A newly - released video shows foreign - backed militants humiliating an elderly local celebrity in the Syrian northwestern city of Aleppo.
The footage showed that a militant put his foot on the head of the man, known as Yellow Man of Aleppo, asking him to bark and say that he loves the so-called Free Syrian Army. Other militants also humiliated the 70-year-old man by pulling his mustache. The man, whose real name is Abu Zakhour, dresses in yellow and is one of the famous characters of the touristic city of Aleppo. He earns his living from a salary offered by the municipality and taking photos with tourists. The video is another example of inhuman acts carried out by foreign-backed militants in Syria. Another footage posted on the internet on Sunday showed that a militant, named Khalid al Hamad, cut out the body of a dead Syrian soldier and bite into his organ. Al Hamad said in an interview with Time magazine on Tuesday that the video is real and that he did indeed take a bite of the soldier’s lung. The Syria crisis began in March 2011, and many people, including large numbers of soldiers and security personnel, have been killed in the violence. The Syrian government says that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the militants are foreign nationals.
