By all accounts, Assad has flagrantly violated the ceasefire agreement. Hama residents report daily attacks by Syrian forces since the ceasefire went into effect. Witnesses in Homs and other cities report that Syrian security forces resume attacks as soon as the UN observers depart. Assad’s security forces have even fired on demonstrators in the presence of UN observers. Nearly 70 people were killed on April 23 alone. The presence of international monitors has thus not effectively protected Syrian civilians.
