The latest Aleppo massacre reflects earlier ones. Western-recruited death squads bear full responsibility.
Media scoundrels claim otherwise. The New York Times headlined "Adversaries in Syria Trade Blame for Scores of Killings in Aleppo," saying:
"Al Jazeera quoted a" Free Syrian Army commander. He pointed fingers the wrong way. He claimed victims were "executed by the regime."
London's Guardian said "Syrian rebels recover scores of bodies from Aleppo river as floodwaters recede."
They continue to be found. Final death toll numbers may approach or exceed 120. "Rebel groups blamed the Syrian government for the killings, suggesting that some of the victims had crossed into 'loyalist' areas then disappeared."
None had ID cards. Extrajudicial killings are commonplace. Tuesday's death toll may be unprecedented. Atrocities accompany them. Assad loyalists are targeted.
The Syrian Free Press headlined "New Massacre of civilians by the hand of terrorist Militia mercenaries, passed of as being done by Syrian Arab army."
Dozens of bodies were found along the Quwayq River. Civilians killed were family members held hostage by terrorists. They were "human shields" until no longer needed.
They were executed in cold blood. Women and children were murdered like men. Gunshots to the head killed them. Bodies were found hands tied and mutilated.
The area is terrorist controlled. Voice of Russia headlined "Syrian terrorists execute civilians," saying:
Bodies of men, women, and boys were found in the Quweiq River. It's in Aleppo's southwest. Death squad militants control the area.
On January 29, Friends of Syria.com headlined "Update on the Bodies in the River," saying:
Jabhat al-Nusra "carried out a mass execution against tens of abducted persons, throwing their bodies in Quweig River at Bustan al-Qasr area in Aleppo."
On January 30, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) headlined "Media Source: Jabhat al-Nusra Terrorists Perpetrate Mass Execution in Aleppo," saying:
Families "identified a number of the killed, stressing that Jabhat al-Nusra abducted them because of their (refusal) to cooperate with this terrorist group."
