In what has become commonplace, yet another report has now surfaced regarding a massacre of innocent civilians by al-Qaeda death squads in Syria. According to reports from Al-Alam News, an Iranian news agency, approximately 330 men and women have been murdered along with 120 children in Tal Abyad, a district of northern Syria. The majority of the victims appear to have been Kurdish.

The perpetrators of the attack were allegedly members of the Jabhat al-Nusra Front, a terrorist organization which has been active inside Syria for some time and one which has clear ties to both the CIA and Turkish intelligence. [1]

Al-Alam aired what RT described as “horrific uncensored footage from the scene,” although RT has stated that it has been unable to confirm the authenticity of the footage as of yet.[2]

At this time, neither the Syrian government nor the death squads have confirmed the reports coming from Al-Alam. However, RT was able to contact a number of sources inside Syria, including several Kurds, who confirmed that fighting in their areas had been increasing.
