Video: Lebanese family enjoys torturing Syrian refugee boy

Video: Lebanese family enjoys torturing Syrian refugee boy 

The video is extremely stressing and shocking. It shows the double humanitarian crime against the victim, and against the poor toddler who has been used to fulfill his parents' criminal and inhuman behavior and personality. 

We request all people who see the video to share it and publish it with translation to all languages to show the scale of the crime and force the Lebanese government to punish these people.
