ALEPPO: RASHIDEEN MASSACRE TESTIMONY – A MOTHER’S VOICE and the Bus Drivers’ speak out. 16/4/2017

Survivor/witnesses’ tell us of their harrowing ordeal the day following the massacre.  They tell how their children were lured to their deaths with chips and biscuits and the 48 hours they endured on the buses.  The death toll; 240 civilians, including 116 children.

We looked Zeinab al Sheikh, and the other survivors in their eyes as they told us of the loss of their families and friends.  Zeinab held Vanessa’s hand for a long time.  She then took one of mine and squeezed it tight in both of hers.  We held eye contact for ever so long as she keep a tight grip on my hand, then she bent forward and kissed me on both cheeks.  I don’t know who was comforting who, or maybe it was just a moment of understanding between mothers.  Her bravery was beyond measure and she is imprinted on my soul.

Jebrin – old man weeps as he remembers the children massacred the previous day.

Two of the bus drivers speak.  These drivers were not present at the interview with Zeinab Sheikh and the other witnesses.  They were in a completely different location to the IDPs.  We came upon them by chance when we stopped to inspect the buses.  These eyewitness reports corroborate one another.

Inside one of the buses. Chips and water bottles among the shattered glass.
