Ninth anniversary of horrific massacre | 26 civilians were field executed in Al-Shaikh Hadid village in Hama

SOHR renews its demands to hold the murderers of Syrian people accountable and bring them to justice.

SOHR recalls the horrific massacre that took place nine years ago on September 21, 2013, where SOHR activists documented the death of 26 people including four children and two women, who were field-executed by regime-backed gunmen with knives and machetes, while the regime-backed gunmen were storming Al-Shaikh Hadid village in Hama countryside.

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 the 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.
