As many as 33 people have been killed by the fire of Syrian forces across the country on Friday, Al Arabiya reported citing activists at the Local Coordination Committees, as the office of international envoy Kofi Annan said his peace plan is “on track.”
Security forces opened fire on Syrians who took to their streets in their thousands on Friday to call for regime change, a rights watchdog said.
Activist Abu Omar, reached by AFP in Beirut via Skype, said troops shot at demonstrators outside the main mosque in the Damascus neighborhood of Jubar.
Shootings were also reported by activists in other neighborhoods of the capital and surrounding towns as well as in Hasakeh, in the northeast of the country.
Elsewhere, government forces used gunfire to disperse demonstrators in two districts of the central city of Hama and in another town of the same province, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
