The Syrian regime’s plan to affix the term “morally nihilistic terrorists” in the minds of the people in the city of Homs has not succeeded — a term it used for the Free Syrian Army in the city at the time — in contrast to the acts and behaviors of its loyalist class, ahead of what even mafias have done in foreign countries.
The exit of fighters from the city in 2014 was not sufficient to return security to Homs. Instances of kidnapping, killing and theft are dominant today in its loyalist districts, feeding a phenomenon which frightens its supporters.
Civilians in the districts under regime control in Homs describe these instances and phenomena of moral decay in light of its submission to the authority of militias supporting Assad forces, which have become impossible to stop.
