German Paper: Syrian Rebels Committed Houla Massacre


The German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

has run two articles alleging that Syrian Sunni rebels committed the Houla massacre,

reporting that the victims were largely from Alawi and Shia minorities in Houla.

.

This is important

because the Syrian government has been blamed for the massacre

and the massacre

has been invoked as a justification

for foreign military intervention.

.
Here are the articles:
