UN observers today entered the village of Mazraat al-Qubeir to verify reports of mass killings in the village. After hours of coordination with local authorities and communities in the area, the observers were able to access the village at 3:30 local time.
Mazraat al-Qubier was empty of its own residents and thus the observers were not able to talk to anyone who witnessed Wednesday's horrific tragedy.
Upon the arrival of UN observers villagers from a neighbouring town came and spoke of what they heard and the relatives they lost.
Bmp tracks were visible in the vicinity. Some homes were damaged by rockets from bmps, grenades and a range of caliber weapons.
Inside some of the houses, the walls and floors were splatted with blood. Fire was still burning
outside houses and there was a strong stench of burnt flesh in the air.
The circumstances surrounding this crime are still unclear. The number and names of those killed are still not confirmed. The observers are still working to ascertain the facts.
The observers were not able to enter Mazraat al-Qubeir yesterday despite multiple attempts throughout the whole day. Their mission was obstructed by three factors:
• They are being stopped at Syrian Army checkpoints and in some cases turned back.
• Some of our patrols are being stopped by civilians in the area.
• We are receiving information from residents of the area that the safety of our observers is at risk if we enter village of Mazraat al-Qubeir.
