Homs, Syria (PRWEB) March 04, 2012
Syrian Expatriates organization (SEO) is deeply concerned about the safety of Baba Amer residents, after reports that, Assad forces blocked the access of Red Cross into this devastated area.
On Saturday Mar 3rd/2012, Reuters reported “Syrian forces pounded the battered city of Homs Saturday Mar 3th, and blocked aid reaching civilians stranded for weeks without food and fuel in the former rebel stronghold, activists and aid workers said.”
According to The Star, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said, “he has received “grisly reports” that Syrian government forces were arbitrarily executing, imprisoning and torturing people in the battle-scarred city of Homs after rebel fighters fled.”
Dr Mazen Hassan, SEO founder, said, “The Assad regime’s blocking of Red Cross access to Baba Amer, is an alarming sign, and denotes the dreadful intention of the regime to continue its barbaric crimes. We demand immediate and unconditional access of the international Committee of Red Cross, and all humanitarian organizations to Baba Amer. We urge the International community to intervene and stop the possible imminent massacre against people of Baba Amer.”
Syrian expatriates organization warns of high possibility of revenge driven crimes by Assad forces against people in the stronghold areas. SEO reiterates the Syrian Network for Human Rights in saying, “In an act of pure revenge, Assad's army has been firing mortar rounds and 500mm machine guns since this morning at Jobar," referring to a neighborhood adjacent to Baba Amr.
