Which massacres? the Two Baniyas ones, Reuters reports, which "did not involve fighting with rebels" or, implicitly, slaughter of loyalist families by rebels. I didn't easily find the report direct link, but a list should be made with our findings for each one linked. --Caustic Logic (talk) 23:17, 11 September 2013 (UTC)


Forces loyal to President Assad kill seven children during fighting for the town of Nabek near Damascus, activists say.

Staff announced last night that the town of Al-Nabak has been completely liberated and is now under the total control of the Syrian Army. This victory came after a series of specialized operations, each thoroughly successful, resulting in communications intercepted by MI telling all remnant rodents to "head for the hills". The SAA and SAAF are now hovering over the area trying to capture or kill rodents making their way to the safety of the Lebanon.


Does anybody have a good insight what happened in Deraa in March 2011 ? I was not following ... --Resup (talk) 23:41, 17 December 2016 (UTC)

After the massacre of Deraa in March 2011, I condemned it during my lectures. Just two days later, I was interrogated by the [Syrian] Air Force. I was released, but the warning was clear: never do it again, because next time it won't be like this. Only three months after, philosophy professor Jamal Tahhan was arrested for his peaceful protests and tortured. Many other detentions, tortures and killings of scholars followed. --here
As the legend goes, a couple of kids sprayed graffitis against the government, got arrested and tortured, which was the initial event of the "revolution". It is unclear to which extent this happened at all and the reported death toll is one max. See here and somewhere in there. See also on that page events later that month which have the familiar signature of "unknown snipers" killing both sides. --CE (talk) 00:09, 18 December 2016 (UTC)
