For 91 days regime forces have occupied the town, preventing food, water, medicine, medical help, electricity and telecommunications from the residents. Regime forces continue to shell homes, shoot residents, and loot and burn homes and private property.
At least 23 violations to the Annan plan were reported in Dar’aa on Tuesday, thirty two days after its enactment.
