With mottos and chants which praise the accomplishments of the Syrian army and their repeated heroism, a public crowd from Qodsayya neighborhoods went in march in support for those heroes -according to them- and to their leader “Bashar Assad” where the governor of Damascus countryside, Albaeth party manager, the military commanderships in the Army and National Defense, and reconciliation committees attended; after they reached their goal which is displacing up to 1300 people of its citizens under the pretexts of seizing fire and saving souls.
Probably the first thing to come on any Syrian citizen’s mind who is totally aware of what is really going on in reality is that in all the areas in which Assad’s regime followed the policy of siege, hunger and intensive bombardment in aiming to humiliate their people and forcing them to yield to him and his conditions, where eventually they become forced to abandon their homes, relatives and memories to head far areas with which they have no connection at all but the fact they are liberated areas from Assad’s tyrant regime.
Here they are pro regime and its supporters who went on in marching celebrating the great victory they achieved, but in reality they people of no human sense, for they went on to dance and sing in celebration of Homeland and his commander besides Qodsayya coming back becoming a part of the country without any considering the feelings of who have abandon Qodsayya against their will where they left just fearing discord that regime really seeks to kindle it among the civilians and the relatives of armed opposition. Here they had two options either to accept displacement or to liver under the mercy of barrel bombs and missiles around the clock; they have chosen displacement so that their lives turn to be like hell destroying everything about living.
Several revolutionary event and many leaders of the Syrian opposion in addition to others who inveigh the plan and efforts of regime to cause demographic change in the cities and towns on which its forces tighten the siege where regime caries out a replacement in a planned operation on area after area till reaching the aim and achieving its goals in gathering the opposition in the northern. Despite all the warns and denouncement, regime is still working on that policy applying it in accordance to the priority and to a planed schedule.
In a meeting with a lady from Qodsayya city in a refuging center in Idlib city who refused to reveal her name fearing regime avenging from her relatives:” Till the last moment my son kept telling me that he would not forgive me for destroying his future and he did not want to leave the city asking me what was his fault to lose his future”.
Her son was about to graduate from Business administration collage but her husband was wanted by regime. She decide to scarify her son’s future than losing her complete family. She is like many who were forced to do this.
One of pro regime pages posted photos celebrating the victory of the army over who it called “armed” in Qodsayya city at the time they are far away from the meaning of victory; they have achieved their goal but with means only who lost legitimacy and humanity fighting the people with varied weapons carries out them. No matter how it takes long, right must avenge the aggrieved. But the question is what is regime’s next desination of forced displacement?
