Security forces behind Syria killings - opposition

Syria: Two people have been killed and 41 others injured when armed men attacked law enforcement personnel on duty in Syria’s northwestern city of Latakia. Medical sources in the al-Ramel al-Janoubi neighborhood of the city confirmed the casualties of the personnel on Sunday, Syria news agency SANA reported. The armed gang used machine guns, grenades and explosive devices, terrifying people and vandalizing the public and private properties, the report added.

“We were in the neighborhood when the terrorists started shooting at us. They were using arms and dynamite,” said one of the wounded personnel.

On Friday, armed gangs with snipers fired randomly in the Damascus suburb of Douma, the Sakhour neighborhood in the northern province of Aleppo, and the Areha neighborhood in the northern province of Idlib, killing at least five people, including three members of the security forces.

The opposition accuses security forces of being behind the killings. But the Syrian government blames armed gangs for the violence, saying that the unrest is being orchestrated from outside the country. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and Turkey are apparently planning to send large caches of weapons, including anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles, mortar bombs and heavy machine guns, to major Syrian cities witnessing unrest, according to a report on debka.com.
