Video - Syrian MP Executed Publicly by "Free Syrian Army" Firing Squad:
August 01, 2012 "Information Clearing House" -- Video posted by antigovernment activists showed more than a dozen men, some with bloodied faces and torn clothing, who are said to be members or associates of the clan. Held in what appeared to be the room of a school, they were made to give their names and accused of being pro-government militiamen known as shabiha. The man sitting in the center and said to be a leader of the group said his name was Ali Zein El Abidin Barri, also known by the nickname Zeino.
- Warning -
Video contains graphic images depicting the horror of war and should only be watched by a mature audience.
Another video, posted to YouTube on Tuesday, appeared to show several of the men from the clip above, including an older man bleeding from his face and wearing only his black underwear, being led by rebels with assault rifles out onto an Aleppo street where a crowd had formed.
In the extremely graphic and disturbing video, the men, prisoners of the rebel fighters, were then forced to sit along the wall of a local school, decorated with a painted mural of Mickey Mouse, SpongeBob SquarePants and other cartoon characters kicking a soccer ball.
“The Free Syrian Army forever,” the crowd chanted. “Stepping on Assad’s head.”
Then, seemingly without warning, someone in the group of armed rebels fired a single shot. That set off a hail of bullets that continued for nearly 45 seconds. Many in crowd, including the videographer, backed away from the ad hoc firing squad. As a cloud of dust cleared, the lifeless bodies of the captured men could be seen. An Al Jazeera reporter in Aleppo identified one of the dead as a local politician, Zeino al-Barri.
