Two of my friends in Damascus could’ve been killed by a terrorist mortar attack yesterday, in front of a busy cafe in the city. As it is, one is injured by the shrapnel in the mortar, the other was saved by this car, which took the brunt of the shrapnel.
A friend in the thick of the terrorists’ shellings in Damascus—multiple areas—writes this:
هذا ويستمر أبناء العاهرة في إمطارنا بقذائف الحرية.. صرنا 13 في المنطقة ومستمرون في العد .. ما جاي على بالي اطرق كفرية.
Sons of bitches are still sending us waves of their “freedom & Liberty” shells.
13 so far and still counting.
Fourteen and counting
One martyr, and a bit over a dozen wounded
