The killing in Syria will continue regardless of what the UN Security Council says, according to Swiss-based Syrian-Kurdish filmmaker and activist Mano Khalil.
The warning came as international pressure for an end to the violence intensified on Monday, with Bahrain and Kuwait joining Saudi Arabia in recalling their ambassadors to Syria.
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told Syrian President Bashar al-Assad by telephone on Saturday that he was alarmed by the escalating violence in Syria and demanded that Assad stop deploying the military against civilians.
This followed condemnation of the violent response to the five-month popular uprising from the 15-member UN security council earlier last week.
On Sunday, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, an absolute ruler like Assad, broke Arab silence, demanding an end to the bloodshed.
Protestors in the eastern city of Deir al-Zor said Syrian troops killed 65 people in a tank assault on Sunday, and 13 in villages in the central Houla Plain.
News agencies reported fresh shelling and gun fire had been heard in the besieged city on Monday. read more
Note to Muslim nations:
Follow the Holy Quran:
49:9 If two parties among the Believers fall into a quarrel, make ye peace between them: but if one of them transgresses Beyond bounds against the other, Then fight ye (all) against The one that transgresses Until it complies with The command of Allah; But if it complies, then Make peace between them With justice, and be fair; For Allah loves those Who are fair (and just).
