Opposition: 35 killed in Syria as regime attacks escape route to Lebanon

At least 35 people were killed in Syria Tuesday as government forces took aim at citizens across the country, opposition activists said.

The deaths included 23 people in the opposition stronghold of Homs, according to the Local Coordination Committees of Syria, a network of opposition activists.

Also in Homs, the Syrian military targeted a bridge on the Orontes River near the Lebanese border used as a crossing by wounded Syrian civilians, dissidents and refugees fleeing to Lebanon, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, another opposition group.

    Nuns with switches?

    Remember the words of His prophets
    that you may come to know HOW to live!

    Peace, Justice, Liberty and Freedom
    is only an illusion!

    Endure to the end,

    Less than six months and

    Ye With Little Faith has forsaken Him...

    HE is watching you, watching me.

    ... and the wrath of God...

    What do YOU have to fear, miracles?

    Get behind me!

    Draw close to Him, not me...

    God Blessed the Children
    and I continue to pray for
    them... Who wouldn't?

    Judge me not, but, test your
    own faith that you might come
    to know Him and never perish.

    That's my hope...
