What’s happening to my city in Syria right now is something else..hasn’t happened as bad for a long time…the government is shelling one of the last safe areas housing its own civilians and thousands upon thousands of displaced people including family and friends. Fires are left and right, people running in the night with no where to go as they already fled their homes. The government is disgusting, the government is still backed and supported by many.
Whatever it feels or thinks about what is going on, shelling a densely populated area with over 300000 civilians crammed into buildings as most are homeless already, is beyond sick. I choose to watch my neighborhood be shelled down as most people left it, than watch an area housing homeless women, kids, elderly be shelled. Where do they all go? The regime is trying to empty an entire province…Like for example emptying London…By using missiles and planes and helicopters and tanks. One of the last safe areas is now hit, where do these people go if Hezbollah are blocking access to refugees trying to cross from Homs to Lebanon? And going from Homs to Damascus is dangerous and Damascus is already a war zone. Where do the Syrians go. I wish we had an answer.
Homs is trapped from all sides, and the regime is not asking if you are pro or anti, it’s an all out war against every life, stone, tree and animal to empty Homs province and keep it for safety – to keep the regime in power.
So awful and heartbreaking, imagining civilians running now with no where to go. So sad.
