The tragedy of Raml (or Palestinian Raml) has not stopped since yesterday. The neighbourhood was first built as a camp for Palestinians refugees after their major emigration in the 1940s (hence the name is related to them). Gradually it grew to become one of the largest neighborhoods in Lattakia containing a mixture of the poorest people in the city in an area that lacks for the basic urban services. This could be one other reason why people in that neighborhood were infuriated with the regime that nurtured corruption in the country. Demonstrations in the area never stopped since the beginning of the Syian Peaceful Uprising, taking place more than once a day, in addition to demonstrations in neighboring boroughs such as Skantouri, Qala’a, Slaibeh and Masbah Al-Shaab, and even in Kneinis which is far from the "opposition league" in the city.
Since dawn today, military forces completed its invasion and started randomly shooting in all the areas with intermittent sounds of explosions that did not even spare people who were trying to flee this war that the security forces had waged against these residential areas.
On the other hand, in Hawla (in Homs Suburbs) which had already witnessed military and security invasion one week ago, a similar campaign took place today where the invasion was accompanied by mass arrests of tens of young people many of whom were returned as crushed corpses from brutal torturing. Many women and children were killed inside their houses or on their doors from random gunfire. What’s new today is that the waves of arrests have extended to villages inhabitant by a Turkman and Alawite majority in Hawla which is of multi-sectarian and multi-racial nature.
All attempts of the regime forces to strike a city to weaken the demonstrations, are becoming a subject for bigger and growing number of demonstrations in other cities in solidarity with the affected cities, even the cities that are under military siege and spread of armed security forces, are challenge the fear and protesting with the activists who remained outside the regime’s prisons, or those who are newly joining the demonstrations. Today the demonstrations in Aleppo and its suburbs continued and rose since it started few days ago. Daraa’s villages and cities which are besieged since the launch of the first spark of the uprising continued demonstrating today. Homs which is divided by the military barricades, Hama which didn’t recovered yet after the invasion that started 15 days ago, Qamishli, Deir Ezzor, Damascus and it’s huge suburbs and Idlib that is witnessing military movements, all demonstrated today with bigger numbers and new places.
