Yesterday Syrian University students took to the street to send a message to end Bashar Al Assad’s rule which has undermined citizens’ rights.

 Unfortunately four students lost their lives during this intense protest which turned deadly, and several more were injured.

This is a testament to how ineffective Syria’s cease-fire is at this moment. The government forces seem to take satisfaction in using extreme force, even in student protests like this one. 

Yes at times student protests do get out-of-hand, but who fires live ammunitions to disperse the crowd?  The fact that gun shots were fired at students, it’s so absurd.

It’s unequivocal that the Syrian government takes satisfaction in the use of force, and use it as a way to intimidate any voice of reason standing in their way.
