At least 20 martyrs fell in 2 separate massacres, one in Talkalakh and the other in Krak Des Chevaliers

– Details about Talkalakh massacre:

The regime’s forces have attempted to invade the city of Talkalakh from the western side, but failed due to the fierce defense exhibited by the Free Syrian Army soldiers, who eventually succeeded in prohibiting the regime’s forces from invading the area.
Today, the regime’s forces, and in retaliation to the battle they lost yesterday, committed a horrific massacre in Al Burj district, which is under their control, and executed civilians using knives then cut their limbs off. Do note that amongst the 13 martyrs are at least 7 women and at least 3 children, who surely were defenseless and unarmed, yet have been brutally and inhumanely executed. The martyrs documented are:

– Martyred female Sabah Owaid
– Martyred female child of Sabah Owaid
– Martyred female Fatmeh Kdalem / aged 37
