Despite Ceasefire Promises, Clashes in Syria Continue (Photo- BBC Video)
Syrian activist Omar al-Khani talks with Marco Werman from Damascus about the increasing militarization of the city and the resilience of the Syrian opposition.
Al-Khani says the Syrian capital is full of checkpoints, with armed forces on the main squares and the back streets.
He says the opposition to the Syrian regime in Damascus remains in tact, and prepared to take risks.
"Now is time to make an act you know, to stop hiding and say that we are here," Al-Khani says. "People are dying and we have to stop it. We have to do something. To sympathize with this revolution is not enough. You have to do an act to support these people who are asking for their freedom."
