Tension Continues in Syria

| No Comments

Hundreds of men and boys gathered for mosque prayers Friday in Binnish Syria, but what appeared to be peaceful soon turned into a rally denouncing Syria's president, Bashar al-Assad.
Friday morning, Muhamed Hasmus, a resident of the nearby city Idlib was killed by a sniper. The men and boys gathered were mourning the loss of Hasmus, cnn.com reports.
Those gathered at the mosque began chanting and soon made their way into the villiage square. They held banners, waved the opposition green, black and white flag, and conducted rituals of defiance that has been repeated weekly in this opposition enclave for months, reported CNN.
Rebels are now set for war. Rebel leaders say they have doubled the number of tanks and weapons on their base.
Two senior U.S. senators believe that the U.S. should support Syrian rebels, reports the Star Tribune.
