The single most deadliest act over the past 70 years by any Arab regime took place 30 years ago this week (February 1982) in the city of Hama, Syria.

The ‘incident’ as it is called, forever changed the psyche of the Syrian people.

Actually, this week we commemorate the 37th Anniversary of the #Hama #82Massacre. An event that for 30 yrs was only whispered about in peoples homes.

Thread.
Ordered by Hafez #Assad & carried out by his brother Rifaat, the people of #Hama were systematically massacred in response to uprising. Rifaat later bragged more than 38,0000 Hamwis (out of 150k ppl at the time) were slaughtered - whole family lines were ‘erased’. #82Massacre
