Militants in Syria's volatile governorate of Aleppo have massacred 123 people after they gained more power with receiving fresh packs of heavy arms from their foreign supporters.

The official SANA news agency reported on Saturday that most victims of the massacre committed by the armed terrorists in Khan al-Assal town were civilians.

The armed terrorist group, Ansar al-Khalifa Brigade, admitted committing the massacre in Khan al-Assal. The group’s militants mutilated the dead bodies and threw them in a big hole outside the town. They also incinerated a number of the dead bodies.

Most of the town is currently under the control of the militants.

A Russian-led inquiry has already revealed that militants carried out a chemical attack in Khan al-Assal on the edge of the northern city of Aleppo in March, which killed 26 people.

On May 6, UN investigator, Carla Del Ponte, said testimony from victims of the conflict in Syria suggests militants have used the nerve agent, sarin.

Sarin is a colorless and highly toxic nerve agent that can cause convulsions, paralysis and death within minutes if it is absorbed through inhalation, ingestion, or contact with skin or eyes.

The recent massacre came as the Western governments continue providing the militants with weapons.

Reports say that Saudi Arabia has signed a 50-million-dollar deal with Israeli army to supply the militants with old Israeli military equipment and arms.

The weapons include different kinds of anti-tank missiles, military vehicles, artillery equipment, and night vision devices.

The war in Syria started in March 2011, when pro-reform protests turned into a massive insurgency following intervention of western and regional states.

The unrest, which took in terrorist groups from across Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, has transpired as one of the bloodiest conflicts in recent history.

As the foreign-backed insurgency in Syria continues without an end in sight, the US government boosts its political and military support to Takfiri extremists.

Washington has remained indifferent about warnings by Russia and other world powers about the consequences of arming militant groups.
