On this glorious day we were guarding at night and we stayed awake all night because of the attack on the infantry. At night we felt as if we were in a real war, we stayed awake for 33 hours and we went back to our shelters at seven in the morning. We washed our faces and I shaved my beard and then we went to have breakfast. After breakfast we had a lecture about weapons.
At 1:00pm we heard heavy shooting around the the school, clashes happened between us and the rebels who set up an ambush for an officer in the infantry school.
There were three officers in the car with different posts. They all died.
One of them was giving us lessons.
The officers who died were: The Colonel Muhammad Alhelo, the Colonel Salama Hamood, (the third one, only his last name is visible, which is Al Qady)
In the evening we mobilized because there was a report on Al-Jazeera and Al-arabia saying that the FSA controlled the Infantry. And of course they didn't, they wish they could, we are Assad's men. and we stayed awake all night.

At 6:15 shooting started heavily toward our location from the cement factory.
We all mobilized and the food car was giving us food, and then it went to the free area and it had to pass by the Juvenile prison which is next to the cement factory.
We stayed mobilized until the sniping stopped and the food car left the place and the danger was gone, thank God. It seems like we are going to live.
Wednesday 5/9
That difficult night is gone in a good way and things became calm after approximately an hour, we stayed awake all night especially after the fall of mortars near the school.
When the sun started to rise, the sniper started to shoot, which is annoying because it limits our movements. He was sniping from the cement factory toward us.
Thank God that he doesn't have a night telescope so he can't target us at night.
Here I am at 6:30 after I called my sister Laila on the phone and told her that am not in the infantry school, and she's the only one who knows that.
