Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu condemned the recent massacre in Syria's Houla, expressing "revulsion" and placing blame for the incident squarely on Syrian President Bashar Assad. Netanyahu joins a growing chorus of condemnation by world powers, including the United Nations, the United States, Russia, the Gulf Cooperation Council and the European Union.




Forces loyal to President Bashar Assad killed 116 people, mostly women and children, on Friday in Houla in Homs province, in one of the biggest massacres of the 14-month uprising against his rule. Syrian authorities have denied carrying out the massacre, instead blaming it on "terrorists."
