The Syrian Arab Army (SAA), with the help of the Syrian Red Crescent Society, recovered the bodies of 42 civilians that were massacred by the Syrian opposition forces inside the small town of Zarah three weeks ago.

In addition to the 42 civilian bodies that were recovered, the Syrian Arab Army and Red Crescent Society also transported the bodies of 7 dead soldiers.

The agreement to recover these bodies from the Syrian opposition forces was facilitated by the Syrian Red Crescent Society of Homs; it was accepted by the Syrian Arab Army and rebels.

All 49 casualties have now been transported to the Homs Military Hospital in order to identify the bodies of the victims.

The Zarah massacre was committed by Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham after they seized the town from the Syrian Armed Forces.

Why cant you people get your vocabulary straight? al-Nusra and Ahrar are not “rebels” … they are al-Qaeda terrorists…who exactly are the ‘rebels” that you people keep loosely referring to??
