US-Supported Terrorist Atrocities in Syria

US-Supported Terrorist Atrocities in Syria

by Stephen Lendman

They’re committed daily in various parts of Syria, especially in northern areas near Turkey’s border and suburban Damascus.

Scoundrel media headlines scream Russian and Syrian airstrikes continuing during (fantasy) cessation of hostilities  and (farcical) peace talks - on life support, breathing hard, effectively dead.

The London-based, Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, publishes regular pro-Western press releases, one-sided conflict reports.

It claimed daily Russian and  government bombardment of Aleppo since April 22 killed 250 mostly civilians, ended ceasefire and caused peace talks to collapse.

Terrorists Washington and its rogue allies call “moderate rebels” are entirely responsible for civilian deaths, targeting residential areas and other nonmilitary sites, murdering noncombatant men, women and children in cold blood, at times with chemical and other banned weapons.

A US warplane destroyed the Doctors Without Borders Aleppo hospital. Russia and Syria were wrongfully blamed.

Heavy area fighting continues. State Department spokesman admiral John Kirby said John Kerry wants Russia to pressure Assad to stop what he called “indiscriminate aerial attacks” in Aleppo.

Russian and Syrian warplanes conduct precision strikes solely against terrorist targets. 

On Saturday, Deputy Russian Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said Moscow won’t pressure (Damascus) because” the battle for Aleppo is about combating terrorism - authorized under Security Council Res. 2254.

Moscow wants known terrorist groups Jaysh al-Islam and Ahrar ash-Sham added to the Security Council list.

Assad rightfully considers all armed groups killing Syrian nationals terrorist groups. They’re imported US-supported death squads, what media scoundrels never explain - blaming government and Russian forces for their crimes.

Liberating Syria requires eliminating them, defeating the scourge America created.
