Russia said on Wednesday that the U.N. Security Council should not consider new measures to resolve the crisis in Syria at this point and signaled it would block any effort to authorize military intervention as China reiterated its opposition to military intervention or regime change in Syria.

The warnings came after the French President Francois Hollande said military intervention was not ruled out provided it was backed by the Security Council, and Germany said it would push for “new engagement” by the council on Syria, according to Reuters.
The White House remains opposed to military action in Syria, despite the massacre of more than 100 Syrian villagers over the weekend that prompted calls for a strong international response.
While the massacre is not likely to galvanise a military assault like last year’s campaign in Libya to oust Muammar Gaddafi, it did provoke strong global condemnation. The US joined more than a dozen nations on Tuesday in expelling Syrian diplomats.

The uprising in Syria is an on-going internal violent conflict. The Syrian government deployed the state military forces to quell the uprising, and several cities were besieged. According to witness, their commanders immediately executed soldiers who refused to open fire on civilians.
During 2011, civilians and army defectors formed fighting units, which began an insurgency campaign against the state military forces. Insurgents unified under the “free Syrian Army and are fighting in an increasingly organized teams, while the civilian component of the armed opposition lacked an organized leadership so far, but it is on the edge of a crackdown by declaring northern Syria as liberated zone controlled and ruled by the people of more then 25 cities and towns of northern Syria which is situated along with Turkish-Syrian borderline. Reportedly the Syrian government denied reports of defections, and blamed “armed gangs” for causing trouble in the country.
According to various sources, including the United Nations, up to 11,000 people have been killed, primarily protesters but also including over 3,500 armed fighters. According to the Syrian government, some 6,400 people, including 2,500 members of the security forces, more then 800 insurgents and more then 3,000 civilians, have been killed in fighting with what they call as “armed terrorist groups”.
Recently UN reported that over 400 children have been killed. Syria’s government denies it naming claims from UN officials as based on false news reports that are originated and invented by the opposition groups. Furthermore over 600 detainees and political prisoners have died under the torture. Over 400 children have been reportedly arrested and tortured in Syrian prisons.
Uprisings in Syria are part of the wider Arab Spring, a wave of upheaval throughout the Arab World. Public demonstrations across Syria began on January 26, 2011 and developed into a natio
nwide uprising. Protesters in Daara in far southern Syria demanded the resignation of President Bashar Al-Assad, to overthrow his government and an end of nearly five decades of Ba’ath Party rule.
On Friday, 108 people were killed and 300 were injured in a massacre in Syria that sparked the international outrage. The UN Security Council strongly condemned the Syrian government for using artillery in a massacre in which at least 108 were killed and 300 others injured. UN officials told an emergency Security Council meeting on the slaughter in Houla that the dead included at least 49 children.
Russia, Syria’s main ally, signed up to the Security Council statement which “condemned in the strongest possible terms” the killings in the village near the protest city of Homs.
The statement said the deaths had been confirmed by UN observers and were the result of “attacks that involved a series of government artillery and tank shelling on residential neighbourhood.”
Condemnation has also poured in from the United States, Britain, France and Germany. Arab League foreign ministers are to hold their own emergency meeting on the crisis.
In Istanbul, exiled opposition head Burhan Ghalioun on Sunday called for a “battle of Liberation and dignity” against Al-Assad killing forces until the United Nations allows an international military intervention.
The Free Syrian Army (FSA) warned that unless the international community took concrete action it would no longer be bound by Annan’s peace plan.
Fierce fighting between regime troops and rebels has erupted near Damascus and in Homs province, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says, while reporting nine more people have been killed across Syria.
The Britain-based watchdog said that five people were killed on Wednesday in the Damascus suburb of Douma, a hotbed of anti-regime sentiment, but could give no further details. “No information was available yet on whether they were rebels or civilians,” Rami Abdel Rahman, the head of the watchdog, told AFP.
The Syrian bloody edge of Al-Assad is keep going in Syria as recently state army has been shelling several cities and townships in northern countryside of Syria.
