Abu Zaid said in a telephone interview with Agence France Presse that new security and military enforcements entered the city.

He added that soldiers from the 5th Division defected and joined the opposition.

Meanwhile, dozens of Syrian dissidents in exile met Tuesday in Istanbul to demand that the Syrian government immediately stop the repression in their country and the implementation of serious reforms starting with the establishment of a multi-party regime.
