Preliminary investigation: Syria anti-gov't groups committed Houla massacre
Lebanon News
Syria said on Thursday a preliminary investigation showed that anti-government armed groups committed a massacre last week in Houla, in which 108 people were killed, with the aim of encouraging foreign military intervention against the Syrian government.    

Brigadier General Qassem Jamal Suleiman, head of the investigation committee formed by the government, said the victims were families "who refused to oppose the government and were at odds with the armed groups".    

He said many of the victims were relatives of a member of the Syrian parliament.

After this declaration, the flow of international reactions began. The US envoy to the UN considered the results of Syria inquiry into Houla massacre a “blatant lie”.
