Residents of Jabal Al-Hoss region in southern rural Aleppo on Thursday reported that Iranian militiamen slaughtered six civilians with knives in yet new horrific crime against the Syrian people.
Local activists said that militants belonging to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps raided the villages of Abisan, Makhlaf, and Al-Khafiya south of Aleppo. The militiamen stole livestock and detained six civilians from these villages and took them to an unknown destination.
Residents of the village of Al-Khafiya found the bodies of the six people on Thursday morning, with the bodies showing signs of torture and some decapitated, activists added.
On Sunday, Iranian militias executed 21 unarmed civilians in northern rural Raqqa. Local activists said that the crime came in revenge for the killing of Qassem Soleimani, commander of IRGC’s Quds Force who was killed in an American strike outside Baghdad last Friday.
Terrorist militias backed by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards maintains heavy presence in regime-held areas in northeastern Syria, especially in the provinces of Aleppo, Raqqa, and Deir Ezzor all the way to the Syrian-Iraqi border. They have been involved in daily violations against the local population. (Source: Syrian National Coalition’s Media Department)
