Wednesday - bloodiest day of Syrian revolt
With at least 305 people killed in the violence that raged across Syria, Wednesday has been the bloodiest day in the country since the revolt started some 18 months ago, according to a statement by the Syrian Observatory for Human rights (SOHR) said on Thursday. "This is the highest toll recorded in a single day since March 2011. And that counting only those identified. After identifying more bodies the death toll would be heavier," said the head of SOHR, Rami Abdel Rahman.
Meanwhile, Tunisia is ready to support an Arab intervention in Syria to restore peace in the country, said Wednesday the Tunisian president Moncef Marzouki. "A peaceful operation of executed by the Arab countries is possible , "said the head of the Tunisian State on the sidelines of the 67th UN General Assembly.
In his speech Tuesday before the UN General Assembly, the Qatari Emir Hamad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani called for Arab countries to interfere in the situation in Syria because the Security Council was unable to formulate a common position on the settlement of the Syrian crisis.
The Secretary General of the Arab League Nabil al-Arabi said on Wednesday that calls to interfere in the situation in Syria without UN endorsement did not include the use of force to overthrow the current regime.
