Watch Syrian soldiers beat an unarmed protester:


Human rights activist Mustafa Osso claimed that government agents tried to break up a rally attended by 2,000 students at the university campus in the city of Aleppo on Tuesday. According to Osso, the agents chased the students all the way to their dorms and beat them severely.


Recently there have been many reports of demonstrations at the Aleppo University against Assad's cruel regime. Osso recalled another incident in which Syrian security forces dispersed a protest of 3,000 people in the city of Homs.


Some Syrian-based human rights organizations claimed Assad's violent oppression has cost the lives of at least 850 people since the national uprising began in March.


The common grave Assad doesn't want you to see:


Meanwhile, Syrian officials have denied the existence of a mass grave discovered near the city of Daraa.


"The reports of a common grave in Daraa are completely false," said Syrian Interior Minister on national television. He added that these reports are part of an "incitement campaign" against Syria.


Daraa residents said Monday they were able to take 13 bodies out of the grave, bodies of protesters who were killed by Syrian security forces. According to the residents, they found the body of a 62-year-old man and four of his children. The rest of the bodies remained unidentified.


The National Organization for Human Rights in Syria reported that the army has set up a perimeter around the area of the mass grave to prevent people from seeking the bodies.


The Syrian opposition has uploaded an internet video documenting Syrian soldiers abusing a protester. In the video they are beating the demonstrator and humiliating him. It is unclear where the video was shot.
