December 2, 2012
This morning in Aleppo, a leader of the Syrian regime's forces was killed by FSA fighters. The FSA fighters found the soldier's diaries in their office and took photos of some pages.

At 6:15 shooting started heavily toward our location from the cement factory.
We all mobilized and the food car was giving us food, and then it went to the free area and it had to pass by the Juvenile prison which is next to the cement factory.
We stayed mobilized until the sniping stopped and the food car left the place and the danger was gone, thank God. It seems like we are going to live.
Wednesday 5/9
That difficult night is gone in a good way and things became calm after approximately an hour, we stayed awake all night especially after the fall of mortars near the school.
When the sun started to rise, the sniper started to shoot, which is annoying because it limits our movements. He was sniping from the cement factory toward us.
Thank God that he doesn't have a night telescope so he can't target us at night.
Here I am at 6:30 after I called my sister Laila on the phone and told her that am not in the infantry school, and she's the only one who knows that.

Surviving In A Ghost Town, Halep, Syr...
Aleppo, Syria
By Michele Pero
02 Dec 2012

Downtown Halep, quarters of Bustan al-Pasha and Sakhour, December 2012.
The town is partially controlled by the brigades of the Free Syria Army. Snipers, hidden in isolated buildings, necessitate a fast crossing through the large and open avenues. Some people try to continue their normal life downtown, still living in their houses, even if the majority have left for the refugee camps at the borders of the country.

MIGs and helicopters of the Bashar Al Assad regime are continuously releasing rockets and barrel-bombs over the buildings. A quick look at the sky, some strikes, the blast and gray smoke lifts not too far from where we are. Another building hit, some people wounded and injured will be soon added to the list.

Daily life in Halep is pretty scary. The regime is now releasing big barrels filled with explosives. They release these bombs over the town, anywhere they like. No targets are aimed. They throw them here and there. No one is safe in any shelter. Shelters actually don’t work. Halep is a very ancient town and buildings are very weak. In spite of that, some citizens are still keeping their homes there, still trying to lead a normal life, together with the rebels of the Free Syria Army which fight on two front lines: one against the regular forces of the regime, one other against the Kurdish minority which supports the regime. In the middle, the citizens of Halep, try to survive in a ghost town, partially destroyed, under the daily bombings of such madness.

Cairo, Egypt: November 24, 2011: Graffiti enlisting people's support to find Police Lieutenant Mahmoud Sobhy AlShenawy, also known as the "Eye Sniper." He is accused deliberately targeting the eyes of Tahrir demonstrators. The graffiti states that tens of brave Tahrir revolutionaries have lost their eyes to bullets fired from his rifle. Following the graffiti and an online campaign that includes a viral video of Mr. AlShenawy shooting at demonstrators during Novembers clashes, the Egypt's Ministry of the Interior reportedly issued a warrant for his arrest and Mr. el-Shenawy is reportedly now in police custody awaiting the conclusion of his trial. However, Tahrir activists report that the Ministry of the Interior initially denied that AlShenawy was a police officer, but after the spread of graffiti, the viral video, and the establishment of a people's reward of $1,000 for his capture, the Ministry arrested AlShenawi, then tried and found him innocent last week. According to activists he and his family are now being hidden and protected by the Ministry of the Interior.
