小编摘要：在叙利亚的 Aleppo 城市，抗议者们逃避炮火。在靠近大马士革的地方，业余摄影者的录像显示，联合国和平监督人员的卡车正在缓慢地通过反政府抗议者的队伍。
Protesters flee gun fires in a Syria Town of Aleppo. And near Damascus, amateur’s video shows United Nation’s peace monitors edging their vans through anti-governmental protesters.
The protest came after massive car bombs Thursday killed more than 50 people. The bombs raised fears that the Syrian conflict could be worsening as Al-Qaida terrorists step into the political chaos.
Heritage Foundation’s senior Middle East Analyst James Philips:
“I think this is a symptom of the fact that the conflict is attracting the influx of Jihadists who were often involved in this kind of suicide attacks, and specifically it looks like al-Qaida.
The Syrian government is urging the U.N Security Council to take actions in the wake of the blasts. It says they are proof that Syria is facing terrorist attacks led by groups receiving foreign supports.
Until now, Syria groups fighting President Basal Assad’s government were mostly secular nationalists. But that seems to be changing.
“I think it’s a sign that the conflict is intensifying and that is bringing into play a whole new dynamic of Islamists who are determined to highjack the revolution.”
The United Nations is deploying 300 unarmed observers to Syria to monitor compliance with the ceasefire which has not yet taken hold.
U.N Spokesman Neeraj Singh:
“We have, we have all our sympathies and condolences for the families of the people who have lost their loved ones in such incidents. This is what has to stop and that’s exactly where we are focused.”
The U.N monitoring mission is widely seen as failing because the violence continues to escalate.
Again, James Philips:
“And now we see that some elements of the opposition are violating the proposed ceasefire. That will give the Assad regime another pretext for continuing what it’s already doing which is massacring its own people.”
There are concerns that Syria’s slide into chaos will give extremists more space to move in and operate.
