Syria: Civilians Come Under Fire From Rebels as they beg reporters to tell the "Truth"

We knew what was coming and so wore flak jackets and helmets. The demonstrators knew what was coming, had no protection, and still walked straight into the line of fire.

The demonstrators were predominantly Syrian Palestinians, many from the Yarmouk district of Damascus who had fled when it was taken over by opposition forces eight months ago.

Some screamed at us: "Please tell the world the truth! We don't want the fighters here, we want the army to kill them!"
