At 13, he is one of the youngest known victims of Syria's ruthless crackdown on protesters who have tried to overthrow the government of President Bashar al-Assad.The teenager's family were told not to speak of his terrible fate. But in a pitiful act of defiance, they posted the footage of his corpse online.
Before jumping to any conclusions, ask yourself how much is really known about this boy's death. What evidence is there that Syria's ruler is responsible? Wouldn't he have to be an absolute idiot to do something like this, and then to let the body show up in the media? It was more likely done by someone who wanted to make him look bad. Furthermore, for all we know, he was dead before any of the wounds were inflicted. Perhaps he was accidentally killed, and his body removed from the morgue and mutilated for propaganda purposes. Perhaps the wounds were made to look as if he was still alive when they were inflicted. It seems that whenever British intelligence wants to depose some ruler, they demonize him with something like this. So, don't jump to any conclusions.
