SHE JUST MIGHT BE ONE OF THE ‘LUCKY ONES’. Aleppo (Al Bab): Nov 30, 2013 - On the first day, Assad’s airforce lobbed barrels of TNT onto the market of this town, killing 24 people, 4 of them children and two women. The next day, Assad’s airforce came back and lobbed another barrel of TNT onto the town, killing 26 people.
This girl is one of the victims. She is being pulled out from under the ruble of what used to be her home. I do not know if she survived or not.
Will Assad strike this town again today? Does anyone seem to care if he does?
THIS IS WHAT THE AFTERMATH OF AN ASSAD ‘BARREL BOMB’ EXPLOSION LOOKS LIKE. Aleppo (Qadi Asker): Nov 28, 2013 - A total of 11 people were killed when Assad’s forces dropped a barrel of TNT on this neighborhood in Aleppo. Among the dead are 4 four children and two women, one of whom were pregnant.
This is Assad. This is the hell his forces have turned Syria into.
This is a video of the barrel being tossed out the back of the helicopter. As you can see, it takes several long moments for it to reach the ground. This is why this weapon of choice from Assad is the most dreaded by people in Syria. The length of time it takes to fall is too short to run since the blast radius is so huge, yet it is more than enough time to contemplate your impending death.
THERE IS NO BREAK. THERE IS NO LULL. THIS IS WHAT SYRIA’S CHILDREN FACE EVERY SINGLE DAY. Damascus (Mleiha): Nov 22, 2013 - The town is shelled by Assad’s forces each and every single day. The boy at the start of the video is dead. Shrapnel piercing his head and killing him. The rest of the inured in the sparse clinic are also victims of the same attack.
ACTIVIST HADI ABDULLAH IS STRUCK BY SHRAPNEL FROM AN ASSAD FIGHTER JET. Homs: Nov 5, 2013 - One of the most recognizable activists in Syria, Hadi Al Abduallah has been covering the Syrian Revolution from Qusayr in Homs since the beginning. He was one of the last people to leave the town when the ultra-sectarian extremists, Hezbullah, occupied it.
Since then he has been covering the battle in the Homs and Qalamoun (Damascus) areas. In this video a piece of shrapnel hits him in the head as an Assad jet bombs their position.
***GRAPHIC*** PICKING OLIVES IN AN ORCHARD, THIS LITTLE BOY IS TORN APART BY ASSAD’S SHELLS. Homs (Houla): Oct 26, 2013 - With little to eat, many Syrians must find what they can from the land. Abdul Hakim Al Ali is just a boy, he was picking olives with his family when Assad’s forces shelled them. He was torn to shreds. The forces of the balst was so brutal, pieces of olive leaf are embedded in his body.
17 months after the Houla Massacre, where 100+ women and children were slaughtered by Assad’s forces, the children of Houla still live and die in fear.
A FATHER KISSES HIS CHILDREN ON THE FIRST DAY OF EID. HE KISSES THEM FOR THE VERY LAST TIME. Hama (Latamneh): Oct 15, 2013 - This is how this family ‘celebrated’ Eid. Three children from the same family all killed when Assad shelled their home. Their father, kisses each of his children for the last time time, tears streaming down his face, blood staining his skin.
This is what Assad does. This is what his forces swear to do to each and every single one of us. This is what his supporters cheer for every single day.
***GRAPHIC*** AN ENTIRE FAMILY IS GONE. THEY WERE GASSED, THEN STARVED AND FINALLY BOMBED. Damascus (Mleiha): Oct 14, 2013 - How much more context do you want me to add? What more is there to explain? This family has been living in utter misery for close to 3 years. They survived everything Assad threw at them. From Gas attacks, to daily shelling, to murderous raids and of course now, the starvation. Yet today, their luck ran out.
In the suburbs of Damascus some may call this family “lucky”. They all had their heads blown off together. The parents did not have to watch their child die. The boy did not have to become an orphan and starve.
Welcome to Syria. The way Assad always wanted it to be.
***GRAPHIC*** MORE CHILD CASUALTIES FROM ASSAD’S WAR AGAINST THE PEOPLE OF SYRIA. Daraa (Al-Mahata): Oct 12, 2013 - The youngest one is just a baby boy. He had his stomach sliced open. The girl next to him also had her stomach pierced while the boy above them appears to have had his head crushed.
All were killed when Assad’s forces shelled their homes.
WHAT DID YOU EAT FOR DINNER LAST NIGHT? THESE CHILDREN ATE NOTHING. THEN DIED. Damascus (Douma): Oct 11, 2013 - Qasem Barakat is 15 days old he was born into starvation and later died from it. He’s one of an increasing number of children in the suburbs of Damascus that are dying from malnutrition. There is no milk to feed him, so his parents had to watch him die like this.
Duaa Al Sheikh is 7 years old. She’s form Madamiyet, also in the suburbs of Damascus. She too died from malnutrition. Assad’s forces will not let anything into the suburbs, no food, no medicine, nothing. As the world cheers and congratulates themselves on “solving Syria” by destroying Assad’s chemical weapons, the cause of death and misery for the other 99% killed is still left, forgotten and unresolved.
***LEAKED*** WATCH AS THE “OTHER” EXTREMIST JIHADI TERRORISTS IN SYRIA EXECUTE SYRIANS. (Date & Location Unknown) - You are told that Al Qaida is in Syria. This is true. You are told they are executing prisoners, both civilians and fighters, this is true. The crimes committed by AQ in Syria have been documented and publicized by us first and foremost. The Assad regime only reports on it when it suits their propaganda machine. They do not report on these crimes out of their sudden change of heart and love for “human rights”
Now watch the video above. Watch the video that you will not see on your local news. You would not know it from watching mainstream media, but there is a far larger and far more destructive foreign extremist/jihadi movement in Syria and they are fighting for the Assad regime. They are made up of Hezbullah mercenaries, Iraqi teenagers and Iranian revolutionary guards. They number in the thousands and do as they please no just with impunity, but with the blessing of the Assad regime.
The video above shows members of Hezbullah pulling out injured Syrians, we might assume they are FSA freedom fighters, dragging them onto the floor and executing them at point blank range.
There will be no Human Rights Watch report. No world leader will talk about this video. No media organization will bother to cover it.
However, we Syrians will remember it. We will never forget our martyrs that fought to free us from the Assad regime.
