These images are form the town of Al Nabek in the Qalamoun are of Syria, near Damascus. The first photo shows the bodies of seven children. They were massacred by one of Assad’s proxy militias, an ultra-sectarian Iraqi group named “Liwa Zulfaqar” and led by an Iraqi named Abu Fahad Al Jibouri. The children were killed in the town then sent to a nearby town named Yabroud to show the locals that they are next.
The last photo shows Abu Fahad Al Jibouri himself as he leads an old man, a citizen of Al Nabek, in order to execute him, which he does as you can see in the photo.
On Friday, Decemeber 6th in the town of Al Nabek, at least 58 people were slaughtered by this militia. 48 of the dead are women and children.
Just to be clear. The Assad regime sent an ultra-sectarian, extremist Iraqi militia into the town of Al Nabek to massacre Syrian women and children. This is what “our government” is doing to us. They ran out of Syrians to kill us, so they have now contracted out massacres to foreign militias.
A girl sleeps on the streets of Damascus, Syria. Thousands of newly homeless have streamed into the center of Damascus as Assad’s forces destroyed not only their homes, but entire neighborhoods and town’s in the suburbs.
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?
***GRAPHIC*** SHORTLY AFTER AN ASSAD AIRSTRIKE, THIS LITTLE GIRL IS PULLED FROM THE RUBBLE. Idleb (Sarmeen): Nov 30, 2013 - The top half of her head was blown off in the strike, exposing her brains and killing her. Towards the end of the video you can hear a clear scream, the scream only a mother could let out at the sight of their child in such a state.
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.
WHILE BEING INTERVIEWED ABOUT ASSAD’S WAR AGAINT THEM, THESE KID ARE SHELLED. Damascus (Jobar): Nov 23, 2013 - It’s sick irony that as these kids are being interview by a pair of activists about life under constant bombardment from Assad’s forces, that they are then shelled …. by Assad’s forces live on camera.
Thankfully no one is killed or even injured. These children are so used to the daily violence against them they laugh off the strike.
THE FORCED STARVATION OF SYRIA’S CHILDREN CONTINUES UNABATED BY ASSAD’S FORCES. Damascus (Suburbs): Nov 23, 2013 - The boy above, whos name is unmentioned, died due to several reasons in the suburb of Harasta, all related to the siege by Assad’s forces. He needed an incubator, there was none. He needed food and nourishment, there was none. He needed further urgent medical care, there was none.
Below is Ahmed Al Lakha, he is barely 6 months old and died in Douma from the lack of necessary medical care needed to allow him to live.
Below is another photo of Ahmed along with a newborn baby girl. She also died, however she only lived for a few weeks, when she was born she was already malnourished. There was little doctors could do to save here as there is no food, nor medical care.
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.
A FEW OF THE MORE THAN TWO DOZEN CHILDREN KILLED BY ASSAD IN THE LAST THREE DAYS.
The girl above is Reem Al Mohamed, she’s from Latamneh in Hama. She was killed on Oct 30th by an airstrike from Assad’s helicopter gunships. She’s 2 years old.
The boy below has no identification on him. Shrapnel from a shell fired by Assad’s forces was lodged into his heart and killed him in the suburbs of Hama on October 28th. His parents may never know what happened to him as locals will have no choice but to bury him since no functioning morgue is there. Maybe they will watch this video.
Another boy, Mustapha Khalaf in Deir Ezzor was killed by Assad’s forces when they shelled his home on October 29th. The force was so severe it blew his arm off.
DONT’ BLINK. TANK VS. CAMERA. Damascus (Jobar): Oct 30, 2013 - A typical scene in the suburbs of Damascus. An Assadist tank stops dead in it’s tracks to hunt it’s prey. The Syrian. Watch as the shell comes straight at the camera.
THEY ATTEMPT THE ‘CROSSING OF DEATH’ YET ONLY THE MOTHER SURVIVES. HER LITTLE BOY IS SHOT DEAD. Aleppo (Bustan Al Qasr): Oct 29, 2013 - Assad’s forces kept both of them in their sights as they made the crossing from Assad regime territory to liberated territory. They shot the boy dead, maybe they intended to kill his mother too, or maybe, as with many snipers, they “only” injured her so that she can live in agony at the loss of her little son for the rest of her life.
All that bystanders can do is load the mother and boy onto vegetable carts and take them to the nearest makeshift clinic.
Another person is sniped to death by Assad’s forces in Aleppo. This man is shot then left for a few moments. He’s confused as the men filming him try and urge him to come to them. It’s too late though, Assad’s snipers put two bullets into his chest in front of your eyes.
This is how this city, now swelled to a few million people due to the influx of refugees, must operate, dodging the bullets of Assad’s snipers:
***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.
