50 family members of Noura were all murdered in front of her eyes by Assad regime’s Shabiha.
The Houla massacre (Arabic: مجزرة الحولة) was an attack that took place on May 25,2012, in the midst of the Syrian civil war, in the town of Taldou, in the Houla Regionof Syria, a string of towns northwest of Homs. According to the United Nations,108 people were killed, including 34 women and 49 children. While a small proportion of the deaths appeared to have resulted from artillery and tank rounds used against Taldou, the U.N. later announced that most of the massacre’s victims had been “summarily executed in two separate incidents”. UN investigators have reported that some witnesses and survivors stated that the massacre was committed by pro-government Shabiha.
