Regime forces backed Hezbollah militia, have carried out yet another massacre, this time in the village of Mazraa, north of Khan al-Asser in Aleppo province.
More than 50 people, including women and children, were killed. The dead, all civilians, were aged between 13 and 60, activists reported.
Regime troops and the militia groups stormed the village, located near Al Safira, earlier Monday, randomly executing people.
The victims were killed using gunshot, or had their throats slit. Many of the bodies were then burned and dismembered, before being thrown down village water wells. A number of women were also raped.
The village had been crowded with displaced people who had fled regime massacres and bombardment in other towns and villages in the area.
