- Children of Iraqi city of Fallujah have been systematically sniped by terrorist groups surrounding the city. They killed innocent children mercilessly and deliberately. One day after the truce in Syria, Jaish al-Fatah issued a statement, ordering not to attack the city any longer.
- The last child (Haidar Ammar al-Mahmoud) was sniped exactly 2 days after the truce. In other words, such brutal actions prove Jaish al-Fatah’s lack of commitment. Heidar Zamani was sniped on the way of cemetery.
- According to international law and International Criminal Court, targeting civilians has been regarded as a crime against humanity.
- It seems that the purpose of such shooting is to train snipers and to take revenge of Syrian army over repeated defeat in the battlefield.
- Over the last week, at least 200 civilians were injured and hospitalized due to mortar attacks. It worth mentioning that the exact number of causalities is not obvious. To find it out, contact local officials if possible. Until now, the writer of this article cannot succeed in making any contact with them.
- According to the above-mentioned table, 5 children were carried out of the city, 8 children still remain in the city, and 2 children need to be urgently hospitalized.
- The article has been submitted to Los Angeles Times. An interview with Dr. Ahmad Shahadat has been scheduled. Notwithstanding the interview has been done by Nabih Bulos, who is a Special Correspondent for the Los Angeles Times, but the article has not been published yet.
