As Assad’s forces grow more desperate the massacres keep piling up. On January 30th the rebel forces pulled around 70 bodies out of the Kuwait River near Allepo. Among the young men were victims as young as 12 years old. Many had their hands tied and had been shot execution style in the face or back of the head. To complicate things, Assad’s snipers took potshots at the rebels as they tried to pull the bodies to safety for proper burial. Many rebels claim that there were more bodies to be pulled out had the sniper fire not increased.
This leaves many to ask just why the UN has not intervened to stop the slaughter? Why is Assad allowed to continue his massacres while the world watches in silence?
