ANOTHER CHILD IS MURDERED BY THE BRUTAL ASSAD REGIME. Hama (Al Zakaa): May 20, 2013 - Mustapha Al Hawi was killed when Assad’s forces shelled his home. He’s one of almost 10,000 children that Assad’s forces have killed since March 2011.
May 10th & 11th, 2013 - The shelling began as always, yet this time the intensity was like none other before, Assad’s forces used such brutal fire power against the people of this town that residents began to jump in the the river Assi just to escape the besieged town.
This is what the people were trying to avoid. A fate like this. For the dead in the back of this pickup, it was too late for them. Assad’s shells found them. There are 10 people in the back of this truck alone.
Residents fleeing the town just before they cross the river scream to the camera “Where are you Arabs! Where are you!“
They use makeshift boats and even swim/wade across the river to escape Assad’s forces.
HUNDREDS OF YEARS AGO, THEY STILL USED BRIDGES TO CROSS THIS RIVER. NOT TODAY. Hama (Halfaya): May 10, 2013 - The residents of Halfaya are trying to escape Assad’s forces in this town so they must leave the only way possible, by crossing the Assi River.
Assad has made every single aspect of everyone’s lives in Syria miserable. Every single one.
ASSAD WANTS EVERY CHILD IN SYRIA TO LOOK LIKE THIS. JUST SO HE CAN HOLD ON FOR ONE MORE DAY. Hama (Halfaya): May 10, 2013 - Mohamed Ahmed Al Alaawi was killed when Assad’s forces shelled his home. He survived the initial strike, as we can clearly see bandages (and a wooden plank used to set one of his legs). However the wounds were too severe, the clinic not adequate enough.
April 19, 2013 - The people of Syria come out yet again across the country for another Friday of protests against the Assad regime. They brave the bombings, the massacres, the raids and the misery to protest. This Friday was named “Iran & Hezbullah Will Fall With Assad”
As always, a large and lively protest in Bustan Al Qasr
SHE WAS KILLED BY ASSAD’S FORCES ALONG WITH HER TWO CHILDREN. Hama (Morek): Apr 11, 2013 - Taking refuge in their home was of no use. Assad’s shells still found them. There was nothing she could do to protect her two little boys.
Another boy can be seen in the video, he too was killed by the shelling … so was the man brought in on a stretcher a few moments later.
This is what daily life … or more appropriate, death, is like for Syrians every single day.
The mother and her children are prepared for burial.
***LEAKED VIDEO*** STOPPED AT AN ASSAD CHECKPOINT, THIS MAN IS BEING ‘QESTIONED’ BY ASSAD’S THUGS. Hama (Date Unknown): This is considered ‘usual’ in Syria. to be stopped at an Assadist checkpoint and beaten and tortured senselessly. They laugh, humiliate and insult the man as they beat him. This is considered ‘light’ torture in Syria … one that you and I would consider unbearable … but is nothing compared to the real horrors of what happens all across the country.
You can clearly see the tool box on the floor next to the man. If they have no ‘use’ for him they may just execute him or let him go. Or they may decide to use the tools in the box to have ‘more fun’.
You still dare ask why Syrians rose up against this?
DO YOU HAVE APPROXIMATELY 8 SECONDS TO SPARE THIS YOUNG TEENAGER? Hama (Karnaz): Apr 7, 2013 - Ahmad Muwafaq Hamsho is 16 years old. He was killed by Assad’s forces in his hometown. He was killed out of simple and ugly spite. No other reason. Even though we only have eight short seconds to mourn him, we do so nonetheless … each and every martyr will be remembered, none will be forgotten.
Apr 5, 2013 - This friday was dubbed the ‘Friday of Refugees’ dedicated to the millions of internally displaced people and the millions of Syrian refugees in neighboring countries. Despite Assad’s worst, the brutal bombings, raids and massacres and despite the miserable living conditions for most people in the country, they still come out to protest for an end to the Assad regime.

HIS LITTLE BODY COULD NOT WITHSTAND THE ATTACK, HE DIED TWO DAYS LATER. Hama (Al-Hiwaijeh) March 26, 2013 - Little Mohamed Al Jassim is only 2 years old. That did not stop Assad’s forces from attacking his home with rockets. In this tiny village there was no adequate medical treatment for him, so he died a brutal death … a death no human should have to suffer, much less a toddler.
***HEARTBREAKING*** A LITTLE BOY ASKS BASHAR AL ASSAD “WHAT DID WE DO TO YOU?” Hama (Kafrnaboudeh): Mar 24, 2013 - He asks Assad this because the boy now lives out in the open. His home destroyed, his loved ones murdered, his life destroyed by a tyrant who would rather see every last Syrian dead before he relinquishes his rule.
