233 Members of Syria Ba'ath Party Quit

Earlier 30 members had resigned from the restive city of Banias in northwest Syria. Another 203 of them resigned from the province of Deraa and surrounding region on Wednesday, taking the total number to 233, AFP reported.

The lawmakers said in a signed statement that they have resigned to protest the killing of pro-reform demonstrators across the country.

The opposition claim that at least 400 people have been killed since protests first began in Syria in the second half of March. It accuses the government of being behind the killings.

But Syrian authorities have blamed armed groups and foreign elements for the violence.

To suffice their claim, Damascus announced on Wednesday that its security forces have arrested a number of members of an armed terrorist group in Daraa.

The detainees have confessed to receiving money to kill government forces and cause chaos in the city.

According to a military source, large amounts of weapons, including pistols, hand grenades and automatic rifles, were seized from the group.

Damascus has repeatedly denied allegations that security forces were responsible for the death of protesters, saying security forces have been given clear instructions not to hurt civilians.
