Culture of Resistance

-~Statement of the Revolutionary Left Current in Syria on the massacre in the region of East Ghouta resulting from the use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime~-

"At dawn on August 21 2013 hundreds of Syrians have fallen, and among them a huge number of children and women, victims of deadly weapons: poisonous gases and explicit use of chemical weapons, in the regions of East Gouta in the countryside of Damascus, as part of a fierce military attack waged by the regime since this morning on these areas. The list of sufferings and sacrifices of the masses of our people has lengthened after more than two years, it is no longer possible to count the hundreds of thousands of martyrs and wounded, detainees and millions of displaced and refugees. The suffering of our people has continued and it became more unbearable. Cry goes unheeded, and lingers the death silence of the human conscience.


Killing and coercion of our people continue, perpetrated by the machine of death and destruction of a regime that exceeds fascism by its savagery. It is a tragedy that the world has not known for a long time, the tragedy of a people revolting for freedom and liberation from the clutches of a dictatorship, from its savage repression and from its savage exploitation of the oppressed in our country, serving the interests of a narrow bourgeois clique.

Our revolution has no sincere ally, except the popular revolutions of the region and of the world and of all the militants struggling against regimes of ignorance and servitude and exploitation. This crime is part of the criminal and terrible actions of the ruling juntas against the masses of our people of unarmed civilians in shocking disregard for the human conscience and at a time when the forces of counter-revolution organized an offensive against the revolutions in the region, led by Saudi Arabia and its allies, the regime has found an opportunity to commit the heinous massacre. Yet our rebellious and determined people, proven by his injuries, will continue its resistance against the criminal tyrants, they will inflict a defeat and punishment they deserve for their crimes.

We bury our dead and will look after our wounded. We will only be more determined and resolute in our struggle for the fall of the murderous and destructive regime and the victory of our people’s revolution.

For the edification of Syria for freedom, justice, equality and social justice

No to Washington! No to Moscow!

No to Riyadh! No to Tehran!

Glory to the martyrs and healing for the wounded and victory of the popular revolution all the power and wealth of the people”

Chemical weaponry targeting civilians in Eastern and Western ALGhouta’s towns, leading to massive massacre - Wednesday, 21/8/2013 [Damascus province]
[Final report composed for Wednesday, 21/8/2013]


—- Syrian Revolution General Commission was able to document 646 martyrs, amongst them 33 women and 22 children, killed in the chemical weaponry massacre committed by the regime. We do note though that the death toll is much higher and we are still working on documenting the names and photos of the martyrs. This report will be updated further as information floods in from medical points and activists regarding the exact death toll. 

++++++++++

At around 2:45 A.M in the early morning of Wednesday, the regime’s forces began heavily bombarding several areas in Eastern Al Ghouta using rocket with warheads; the bombardment specifically targeted the following areas:
1] Al Zainia area in Ein Turma town
2] area behind Najeeb station near Zamallaka town
3] area begind Krash factory in Jobar district

Tens of rockets with chemical warheads targeted the areas as the mortar bombardment did not stop until sunrise, when warplanes then launched 20 airstrikes.

Hundreds of civilians then began flooding to makeshift hospitals across the Eastern towns of Al Ghouta, noting that even the medical team got affected by the gases due to the lack of masks. 
Afterwards, activists reported that huge regime reinforcements were seen on Damascus-Homs railway and on Al Adaqi railway as the regime’s forces also cut off the Damascus-Qunaitera railway near Sehnaya town. More than 15 tanks were spotted near Al Abbaseyyeen sqaure, heading towards Al Abbaseyyeen garages; a number anti-aircrafts and Shabiha (thugs) buses/vehicles were spotted too. 

——————————-

In Western AL Ghouta, at 5:15 A.M. in the early morning of Wednesday, Mua’dameyet Al Sham town got targeted by more than 17 rockets with chemical warheads as well as by tens of tank shelling, leading to the martyrdom of tens of civilians, most of whom are women and children. Hundreds of civilians have been exposed by the chemical weaponry.
Regime has not stopped at that extent, but also launched tens of airstrikes after sunrise, leading to the fall of tens of casualties.

Makeshift hospital documented the martyrdom of 103 civilians, amongst them 15 children and 20 women and to the chemical exposure of 625 other civilians suffering from severe suffocation. Up to 34 houses were completely destroyed and up to 25 other houses were partially damaged.

Regime’s forces have also cut off Damascus-Qunaitera railway; a huge military convoy was spotted coming from the revolutionary guard’s base; the convoy included 10 vehicles, armoured tanks, artillery, and tens of soldiers.
