Horrific crime in Hama | Regime soldier kills child and film his heinous crime

Hama province: SOHR sources have reported a horrific crime, where an 11-year-old boy was killed in the western countryside of Hama. According to SOHR sources, a volunteer in regime forces has killed his step-son by injecting him with acid and poisonous substances in his neck after torturing him for 48 hours. This incident followed a disagreement between the murderer and his wife after she had sold her jewelry, as the man filmed his crime and sent video footages to his wife, showing the child breathing his last. After the child died, the murderer buried him near the railway nearby Khattab town in Hama countryside.


We, at the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), warn against the alarming increase of crimes in light of the escalating security chaos throughout Syria, particularly regime-controlled areas, especially with the Syrian regime remaining in power.
