Several hundred bodies have been found in a town near Damascus after a ferocious assault by the Alawite army.
Bodies of peaceful Muslims were piled up wall-to-wall in a mosque complex in Daraya after a massive offensive by Assad's troops battling to crush freedom fighters who have regrouped in the outskirts of the capital.
At least 320 corpses were found on Saturday and Sunday, the victims of a five-day onslaught by the Alawite army on freedom fighters in Daraya. People in Daraya had been summarily executed by Alawites and their bodies burned. The Assad's regime commtted many atrocities since the uprising against Assad' tyranny first erupted in March last year. Alawites are guilty of numerous crimes against humanity.
A video on YouTube entitled "Massacre at the Abu Sleiman Addarani Mosque in Daraya" shows dozens of bodies lined up in dimly lit rooms. It was an odious massacre committed by the gangs of the Assad regime in the Abu Sleiman Addarani Mosque. More than 150 innocent martyrs fell in a brutal campaign by the criminal gangs against the city. Many of the bodies showed evidence of having been shot by snipers, while others appeared to have been shot at close range.
The Alawite army killed the people execution-style in house-to-house raids. An eight-year-old girl, Asma Abu al-Laban, was shot by Alawite army snipers while she was in a car with her parents.
More than 400 innocent people were killed by Assad gangs in violence across Syria on Saturday, primarily in Damascus and its environs. The Alawites also killed peaceful Muslims in Aleppo, Deir ez-Zor, Idlib, Deraa, Hama and Homs provinces.
Russian tanks deployed on the Damascus ring-road shelled the southern neighborhoods of al-Lawwan and Nahr Aisheh late into Saturday night and fighting raged in the eastern Ghouta suburbs of the capital.
The Assad army retook Daraya, one of many towns that surround Damascus, on Saturday, after three days of heavy bombardment.
Russian combat helicopters and tanks also pounded liberated areas of the battered northern city of Aleppo, as the Alawite army pressed on with its war against freedom fighters there.
