All quotes are just rough translations and summaries of the actual interviews.

The city of Deir Ezzor in eastern Syria has been devastated by the civil war. For more than one year, regular forces and the Free Syrian Army have been fighting inside the city with the Syrian Airforce bombing on a daily basis. By now, the airport has been one of the few remaining strongholds for the regime in Deir Ezzor. Rebels have been besieging it for more than one month but due to ammunition shortage they were not able to gain any ground for weeks. Roughly 300 fighters are thinly scattered around the airport from where regime forces inside the city are supplied.

  1. you know… at first i was like yeah yeah go FSA go…but when i see how you idiots handle things and how you act like BEASTS… i like to see every killing 🙂 its just like watching movies and i like it 🙂

  2. You base that on what exactly? The ultra reliable polling by the Assad regime? 🙂 Who knows, maybe he is still popular, maybe he isn't. Personally I have low hopes for any govt. that replaces him being much better…But I also support the right of people, even a minority, to take up arms against a tyrannical leader who extends no serious political rights to his people. Who am I to say they are better off under the dictator Assad?
