10th anniversary of Al-Hawla massacre in Homs | Over 100 people were killed by regime forces and their proxies
SOHR renews its demands to hold the murderers of Syrian people accountable and bring them to justice.
Today marks the 10th anniversary for Al-Hawla massacre in Homs, where the regime forces carried out a horrific massacre on May 25 of 2012, killing 107 people in cold blood in the ground shelling by regime-loyalists from the nearby villages, where 49 children and 32 women were slaughtered and shot dead.
According to reliable SOHR sources, the regime forces and their proxies and other loyalists from nearby villages entered Taldo town in Homs countryside at 6 pm under cover by regime’s artillery shells, and killed dozens in their houses, in agricultural lands and near Al-Sad highway that leads to nearby villages holding “Alawite” civilians, before leaving the village on May of 2012.
SOHR obtained videos and pictures showing bodies of people who were killed and slaughtered including women and children.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) would like to bring to mind heinous massacres committed against innocent and peaceful Syrian civilians by all conflicting and warring powers in Syrian territory, especially since killing of Syrians has been still continuing for over a decade.
We, at SOHR, renew our calls to bring all those responsible and those who aided and abetted the killing of Syrian people to justice. We also appeal to the international community and united nations to intensify their efforts to reach a political settlement which could potentially put an end to bloodshed in Syria.
