The killing occurred in Homs neighborhood of Karm al Zaytoun, according to the Local Coordination Committees of Syria, an opposition activist network.”
According to Huffington post, describing the same massacre,”Those numbers include 44 people who were ‘executed’, the opposition group said. It added that 20 of the dead belonged to a single family. The deaths were said to be ‘reprisal killings’. “
Louay Sakka, SEO board member, said,”Footage of this massacre were posted on several Syrian revolution sites and Facebook pages, it is extremely graphic. Watching the video and photos of the victims, left us speechless. It is systematic slaughtering of people in Homs, targeting all ages and both women and men. It provoked immense pain to see children and women slaughtered, with all the world watching and not taking the action to help. By this time of the Syrian uprising against the tyrannical Assad regime, it becomes apparent that, without international community plan to protect civilians, Assad regime will commit more atrocities, and the world will witness more appalling massacres.”
