Report: Syrian Rebels Hang Shi'ite Child After Killing Family

The image of that dear child is heart wrenching

Brutal pictures emerged from Syria of a small Shi’ite child who was hanged by rebel forces after his entire family had been murdered.

The pictures were published by a human rights activists reporting from Iraq. Iraq’s news website, Qanon, reported that the rebels attacked the family in the Seyede Zainab neighborhood of Damascus

The brutality of the rebel forces have largely gone unreported in the Western media (see RadicalIslam’s related video, { “Media Bias Muddies Waters in Syria”). However, in recent days, online videos have surfaced showing how the rebels deal with those they perceive as loyal to the regime.

Update: Original source appears to be Iranian so who in the hell knows what's what in Syria.
