Heute morgen wurde die Stadt Hama von syrischen Panzern gestürmt. Die Bilanz der ersten Stunden: 121 Tote, unzählige Verletzte:
At least 121 people were killed on Sunday when the military launched an attack on the flashpoint protest city of Hama in central Syria, a human rights activist said.
Ammar Qorabi, who heads the National Organisation for Human Rights, reported the toll and also said army attacks across the country on Sunday killed at least 121 people and wounded dozens more.
Earlier, Rami Abdel Rahman of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported a death toll in Hama of 45, but said that number could rise because of the number of seriously wounded and a lack of medical supplies.
Tanks stormed the Syrian city of Hama after besieging it for nearly a month in response to some of the biggest protests against President Bashar Al Assad’s rule.
One Hama resident, a doctor, said there were 51 people wounded at Badr hospital alone, which was running short of blood for transfusions. He said tanks had surrounded another main hospital, Al Horani.
