Only days after the brutal public execution of a 15-year-old boy by Syrian death squads, the association of killers known as “rebels” have committed yet another atrocity, this time in the village of Hatla in Deir Ezzor Governorate.
According to reports by The News broadcast on the Syrian Official TV Channel on June 13, 2013, Jabhat al-Nusra, one of many groups of the foreign-backed death squads that have terrorized Syria for the last two years, have now gunned down 30 villagers. The motivation behind the killings, as is typical of the death squads, is currently unclear.
However, it is known (according to The News) that the terrorists first attempted forced relocation by demanding that the residents leave the village. Those villagers that remained were killed and their houses were burned.
The News reports the incident by saying,
A terrible massacre has been committed against the people of Hatla village in Deir Ezzor by the terrorists who use religion as a cover adding a new black chapter to their criminal record.
A few hours after killing a 15 year old boy [Muhammed al-Qatta], Jabhat al-Nusra perpetrated a new massacre in Hatla village in Deir Ezzor Governorate. They compelled the inhabitants to leave and killed those who remained and burned their houses.
