Syria has just joined the club of Yemen, Bahrain and Libya where the government forces have used significant violence to put down an uprising. The number of people killed in Deraa today has risen to 15, including six who died in a raid on the al-Omari mosque earlier today. The total death toll now stands at 22 and the uprising is now the biggest challenge to the Syrian government since Hafez al-Assad had to destroy Hama in 1982 to put down the Muslim Brotherhood.

And as AP reports, this is spreading:

As the casualties mounted, people from the nearby villages of Inkhil, Jasim, Khirbet Ghazaleh and al-Harrah tried to march on Deraa Wednesday night but security forces opened fire as they approached, the activist said. It was not immediately clear if there were more deaths or injuries.

Democracy activists used social-networking sites to call for massive demonstrations across the country on Friday, a day they dubbed “Dignity Friday.”

The Reform Party of Syria also sent out a video of a crowd in Deraa chanting, among other things, “No Hezbollah and No Iran.” The Assad regime is trembling.
