Syrian Sunni Rebels Kill 11 Christians During Attack On Checkpoint…

Think about it, the U.S. is backing Muslim radicals killing Christians, and the low information voters don’t have a problem with that?

Via Reuters:

    Syrian rebels killed at least 11 people, including civilians, in an attack on a checkpoint west of the city of Homs on Saturday that official state media described as a massacre.

    Most of those killed were Christians, activists and residents said. Some were from the National Defence Army, a militia which fights alongside President Bashar Assad’s soldiers, and others were civilians, they said.

    “Terrorists today committed a massacre, killing 11 people … in Homs countryside,” the state news agency SANA quoted an official as saying.

    The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said rebel gunmen had attacked the checkpoint, killing five militia fighters and six civilians, including two women. It said the rebel fighters had also sustained losses.

    A resident who visited the site of the overnight attack said he saw the remains of a destroyed checkpoint and two civilian cars nearby, whose passengers may have been caught up by chance in the fighting.

    He said the checkpoint had been used as an artillery base to bombard the rebel town of Hosn, about 2 km (1 mile) away, which lies below the towering Crusader castle Crac des Chevaliers
