They beat, whipped, burned, shot, and castrated a 13 year old boy

People who brutally tortured and killed a child are not human!
Where are the human rights committees?
Where is the International Criminal Court?

Sadism of the Assad Regime’s Violence:
1) Male and child rape
2) Practice of sexual torture used on male detainees
3) Detainees were raped in front of their family
4) Their wives and daughters would also be raped
5) Some stated that they had been anally raped with batons
6) Beatings of genitals
7) Forced oral sex
8) Electroshocks
9) Cigarette burns to the anus…

The Syrian authorities are brutally torturing and killing prisoners simply for being involved in political protests.

13-year-old, Hamza Ali al-Khateeb, disappeared on 29 April during protests against the siege of Dera’a. The boy was later found dead with apparent blunt force injuries and a severed penis.

The body of another victim, Tariq Ziad Abd al-Qadr, from Homs, was returned to his family on 16 June. His family were horrified to learn the extent of his injuries, which included ripped-out hair, marks to the neck and penis possibly caused by electric shocks, an apparent cigarette burn, whipping marks, stab wounds and burns.

The body of Dr Sakher Hallak, who ran an eating disorders clinic in Aleppo, was discovered by the side of a road a few days after his arrest on 25 May. Sources said his injuries included broken ribs, arms and fingers, gouged eyes and mutilated genitals.

A 16 year old describes being arrested by Assad’s forces: “Once, I was arrested along with hundreds of other people. They separated out the children and I was the oldest at 16. … There was a group of small children with us whose parents were ‘wanted’. There were perhaps 13 children in total. They weren’t allowed food or water. When it was time for us to eat, their group was surrounded by armed men who stopped anyone giving them food. These children were too weak to even cry. They just lay on the floor. They were also subjected to repeated beating with sticks, worse than us. I knew a boy called Ala’a. He was part of that group. He was only six years old. He didn’t understand what was happening. His dad was told that his child would die unless he gave himself up. I’d say that this six-year-old boy was tortured more than anyone else in that room. He wasn’t given food or water for three days, and he was so weak he used to faint all the time. He was beaten regularly. I watched him die. He only survived for three days and then he simply died. He was terrified all the time.”

This story is not from Nazi-occupied Europe in World War Two. This is from Assad’s Syria in 2011-12.
