BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:40 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Fatah Halab and Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham carried out another heinous massacre prior to leaving the last east Aleppo neighborhoods this past week, an SAA officer from the Republican Guard told Al-Masdar News on Friday.

Over 100 hostages from the Syrian Arab Army, mostly young men between the ages of 18-25, were summarily executed by the jihadist rebels prior to their departure from the Sukkari and Bustan Al-Qasr districts of east Aleppo.

“These massacred soldiers were comprised of men that were captured by the jihadist rebels over a four year span in the Aleppo Governorate; they were unable to smuggle their hostages from the Sukkari School, so they chose to execute them instead,” the SAA officer added.

The photos above were released by pro-government journalists reporting from eastern Aleppo – the soldiers have not yet been identified.

Some reports indicate that a large number of the executed soldiers were beheaded before the jihadist rebels left; this could not be verified by Al-Masdar.

The Syrian Arab Army’s High Command demanded the release of these soldiers before the jihadists departed from east Aleppo; however, the latter denied having any hostages.

More details to come…

    • Florian : AGAIN : NO BUDGET WAS VOTED BY CONGRESS for this, moreover, it would be totally illegal to fund such operation. In other terms, US do not sponsor these terrorists! And they also didn’t paid for TOW missiles : KSA bought 15,000 of these ATGMs in 2014. The sponsoring doesn’t comes from the US at all.
      Note, I’m NOT saying they’re not implied, FAR from it! BUT, they aren’t the sponsor at all! Action was limited to “logistics” (moving weapons), training and political/PR support. The vetting for TOWs comes at the point that as a buyer of US weapons, you have to get their allowance to sell/give them to anybody.

  1. It was a mistake to let them free to leave , escaping their just punishment. A big show of hypocrisy was played out with the so-called ”mediation” of Turkey in ”convincing” the terrorists to leave. There should never be any negotiations. And major blame for this crime lies with the French , British and US ambassadors in the UNSC , for all of the theater they put up , pressuring Russia and Syria to let them go scot-free. The Syrians alone should have the upper hand in decisions , as an aggrieved sovereign party , letting them starve or surrender . These criminal gangs were allowed to withdraw with their weapons , like a regular army. What they could not gain with force of arms , they were able to gain through NATO pressure on Russia. A disgrace.

    • Cyriak, Although I agree with your sentiment, there is an argument that eradicating the Takfiri bandits and terrorists in the dense urban environment of East Aleppo would have taken a huge toll in civilian and SAA + Allies lives. Some of the best fighters for the Syrian government would have been killed and injured and their units reduced on combat effectiveness.

      It is a gamble BUT the large concentration of Takfiri terror gangs in Idlib and close to Al Bab with the Turkish army, will in time be a better area to enable the use of more destructive weapons that can eradicate the child murderers who are supported by the US/NATO and other black hearted regimes that are using proxi terrorists for their own ends.

      There is also the distinct possibility that many of the Takfiris will flee to Europe and the US to pursue their warped ideology there. That would be Karma indeed.

      • Karma in what? You are twisted my friend : this is CLEARLY a Qatar/KSA/Turkey project! NATO? Where do you see the alliance? If NATO was activated, Well, the few countries able to whithstand such an action are Russia or China and it’d go nuclear! NATO can put any country on its knees, straight back to the middle ages or stone-age in 48 hours!
        US action is very limited and secondary, same for YOUR country, UK :
        political+PR support, facilitating weapon smuggling and training the takfiris! These already serious violations of international laws and even casus beli. So karma would be Takfiris fleeing to Qatar, KSA, Turkey, UK and the US (and pay a visit to Sarkozy, I agree, although the LePen family being preaching fitnah, well…). Hey, even al-Jubeir and Erdogan did publicly complained that the EU wasn’t helping AT ALL to remove Assad! Thus, they implicitly confessed they were violating international law (!!!).
        Fucking face reality! And I’m probably one of the more willing people when it comes to eradicate terrorism and dirty foreign politics and many other disgusting processes but it’s not by pointing the finger on US/NATO as the main responsible entities while NATO has freaking nothing to do with it and US ain’t at all the main actor while they are not directly implied (again, I’m not saying they ain’t at all. And at my level, I’m very into willing EU to dump NATO : EU has the means to build its own defence alliance, US has no place in it, so for Turkey but truth shall be said and it’s not by distorting reality which will likely push people into doing attacks against countries that are even not implied that we’ll make a better world. You’re making a bitter world actually.

  2. And after the massacre the Syrian government under Russian request got hundreds of comfortable green buses to transfer many of the terrorist assassins to another place for a well deserved rest after the tremendous negotiation between Iran, Russia with Turkey in representation of Uncle Sam, and all of those animals safeguarded by the unilateral pause of the good-natured Russians at the time.
    What the good and wonderful fate of the defeated terrorists of Allepo.

    • With the number of strikes in the Idlib governorate, they’ll have problems to sleep.
      If you want to stop the conflict, Turkey although being in the 2nd circle is THE hub that leads to the “Syrian campaign” (I use Soros ‘words’, as he has an “Ukraine Campaign” too). Pushing Turkey into dropping being this hub is the main key to be able to end the conflict. Anyway, Turkey is really on the verge of implosion, it fucking smells the balkanisation and a fucking civil-war, not counting the now crumbling economy, nobody wanting to do tourism anymore there, a push to backwardism to a once secular country… Erdogan has put his country in serious dire straits. I feel Putin managed to explain him what he has done and now it seems he’s trying to avoid the spillover there while working at stopping the suffering in Syria. Both Syria and Iraq will be re-stabilised but I’d need to get unavailable unobtainable over-OSINT datas to consider id Turkey can or can’t being saved from going SHTF and TARFU… Does the point of no return has been reached or not, I don’t know but it smells fucking bad!
