Syrian Rebels Hang Shi'ite Child After Killing Family
Wed, August 8, 2012
Brutal pictures emerged from Syria of a small Shi’ite child who was hanged by rebel forces after his entire family had been murdered.
The pictures were published by a human rights activists reporting from Iraq. Iraq’s news website, Qanon, reported that the rebels attacked the family in the Seyede Zainab neighborhood of Damascus.
The brutality of the rebel forces have largely gone unreported in the Western media (see RadicalIslam’s related video, “Media Bias Muddies Waters in Syria”). However, in recent days, online videos have surfaced showing how the rebels deal with those they perceive as loyal to the regime.
Last week, a video of Syrian rebels executing 15 civilians in a pro-regime area of Aleppo on charges of supporting Assad was posted on YouTube.com. The 15 were all family members. The video showed most of them bloodied from beatings before they were lined up and shot in front of a local school.
Meanwhile, with Saudi Arabia supporting the Sunni rebels, a Saudi cleric, Mohammad al-Arifi, on his Twitter page, has instructed the rebels to continue in their tactics but to guard against the leakage of incriminating footage.
