US and Canada Impose New Sanctions on the Regime

Farah News Online: The US Treasury imposed new sanctions on the Assad regime as it prohibited American citizens from dealing with public radio and television stations in Syria. According to the treasury, the public media committee supports the oppression of the civilians and works as a government propaganda arm to legitimate security and military crackdown. Meanwhile, Canada closed its Embassy in Damascus and prohibited all dealings with the Central Bank of Syria and seven ministers in the current Syrian government. Canada also banned all financial dealings with residents of Syria or delegates.
 Assad’s forces bombed an oil pipeline in the city of Quriya in the province of Deir Azzour, signalling its intention to invade the city soon. Assad’s forces usually commit such false-flag operations and accuse the revolutionaries to legitimise its invasions. The explosion resulted in pools of crude oil covering more than 2.5 miles of land and suffocating the city with black clouds. The explosion was accompanied by a deployment of armoured units in nearby villages and the arrival of dozens of tanks.
 Assad’s forces killed at least 15 today, as the security campaign continued on the suburbs of Damascus, the neighbourhoods of Homs, and several cities nearby, while the military crackdown continued against the province of Daraa. Meanwhile, inside sources have confirmed that the regime is targeting the cities of the province of Idlib after suppressing the revolutionary movements in the cities of Rastan, Qasir, and Houleh.
