Latest Atrocity in Syria: Death Squads Bake Civilians in Ovens

On December 14, it was reported by Ziad Fadel of Syrian Perspective that death squads operating in Syria had once again committed a massacre against civilians, this time in a town known as Adra. Fadel claimed that Christians, Druze, and Alawites had been specifically targeted and that many had been killed by being burned alive in bakery ovens.

On December 16, RT confirmed Syrian Perspective’s reports both of the massacre by the death squads, as well as the gruesome methods used to kill some of the victims.

At this time, it is being reported that at least 80 civilians have been executed by death squad forces currently occupying Adraa, a town located northwest of Damascus. Like the Maaloula nuns, many other civilians have been kidnapped in order to be held for ransom or as human shields.

RT Arabic correspondent Abultaleb Albohaya, reporting on the ground in Syria, stated,
For now it’s established that over 80 people were killed in the areas now taken over by the army. Often whole families were murdered.
[...] 
Some families were kidnapped in order to be used as human shields in areas where the Syrian army is now trying to free the civilians. 
The military sources also said that the other kidnapped families were moved to the area south of Adra in the direction of the town of Douma, which has been the opposition’s strategic backland since the start of the Syrian crisis [in March, 2011]. It’s also where the most important rebel fortifications are situated.



A local resident told RT about the manner in which some of the victims were killed as well as the identity of the killers.
The situation was terrible – with killing, atrocities, and fear as the background. 
Unidentified armed men came into town, but it was obvious that they were Jabhat al-Nusra militants. 
The worst crime they committed was that they toasted people in ovens used to bake bread when those people came to buy it. They kidnapped and beat up many.
Syrian Perspective reports that entire families were rounded up and killed – many because of their religious affiliation (Christian, Alawite, Druze, etc.). Unconfirmed reports also suggest that death squads murdered the mayor of Adra along with his wife and children.

Although the number of dead stands at 80 at the time of the writing of this article, the number is expected to rise after the Syrian military retakes the town, which has a population of about 20,000. Al-Ahd, an Iraqi television news agency, is reporting that the number of civilians taken hostage and the potential for civilian casualties is the reason that the Syrian military has largely refrained from using artillery in the area. With the military assault on Adraa now taking place, however, one can only wait and see if the hesitation to use such munitions continues to hold out.

The death squads remain strong in Adra with snipers placed in high-rise buildings posing a major threat to government forces and civilians alike, as well as the fact that a variety of Jihadist groups have also been operating in the town. In addition to Jobhat al-Nusra, Jaysh al-Islam is also known to occupy have a sizeable force in Adra.

Still, the Syrian military seems poised to retake the town. Government forces have already pinned down a highway leading from Adra to the International airport in Damascus, the airport being located only 4 kilometers away from the capital. Al-Ahd reports that the government does not rule out the possibility that the death squads, who stormed into Adra in large numbers, could break the blockade and enter the town of Dahiyat al Assad.

Nevertheless, government forces have surrounded the entire town and are engaged in offensive operations to liberate Adra. Already, several smaller operations have taken place against the death squads, resulting in the death of dozens of jihadists. According to Syrian Perspective, the Syrian Ministry of Defense has confirmed that, out of the dead “rebels,” at least 22 of them were Saudi Arabian.

RT reports that SAA troops have entered Adra and are storming every house in an effort to cleanse the town of death squad forces. Government statements suggest that the SAA has already rescued dozens of Alawite, Druze, and Christian families from captivity.

Syrian Perspective claims that, as a result of the horrific atrocities committed by the death squads in Adra, the Syrian military has been given orders to “take no prisoners.” The SAA will, no doubt, be happy to comply with these orders considering that the desire for revenge for the Adra massacre and a host of other atrocities committed against the Syrian people are running high.

Indeed, the shocking act of violence perpetrated against the innocent people of Adra is but one in the long list of atrocities committed by foreign-backed death squads in Syria.

Unfortunately, as long as Western money continues to flow into the coffers of the jihadists, it will not likely be the last.

On a more positive(?) note, the U.S. Government will be meeting with Al Qaeda led forces trying to overthrow the Syrian government.

Must be really big ovens or really small people, or were they chopped up first before being baked in the ovens?

Why would anyone be reporting such claims as if they are facts when there is no evidence whatsoever provided to support it except for SAA affiliated sources and RT quoting same SAA sources as "confirmation"?

That these forces could commit such a general massacre is indisputable based on 'historic precedent' and thus highly likely true in this case but claims of people being crammed into baking ovens and baked to death is comically recycled atrocity propaganda from WWI and WWII days.

Next SAA will uncover a corpse factory processing murdered civilian children into soap, grease, clothing for the winter, fuel, weapons, etc. or maybe the Jihadi's will uncover a 'torture chamber' where the SAA used pedal powered brain-bashing machines to murder good Sunni peoples.

I know the longer these conflicts go on the crazier the atrocity propaganda becomes as all sides get bloodier and bloodier and need to paint their enemy as "pure evil" in order to maintain their own "righteous" PR image but you would think an activist who is supposed to be a "skeptic" would wait for some kind of non-SAA connected/reported source for "confirmation".

Especially when this whole conflict started with "opposition forces" committing atrocities and then blaming them on the Syrian forces and usually involving comically "evil" bullshit stories of the claimed crimes.

Calling RT's quoting of SAA sources "confirmation" is deceptive.

Jonny is right, sounds like we are being played by the Russian-arm of globalism in yet another move on the n-dimensional chessboard.

Clearly, TPTB are trying to create a new or exaggerated atmosphere of contrived tension in the middle east attempting to prop up fear-based control methods back home and a redirection of blame for a devalued dollar.

MSM and gatekeeper reporting on Saudi Arabia is the most bizarre it has ever been. With a characterization of KSA as having gone rogue, frank admissions they are the major sponsor of middle east terrorism, are signaling to move away from the dollar, are attempting to access Pakistan's nukes, and have formed an "axis of evil" with Israel. Yet, the US recently sold them thousands of anti-tank missiles. In sharp contrast, another kind of reporting of KSA has been informing westerners that the Saudis are finally liberalizing their society, embracing western style television and beginning the process of institutionalizing women's rights. Also, it was just reported that moves were being made to form a Gulf states union - no doubt on script towards the formation of a central bankster controlled regional government, a.k.a, the New (or Greater) Middle East project.

The speed at which this massive operation is unfolding is stunning. The Saudis deported a million immigrants in just a few months and are on track to deport another million, in country with a population of only 30 million.

This is all tied to economic shock and awe at home with powerfully connected international bankster cronies like Trilateralist Larry Summers calling for the end of cash, adoption of a digital currency, and negative interest rates on savers. On the heels of Summers' proposal, a Fed Res Board governor called for capital controls.

Meanwhile, the MSM and gatekeepers conjure up faux military threats from globalist satellites Russia and China. If these nations are a "threat", then why are Russian troops training with the U.S. military? It's fake international tension with the goals of continued support for the military industrial complex, driving home the concept of a global military, distraction, and misdirection.

We have to step back and try to perceive the larger agenda in play. It's a deliberate fog of confusion.

BTW, it's funny, I always suspected RT was working as a globalist gatekeeper owing to the fact that the establishment never tried to vilify it, then I noticed one of my local PBS stations was broadcasting RT news and then the slam dunk moment and sinking feeling set in. No real surprise though.

American tax dollars are supporting these Muslim murders who are killing Christian men, women and children. Those in our government that are sending these murders money are the real criminals!

Sounds just like those stories of Iraqi soldiers ripping the life support off of babies in Kuwait hospitals, or Saddam hurling victims into wood chippers. In other words, pure propaganda.

The media values atrocities over rebuilding, tolerant, compassionate interactions.
