From left to right: Issa Aiash, 30, father of three, his young brother Ahmed, 17, and Sheihk Mamoud, 42, father of a newborn son, laugh and joke as they clean their post Saturday.
A call comes through that a tank was spotted nearby. The men immediately grab weapons. (Peaceful protesters)
Within seconds the tank blast has hit.
Debris and smoke fill the street around 30 meters back – covering the reporter and the camera in dust.
This man was the only survivor
He escaped with injuries.
It took several minutes before the dust cleared enough to check for more survivors, but there was nothing they could do.
The moral of this story : Don’t come to Syria armed and ready for war for you will get the Karma that you deserve.
