Syrian residents and the opposition expressed outrage on Wednesday at the brutal beheading of a child by a rebel group in Aleppo city, branding it a “heinous act”.

The horrific murder, captured in footage circulated on social media Tuesday, was carried out by Islamist rebels who accused the boy of fighting alongside government forces.

“How could they slaughter a child like this?” asked 25-year-old Bassel Zein, a barber in the opposition-held Al-Kalasseh neighbourhood of Aleppo.

“He should have been tried in a fair way and maybe swapped with the regime for rebel detainees instead of this heinous act,” he said.

Other residents said the beheading tarnished the name of the opposition, and at an Aleppo mosque on Tuesday night, Imam Mohamed Badawi railed against the killing.

“This is the work of criminals, and is forbidden in Islam,” he told the congregation gathered for sunset prayers.

The boy was decapitated by members of the Nureddin al-Zenki rebel group on the back of a pick-up truck on a public road in Aleppo’s opposition-controlled Al-Mashhad neighbourhood.

In the grisly footage, rebels accused the boy of fighting with a pro-regime Palestinian faction known as the Al-Quds Brigade and said he was captured during fighting north of Aleppo city.

But the Al-Quds Brigade issued a statement denying the boy was a member, and describing him as an ordinary 12-year-old Palestinian refugee.

The Nureddin al-Zenki group condemned the act as a “violation” in a statement on Tuesday, describing it as an “individual mistake that does not represent the general policy of the group”.

The organisation said it had detained those involved in the murder and set up a judicial committee to investigate the incident and issue a verdict as soon as possible.

The killing was also condemned by the opposition Syrian National Coalition, which expressed “shock at the horrific scenes” and urged the faction to follow through on its pledge to investigate and punish the perpetrators.

Amnesty International said Wednesday that the beheading was the latest “abhorrent” sign that some opposition groups are carrying out serious abuses with impunity.

“This horrific video… suggests some members of armed groups have truly plumbed the depths of depravity,” said Philip Luther, head of Amnesty’s Middle East and North Africa programme

“It is yet another gruesome example of the summary killing of captives, which amounts to a war crime,” he said in a statement.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
