Russia and China Protect the Regime With A Veto

Farah News Online: Russia and China vetoed the UNSC draft resolution put forth by the Arab League to settle the Syrian issue by handing over Bashar’s authorities to his Vice-President. The veto was met with condemnations and criticisms as the US Ambassador to the UN said that her country is revolted by Russia and China’s stance and that the UNSC has fell captive to their narrow interests for over a month. The Ambassador added that Russia and China cannot be forgiven for the failure of today’s attempt, and that they continue to bargain people’s lives for the support of the tyrant.
 
Tunisia decided to withdraw its recognition of the Assad regime and expel the Syrian Ambassador in light of the Homs massacre. Meanwhile, demonstrators broke into the Syrian embassy building in Libya, Egypt, Kuwait,Germany, and Australia  and replaced the Syrian flag with the Syrian Revolution flag. Syrian embassies in Algeria, Greece, and the Consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia were also targeted with demonstrations.
 
Yesterday’s massacre in Homs led to at least 337 deaths and more than 1300 critical injuries as no medical supplies are allowed into the city. According to residents in Alawite neighbourhoods, the regime withdrew all protection and checkpoints from their areas to allow any party to attack their residential areas. Many suspect a false-flag operation soon.
 
In the suburbs of Damascus, the Fourth Regiment attempted to invade Zabadani through the Takiyya road with at least 70 armoured units, and from the Eastern mountain side with 20 tanks and two helicopter gunships amidst heavy shelling. Many houses were wrecked and burnt from the bombardment triggering a mass evacuation. Electricity, water, and communication were cut off the city of Zabadani, while all roads to the city and all food supplies were blocked. Toxic material was allegedly dumped in the city’s water stream. In Daraya, more than seventeen were killed as the regime launched a vicious attack on the demonstrators, while clashes continued in Rastan in Homs and in Jabal Zawiya in Idlib.
