Spokesman for the Syrian Coalition Salem al-Meslet condemns the world’ dubious silence on the continuing massacres of the Assad regime, especially in Aleppo where an eight-member family were killed in a barrel bomb attack on the town of Hayyan.
One of the victims is the child Yousef Fouad Hayek whose body was stuffed between the collapsed roof of his house and the barrel bomb that landed on the floor. Seeing all his family buried under the rubble, and the body of his child crushed against the ceiling, the father had a mental breakdown despite efforts to soothe him and take him away from the place.
“The scene of the child Yousef must shock the conscience of the world whose leaders would not remain silent had he been one of their sons. Assad would not have reveled in the slaughtering of our children for over four years had it not been for the immunity granted by Russia and China the world’s deadly silence on these crimes,” Meslet said.
“The Syrian people have lost all hope of any moral stance from Russia or China, but the greater disappointment comes from their friends who are supposed to support freedom and human rights but instead chose to keep silent. Moreover, those so-called friends still deny the Syrian people the means they need to defend themselves, namely the anti-aircraft weapons to ward off Assad’s warplanes.”
Activists documented the names of the Hayek family who were killed today in Hayan. They are: Mohammad Omar Hayek, Mohammed Fouad Hayek, Jamal Fouad Hayek, Fouad Youssef Hayek, Hamza Fouad Hayek, Muhammad Qadi Hayek, Ameena Hayek and Hasan Jubeir Koraytem. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
