Syria regime has killed 2,900"with knives," says opposition ( like either side should point fingers)
BEIRUT - Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces have killed some 2,900 people "with knives," the opposition National Coalition said in a new report Tuesday.
The publication, timed to coincide with International Human Rights Day, accuses Syrian
government forces of carrying out "at least 20 massacres that involved the slaughter of 2,885 people" with knives and other crude weapons.
The victims, the report said, include "more than 200 children and 120 women."
The Coalition said the killings amounted to "a series of organized crimes of genocide."
It said the 81-page report was based on open source reporting, investigations by international organizations and the testimony of both survivors and opposition activists.
Among the incidents documented in the report are the deaths of at least 110 people in the town of Houla in central Homs province on May 25, 2012.
The United Nations concluded that the majority of those killed in the incident were summarily executed, and local residents said the attack was carried out by pro-regime militias.
The report also noted dozens of deaths in the city of Banias and the village of Bayda nearly a year later, many of them summary executions of women and children.
"The regime began in the early days of the revolution to establish death squads specifically to carry out massacres with 'cold arms,'" the Coalition said, using a term for weapons that do not use fire or explosions.
More than 125,000 people have been killed in 33 months of fighting in Syria between anti-government forces and the regime, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based group that relies on activists and other witnesses on the ground.
Here is the reality of the Rebel side - aptly stated by Russia Putin
"One does not really need to support the people who not only kill their enemies, but open up their bodies, eat their intestines in front of the public and cameras," Putin said.
"Are these the people you want to support? Are they the ones you want to supply with weapons? Then this probably has little relation to the humanitarian values preached in Europe for hundreds of years."
The incident Putin referred to was most likely that of a rebel commander filmed last month cutting into the torso of a dead soldier and biting into a piece of one of his organs.
Both sides have been accused of atrocities in the conflict.
// The United States and other countries that aid the rebels say one of the reasons for doing so is to support mainstream opposition groups and reduce the influence of extremists.//
The OBAMA position makes NOOOO SENSE
