This video, uploaded by Syrian democracy activists on May 27, 2012, depicts a young boy named Ali Adil al-Sayyid. He describes watching his parents and siblings murdered by the Syrian army and pro-Assad paramilitaries known as Shabbiha. He claims to have survived the massacre by playing dead while security forces shot his mother, kidnapped his father, and looted their home.

He also claims that his uncles, arrested during the raid, were subsequently shown on Syrian TV the following day being forced to claim that their children were killed by "armed gangs" fighting against the Syrian government.
