Activists of the embattaled city of Homs say while U.N reports have confirmed only eight massacres in Syria, other massacres in the revolutionary capital have been forgotten.
After 30 months of killing, massacres, bombardment and shelling, it is hard to find any area or neighborhood in Homs that hasn't been damaged or shelled, said Abo Obaidah al-Shami, an activist.
Shami detailed important information about about each massacre that had been committed.
He said he was sorry that massacres in areas near Homs like Tal-Kalakh, al-Hosn Castle, al-Farhaniyeh and al-Qaryateen have been "forgotten".
The same has happened to other Homs neighborhoods such as Refai, al-Adawiyeh, Ashirah, al-Shammas and Deir Baalab, he said.
A U.N. commission report said on Wednesday that at least eight massacres have been perpetrated in Syria by the Assad regime and its supporters and only one by rebels over the past 18 months.
The commission's report highlights the worsening pattern of violence against civilians, including executions and hospital bombings, as the government battles to retake lost territory from the rebels, including Islamist and Jihadi fighters.
Describing Syria as a "battlefield", even when armed forces are getting away with large-scale murder, the commission said that in each of the incidents since April 2012 showed “the intentional mass killing and identity of the perpetrator were confirmed to the commission’s evidentiary standards.”
Moreover, relentless shelling has killed thousands of civilians and displaced the populations of entire towns, the report added.
Massacres and other unlawful killings are perpetrated "with impunity", the commission concluded.
“An untold number of men, children and women have disappeared. Many are killed in detention; survivors live with physical and mental scars of torture. Hospitals and schools have been bombarded.”
Most massacres perpetrated in Homs have not been mentioned in U.N report. "They have been forgotten, as usual," said Shami.
