South Florida organization calls for attention to Syria
Under Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad’s military regime, residents there have fallen victim to a barrage of tank shells, mortar bomns and nail bombs destroying residential homes and killing innocent civilians. A weekend attack killed nearly three hundred people this weekend in the town of Homs, and just yesterday the United States pulled its diplomats out of the embassy due to the overwhelming unrest. For eleven months, Syrians have suffered, and now the South Florida chapter of the Syrian American Council is calling upon the Obama Administration and the United Nations to take emergency measures to protect Syria’s people. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Katiana Krawchenko talked with their spokesman, Motassem Muhammed, about why this is so important to them.
