Syrian villagers: "Our only hope now is with our army."

"... Around 150 of Kassab’s residents have taken shelter in the Armenian Church in Latakia. Mattresses are rolled out on the floor. A stern-looking Hafez al-Assad, the former Syrian president and Bashar’s father, looks down from one wall, while a serious photo of Bashar hangs from another."We were used to hearing the sounds of gun-fire and rockets, but it was from a distance. Now it was very close. I was asleep and the sound woke me up. First I couldn’t believe what happened, because I didn’t expect it," 20-year old Rafi Kilaghbian said. "We will stay here until we can go back to Kassab. Our only hope now is with our army."
