Report: Syrian Children Being Burned Alive in Mass Execution


Aleppo24, which describes itself as an independent news source, claims there has been incidents of children being burned alive.

President Assad’s forces appear to have taken control of Aleppo which has been at the centre of the country’s bloody civil war for the past four years.

There are now concerns for up to 100,000 civilians in the city who fear reprisals as the Syrian Army takes control from rebel forces.

They are said to be trapped in an area no more than five miles wide and are calling on the UN to facilitate their passage to safety.

Many have been tweeting heartbreaking final messages calling for help.

Lina Shamy, an activist tweeting from inside Aleppo, posted a video message on Twitter saying: 

“We are exposed to a genocide in the besieged city of Aleppo. This may be my last video.”

In a message the group wrote: “The bombs are falling as we write this. For years our humanitarian volunteers have worked to save the lives of our people in Aleppo: operating in underground hospitals, rescuing entire families buried under rubble and risking our lives to document what the daily war crimes committed by Assad regime and its ally Russia. We can do no more.

“Now we are with 100,000 civilians trapped in an area of five square miles with non-stop bombs, shells and advancements on the ground. In one building more than 500 people are sheltering. People have been underground for days.”

“If we stay we fear for our lives. The women may be taken to camps, the men disappeared and anyone who is known to have supported civilians will face detention or execution. We’ve watched thousands of our boys and men be detained. Countless White Helmets, doctors, nurses and humanitarians have been targeted and killed in the regime’s cruel assault on Aleppo. The regime has been trying to kill us for five years. Please don’t get them this chance.

“We cannot believed that the world’s most powerful countries cannot get 100,000 souls four kilometres to relative safety.”

“The Secretary-General is conveying his grave concern to the
relevant parties.”

Who knows when the bloodshed will end for the people. If U.S disengages, the civil war is more likely to be ended sooner.
