Fiercest Anti-Government Demonstrations Continue in Turkey

June 3, 2013

Turkish peaceful protesters clashed with policemen into the early hours of Monday with setting fire to some offices of Turkey's ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) as the fiercest anti-government demonstrations in years entered their fourth day.

Routers mentioned that roads around Prime Minister Reccep Tayyip Erdogan's office in Istanbul were sealed off as police fired teargas to push back protesters in the early hours of Monday.

In the main street near Erdogan's office, one demonstrator drove a small mechanical digger towards police lines as other protesters followed behind.

At a nearby mosque, medical staff including trainee doctors treated those hurt in the clashes, Routers said.

It pointed out that bus shelters, paving stones and street signs ripped up by protesters to make barricades that littered a major avenue by the Bosphorus strait in Istanbul where some of the heaviest clashes took place overnight, and graffiti covered walls.

Dogan news agency reported that in the western port city of Izmir, protesters through fire bombs at AK Party offices overnight as the policemen stormed commercial compound in Ankara for doubts that protesters resorted to the compound and arrested many persons.

Turkey's main stock exchange has dropped sharply on opening on Monday. It fell 8 percent as investors worried about the destabilizing effect of the demonstrations on the economy.

The Turkish lira weakened to 1.8910 against the dollar on Monday, a decline from 1.8706 on Friday . The yield on Turkey's benchmark 10-year bonds climbed to 7.12 percent from 6.84 percent on Friday.

The EU Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton has condemned the disproportionate use of force by police against protestors in Turkey and expressed “deep concern” over the violence.

" Ashton calls for restraint on all sides and an end to the violence. Dialogue should be opened to find a peaceful solution to this issue,” a spokesperson for Catherine Ashton said in a statement quoted by Russian news agency RIA Novosti.

Amnesty International has criticized the use of excessive force to disperse peaceful protestors.

The United States also has called on Turkish security forces to show restraint in facing the protests.

The White House demanded all parties in Turkey to "calm the situation" amid anti-government protests.

Associated Press quoted the White House spokeswoman Laura Lucas as saying : " The U.S. believes peaceful public demonstrations "are a part of democratic expression,"

" Turkey's long-term stability is best guaranteed by upholding "the fundamental freedoms of expression, assembly and association." She added. 

The spark of protests was triggered because of a project to uproot 600 trees from the Gezi Park in Taksim Square in Istanbul which is considered an outlet for the city's citizens.

Death Toll of Clashes in Egypt Rises to 32, More Than 700 Wounded


Jan 26, 2013

The death toll of the ongoing clashes between Security Forces and demonstrators in Egypt which started since Friday on the 2nd anniversary of January 25th revolution rose to 32 and more than 700 wounded, according to medical sources and a statement by the Egyptian Health Ministry.

The Health Ministry stated that the number of killed people due to the continuous clashes in the city of Port Said increased up to 24 and more than 300 wounded.

Director of the Heath Affairs Department in the city, Dr. Helmi al-Afani, said the Department called upon the residents to donate blood and asked the doctors in the city to participate in treating the injured.

Events in Port Said escalated after the Criminal Court in the city issued death sentences against 21 people suspected in the events.

The families of the suspects reacted by trying to storm into the rescue and emergency garage of the province in a bid to get their hands on vehicles to use them in breaking into the Prison of Port Said and releasing the suspects. Accordingly, the security forces and policemen headed to the garage to keep the situation under control.

Clashes erupted later when another group of the suspects' families set ablaze the housing compound of the Central Security personnel outside the Port Said Hospital as well as the Electricity Directorate, while others blocked the road between Port Said and al-Ismailia.

Earlier, reports said that the clashes between the Security Forces and demonstrators near Port Said Prison resulted in the killing of 5 persons, among them an officer and a police officer, and injuring of 75 others.

Egyptian Interior Ministry Spokesman, Major Gen. Osama Ismael said that an officer and a police secretary were killed and scores of the Prisons guard forces were injured in the events.

Ismael added that the number of  police members who were injured during the last two days reached 122.

Egyptian al-Yaoum7 site quoted medical sources in al-Suez city as saying that the death toll of clashes in this port city rose to 9 , adding that the victims died of live bullets.

The sources said that 118 persons were injured during the clashes.

Ministry of Health reported that one citizen was killed in al-Ismailia city with more than 456 wounded people.

Clashes between Egyptian Security forces and protestors broke out in a number of Egyptian cities on the 2nd anniversary of January 25th revolution against policies of President Mohammad Morsi.

Meanwhile, more than 15 political powers in the country called on the Egyptian people to demonstrate on Saturday in protest of the policies of Morsi and the rule of the Muslim brotherhood.

The powers announced organizing a mass peaceful march at 3 afternoon setting off from al-Tahrir Square before Omar Makram mosque into al-Shura council.

Syrian SANA News Agency website is under fierce attack 07-14 ...



http://www.isitdownrightnow.com/sana.sy.html: 'Sana.sy is DOWN for everyone. It is not just you. The server is not responding...'

Comment: 'I don't think that Sana's website is unreachable because of the server is 'probably overloaded'.  I believe the server has been blocked by the Pentagon that is publishing now all kind of stories about the 'victorious offensive of the Free Libyan Army', that is justly recognized by the French and British government.  It is part of the American war propaganda.
As we know, Obama signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for Syrian armed groups and terrorists seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government.  Obama’s order, approved earlier this year and known as an intelligence “finding,” broadly permits the CIA and other U.S. agencies to provide support that could help the terrorists oust Assad.  C.I.A. officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey. Weapons, including automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, ammunition and some antitank weapons, are being funneled mostly across the Turkish border by way of a shadowy network of intermediaries including Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood and paid for by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
Thanks for the nice statistics.'


Syrian Arab News Agency SANA: Google censure


The website of the Syrian Arab News Agency SANA is regularly blocked by Washington that doesn't stop its war propaganda.

Some days ago SANA was inaccessible again: 'Page Web inaccessible - Unable to load web page on Google Chrome, because www.sana.sy did not respond in time. It is possible that the site is blocked or you have problems with your Internet connection - Error 118 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT)'

Google Research doesn't show actually SANA's website under the searching words 'latest news Syria'.

It is clear that the search engines are in the hands of the U.S. government which doesn't want a political solution for Syria and doesn't stop its financial and military aid to terrorist groups in Turkey and Syria.
While C.I.A. officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey, weapons, including automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, ammunition and some antitank weapons, are being funneled mostly across the Turkish border by way of a shadowy network of intermediaries to Syria.

Israeli occupation authorities blocked website of Syrian Arab News Agency


Israeli Occupation Authorities Block SANA Website in the Golan

Aug 4, 2012

QUNEITRA, (SANA)- The Israeli occupation authorities have blocked the website of the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) to prevent the citizens in the occupied Syrian Golan from accessing the website and following the news about the homeland.

The measure came in the framework of a campaign launched against the Syrian media to prevent the reality of the situation in the country from reaching the public opinion.

Journalist Ata Farhat from the Golan stressed, in a statement to SANA reporter, that this Zionist infringement on press freedom will not affect the Golan people's reading and view of the events taking place in their homeland.

He added that the Golan people are aware of the conspiracy and the multi-faceted global war waged against Syria and its people.

The Arab League Council had asked the administrations of the Arabsat and Nilesat satellites to halt the broadcast of the Syrian official and non-official satellite channels.

The decision was aimed at continuing the war of media terrorism on Syria that is sponsored by some Gulf states in service of the Western, U.S. and Israeli agendas.

Sanctions had been imposed by the European Union on the Syrian TV, the General Establishment of the Radio and TV and Addounia TV to block their satellite broadcast.

The Israeli authorities' blocking of SANA website in the occupied Golan is but part of the same campaign that is meant to achieve the same goal sought by the Arab League and the EU, which is to silence the voice of reality in Syria.

American secret service operatives are distributing illegal assault rifles, anti-tank rocket launchers and other ammunition to Syrian terrorists, the New York Times reports.
