This ruthless killer has massacred Muslims all over Syria especially in Hamah. He destroyed Mosques, imprisoned innocent people and executed Muslims for no crimes whatsoever. His brother - Rif'aat al-Assad - was his ultimate death tool who personally tortured and killed Muslims. May Allah punish them all.
