YOU LOOK AT YOUR WINDOW AND WHAT DO YOU SEE? THREE TANKS HEADING DIRECTLY AT YOU AND FIRING. Damascus (Daraya): Jan 22, 2013 - This is not a dream and it’s not a nightmare. This is the reality of life in Syria. This town itself has been decimated by Assad’s forces. It was the epicenter of peaceful protests and an example of a community that was able to self-govern itself until Assad’s forces re-captured the town and massacred upto 1,000 men, women and children over three days starting Aug 25, 2012, the single worst massacre of the entire revolution.
The town is now a war zone. Assad’s tanks make daily incursions into the town, shooting at anything. As you can see in the video, a BMP (the vehicle in the middle of the two tanks) fires it’s cannon directly at the cameraman as it races down the apocalyptic hell-scape that is now Daraya.
In addition to tank raids, there is the constant shelling.
