Radical rebels execute 10 civilians in southern Syria: report

DAMASCUS, March 8 (Xinhua) -- A radical rebel group executed about 10 civilians in Syria's southern province of Daraa, the official SANA news agency reported on Saturday.

The report cited online video footage which showed that several armed masked men forced a group of civilians to kneel on the ground for execution. Ten people, including an elderly man and a 10-year-old kid, were killed in a fusillade of bullets fired at close range.

The elderly man begged for his life, while his executioner showed no pity to him but urged another masked militant to execute the 10-year-old boy.

SANA said the massacre took place in Daraa, while activist reports said it was in a town in the northern province of Aleppo and blamed the jihadist Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) for committed the killing.

The ISIL, imposing a radical Islamic rule in the areas under their control, have recently been engaged in fights against other radical groups across Syria.

The Syrian government has for long accused regional countries of supporting such radical groups, which try to establish an Islamic state in Syria.
