The United Nations says Pro-government forces have reportedly executed scores of civilians in Aleppo, including women and children as the battle for Syria's largest city nears its end.
According to the UN rights office’s Rupert Colville, forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad have in some cases entered homes and killed those inside, and in others "caught and killed on the spot" fleeing civilians.
Colville called the situation "a complete meltdown of humanity".
Colville says government forces on Monday killed 82 civilians - including 13 children and 11 women - in the neighbourhoods of Bustan al-Qasr, al-Kalleseh, al-Firdous and al-Salheen - taken over that day by government forces.
At the same time the Secretary General of the Jamiatul Ulama South Africa Moulana Ebrahim Bham says the attack on Aleppo is inconceivable and speaks volumes about the lack of conscience and concern of humanity towards injustice.
Ml Bham says while there are massacres taking place across Syria, people should not lose hope in Allah.
“We never lose hope in the plan of Almighty Allah. Allah says in the Quran (Surah 14 Verse 42) Allah is not unaware of the doing of the oppressors. But it will weigh very heavily on the conscience of the ummah.”
Ml Bham has urged Muslims to make dua to Allah that He ease the plight of the people of Syria.
“Let us raise our voice not the least in making dua for the people of Syria.”
