UNSMIS video of mission to Al-Haffeh city after it was recaptured by the Syrian army from terrorist militias (video 1). This excellent video shows the type of reform that can be achieved by armed terrorist militias rampaging in a city and trying to force their views on people by force.
The following is the description provided by UNSMIS, and indicates widespread destruction and killing at the hands of the militias, not even sparing residential homes. The report also indicates the use of artillery by terrorist militias:
"UN observers entered al-Haffeh today and reported their preliminary findings. In these amateur footage shot by an observer, the town appeared deserted. Most Government institutions, including the post office, were set on fire from inside. Archives were burnt, stores were looted and set on fire, residential homes appeared rummaged and the doors were open. The Baath Party Headquarters in the town was shelled and appeared to be the site of heavy fighting. Remnant of heavy weapons and a range of caliber arms were found in the town. Cars, both civilian and security were also set on fire and damaged.
A strong stench of dead bodies was in the air and there appeared to be pockets in the town were fighting is still ongoing.
The number of casualties is still unclear."
Video 2: Recent video of 'Free Syrian Army'/Al-Qaeda in Syria provided for the sake of propagandists who say that artillery is not in the hands of the terrorist militias. Such propaganda is found even in some media which should know better, and appears to deliberately distort facts.
