Activists in Aleppo have responded to the popular #SaveKasab movement, which warns of rebel attacks against the predominately Armenian town, by launching their own social media campaign to remind the world of the suffering inflicted by the regime in Syria's second city.Around 50 people were killed, although it was impossible to confirm the exact number because body parts were mangled and widely spread, according to Mohammad al-Khatieb, an activist with the Aleppo Media Center and one of those behind #SaveAleppo said.If there is a genocide, Aleppine activists say, it is not happening in Kasab, but in Aleppo.The genocide against civilians is taking place in Aleppo; that is what deserves the public's attention," another campaigner for #SaveAleppo told The Daily Star.He estimated that 2,000 people had been killed by barrel bomb strikes in the city this year. A particularly brutal six-week period of barrel bomb strikes at the beginning of the year killed around 750 people, according to activists. The #SaveAleppo movement has attracted 30,000 followers on Facebook in two days.
