Daily report from Latakia on Friday [Protocol of Death] 23/12/2011
Another Friday… Heavy security… protests! As usual Security and thugs surrounded many of the city mosques like Al-Muhajireen, Al-Ajjan, Zuzu, Al-Bazaar, and BeirQdar, as well as totally surrounding the Oweineh and Qalaa areas to prevent any protests, and completely blocking Tabiyat area by security cars where Al-Rahman mosque was sounded with security and few top ranked army officers. On the other hand it was fairly quit in Al-Ajjan mosque due to Shaikh Zakariya Salwayeh who’s seen as a regime figure here in Latakia.
Security was also present as heavily near Nidal School in Ashrafiyeh, Abi-Tammam Park, Shukri Hakim School, Antakia street, and MarTaqla.
All that could not stop people going on protests, as a big one took place in Al-Rawda mosque in Mashrou’ Yaseen, and ended up with security surrounding those in the mosque, beating and swearing at them, as well as arresting two; one was Imad Al-Sari fro Jebel Al-Zawieh who’s a fifth year Power Engineering college student.
In Husien mosque, and as a demo was taking shape, fully armed security attacked people inside the mosque, the situation escalated to security arresting some and people getting angrier as some of them started attacked some of the unarmed members, which in the end led to security releasing those captured.
A similar thing took place in Al-Fattahi mosque as security and thugs attacked protesters inside. While Yaseen mosque saw a protest attempt halted immediately by security.
Protesting also took place in the Babanna abd Jengheel villages after the noon prayers, while security sounded Al-Gharbi mosque in Haffeh town to prevent any protests. And at night people of Zenqouqa village gathered chanting for freedom, whereas in Salma village they praised the Lord aloud.
Later on many swift protests took place in Antakia and in Qnainas, as well as in Oweineh where security raided the neighborhood breaking into buildings and searching them. Another night protest took place in Slaybeh near Hamad mosque.
Tension is high is the University’s dorm these days as it is filled with security and Baath Party members led by Ghaled Shehade; these were armed with knives and other objects to deal with any possible protest after few students witnessed the incidents in Rawda and Yaseen mosques mentioned earlier.
Security also raided Mashrou’ Al-Slaybeh, and Al-Raml where many were arrested on Al-Bahr Street near Freedom Square. Three others were arrested in Skantoori near Ashur mosque, one was Muhammad Jaleq and one is called Naser. Qnainas was also raided by Assad thugs while an explosion was heard.
