"We need help! Our staff is entirely overwhelmed. They are shooting at people's heads. Not at the legs. People are having their brains blown out," a distraught Dr Ghassan said, describing the chaos at the hospital as something close to a war zone."

Thanks for this thread DragoonPK. I've been following the protests since the beginning thanks to this. I wish I could do something to help.
It never ceases to amaze me how dictatorships try to win back the people with violence. I don't get it, it's like they're digging themselves a deeper hole.
Agreed, and I think it's absolutely awesome that we have someone like you who can give us first hand information on what's happening.

Man vs Army, is this how low our gov has reached to?

I'm just waiting to see what kind of propaganda the government is going to use to Justify what they did...
No source right now, but I believe their official statement was that the violence was "regrettable" but necessary to keep the peace, or some other such bs.
Stay safe brother, and thanks for keeping this updated. I wish more of the general public knew what is going on in the middle east (id honestly say that <50% that Ive talked to have any idea at all that anything is going on, ive heard similar figures quoted at large). Egypt is pretty much the only thing anyone seems to have heard about. Im talking to people about it constantly trying to raise awareness.
