Rebel forces in Syria killed as many as 190 civilians and seized more than 200 hostages during a military offensive in August, Human Rights Watch says.
...
A report by the New York-based group says the deaths occurred in villages inhabited predominantly by members of President Bashar al-Assad's minority Alawite sect near the city of Latakia.
...
"This operation was a co-ordinated, planned attack on the civilian population in these Alawite villages."
...
The report says ISIS [the 'Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant'] and Jaysh al-Muhajirin were [are]still holding the hostages, most of them women and children.
...
"The evidence strongly suggests that the killings, hostage taking, and other abuses committed by opposition forces on and after August 4 rise to the level of crimes against humanity," the report said.

Maybe John McCain needs to fly in for another photo op and he and Obama can run more munitions to their allies. When does US aid to the rebels rise to a war crime?

Ummmm, they are muslims; why is anyone surprised? That is what they do. Their training manual about how to treat prisoners incorporates allot of power tools. They seem to be fascinated with power drills especially.

Standard refrain from the neocon supporters of the Syrian rebels:

"Human Rights Watch is just part of Bashar Assad's Ministry of Propaganda, and this report was actually written by the Iranians or by Putin!"
