Husweyyeh 16 1 2013
Capture image of the video blow, showing displaced civilians recounting what happened in Husweyyeh.

Reports emerging from Husweyeh massacre behold such intolerable pain of an extremely appalling massacre committed against 13 families according to eyewitnesses. The village is located near AlQusour district and is about 5 kilometers away from Homs city center [to the north of the city]. Husweyeh’s families are well-known for being farmers; the village has a population of about 1,500 civilians only and recently had more families settling in from disaster-stricken areas and invaded districts, such as Deir Ba’lbeh district and else. The village includes Sunnis, Christians, and Alawties, but the massacre is proven to be purely driven by sectarianism since all the families massacred are Sunni families only.

There are several barriers belonging to the regime’s forces surrounding this village:

– western side: the military college of Al Waer district

– southern side: Deek Al Jen barrier and barrier near Al Sabbagh factory

– eastern side: Industrial area and knitting factory [Al Ghazel factory]

On Tuesday, 15/1/2013, the regime’s military security forces entered the village 12:00 p.m. [Syria time] and arbitrarily arrested a number of men, amongst them martyr Abdul Haseeb Deyab, Imam of Al Tayyar mosque in Husweyyeh village. At 1:00 p.m. [Syria time], some of the detainees got released. At 2:00 p.m. [Syria time], 2 buses {well-known by civilians for being used to drive Shabiha (thugs)}, 4 other security forces buses, and 2 armoured vehicles arrived to the area and parked near Al Boushi factory for ceramics.

The military security forces spread:

– on the road separating Husweyyeh village from its orchards.

– on the beginning of Al Sena’ah road and ending in Al Dbaghah area

Some of the Shabiha (thugs) forces then invaded the orchards and the other group stormed 4 houses belonging to 4 families: Al Mazr’a, Khazam, Al Sahu, and Al Shehab.

Afterwards, some young men were extrajudicially executed in these houses then burnt in one house, which is the house of Abu Mashhour Shehab Deyab. They then moved into Al Ghaloul orchards and executed all the men, women, and children their found there from Al Ghaloul family. Third station was Al Deyab farmlands, where they also executed the whole family and burnt their corpses. Their last station was the farmlands right beside Al Deyab farmlands, where they killed more than 17 members of Al Mahbani family there.

Few of the young men were able to escape as they climbed on trees and hid in orchards. But the regime’s Shabiha (thugs) caught them, executed them and tied them to trees. Most of the eyewitnesses recounts said that the gold women were wearing was robbed after they were disgustingly humiliated whilst others were kidnapped/arrested and no one know anything about them nor about how many are they. House and commercial shops were looted too.

Up until now, 2:30 p.m, 105 martyrs have been documented from all these families executed. They are:

– Za’rour family

– Al Ghaloul family

– Al Shekhah family

– Al Sahu family

– Al Khazam family

– Al Athrah family

– Deyab damily
