The massacre in Houla is starting to seem like it could be the final straw in Syria, as international pressures are mounting and everyone seems to be running out of patience with Bashar al-Assad's regime.
The monitors from the U.N. said that more than 90 people were killed, including 32 children under the age of 10, and hundreds more were wounded.
The Syrian government is blaming "armed terrorist groups" for the attack, a line they've used every time there's a new incident. A spokesman for the Foreign Affairs Ministry, pictured above, said the "Brutal killing doesn’t belong to the ethics of the Syrian army." He said that Syria is facing a "tsunami of lies" following the incident.
The U.N. is tired of putting up with the excuses from the Syrian government. In a statement released after the U.N. monitors were able to enter the city, the U.N. seems to be holding the Syrian government accountable for the attacks. According to the statement, the monitors concluded that most of the deaths were from shelling and artillery fire. The statement calls the Houla massacre an, "appalling and brutal crime involving indiscriminate and disproportionate use of force" and called it, "a flagrant violation of international law" and accused the Syrian government of breaking the ceasefire, and concluded that "Those responsible for perpetrating this crime must be held to account."
