Regime forces killed about 100 people, including many women and children, in a “massacre” in Syria’s central Hama province on Wednesday, the opposition Syrian National Council (SNC) told AFP.
“We have 100 deaths in the village of Al-Kubeir… among them 20 women and 20 children,” said Mohammed Sermini, spokesman for the coalition, which accused the regime of being behind the “massacre.”
Other sources also reported that a “massacre” had taken place in the same area, including opposition activists and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which said 87 people were killed.
The “new massacre” was carried out at a farm by the pro-regime shabiha militia armed with guns and knives after regular troops had shelled the area, the Britain-based Observatory said in a statement.
