on social media

A video on YouTube shows four purported militiamen being led
into a crowded yard before a prolonged barrage of gunfire is
unleashed as people chant “God is Greater”. As the smoke clears,
a crumpled pile of bodies can be seen by a wall.

The execution appeared to have been carried out in a
schoolyard at an undisclosed location in Aleppo. It took place
as Assad’s forces attacked residential neighbourhoods with
artillery and from the air to try to drive out the rebels.

In the video, which could not be independently confirmed,
the men were identified as members of the pro-Assad “shabbiha”
militia from the Berri family. At least two of them were in
their underwear as they were led down a flight of stairs and
lined up in front of a wall.
