An excellent peice by Wissam Al Jazairy … For non Arabs, this is a map of Occupied Palestine (Israel) and it shows “Qusayr” as the capital of Israel with the insignia of Hezbullah in the top left corner.
Hezbullah is currently leading an attack against the people of Qusayr, which is in Homs, Syria.
THE BATTLE OF QUSAYR CONTINUES TO RAGE. ACTIVIST HADI AL ABDUALLAH IS ALMOST KILLED WHILE FILMING. Homs (Qusayr): May 20, 2013 - As Hezbullah and Assad’s Iranian backed forces continue to obliterate the town, the FSA, who have no similar back whatsoever continue to put up a fight. You can see at 3:45 as Hadi and his cameraman move from one building to another, a shell hits their position, missing them by a few seconds, yet killing at least one FSA fighter.
THERE WAS NOT MUCH DOCTORS COULD DO. THE SHRAPNEL PIERCED HER HEART AND KILLED HER. Aleppo (Al-Ashrafiyeh): May 18, 2013 - Nour Al Huda Hayek is 3 years old. Assad’s forces launched a shell at her home a shard of shrapnel pierced her chest and lodged itself into her heart, killing her.
This is what is happening to thousands of children across Syria.
AN INCIDIERY BOMB IS DROPPED ON THIS PLOT OF LAND IN ALEPPO. WHY? BECAUSE THEY CAN. Aleppo: May 18, 2013 - If they can’t bomb you out of your home, Assad’s forces will then attempt to burn you out of it. Watch as this bomb is dropped on these homes.
THIS IS THE LAST ‘SAFE HAVEN’ FOR THE PEOPLE IN THE CITY OF HOMS. THIS IS WHAT RESIDENTS CAN EXPECT. Homs (Al-Waer): May 17, 2013 - The residents of Wa’er in the city of Homs number anywhere from 500,000 to 700,000. They cram themselves into this tiny neighborhood as the rest of the city has been and still is, being obliterated by Assad’s forces. For months, Asasd’s forces did not enter Wa’er, which has no FSA, and let the residents live a miserable life.
Now however, Assad’s forces have had enough. They cannot bear the thought of these people living for one more day, so they begin their ‘usual’ campaign. Abduct, torture, execute and burn. It does not matter that the victims are men, women and children, it’s all the same to them. One of the victims above is a child.
***LEAKED VIDEO*** ASSAD’S FORCES TORTURE, HUMILIATE AND THEN EXECUTE AN OLD MAN. (Date & Location Unknown) - They already shot him in the leg. He’s injured badly. AS they hurl insults at him “I will f**k your mother you dog” they force the man to crawl to the side of the path where they can execute him. The Assad thug treats the elderly man as dog as he makes him crawl. The executioner even has the time to answer his phone, seemingly annoyed, and say “I’m busy, i’m busy, talk to you later” as casual as someone would say it if they were loading a shopping cart.
When the Assad thug finally decides to execute the man, with each shot he shouts “This is for Bashar Al Assad! BANG. This is for the Alawites! BANG”
These are Assad’s thugs. This is what they do. Are you not outraged?
WILL YOU HELP THIS LITTLE BOY? OR WILL YOU TURN YOUR HEAD AND CALL HIM A ‘TERRORIST’ AS ASSAD DID. Damascus (Douma): May 18, 2013 - His name is Mohamed Eid. He’s a 4 year old boy from Douma. His face was badly burned when Assad’s forces shelled his home. He’s in need of desperate medical attention and multiple surgeries to save what’s left of his eye-sight.
When (if) more details are available, I will post them regarding aid/donations dedicated to help this boy.
In the meantime, there are thousands of children just like Mohamed across Syria who need your help.

ABSOLUTELY TERRIFYING. THIS IS WHAT THE TOWN OF QUSAYR IS FACING AS WE SPEAK. Homs (Qusayr): May 19, 2013 - Listen to the sounds of shelling. That is what 50 shells per minute sounds like. Nasrallah’s mercenaries, backed by Assad’s forces and directed by the Iranian regime have literally gone ‘all out’ to crush this town. Qusayr, which is close to the Lebanese border, has about 25,000 residents today (used to be 40,00), and has lost some 2,000 people since Assad decided to attack the town.
Why Qusyar? Assad announced that he would obliterate and take the town. That’s why. Don’t be fooled by the ‘it’s strategic to the regime …etc”. That is not the reason he is destroying it. He’s doing it because he desperately needs to show his supporters and the world a ‘victory’. Which for Assad means to erase the town from the Earth.
This is why Assad wants to crush the town and the people in it.
Since Hezbullah, Assad and Iran are using conventional means to obliterate the town, the world has agreed that they can continue on with the largest mass murder of the Information Age.
A few of the martyrs as of this morning.
In addition to the barbaric shelling, locals have reported at least 15 airstrikes since last night.
FOR THE FEW RESIDENTS LEFT IN SRAQEB, LIFE IS MERELY A MISERABLE EXISTENCE UNDER ASSAD’S SHELLS. Idleb (Saraqeb): May 17, 2013 - The town is sandwiched between multiple Assad bases and checkpoints, who shell the town every single day. On other days the people face both shells and air-strikes. On a day like today, the shells manage to find the few remaining residents.
The routine is all too familiar. After the strike, people frantically gather the bodies of the dead and wounded and drive them to the nearest clinic.
EVEN IN DEATH, ASSAD’S FORCES WILL NOT ALLOW THEM TO REST IN PEACE. Aleppo (Salah Al Din): May 16, 2013 - They were shot by Asasd’s snipers weeks, maybe months ago. No one can go claim the bodies. if they try, Assad’s forces will ensure they join the bodies on the street floor.
SHE BEGS FOR HELP. SHE SCREAMS AT THE TOP OF HER LUNGS. CALLING OUT TO HER CHILDREN UNDER THE RUBBLE. Idleb (Salqueen): May 17, 2013 - Her home, and those next to her where hit when Assad’s forces shelled her home. Her children are under the rubble. This is the fate of so many mothers across Syria each day.
10 people were confirmed dead in this strike alone. I do not know if her children are among the dead or not.
Here’s a scene of the aftermath, people attempt to pull bodies out from under the rubble.
IF THIS IS NOT BRAVERY, RESILIENCE AND THE AMAZING WILL OF THE HUMAN SPIRIT, THEN NOTHING IS. Homs (Qusayr): May 17, 2013 - This town is currently and unfortunately the epicenter of hell on Earth. Assad’s forces, combined with Hezbullah’s worst mercenaries and the Iranian regime’s forces have all descended on this town to crush it. The hell the people are enduring is unimaginable. It is beyond words to describe the courage these people have to dare to emerge form their homes to protest for their right to be free humans.
Towards the end of the video, Assad’s forces make them ‘pay’ for their audacity to protest, by shelling the actual protest.
THE TOWN OF YABROUD IS THE NEWEST VICTIM OF ASSAD’S AIR STRIKES. AN INSANE ARIEL ATTACK. Damascus (Yabroud): May 17, 2013 - Yabroud, a town with a small FSA presence and a very ethnically and religiously diverse population is the latest town to suffer from the arrival of Assad’s ‘Parachute Bombs’.
The town of Yabroud was (still is) a clear example of a self-governing society. Locals in the community have managed their own affairs since protesters peacefully ousted the Assad regime from the town.
This, above anything else was the reason why Yabroud was attacked yesterday. Out of plain, ugly and brutal spite. Nothing else.
This is what happens across Syria every single day. This was the aftermath of the strike, 15 people were killed.
An excellent and simple analysis by @Racanarchy on the town of Yabroud, the air strike and the futile attempt of finding a ‘political solution’ of the Assad Regime.
