Syrian opposition fighters previously based in the town of al-Janoudyah told Human Rights Watch that government forces placed civilians in front of its tanks during its attack on the town on March 10, 2012. Human Rights Watch also gathered footage from an activist in Kafr Nabl, which he says shows Syrian forces using residents as human shields in late February 2012.
