THE PEOPLE OF SYRIA HAVE BECOME EXPERTS IN RESCUING PEOPLE FROM ASSAD’S SNIPERS. Damascus (Qaboun): Apr 17, 2013 - Yet another person lay in the street, shot by Assad’s snipers. I do not know if he is alive or not, but that does not matter to the people of Qaboun, they will do anything it takes to rescue the man and retrieve his body.
Apr 14, 2013 - Assad’s forces launched a ferocious attack on this suburb of Damascus. Their target were these children below. All 10 of them.
Children are pulled out from under the rubble … they’re dead.
This is heartbreaking. A father say farewell to his daughter he lays among the 10 other dead children.
A badly wounded little boy is transferred in the back of a pickup from the scene of the attack to a makeshift clinic. Apparently he died a few short moments after this video was taken. His last moment on Earth were agonizing, terrifying and horrific.
THE YOUNGEST MARTYR IN THE TOWN OF QABOUN, A LITTLE BABY GIRL. Damascus (Qaboun): Mar 20, 2013 - Her name is Rahaf Kahlawi. She’s just an infant, yet that did not stop Assad’s forces from shelling her home and killing her. The activists in the video claim that she is the town’s youngest martyr.
As we have seen across Syria, Assad’s forces do not even ‘wait’ for children to be born anymore to kill them, they murder them in their mother’s womb.
SHE MANAGED TO LIVE FOR ONE MORE DAY … BYT THEN SHE DIED. Damascus (Qaboun): Feb 26, 2013 - Little Aya Al-Sibainy held on for dear life, but the wounds were too severe and the medical treatment too poor to save her. She did not have a chance in the face of Assad’s shells that rained down on her home.
NO MARTYR WILL BE LEFT BEHIND. NO SOUL WILL BE FORGOTTEN. Damascus (Qaboun): Feb 23, 2013 - Assad’s forces shot the driver dead … why? Because they could. Because they wanted to. Locals then risk their lives to take him out of the truck and drag him away. They are doing this to ensure that he has a proper funeral, to ensure his family and friends know what happened to him.
***VERY GRAPHIC*** THEY WERE ABDUCTED. BEATEN. THEN BLUDGEONED TO DEATH BY ASSAD’S FORCES. Damascus (Qaboun): Jan 28, 2013 - Their skulls were smashed in with axes and hammers. This was their execution. This was their final moments on Earth. Living in the suburbs of Damascus, residents have come to accept the fact that one day, they too will end up like these men. For in the suburbs, it’s only a question of when Assad’s forces will come and massacre, not a question of ‘if’.
If you are ‘lucky’ you will die from an artillery shell or by an air-strike, the wieght of your house should crush you instantly, although this does not always happen and you suffer for hours, maybe even days from your injuries that cannot be treated, then die.
The ‘unlucky’ ones are people like these men and thousands of others that have been documented just like them. Assad’s forces abducted them with the intent to execute them, but not with a bullet to the head, that’s just evil, but by smashing their skulls repeatedly until they die or are close to death … I can’t find a word to describe that, you will have to have Bashar Al Assad explain the feeling to you to understand.
***MASSACRE*** ABDUCTED. HANDS TIED. SHOT IN THE HEAD. DUMPED ON THE ROAD. ASSAD’S FORCES HALLMARK EXECUTION. Damascus (Qaboun): Nov 3, 2012 - On any given day of the week in the suburbs of Damascus, Assad’s forces will raid one of the countless towns and villages and randomly stop any person they wish and execute them on the spot.
Human life means nothing to Assad, his supporters, and apparently the rest of the world. You see a very graphic video of dead bodies. We see martyrs who had families, dreams and aspirations to live life freely just as any human being does on this Earth. We are more than just numbers. Every martyr will be documented and mourned. None will be forgotten.
***GRAPHIC*** ASSAD’S FORCES ROUND-UP AND EXECUTE 46 MEN ON THE SPOT. Damascus (Qaboun): Aug 22, 2012 - They were taken from wherever they found them. On the street, in their homes, in shops. Then Assad’s forces lined them up and began executing them one by one.
Where is the outrage? Where are the news reports? Where is the ‘analysis’? … these martyrs are only numbers to the outside world. Not worth reporting about.
This is how the bodies were discovered (extremely graphic) here and here.
***GRAPHIC*** THEY WERE SLAUGHTERED WHERE THEY LAY. ASSAD’S FORCES HAVE NO MERCY. Damascus (Qaboun): Aug 20, 2012 - They have no souls. They have no compassion. They have no emotion. They feel nothing. For it takes nothing for them to ‘simply’ slaughter a group of Syrians - fellow brothers and sisters. Assad’s forces and supporters have vowed to kill everyone in Syria that does not agree with their way of life - a life under tyranny and oppression.
Two of the victims … a little boy and a little girl (video here)
12 MEN, ALL UNIDENTIFIED ARE EXECUTED IN COLD BLOOD BY ASSADS FORCES. THEIR BODIES DUMPED IN THIS HOME. Damascus (Qaboun): July 24, 2012 - The cameraman is beside himself in grief. He starts to film the first 4 bodies of the men laying in the street when a fifth is brought out. He states that none have any ID’s on them as Assad’s forces took them in order to make it that much more miserable and diifcult to find the next of kin.
The cameraman then attempts to enter one of the buildings bey following the blood stains when the smell of death overwhelms him as he starts dry-heaving and rushes out. He then enters another building to find two more bodies in a hallway. Both men shot in the head at point-blank range. He then enters another room where another 5 men are piled on top of each other, each one lay in the place where they were executed.
Emotions overwhelm him as he starts crying, asking God to help them…
A MASSACRE IN EVERY RESPECT - ASSAD’S FORCES ENTER THEIR HOME AND KILL EACH MAN RIGHT WHERE THEY WERE STANDING. Damascus (Qaboun): July 22, 2012 - Assad’s forces take ‘revenge’ on the people of Syria for demanding freedom by raiding random homes, attacking the occupants, torturing them, then executing them. Why? Because although Assad’s days are numbered, they promised to ‘burn the country’ if their leader is removed …
Two more bodies are found in the street. Bothe men executed.
***GRAPHIC*** ASSAD’S GANGS ARE GOING HOUSE TO HOUSE IN QABOUN AND SLAUGHTERING IT’S RESIDENTS. Damascus (Qaboun): July 20, 2012 - They go door to door, subdue the residents of each home, tie their hands, then slit their throats. They take ‘revenge’ on ordinary Syrians because they seek to live in a free and just world instead of under the tyranny of Bashar Al Assad.
BLIND-FOLDED AND BEATEN - MOVED FROM ONE AGENCT TO THE NEXT … MOST LIKELY NEVER TO BE SEEN AGAIN ALIVE. Qaboun (Damascus) Nov 11, 2011 - So is that fate of this man, just like thousands of others. Arrrested (kidnapped) by Bashar Loyalist Forces for either protesting or for no apparent reason, he is taken from car to car, transferred from one security agency to another by armed thugs with pump-action shotguns and machine guns.
May god have mercy on this poor man’s soul - his ordeal will be excruciating.
