Syria Islamists Execute Youth in Front of Family


Islamist rebels fighting the Syrian regime shot dead a 15-year-old child in front of his parents and siblings Sunday after accusing him of blasphemy, a monitoring group said.

"An unidentified Islamist rebel group shot dead a 15-year-old child who worked as a coffee seller in (the northern city of Aleppo), after they accused him of blasphemy," said Syrian Observatory for Human Rights director Rami Abdel Rahman.

Abdel Rahman said the rebel group likely comprised foreign jihadists. "They spoke classical Arabic, not Syrian dialect," he told Agence France Presse.

"They shot the boy twice -- once in the mouth, another in his neck -- in front of his mother, his father and his siblings," he added.

The Observatory condemned the execution as "criminal and a gift to the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

"This kind of criminality is exactly what makes people in Syria fear the fall of the regime," Abdel Rahman said.

The Britain-based monitoring group, which relies on a broad network of activists, doctors and lawyers in Syria for its reports, demanded the killers' arrest.

"We are working on identifying their names," said Abdel Rahman.

Large swathes of Aleppo city have since last year fallen into rebel hands.

Activists have frequently lashed out against rebel groups which have taken advantage of the security vacuum in Aleppo to commit rights abuses.

This story is not correct.
I believe it was based on a false report that has been discarded.

Why do you say the story is incorrect?

It is scum like those who are the opposition's worst enemies. It is scum like those who are making Syrians reconsider the merits of the Syrian revolution. The FSA must eliminate the Jihadists first if it wants to have any chance to succeed in its mission to democratize Syria.

i bet you that assad is paying those ruthless and inhuman islamists just to divide the opposition and the syrian people... given the past of the baath regime every thing is possible to stay in power, other dictators already did that!

Of course, the rebels wouldn't hurt a fly.

Thumb saturn 09 June 2013, 18:30

And the bearded foreign types are friendly, open-minded, democracy seeking rebels who wouldn't hurt anyone?

only those not integrated in their European countries are fighting in Syria. the same applies to the hezbolla men that aren't integrated in the lebanese civil society.

Assad was not in the business of killing his people this is the were of outside Sunni interlopers! The blood should be on the hands of Saudi and Qatar monarchy. Don't believe the bull shit the western media feeds its dumbed up citizens.

This is the exact reason why these extremist terrorists should not prevail in this fight. There way of life and believes are violent, they live by the sword and will always try to enforce with the sword over the people that disagree with their views. How many more heinous acts do we need to be witness to before we declare FSA a terrorist organization? Eating the organs of the dead, rapping, looting, killing and kidnapping religious figures and killing innocent kids shouldn't be excepted in our society.

i think these islamists were hired by assad to justify the need to his criminal republic.

Missing peace 09 June 2013, 19:15

just think of it: who released elabsi before nahr elbared and let him come to lebanon? hariri? LOL... where did he escaped after nahr elbared? KSA? LOL... assad has been using and harbouring islamists terrorists groups for decades to use them... can M8ers deny this fact? LOL

Thumb lebanon_first 09 June 2013, 19:21

100%. HA had a red line against the leb army against attacking nahr el bared.
Fath el islam was sponsored by syria to weaken lebanon. Now they are fighting assad...

islamists are just a tool. Islamists are mercenaries who are thrown here and there to assist various causes. (baathist, farsi, wahabi, zionist.) These islamists have no popular base.

Missing kiserouen 09 June 2013, 20:02

Peace, you are indeed correct. Assad is an expert at installing fake islamists to do dirty work. He learned from the US government yet pretends he is resisting them. Every drug dealing thug can be hired these days to be "an islamist" in order to destroy peoples legitimate resistence. We saw the same scenario in iraq.

Missing kiserouen 09 June 2013, 19:58

Exactly. The install fake islamists who do such things to tarnish the opposition and scare people in to supporting the ruthless regime.
