More than 100 civilians have been killed in a new massacre in Syria, a watchdog said Thursday, according to AFP.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the deaths came on Tuesday, when the army swept through farmlands north of Homs city, where it said around 1,000 people had sought refuge from fighting in the central Syria metropolis.
The Syrian regime carried out a new massacre on Tuesday claiming 106 victims, including women and children, the Britain-based watchdog, which relies on a network of activists and medics on the ground, told AFP.
Witnesses said several members of the same family were among those killed, some in fires that raged through their homes and others stabbed or hacked to death. Among the dead were 32 members of the same clan.
Homs, dubbed the capital of the revolution by Syria's opposition, is the most strategic city in the country's largest province, lying on key trade routes near the borders with Lebanon and Iraq, and with its southwestern areas not far from Damascus.
They came in and slaughtered the women and the children. They burned their bodies, an unidentified woman told an anti-regime activist, according to amateur video distributed by Homs-based opponents of the regime.

Gee, John Kerry must feel right at home since he said that he, as an American (soldier/sailor) acted like Ghengis Khan in Vietnam, and raided peoples’ houses in Afghanistan.
Kerry killed several civilians on a boat and covered up the crime. Never charged with a “war crime”, or “treason” for that matter.
Now that is something he should be asked about at his Senate nomination hearing for SecState.
