Three soldiers were killed by Assad forces when trying to defect from the Syrian Army in Baba Amr, a district of Homs. Many soldiers of the Syrian Army defect because of the brutal crackdown the Assad regime has put on the Syrian people. They often times join the Free Syrian Army, an armed opposition group that pledges to protect the Syrian people until the Assad regime falls.
