s an illusion. … They are trying to build an autocratic rule inside the council. There is no group work. Everyone is working by himself and the whole council has not met once.
Syrian dissident Kamal al-Labwani • Discussing why he and another man left the Syrian National Council, the lead opposition group against the Assad regime. The council has long been fraught with infighting, of which this is yet another example. By the way, al-Labwani is a lifer at this: He was jailed in 2005 for his fight against the Assad regime and joined the council in November.

Syraian opposition leaders hold public meeting in Damascus: This is a big deal; even as Assad’s grip remains tight on the country, the fact that a meeting like this can even take place is a major sign of progress in a country that banned public gatherings for decades. It was not without strife, though, as some groups — like the Muslim Brotherhood — weren’t invited, leading to criticism that it was a “publicity stunt.”
