The Syrian government had already killed an estimated 1,200 civilians in an indication to crackdown the protesters. A military operation took place in the town as part of a wider crackdown since March of protests calling for the end of President Bashar al-Assad's rule.
Activists have admitted that a small number of protesters, pushed to the extreme by over four months of a crackdown that has seen tanks and even helicopters bombard cities and towns, are fighting back.
"We can't know who killed the security because no one is allowed in to see," said Rami Abdul-Rahman, of the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which claimed at least 27 civilians and 13 security force personnel had been killed in Jisr al-Shughour over the weekend. "You can't control people who see their relatives killed or tortured and not expect a small minority not to fight back, but it is all regime-stoked," he said.
Human rights organisations say more than 1,200 civilians, including 77 children, have been killed since the protests broke out in mid-March, while the government claims more than 200 of its personnel have been shot dead.
This video is for awareness about the current situation in Syria. In 15th of March 2011, the Syrians started a peaceful revolution against the current regime (ruled by Bashar Al-Assad) to end oppression and poverty in Syria that has lasted for more than 40 years.
