Reuters had this report this morning about this massacre in Douma carried out last night:
“There was a horrible massacre in Douma last night,” the media office of the opposition network in Douma said in a statement. “More than 20 civilians have been slaughtered by (pro-government militia) shabiha who were at a checkpoint and then stormed into a residential building nearby.”
Mahmoud Doumany, an activist living in Douma, said that he had the names of 20 of the dead but that 10 were too disfigured to be identified.
“People now are scared and very angry. Some of the martyrs were killed with knives, others were shot,” he told Reuters.
Of course the Assad regime blamed those who have taken it uponÂ themselvesÂ to protect the civilians with the crime.
MassacresÂ that include killing Sunni women and children are part of larger campaign carried out by Assad, Hezbollah, and Iran to ethnically cleanse the Sunni majority in Syria.
