Syrian security forces killed two civilians when they opened fire on protesters in the eastern city of Deir Ezzor on Thursday, said Abdel Karim Rihawi of the Syrian League of Human Rights.

At least five more people were wounded in the shooting, Rihawi said. "The city is tense and residents are observing a general strike," he added.

The League called for cities throughout the country to strike on Thursday, in a message posted on Facebook page Syrian Revolution 2011, a driving force behind almost four months of protests against President Bashar al-Assad's regime.
