Video: Syrian Soldiers Massacre Civilians in Deraa

Video here.

This is a very nasty video. Extreme viewer discretion is advised. It shows Syrian forces on a rooftop in Der’a in the South of Syria, where the rebellion began. They are standing among a group of civilians, who have all been killed by the soldiers. Many of them have head shots, and the footage is very gruesome (Ever seen half a guy’s head blown off?).

The soldiers are apparently all Allawi from a special brigade led by the President’s brother, sent because the regime was not sure whether or not the regular army was down for the job. But this special brigade is all Allawi and very loyal to the regime, so they are down for about anything. The soldiers do have Allawi accents. The soldiers are joking about the dead bodies, posing with them, etc.

The men were bringing food to the city or the fighters in the city after the city was blocked off. Apparently the food was mistaken for weapons and this is why the men were killed. However, the head shots suggest execution at close range. If they were only bringing food, why execute them? This is a pretty serious crime on the part of the regime.

Exciting video, you can hear the sounds of battle – gunfire, etc. in the background.

  1. I believe perhaps 19th, early 20th century history might teach the Alawites they should retain power or prepare to be oppressed. Whether that would still hold true, not sure.
    If I’m not mistaken, in order to be ruled within Islam and Shiism, some Alawi “clergy’ agreed to suppress key elements of original Alawi doctrine, so some of the pre-existing fricton might not prevail.
