The neighborhood of Jouret Al Sheyah in Homs (Syria). Before and after Assad’s forces razed it to the ground for it’s residents ‘disobedience’ to the regime.
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.
Fortunately, Had i survived and is fine now.
***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.
SIBLING BONDING IN SYRIA. SHE WATCHES AS HER BROTHER TAKES HIS VERY LAST BREATHS. Homs (Al Ghanto): Sept 11, 2013 - Little Rafah is injured and laying on a gurney in a makeshift hospital in the town of Al Ghanto, just north of Homs city. Her home was shelled by Assad’s forces earlier and she was brought here along with her brother Muwafiq for treatment.
However, Muwafiq is not being treated. He is dying. The Russian shell that struck his home was too much for his body to handle. He lay gasping his final breaths a few feet form his sister. As he lay dying people in the room try to distract Rafah, they don’t want her to watch what is probably the last agonizing moments of her brothers life.
The video then cuts and we then see Muwafiq again. The activist on the other end of the camera does what so many like him have done tens of thousands of times in the last two years. He states the name of the deceased boy and the date.
This is what Rafah will remember for the rest of her life. That is, if she lives long enough in the hell that is Homs …
KIDNAPPED. BEATEN. TORTURED. EXECUTED. DUMPED IN THE RIVER. Homs (Al Dar Al Kabeer): Sept 15, 2013 - This is the fate that awaits thousands of Syrians in Assad’s prisons. This is the fate so many have endured for decades. This man was mercilessly tortured by Assad’s forces, blindfolded then executed and finally dumped in a river.
Of course you won’t see this reported by any news media outlet. The man is most likely from Homs and he has a beard. He is not from Assad’s tribe or sect nor is he a minority. Thus, his horrific death is “acceptable” and not worth reporting.

THE MOMENT A 2ND AIRSTRIKE HITS A CROWDED STREET MOMENTS AFTER THE INITIAL STRIKE. Homs (Rastan): Sept 3, 2013 - The overwhelming feeling of humans to help each-other in time of need is too great of an emotion to ignore. As is almost always the case, after an initial strike by Assad’s forces, locals rush to the scene in order to rescue the injured, knowing full well that Assad’s forces almost always attack the same position twice in order to kill as many people as possible. So is the case as you can clearly see.
It should be noted, that no ‘anti-war’ protester was outraged at this bombing. No so-called ‘leftist’ labeled this strike an atrocity. These people do not utter a word as Assad bombs Syrians every single day. Yet they fiend outrage at a yet to happen event.
YOU FORGOT ABOUT HOMS … AGAIN. THIS IS WHAT IS STILL HAPPENING. ALWAYS HAPPENING. Homs (Jouret Al Sheyah): Aug 29, 2013 - The shelling never stopped. The killing never ended. The suffering continued. Only you stopped watching. This is what Homs looked like this morning as Assad’s forces attempted to invade deeper into the city. Little to no support. Dwindling food supplies. Misery and fear. Yet the brave men and women of Homs refuse to be driven from their homes by a mixture of Assad’s ultra-sectarian ‘National Defense Forces’, Hezbullah militants and Iranian “advisor” mercenaries.
HE WAS ARMED AND DANGEROUS. SO ASSAD’S FORCES BLEW HIM TO PEICES. Homs (Talbiseh): Aug 12, 2013 - Khaled Abdul Latif Al Dhaher is just a little boy. The “arms” he had on him were plastic toys. The bombs used to kill him were real Russian munitions.
This is the “civil war” the world speaks of … Assad’s bombs vs Syria’s Children.
***GAPHIC*** ASSAD’S FORCE MURDER THIS LITTLE BOY IN COLD BLOOD. Homs (Talbiseh): Aug 1, 2013 - Little Mohamed Abdul Aziz was killed when Assad’s forces shelled his home. The force of the Russian weapon was so brutal that it ripped open his stomach and shattered his skull.
This is how parents across Syria see their children for the very last time.
ASSAD’S FORCES KILL AT LEAST 13 PEOPLE IN THE LARGEST REFUGEE “HAVEN” IN HOMS. Homs (Wa’er): Aug 1, 2013 - There are more than 600,000 people crammed into this neighborhood. They are all refugees from across Homs. There is no local FSA unit to protect them. They are literally imprisoned by the Assad regime and must endure this hell as they suffer from the lack of food, medicine and basic supplies.
A 5 month old baby boy is now an orphan. He is the only survivor after 7 of his family members were killed when Assad shelled their home in Tal Maareh, Homs (Syria).
Here is a video of the baby boy.
This is his family. Was his family.
Here is the video of his family being prepared for burial.
