Children under the fire of the Syrian opposition
The anti-Syrian "opposition", for the interests of which many of our unscrupulous "partners" advocate this way, once again distinguished itself by committing mass infanticide. October 13 in the city of Aleppo in the quarter of Al-Sulaymaniyah, under the control of the Syrian army, the militants fired at a bus stop near one of the schools. At a time when there was a crowd of children, the terrorists fired several missiles at her.
The Syrian Agency SANA in the wake of the crime reported two dead schoolgirls. The film crew of the TV channel "Russia 24" announced seven small victims. Currently, Syrians in social networks are already talking about the eight dead schoolchildren - wounded children die in hospital beds.
Reports of mortar and rocket attacks from the terrorists of the “Dzhebhat An-Nusra” (organization banned in Russia) and the “moderate opposition” groups that collaborate with it come from Aleppo almost every day. Only October 12 caused similar attacks on the Al-Manshiya, Al-Sheikh Taha and Bustan Al-Bash neighborhoods to kill five civilians and injured 13. And in the evening of October 10, under the blows of the “opposition” militants, the Al-Hamdania quarter was found - four people were killed, 14 were injured.
As the Syrian doctors say, since the beginning of September, at least 130 children of Aleppo have become victims of terrorist attacks. These are the results of the registration of patients from the two main hospitals of the city - Central and Ar-Rai. In fact, the victims are probably even more, as there are other hospitals, including private ones, to which the wounded are also brought.
The so-called "antiterrorist coalition" led by the US is not far behind the terrorists. So, on October 5, the village of Sulsana, located in 50 kilometers north of Aleppo, was subjected to “erroneous” air strikes of this “coalition”. This tragedy claimed the lives of 20 civilians and injured people around 40. Among the dead - three children. And - no apologies, no statements about the investigation, nothing like the United States likes to trump.
At the same time, Washington stubbornly refuses to bomb Dzhebhat An-Nusru, one of the most radical groups, which, like the Islamic State, is banned in many countries and officially declared terrorist. State Department spokesman Mark Toner recently even made a special statement about this. Its essence was that the bombings of “Dzhebhat an-Nusra” are not carried out due to the fact that “their positions are near civilians". According to Toner, the United States previously carried out attacks on this grouping, but they had to be stopped, "when the militants moved into residential areas."
The harsh truth is that for the US, the proximity of civilians has never been a deterrent if they really wanted to bomb someone.
Now let us think: Toner recognized the obvious truth. Both Syria and Russia have been talking about this for a long time: militants of the terrorist organization “Dzhebhat An-Nusra” moved into residential areas. But it is not enough to say “a” - you need to say “b”. If the terrorists are in residential areas, what should be the first priority? The answer is obvious - do everything so that they come out.
This is what Syria insists on. The high command of the Army and the Armed Forces of the SAR 6 of October called on militants to lay down weapon or leave Aleppo. Stacked weapons guaranteed amnesty. (This is a true gesture of goodwill, considering how much evil these criminals caused the soldiers of Syria and their families).
It was precisely to the withdrawal of terrorists from the city that the draft resolution proposed by Russia to the UN Security Council was sent by Russia. But this project, which would really alleviate the situation of the civilian population and would promote a cease-fire in Aleppo, shamefully failed the Western countries.
As a result, “Dzhebhat An-Nusra” and other criminal groups that closely cooperate with it see the position of the West as a signal: they should not leave the city, taking advantage of the peace offer of the Syrian army, as well as the UN special envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura. Militants officially declare that they will not leave Aleppo. Why? Yes, because they have no signal from overseas.
Moreover, the terrorists mined all the humanitarian corridors that civilians could take. Because these civilians are needed "oppositionists" as a human shield. Mining is directed against those militants who would like to get away from senseless slaughter.
A discussion has now begun on a new draft resolution of the UN Security Council. This time he was promoted by New Zealand. Judging by the incoming data, this is a slightly modified failure project, recently launched by France. It contains all the same “requirements to put an end to attacks leading to the death of civilians” (only addressed to terrorists), the introduction of 48-hour “humanitarian pauses” (oh, how many of those pauses already, which in the end contributed only to gangs! ) and other similar verbal husks, which do not give an answer to the main question - and how can you still remove terrorists from the residential areas of Aleppo?
At the same time, the Permanent Representative of Britain to the UN, Matthew Rycroft, has already announced that his country will support this draft resolution. In the coming days, we should expect increased pressure on Russia to support the document as well. Or else - there will be another wave of anti-Russian hysteria.
This hysteria is already in full swing, and they are trying to exert pressure on Russian diplomats by showing them photographs of suffering children. So, CNN journalist Christian Amanpour, during an interview with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, showed him a photograph of the injured Syrian boy Omran Daknish, who was taken out in August from the ruins in Aleppo. Allegedly, the child was injured in the air strikes of the Russian Air Force.
On this occasion, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that the author of the story about this boy, Syrian "oppositionist" Mahmud Arslan, a few days before the photo was distributed, was happy to take pictures with terrorists of the Nureddin Az-Zengi group. And this is the very group that executed the Palestinian boy who was abducted from the hospital. The footage of this execution - through decapitation - showed the same CNN television channel.
That is, the children who died at the hands of terrorists did not become symbols of this monstrous war unleashed against Syria and its people. But as a symbol of supposedly Russian “aggression”, a snapshot comes from a dubious and obviously biased source. This picture does not hesitate to even poke in the face of the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry. And who pokes in the face of all these toners, kirby, clintons, obamam and others like them - but at least this photo of schoolchildren who died during the shelling of the Al-Suleymaniyah quarter in Aleppo on October 13?
Meanwhile, on October 12, the second in recent days, the Russian embassy in Damascus was shelled by the anti-Syrian “opposition”. Mortar shells were fired by the militants Jobar. By luck, no one was hurt. But it is clear that the pressure on Moscow is not only political, diplomatic and informational.
Despite all the tragedy of the article, I would like to finish it well the news. In Aleppo, the Syrian army took control of the height of Sheikh Saeed in eastern Aleppo. In the province of Hama, military personnel cleared the village of Maan from terrorists (previously tragically known in connection with massacre by militants in February 2014 g.).
And on the fertile Syrian coast, in Tartus, a massive demonstration of Syrian solidarity with the people of Yemen suffering from Saudi aggression, as well as in support of the army and the leadership of the SAR, took place. Residents of the city, nearby villages, as well as the islands of Arwad signed a huge letter 10 kilometers long - in support of the courageous soldiers of their homeland and the legitimately elected President Bashar Al-Assad.
