This isn’t the first, nor will it be the last war crimes atrocity by Syrian rebel terrorists. They’ve been shooting captured soldiers and government officials ever since they began taking up arms against the Assad regime. I refuse to support either side, they are both two sides of the same terrorist/tyrannical coin.

GENEVA – A video appearing to show Syrian rebels killing soldiers who had surrendered must be verified but appears to constitute a war crime that should be prosecuted, the United Nations human rights office said on Friday.
“Like other videos of this sort, it’s difficult to verify immediately in terms of location, who’s involved. We need to examine this carefully. It will be examined carefully,” UN human rights spokesman Rupert Colville told a news briefing.
“But the allegations are that these these were soldiers who were no longer combatants. And therefore, at this point it looks very likely that this is a war crime, another one,” he said.
Anti-government rebels killed 28 soldiers on Thursday in attacks on three army checkpoints around Saraqeb, a town on Syria’s main north-south highway, a monitoring group said.
