Breaking, Exclusive: Terrorists Aligned with Syrian Human Rights Observatory Murder 300 in Dei Ezzor (updated)

Death squads linked to UK-based terror front murder 300 of Bou tribe

Deir Ezzor, – Latest: Fighters from the Bou Saraya tribe lead by Salem and Satam al Fayadh the brothers of Sheikh Muhani reached the village of al-Bghailiye and besieged the attackers in Frat Al Sham Hotel and then killed them all.

A new group of ISIS reinforcement has occupied the al Jazeera College but has been cut off by Bou Saraya forces and is taking heavy casualties as fighting continues. From north of the Euphrates River, near the hotel, an ISIS force is hitting civilian areas of the town with heavy mortar fire.

Eye witness reports from earlier in the day tell of bodies being dragged through the streets, children being smashed into walls while media, stringers from AP and Reuters, celebrate the killings, hand in hand with the murderers.

The brothers of Sheikh Muhana al Fayadh, who shared private briefings with Veterans Today’s Gordon Duff, Col. Jim Hanke and Nana Lancaster in December 2014, are leading an insurrection against ISIS in Deir Ezzor. Our reports directly from the fighting indicate that Saudi Arabia is stepping up its presence in and around Deir Ezzor, the critical “last stand” for ISIS in Eastern Syria.

Sheikh Muhana al Fayadh speculates that the slaughter may have been in retaliation for a resounding defeat suffered by a combined ISIS and FSA (Free Syrian Army) force at al Baba, near the Turkish border in Aleppo Province.


We have been informed that ISIS fighters left A. Bab area to Al Raqah in 60 vehicles, many of them General Motors Tahoe/Denali “Blackwater style” cars with their families.

The ISIS assault on al-Bghailiye village in Deir Ezzor’s western countryside began with dozens of suicide bombers detonating themselves in order to breach the city defenses followed by 500 ISIS terrorists whose slaughter claimed the lives of around 300 civilians, most of them women, children along with tribal militant defenders.

The Cabinet condemned the heinous crime, with Prime Minister Wael al-Halaqi saying that the legal and moral responsibility for this barbaric and cowardly massacre committed by ISIS hordes lies on the shoulders of all the states that support terrorism and that fund and armor Takfiri organizations which harbor hatred for all humanity.

The Premier said that terrorist organizations are committing massacres to make up for the recurring losses and defeats they suffer at the hands of the Syrian Arab Army, and that these terror organizations know that their days in Syria are numbered.

He said that such massacres will not dissuade Syrians from pursuing reconciliations and working to liberate the entirety of Syrian territories, offering condolences to the families of the victims.

    And materialism is not a religion? The Almighty Dollar is not a god? Keep in mind that these mercenaries are fighting for their own profit, too. As Sun Tzu said, “… that there may be advantage from defeating the enemy, [our men] must have their rewards.”

    I envisage SRHO …. wearing a string vest, sweating profusely (because he’s got the heating up too high…) and smoking an endless stream of Woodbines. His Mum comes in every now and again with a cup of tea, grumbling on and off she wished he’s get a proper job (like Ho Chi Minh’s Mum had desperately hoped he’d become head-waiter, better still, Maitre D, in the French restaurant he’d worked at in Paris.

    But greatness beckoned them both, and motherly dreams of domestic normalcy have had to fall by the way.

      Wow, thanks for your posts, Paul Becke and Worker Bee.

    Apparently, ‘the UK based Syrian Human Rights Observatory, is a bloke sitting at a computer in his mother’s basement. Something like that.

      The “Syrian Human Rights Observatory” is a Syrian ex-con living in a small flat above a noodle shop in Coventry.

    The use of the MSM programming catch terminology label “religious extremists” supports the implied falsehood that they finance themselves. It covers up the fact that they are being paid and armed by someone. . It’s really amazing how many “religious extremists” have armored vehicles, large caliber artillery, fuel, huge ammunition dumps and can sustain battles over huge areas for years and years.

    Prime Minister Wael al-Halaqi saying that the legal and moral responsibility for this barbaric and cowardly massacre committed by ISIS hordes lies on the shoulders of all the states that support terrorism and that fund and armor Takfiri organizations”….. add a concentrated international focus and emphasis on individuals, Senator John McCain out front and neck deep in the blood of the innocent … only monsters breed monsters

    A huge msm lie, that these killers are religious extremists when they kill Syrian civilians and Muslim extremists when they kill anyone else. They are just murderers for hire.
