Syria Releases 755 arrested civilians during Popular Uprising

Syrian armed forces have freed 755 people, captured during the nine-month-old violent protests against President Bashar al-Assad, says Syrian state TV.

Authorities freed the prisoners who were arrested “in recent incidents” but their “hands were not stained with blood”, a report said.

But the reasons of their arrests are not mentioned in the detainees’ release news. Moreover, it does not disclose where the protesters were arrested.

According to the UN, more than 14,000 people are in detention and 5,000 have been killed during the nine-month-old uprising in Syria.

Arab League monitors arrived in the country on Monday with a mission to determine if Assad is keeping his promise to implement a peace plan to end his military crackdown on nine months of popular uprising.

Bloody clashes between Syrian army troops and protesters continue in Homs that gives the picture of a war hit city.
