Syrian army airdrops troops, deploys tanks in southern town near Iraq border

"The Syrian army airdropped troops by helicopter and deployed tanks around a town near the border with Iraq on Sunday after thousands of pro-democracy protesters, buoyed up by defections among security forces, demonstrated against President Bashar Al Assad’s regime, activists said.

President Assad’s regime has deployed army troops across the country in an attempt to suppress protests trying to end his rule. Activists said divisions are growing within army ranks over the bloody response to demonstrations"
