Today, we went out in a large crowd celebrating and chanting with victory the departure of the tyrant Saleh, "Oh Jazeera Oh Suhail, Ali ran in the middle of the night". The march started from the new Square, Victory Square, towards Jamal St, through Bab Mosa and reaching the burnt Freedom Square. As soon as we got there, they bombed us from Al-Thawra Hospital that the Republican Guards have transfered to a military base. They used heavy cannon bombardment and during the bombing, there were some clashes with gunmen which resulted in the death of two youths and an injury of others. One of the shells fell on one of the houses and three children were hurt, 2 girls and a boy. I was a part of the medical crew team. The older girl was 7 years old and she was injured from the back side of her loin, a surgery was performed on her. The second girl is 6 years old and she was injured by shrapnels in the head. The boy was 4 years old and was injured in his shoulder.
