A space to share stuff I like mostly about the Middle East, human rights and religion.

 

Children in Jobar, eastern Damascus, talk about living under shelling when a shell lands next to them (not graphic).

Among the 50+ people killed, 34 of the dead are children.

Heartbreaking account from children living in Homs, Syria … 

If this doesn’t make you  cry, you have no heart

****MASSACRE*** THIS IS AS HORRIBLE AS IT COMES. ASSAD’S FORCES SHELL A BUSY STREET. Aleppo (Bustan Al Qasr): Dec 3, 2012 - The scene is horrific by any measure, even when comparing it to other massacres in Syria, which is now not only a daily occurrence, but one that happens several times a day across the entire country.

As the cameraman approaches the scene we see body after body of people on the ground. Some are dead, some are dying and some are injured. Chaos ensues as locals try to help the injured. There are no ambulances, fire trucks, police, paramedics or rescue crews coming. Assad forbids them.

As we see more blood and more body and more limbs we come across a man who is still alive, he rolls from his back to his stomach on top of broken glass, he raises his hands in the air and almost attempt to get up, he is probably deep in shock and does not realize that both of his legs have been blown off. With the lack of proper medical facilities in Aleppo, he will most likely die from his injuries as there are not enough doctors and not nearly enough medicine or equipment to treat the injured.

As long as the world watches silently … As long as Russia is allowed to feed the massacre machine known as Assad’s army … As long as ‘humanity’ allows this to happen … then innocent Syrians will die a painful, miserable and agonizing death every single day. 

This is a video of the aftermath as an activist explains what happens (video here)

This video was taken this past Friday (Nov 30th) when they came out to protest despite the shelling (video here)

There used to lie a neighborhood called Baba Amr here in Homs City …. this is what’s left after Assad’s forces were done with it.
