Video footage recorded Aug. 10 appears to show Syrian opposition militants killing office workers by pushing them off the roof of a post office that had been seized by the group, daily Hürriyet reported.
 
Armed militia is seen in the video as they take over the post office in a town in Aleppo and kill all officials working at the post office one by one by forcing them off the roof of the building.
 
Officials who refuse to leave their posts following their takeover by militants are labeled as regime supporters and frequently executed by members of the anti-government forces, according to Hürriyet.
 
While militants have said the executions are conducted in response to secret ties with pro-regime militias, independent sources in the area have yet to confirm the claims.
 
Previous executions by Syrian opposition members have also been recorded and released on the web.

The Brothers have support for what they are doing in both the Quran and ahadith. Does anyone remember what happened at Badr and the ayah that was revealed as a result? This is the month to get reaquainted with the Quran.

In a war, there are rarely any innocents.

Ataturk said "Unless the life of a nations is in peril war is a crime".What is happening is a full blown war,this happens in wars.For the moment it appears to be two sides oppostion and Assads army.The problem is after Assads leaves,will it, turn to Sectarian war?,Assad will try to turn it into sectarian war, useing his chemical weapons as a last resort,most of the cities in Oppostion hands are in rubbles,Assad is turning Syria into rubble before he goes,he wont leave any buildings standing.

Just because they are fighting a bad guy, does not necessariy make them good. If they win, we simply will have to see what will happen. History is full of freedom fighters who have turned into horrible dictators and created horrible regimes after their victory. Just look at Cuba, Iran for example and we do not yet know where Egypt or Lybia are heading heading. Even Saddam Hussein started as a freedom fighter, and he created a regime which killed 300 000 of his own people (and tortured and raped)

It is true to say the opposition possibly has killed innocent people, thus if there is proof (Photos) they should be punished; It is also possible that other countries are responsible for Syria uprising; it is also fair to say however the same was said about Egypt, Libya, and Tunisia;Nevertheless most of the blame lies with the Culture and traditions which was left to them by the elders,that a Rooster rules the roost for ever; let’s remind us that some of the blame also lies with the moble phone

Im against such actions never-the-less support toppling Syrian regime. Its clear its good vs bad; we need to support good. Taking down Assad without a doubt is good, just & positive for her citizens. This cause should be promoted, supported, intensified. The sooner he goes, less will die & sooner Syrians will be free. Though supporting overall mission we must speak out against such crimes (persecute them in future) yet it must not stop the overall mission of promoting freedom, justice in Syria.

Some show this video to Turkish government and Hillary who claim these are freedom fighters. I know incidences when these militants slaughter and behead people and hang their bodies in prominent places.
