SUMMARY (19/08/2012): On the first day of Eid, at least 135 martyrs fell, mostly in Damasucs and Daraa, where there was a mass execution in the town of al-Herak. Assad could hardly spend 11 minutes attending Eid prayers in Muhajereen district of the capital, while in the fighting in Aleppo the FSA continue to close in around the city’s airport. Despite the bombing and snipers, Eid brought protesters out on the streets again in large numbers in many places. See the map for more info. It is very ugly to see more than 1,000 Syrians being killed by the regime every week now and everyone is taking it easy. But if many Syrians feel frustrated and abandoned by a world with conflicting interests in the country, we should spare a thought for the Rohingya in Myanmar who literally nobody seems to give a damn about.
