-Al Qaeda affiliated rebels in Syria executed two Alawite men on September 16 in the main square of the rebel-controlled city of Raqqa. Fighters from the “Islamic state of the Levant and Iraq”, a Sunni extremist group affiliated with Al Qaeda, justified the execution on the grounds that the men were “Nusaries”, a derogritory term used to describe members of the Alawite sect of Islam, from which Syrian president Bashar al-Assad hails.

When local women witnessing the execution protested the actions of the fighters, the fighters cursed the women and claimed that the men had raped women in the city of Homs. The men were subsequently executed and their bodies carted away in the back of a pick-up truck. This event has reinforced fears that Sunni extremists will try to eliminate the Alawite community of Syria if president Bashar al-Assad falls from power.

A Story of a Syrian Village
Homs, Syria

07 May 2013

Oyoun Hsain is a small village located in the northeastern countryside of Homs with a population of less than 4000 people.

The area was not subjected to either armed or peaceful revolutionary movements, but it fell victim to shelling and other destructive measures.

A massacre was on the verge of occurring, but the Free Syrian Army intervened and stopped it by evacuating the villagers away.

However, many people were killed due to the continuous shelling by warplanes, artillery and tanks from the battalion next to the village. Mercenaries also broke into the village several times and killed people. In addition to that, more than 120 people were kidnapped. Until this moment, nobody knows anything about what happened to those kidnapped people.

The film shows the destruction in the village after the evacuation of its inhabitants.

The buildings’ ruins embed the village’s memory, the people’s properties and their children’s food.

The film authenticates the story of the village. The film is a call for humanity sent to the neighboring villages, where mercenaries live in and still support the regime. It reminds them of the past years when they lived peacefully together; when all the sects in Syria lived in peaceful coexistence.

The film aims to wake up the remnant of humanity and mercy in neighbors’ hearts; the friends yesterday and the executioners today.

Tripoli, Lebanon | May 15, 2012

Order was partially restored as Lebanese army forces deployed to the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli on Tuesday, May 15, to bring to an end the violent clashes between the two rival neighborhoods of Bab al-Tabbaneh and Jabal Mohsen that resulted in at least eight people, and wounded more than 70.

Armed forces with armored vehicles scrambled to the area, and began erecting checkpoints, particularly along a primarily Syrian Street which runs between Bab al-Tabbaneh a neighborhood of Sunni residents who oppose Syrian President Bashar Assad, and Jabal Mohsen whose Alawite residents are supporters of the Syrian regime.

The Lebanese Army said in a statement that its presence in Tripoli was only to protect the civilians not to clash with them.
However, the people of Bab al-Tabbaneh have accused the army of being biased toward Jabal Mohsen.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Sunni woman:
"The army comes here peacefully and safely. Why did they start shooting the people and the innocent civilians. Why do they not harm those of Jabal Mohsen in any way? Is it because they are backed by the party of evil (referring to Hezbollah)? We want to understand. We are humans like them. Why are they favored over us? What law or constitution requires humiliation of the Sunni people in particular?"

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Sunni man:
"The army is biased to one party, which we do not accept. We have three injuries here. The three were unarmed, uninvolved and had nothing to do the fighting. Why should we allow ourselves to be attacked by the Lebanese army? Why is the army biased to Jabal Mohsen? They are the ones who started it. The Alawites of Jabal Mohsen believe that whoever kills a Sunni will go to Heaven! In what religion or Shariah can this be accepted?"

Security Sources said that the army has orders to arrest any gunmen and transfer them to the Military Tribunal.

Clashes erupted early Sunday between two families, Sunni opponents and Alawite supporters of Assad, after the controversial arrest of a Muslim Sunni cleric over connection to "an armed terrorist group.”

Tripoli, Lebanon | May 13, 2012

Armed clashes reignited between pro and anti-Syrian regimes in two neighborhoods in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli Monday, May 14, killing at least two, and injuring twenty according to Lebanese medical reports.

Other Lebanese reports quoted security sources as saying that the number of victims rose to three, and 45 were injured.
Intermittent gunfire is ongoing in the area.

The Lebanese army has deployed a number of armored vehicles at Bab al-Tabbaneh, a Sunni neighborhood hostile to the Syrian regime, and Jabal Mohsen, an Al-Waite neighborhood that supports the regime of Bashar al-Assad.

The gun battles started early Sunday morning after a projectile was shot into the Sunni neighborhood from the Al-Waite.

The recent tension in Tripoli was initiated when Lebanese authorities arrested a Salafi cleric to interrogate him over possible connections to "a terrorist organization.”

The Sunni-majority in Tripoli has been a theater for conflict between Sunnis and Al-Waites since the revolt in Syria erupted in mid-March 2011.

At least three were killed and tens were wounded on Sunday, May 13, in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli as clashes erupted between two rival neighborhoods over the legitimacy of the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad.
One of the victims was an army soldier and the other two were civilians according to the Lebanese state-run National News Agency (NNA).

The army finally managed to restore calmness to the area.
