Hariri: Latest Homs Massacre Condemns International Community for its Lack of Humanityإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri noted on Monday that the latest “massacre committed by the Syrian regime” in Homs coincided with the Israeli assault on Gaza over the weekend.
He said in a statement: “The latest massacre committed by the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad against innocent people not only condemns the regime, but the international community for its lack of humanity.”
“The Homs massacre is one of the signs of the imminent end of the Assad regime that will only meet the same end as other criminal rulers who abuse their power to oppress their people,” he added.
The former premier therefore renewed his solidarity with the Syrian people, calling on the international and Arab communities to support them “in statement and in action.”
The bodies of 47 women and children have been found in the Syrian city of Homs, where security forces have been fighting raging battles against armed rebels, the opposition and activists said on Monday.
Hadi Abdallah, a Syrian activist in Homs, told Agence France Presse the bodies of 26 children and 21 women, some with their throats slit and others bearing stab wounds, were found after a "massacre" in the Karm el-Zaytoun and al-Adawiyeh neighborhoods of the besieged central city.
