The latest horrifying video from Syria shows yet another attack on a bakery where innocent people were just trying to buy bread.
Screaming men are seen hauling the body of a child into a taxi as other victims zip past. ¬†Mangled bodies lie alongside piles of blood-soaked bread in the grainy images posted on social media.
Col. Abdu Jabar Agadi of the rebel Free Syrian Army tells CNN Syrian troops shelled the location Tuesday in Aleppo, killing dozens, and rebels didn't have the weapons to retaliate. ¬†"The bakery was intentionally targeted by the regime to terrorize the residents," he said.
Syria, which continually blames violence on "terrorists," didn't immediately weigh in on the latest attack. ¬†On state-run media it said it had "eliminated one of the most dangerous armed terrorist groups" in Aleppo.
In the past, Syria it has said its forces¬†killed terrorists near a bakery, uncovered a terrorists' warehouse near a bakery, and found a bakery owner who was murdered by terrorists.
Human Rights Watch said in August that 10 bakeries had been bombed in Aleppo province alone. ¬†In one attack, at least 60 people died.
The World Food Programme says about 1.2 million people are displaced inside Syria, and¬†about 1.5 million people will be in urgent need of food assistance over the next few months. ¬†A recent assessment, which had the help of the Syrian government, found that up to 3 million people are expected to be in need of food over the coming year.
