More brutal than the Syrian assault on Baba Amru?

I was thinking.  The lousy Syrian regime assault on Baba Amru is brutal.  But have there been more brutal cases? Certainly, the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 1982: which killed some 20,000 (mostly civilian) Lebanese, Palestinians, and Syrians in a matter of few months only.  Furthermore, the American assault on Fallujah was probably the most savage and brutal assault on a civilian quarter since the US incinerated city blocks, night after night, in Tokyo during WWII.
