Syria Protest Crackdown Leaves At Least 32 Dead During Assault On North




Yayladagi, Turkey -- Elite Syrian forces moved swiftly through the country's restive north on Friday, raining tank shells on rebellious towns, torching farmland and shooting protesters who tried to tear down a poster of President Bashar Assad, activists and refugees said.



At least 32 people were killed, activists said, and undaunted protests extended to every major city.

The leader of neighboring Turkey, angered by violence that has sent more than 4,000 Syrians streaming across the border, accused the Assad regime of "savagery."


Backed by helicopters and tanks, the troops responsible for most of Friday's violence were believed to be from an elite division commanded by Assad's younger brother, Maher. The decision to mobilize his unit against the most serious threats to the 40-year Assad regime could be a sign of concern about the loyalty of regular conscripts.


Syrians who escaped from the town of Jisr al-Shughour into Turkey said the army came after police turned their guns on each other and soldiers refused orders to fire on protesters last week. Syrian state television has said 120 officers and security personnel were killed by gunmen. A man who remained behind said the few residents left were hoping barricades of burning tires could hold off the reinforcements surrounding them.
从Jisr al-Shughour逃出的叙利亚民众说,在上周,赶来支援警察的军队掉转了枪口相互对峙,士兵们拒绝向抗议者开火。叙利亚国家电视台称120名军警死于武装分子的袭击。一个留在Jisr al-Shughour的人说,一小群留下居民用焚烧轮胎制造的路障能暂时挡住围困他们的增援部队。


Twenty-five miles (40 kilometers) to the southeast in the town of Maaret al-Numan, thousands of protesters overwhelmed security officers and torched the courthouse and police station, and the army responded with tank shells, a Syrian opposition figure told The Associated Press by telephone, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.
在Maaret al-Numan东南40公里外,远强于安全部队示威民众焚烧了法院和警察局,军队则用坦克炮火还击,一位叙利亚反对派人用在电话上高诉美联社,他因为当前的敏感性未透露姓名。


Syria's state-run television appeared to confirm at least part of the report, saying gunmen opened fire on police stations, causing casualties among security officials.


Syria's government has a history of violent retaliation against dissent, including a three-week bombing campaign against the city of Hama that crushed an uprising there in 1982. Jisr al-Shughour itself came under government shelling in 1980, with a reported 70 people killed.
叙利亚政府有过镇压异己者的历史,包括对Hama市长达三周的轰炸以镇压1982年的起义,Jisr al-Shughour(上文提到的城市)本身就在1980年遭到炮击导致70人死亡。


Confirming information out of Syria is difficult. Communications are cut in areas where the uprising is strongest. Syrians who speak openly face retribution from the regime, and foreign journalists have been expelled.


Refugees trying to escape into Turkey, who now number more than 4,000, gave a more detailed picture of the events in the north.


A group of young men who arrived at the Turkish village of Guvecci on Friday said relatives who stayed behind told them Syrian forces were burning homes and fields in the village of Sirmaniyeh, near Jisr al-Shughour. One of the men said a helicopters had fired on a mosque there, the refused to say anything more.
一群在周五来到土耳其村庄Guvecci的青年所,他们留在叙利亚亲戚告诉他们叙利亚军队焚烧了Sirmaniyeh(在上文提到的Jisr al-Shughour附近)附近的房舍和农田。其中一位年轻人说直升机向清真寺开火,但他拒绝提供更多信息。


"They are burning down everything there," said a young man who gave his name as Adil. "They said they even killed animals. The people have no weapons, they can't defend themselves. The only thing they can do is escape."


As he spoke another Syrian got a call telling him his cousin had died in Latakia, where activists said security forces fired on protesters who tried to tear down a giant poster of Assad, killing seven. The young man whose phone rang slumped and wept.


The Local Coordination Committees, a group that documents anti-government protests in Syria, said 32 people were killed on Friday, half of them in Idlib, the province home to Maaret al-Numan and Jisr al-Shughour. Late Friday, Syrian television said troops reached the entrances of Jisr al-Shughour and detained members of "armed groups."
地方协调委员会,一个记录叙利亚反政府示威的活动的组织称,有32人在周五被杀,其中一半死于Idlib(Maaret al-Numan和Jisr al-Shughour所在的省份)。上周五,叙利亚的电视台说部队抵达了Jisr al-Shughour的入口并扣押了部分“武装组织”的成员。


Citing contacts inside Syria, Rami Abdul-Rahman, the London-based head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said more than 10,000 soldiers were involved.
Rami Abdul-Rahman,一个总部设在伦敦的叙利亚人权观察组织,援引叙利亚内部的消息称,上万名士兵参与了镇压。


Witnesses contacted by telephone said most residents had abandoned the town of up to 45,000.


Syria's government invited an AP reporter to accompany troops to Jisr al-Shughour, apparently reflecting a new effort to counter criticism and prove the existence of armed gangs.
叙利亚政府邀请一位美联社记者跟随叙利亚军队去Jisr al-Shughour,这隐射了叙利亚政府的新的对抗抨击的策略并公开了武装势力的存在。


In Sirmaniyeh, where the refugee reported the torching of homes and fields, journalists accompanying Syrian troops in the morning saw a parked army bus, its front windshield smashed by gunfire. The army said the bus was ambushed early Friday, and that driver escaped unhurt after a bullet struck his protective vest.


Journalists were also shown eight grenades on a roadside in Ziara, another village in the area.


"Now we feel safe," said Walida Sheikho, a 50-year-old woman who welcomed the troops in the village of Foro, near Jisr al-Shugho.
“现在我们觉得安全了”Walida Sheikho一位欢迎政府军入城的50岁妇女说。


She and other residents offered food, water and juice to the Syrian troops and said they had appealed for help from the army.


Jisr al-Shughour is a predominantly Sunni town with some Alawite and Christian villages nearby. Most Syrians are Sunni Muslim, but Assad and the ruling elite belong to the minority Alawite sect, an offshoot of Shiite Islam.
Jisr al-Shughour是一个以逊尼派穆斯林为主,周边有少数Alawite教派和基督徒的城市。大多数叙利亚人是逊尼派穆斯林,但是阿沙德和他的幕僚属于什叶派的一个分支Alawite教派。


State television said armed groups torched crops and wheat fields around Jisr al-Shughour as the army approached.
叙利亚国家电视台说当政府军逼近是武装组织焚烧了Jisr al-Shughour的谷物和小麦。


A man in the town blamed security forces for the crop-burning. He said the few remaining residents were collecting tires to burn in an attempt to try to block the army advance. Speaking by phone, he told an AP reporter in Beirut that about 40 tanks rolled into a village five miles (12 kilometers) from Jisr al-Shughour. He and other activists reported hearing bursts of machine gun fire.
一位城里的居民责怪是安全部队焚烧的粮食。他说少数留下的居民试图以焚烧轮胎阻挡军队前进。通过电话他告诉美联社记者在Beirut大约有40两坦克冲进一个离Jisr al-Shughour只有12公里的村子,他和其他革命者听到了机枪点射的声音。


Other protests in Syria occurred in neighborhoods in the capital, Damascus, and the major city of Aleppo, which are vital to Assad's authoritarian regime. But the demonstrations in those cities have been relatively limited in scope compared to other restive areas.


Activists said security forces opened fire on protesters near the Sheikh Jaber mosque in the Damascus suburb of Qaboun, killing three people and wounding several others. One activist, who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals, said there were snipers on rooftops and security checkpoints outside local mosques.
革命者说安全部队向大马士革郊区地区Qaboun的Sheikh Jaber清真寺开火,导致3人丧生多人受伤。一个由于当心报复不愿公开姓名的革命者说,那一带房顶部署了狙击手,清真寺为设有检查站。


Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said he will keep the frontier open to Syrians fleeing violence, and the Turkish military was increasing border security to better manage the refugee influx. He singled out Assad's brother for criticism.


"I say this clearly and openly, from a humanitarian point of view, his brother is not behaving in a humane manner. And he is chasing after savagery," Erdogan said late Thursday.


Human rights groups say the crackdown has killed more than 1,400 people, most of them unarmed civilians. The government says a total of 500 security forces have also been killed.


"Unfortunately, it is clear that things are not going in the right direction," Turkish President Abdullah Gul said, according to the Anatolia news agency. "We are following things with sadness."
据安纳托利亚通讯社,土耳其总统Abdullah Gul说:“不幸的是势态正朝着错误的方向发展,我们正在接受悲伤。”
