Snipers intermittently shot into the Syrian city of Deraa on Wednesday, a witness told CNN, adding that the situation is "worsening day after day."

Syrian opposition group the National Initiative for Change called for democracy that will "safeguard the nation from falling into a period of violence, chaos and civil war." The group said that its "massive grassroots revolution" will break Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime, unless he makes democratic reforms, AP reported.
