This is a petition made for a young Syrian boy who was raped and filmed by three Lebanese men. A video of three men in Lebanon sexually assaulting a Syrian child who is estimated to be under the age of 13 has gone viral on social media, infuriating the local population.
The video showed the three young men kidnapping the child, beating him, and forcing him to engage in sexual acts with them, with rumours accusing the trio of raping the child.
He is seen trying to escape the abuse several times in the video.
According to Lebanese media, the child is of Syrian nationality and the incident occurred in the town of Sohmor, Western Bekaa.
One of the men was identified on social media and was forced to deactivate his Facebook after his profile was circulated, with reports confirming a number of threats made against him.
A lawsuit was also filed against the identified perpetrator.
Twitter users demanded the most severe punishment for the three young men, with some even suggesting the death penalty on them.
Lebanese authorities have yet to comment on the video.
We want you to sign this petition in order to receive justice for a Syrian young boy rape victim. This boy was raped and filmed by three men. They should be punished and be taken as an example for other shameless brutal rapists out there. We demand justice.
