Syrian government forces have been blamed by residents for attacking and killing thousands of civilians, including hundreds of children, as part of the ongoing crackdown on the country’s 11-month uprising.

Two fathers in central Damascus, which has experienced a protest movement smaller than other cities like Homs, Hama and Idlib due to a heavier presence of security forces, tell Al Jazeera how their sons were either murdered or shot by troops.
