Syrian man walks in on his own funeralA man walked in on his own funeral after he was presumed dead following a series of deadly airstrikes by the Syrian Army Air Force which left over 100 people dead.

According to the activists, Mohammed Rayhan woke up from under the rubble after 36 hours and made his way home where his family members believed he was among those killed since he failed to come home.

The activists further added that Rayhan was in the market which was bombed by the Syrian Air Force that left at least 117 people dead including 16 children and 7 women.

With dust still covering his hair and beard, Rayhan arrived just in time to disrupt the final day of his own as wakes typically last three days.

London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said stories similar as the one of Mohammed Rayhan “happens many times in Syria now”.

Rami Abdurrahman, the activist group’s director, told The Independent “Lots of people go missing, get lost in rubble, and only turn up later.”

He said “It often happens with children – I have heard of three-year-old children who have been mourned by their families and then found alive in rubble.”

At least six missiles were fired by the Syrian Army on Douma which is a densely-populated residential area with the regime forces saying the bombing was in response to the mortars that exploded in central Damascus last week, killing six people.

Stephen O’Brien, the UN’s most senior humanitarian official, said he was “appalled” by the total disrespect for civilian life “on both sides” and “reports of air strikes causing scores of civilian deaths”.
