The human cost to the Syrian uprising

A friend in Damascus recently sent me an email containing video evidence of civilians being shot and killed in Syria as the regime cracks down on protesters.

Some scenes are graphic.

The videos were titled in Arabic, so I have roughly translated them (excuse my basic Arabic skills):

قتل النساء في بانياس الأسبوع الماضي
(The killing of women in Banias last week)

فيديو مؤلم: قنص أم وولدها وهم متجهون للمستشفى بدرعا وإطلاق الرصاص على من يحاول إسعافهم:

(Painful video: sniper shoots mother and her son as they are on their way to the hospital in Daraa. Then shoots at people  trying to give first aid)
