Aleppo

Aleppo is now a safe zone, Mr Trump

In a rather alarming development for Syrians hoping that the danger of a no-fly-zone had passed when the US electorate passed on Clinton, the new ‘pro-Russian’ President Trump has suggested ‘Safe Zones’ in Syria should be pursued, so that Syrian refugees would have somewhere to go when he stops them coming to America.

Watch as the Propaganda Juggernaut Moves on From Aleppo to Damascus

The Liberation of Aleppo didn't stop the Opposition juggernaut and its propaganda machine - now its '100,000 civilians under siege' on the outskirts of the capital, and four million hostages in Damascus...

Syria: Aleppo did not "fall." Aleppo was liberated

Interviews with Syrians in Aleppo regarding how they perceive the defeat of the 'rebels', whom they call terrorists. They feel they have been liberated and they consider that France and its allies (US-NATO) were keeping them imprisoned by supporting the terrorists. Arabic, French and English, with French and English subtitles. A number of christian church officials are interviewed.

How the terrorists used to starve the people in East Aleppo

Two videos: Day after day, they are discovering piles and piles of food, heating gasoline, medical equipment, and weapons in east Aleppo that are enough for hundreds of thousands to stay alive for years, coming from Turkey, Qatar, the US, and Saudi. Yet, they were stocking them and leave the civilians to starve, to keep the lies on the Syrian government and blame it for all the starving of the people.

ALEPPO UPDATES: Tears, Hugs and Smiles, the Relief of Escaping Imprisonment in East Aleppo

The momentum has shifted in Aleppo this week as the Syrian Army begin to advance, steadily driving out Western and Gulf-backed terrorist fighters under the command of Al Nusra Front – from their occupied enclaves in Eastern Aleppo. These images and videos will never see the light of day in the corporate media editing rooms because they expose their almost six year narrative on Syria as one of the most criminal propaganda projects ever deployed against a sovereign nation, its people, its state and its national army.

Update on Aleppo from US citizen in Syria

East Aleppo Update: Nov 28, 2016: My friend spoke by cell phone to her immediate relatives who are still held hostage inside East Aleppo. They have no food. Desperate to get out. As their houses are smashed, they simply move to a house which is in livable shape. They are trying to get out. They begged the Free Syrian Army to allow them to leave, the FSA said no. They waved a white flag from their window, thinking if the Syria Arab Army arrived, they could get evacuated, the FSA shot at them and told them to get rid of the white flag. They know that many people are getting out, from phone calls with others, who have said they got out and are checking on their status.

Soldier meets parents first time in 5 yrs as Syrian Army liberates Aleppo suburbs and villages

The very moving video inside shows a soldier hug his family after 5 years of separation, as a major suburb of Aleppo is retaken by Syria from the terrorists. The fighting in Aleppo, Syria, has been particularly protracted as it has been one of the last bastions of the terrorist forces that are trying to take over Syria. These forces are backed by the United States and NATO and their allies, which, shamefully, include Australia. The Syrian Arab Army has lost about 80,000 soldiers trying to defend Syria, which has a secular government, from takeover by militant religious fundamentalists. Most remaining Syrians are sheltered behind lines held by the Syrian Arab Army, although Australia, NATO and the US view this army as the 'enemy'.

Impeach Obama to avoid rush to War before Trump inauguration

Republished on the (real) Syrian Free Press, 15 Nov 2016. Article now includes two embedded videos.

Francis A. Boyle, Gadaffi's international lawyer and author of Destroying Libya and World Order, today (11 November 2016) said, on Pravda TV, that Obama can be existentially dangerous between now and inauguration day. He reminded people that Bush Sr invaded Somalia right after he lost to Bill Clinton. And the US/NATO announced on Monday that they were putting 300,000 troops on high alert. Boyle urges people to move forward with an impeachment campaign against Obama during the lame duck session of Congress because we do not want a war with Russia over Ukraine or Syria."

Assad to Swiss TV: Fighting terrorists is the way to protect civilians in Aleppo

During an interview on 19 October 2016 with Swiss TV SRF 1 TV Live, President Bashar al-Assad stressed that protecting civilians in Aleppo necessitates getting rid of the terrorists. He said, “Of course, it’s our mission according to the constitution and the law. We have to protect the people, and we have to get rid of those terrorists in Aleppo. That’s how we can protect civilians.” He added that it goes without saying that the way to protect the civilians in Aleppo is to attack the terrorists who hold the civilians under their control and are killing them.

Journo checks facts, finds 4000+ doctors in Aleppo, not 15

An egregious example of western misreporting on Syria has been a rash of articles focusing on 'rebel' complaints about how few doctors there are in Aleppo, for instance: Hugh Naylor, "The last few doctors still in Aleppo sent a letter to Obama pleading for help", Washington Post, August 11, 2016. (Actually referring to eastern Aleppo, held by terrorists.) Journalist Eva Bartlett decided to verify the situation by going to Aleppo herself. She reports what she found in a Crosstalk interview, "White Helmets, really?". Inside this article is the text of her comments and the video. See also, Eva Bartlett: "Western corporate media 'disappears' over 1.5 million Syrians and 4,000 doctors"

US policy in Syria places world at risk - Australians must inform themselves

Mimi al-Haram (aka 'Syrian Girl')'s shows a very thorough understanding of the conflicts within and from outside Syria and an ability to transmit the complexity in ways that make it possible for most of us to quickly grasp the issues. Her new video, embedded inside this candobetter.net article, explains just how unreasonable, dishonest and merciless the US-NATO policy is towards Syria and the Syrian people. If the Syrians or the Russians had responded in kind to America's acts of aggression on the last day of the ceasefire of the third week of September 2016, it is not hard to see how this action could be taken by the US and its allies to escalate the conflict much further, even to the point of an all-out nuclear war.

Reconciliation the only way forward in Syria - by Judith Bello

Here is a brief update on the activities of the US Peace Council delegation in Syria. We went to Ma'alula today [29 July 2016] and tomorrow most of us will fly home. I could spend many words and hours debunking every lie you have been told about Syria and Syrians in the last 5 years, a Sisyphean task in today’s environment. Instead I will share some of my perceptions of recent events based on my experiences in Damascus this week.

Yesterday [28 July] was quite an interesting day. We met with President Assad in the morning and talked at some length. We began by exchanging introductions and then we asked him some very serious questions. We were not allowed to record the session but many of us took at least some notes. He told us that his strongest focus is on representing the Syrian people and holding the state together on their behalf. He described numerous programs the Syrian state has enacted to protect the people during this very difficult time. The government has converted schools and other buildings into refugee centers. They continue to provide, to the best of their ability, free education and medical care to everyone in the government held areas; they supply power, clean water and food even to areas that are occupied by militants where it is possible.

Direct from Aleppo, Syria: The Ceasefire, Interventionist policy, and Aleppo news

[Article received from Aleppo, 9 March 2016, 19.20 Brisbane time]: This whole crisis, destruction, cleansing, uprooting people from their homes, poverty, the refugee problem, systematic destruction of infrastructure, raping women, beheading innocents, looting, erasing priceless heritage and historical and sacred buildings and architecture, creating all the zombie-like trash criminals that have invaded us from all over the world..... All that and a lot more, had been made in the name of gaining perhaps 3% more rights than the 80% of rights that Syrians already had. As result, Syrians have lost 80% of what they had before, and have not gained the 3% they were promised that foreign intervention would bring them. [Candobetter.net Editor: There has been some minor editing for clarity.]

Direct from Aleppo,Syria: News on life under cease-fire

Ceasefire agreement: Aleppo city is much more calmer since the beginning of the agreement, beside some violations took place the first hours of the agreement, and yesterday at 21:50, when 2 mortars shelled on the government held area, followed by ambulance sirens around 22:00. In general, so far, Aleppo city is so calmer than before. No shells, no jets in the sky, no clashes. 80% better than before.

Direct from Aleppo: Reaction to UN anti-Syrian Government, Anti-Russian propaganda

ALEPPO, SYRIA, 11 Feb 2016: Our correspondent writes: "President Assad is not exterminating his people. I'm still alive, and no one said a word to me. If something bad happened to me in the near future, it would be because of the terrorists' policy of extermination. I'm living happily because there are Syrian soldiers who are defending us in hot summers and cold winters. The UN is lying as usual in their reports about Aleppo and Syria in general."

Russian-Syrian Offensive Unmasks Western Media 'Journalism'

Great advances this week by the Syrian army and Russian air force have broken the rebel siege of two towns, and broken their umbilical link with Turkey. But they have also revealed the truth about Western media 'journalism'...

Something really significant happened this week. It wasn’t the last-ditch attempts to find a peaceful solution to the Syrian conflict in Geneva, or their failure. Neither was it the game-changing developments on the ground in Syria and the tightening of the noose around the foreign-backed terrorist armies – though this was certainly ‘significant’.

Imaginary hospitals targeted in Syria?

ALEPPO, SYRIA: Since the Russians began helping the Syrian Arab Army to drive ISIS out, a jealous United States, furious that its goal of destroying Syria might yet fail, has spitefully disseminated unconfirmed stories aimed at discrediting Russia's motives and performance. The latest by British Airforce doctor, David Nott, who has also been associated with the charity Syria Relief, alleges that Russia has been purposefully destroying hospitals in Syria.[1] This is ironic when the US itself was so recently caught out bombing a Doctors without Borders manned-hospital in Afghanistan in what almost no-one denies was a blatant war crime.[2] In Syria, the roads supplying food and fuel to Aleppo have only just been reconnected since being cut off by ISIS a few days ago, in attacks that appear to have been facilitated by the US. But ISIS continues to be refueled with fighters who come in via Australia's ally, Turkey, where Muslim Brotherhood supporter, President Erdogan, is seeking to change the laws to make himself a full dictator. Our correspondent in Aleppo, Syria, vents his disgust at these beat-ups.

Obama's bombs in Syria plunge entire city of Aleppo into darkness

ALEPPO, SYRIA 31 October 2015: The fact that ISIS just seized a critical section the Aleppo-Khanasser highway, cutting off the government’s supply-lines to Aleppo was a major setback. (See reference article, "US colluding with ISIS? U.S. Stopped Syria Air Strikes While Nusra And IS Prepared Attack On Government Supply Route.")

And that might explain why the US decided to bomb Aleppo’s main power plant last week plunging the entire city into darkness; because Obama wants to “rubbleize” everything on his way out. Keep in mind, that the local water treatment plants require electrical power, so by blowing up the plant, Obama has condemned tens of thousands of civilians to cholera and other water-born diseases.

US colluding with ISIS? US stopped Syria air strikes while Nusra and ISIS prepared attack on government supply route

During the last days a large attack on the Syrian government supply line to Aleppo city was carried out by Jabhat al-Nusra (aka al-Qaeda in Syria) and the Islamic State seemingly in coordination with the U.S. military.

During September the U.S. anti-IS coalition carried out an average of 4.2 airstrikes on IS in predominately east Syria. This after an average of 6.8 per day in August. The rate in October was about the same as in September until Thursday October 22. Then, according to the U.S. Military Times, the strike rate decreased markedly:

Aleppo, Syria, awaits with hope for Russian intervention against terrorists

ALEPPO, SYRIA, October 5, 2015: I hesitated about sending this information, as it's only a little detail in a huge long conflict. Then I thought it was better to share such photos, the ones you never see in the daily propaganda against Syria and its people and government, who are facing such random attacks daily. I also talk about how Syrians seem to feel about Russia coming to help defend us against the terrorists.

Terrorist 'rebel' cooking-gas cylinder bombs destroy cars in Christian section of Aleppo 20 Sept 2015

ALEPPO, SYRIA: These vehicles look as if they were burned out years ago, but it was only a couple of nights ago. This damage done by 'rebels' took place in the Christian area (mixed residential and commercial) in Aleppo. The strategy is to make pressure on families to leave their homes, cities, and country.

Did terrorists who took Syrian military air base today in blinding sandstorm have western satellite support?

"Deja Vu in Northern Syria: Jabhat Al-Nusra Captures the Abu Al-Dhuhour Military Airport" by Leith Fadel, 10 September 2015, reports that the Syrian Al-Qaeda faction “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and their affiliate group “Jund Al-Aqsa”, have captured the north Syria military airbase, "Abu Al-Dhuhour Military Airport, from the Syrian Arab Army and the Al-Daher Hawks Brigade after a long and costly battle for both parties involved." The author of this article, resident in Syria, suspects that these terrorist groups had access to information from western satellites because he finds it inconceivable that, while everyone else in the area was blinded by a sandstorm, the terrorists could somehow still operate effectively.

A Syrian in Aleppo's take on the Syrian 'refugee crisis' and the West's war against Syria

ALEPPO, SYRIA, 8 SEPTEMBER 2015: I have several points that I would like to share with you, they might shed a light or help us understand what's really going on. They might be unrelated, contradicted, or has an argumentative nature. I'll share my own ideas, and those of my Syrian friend who moved to Germany 2-3 years ago.

- The hysteric focus on the immigrants to Europe, is to create a public opinion, to support the European governments and armies to interfere in Syria, under humanitarian grounds. It's like scaring their people: "If we don't go to war, Europe will be invaded by Muslims, Arabs, Africans, and Asians."

Surviving in Aleppo, Syria, today under the 'rebel' attacks - July 2015

ALEPPO, SYRIA, July 27, 2015: Three stories from our Syrian correspondent in Aleppo. First he writes about the difficulties a Syrian taxi-driver encounters in travelling from one part of Aleppo to another, through 'rebel' occupied territory. The writer then describes some of the moves and countermoves between Syrian Arab Army, defending Aleppo, and 'rebels', as the rebels try to blow parts of the city up. He then inventories a number of public buildings recently damaged or destroyed as a result of these battles in Aleppo. Finally, in the section entitled, "Socially", he describes how humans have been destroyed and deformed, amputated, kidnapped, impoverished, sold into prostitution, whilst others have made strange new careers in terrorism as 'rebel's. And how such rebels contaminate peoples' homes with human faeces in order to drive them out. Candobetter.net editor: Title changed to locate Aleppo and politics on 3 August 2015.

Aleppo, Syria: Syrian government allocates water in crisis caused by ISIS capture of river

ALEPPO, SYRIA. 12 July 2015: The water crisis is getting bigger. We are boiling water and cooling it to make it clean to drink. A couple of days ago, the Syrian Government took over all water from the water sellers, who are blackmailing the people and asking expensive price for the water. Government and military officers distributed 500 litres per household for free. This pleased many but annoyed others who wanted more and were ready to pay for it. Yesterday's water prices doubled! Many say that the water (which comes from a dam on the Euphrates, which is under the terrorists' control) reached the Sleimaniyyé sector of the city, where the distribution station is located. So it needs couple of days to reach to our house.

Syria: Where America drops barrel bombs filled with lies

One of the main reasons I hate Wall Street and War Street is that they are usually lying through their teeth to us. Fortunately, however, there are usually actual eye-witnesses to what really happened as well, and these actual eye-witnesses are always calling Wall Street and War Street out for their lies -- but none of that even seems to matter. Remember all the lies we were told about Vietnam? Iraq? Afghanistan? Libya? Palestine? Bosnia? Ukraine? Panama? Guatemala? Granada? And how we were always warned about these lies? And yet all those "wars" went on anyway.

Aleppo, Syria: 2nd-3rd July 2015 attacks - Please stop blaming the Syrian Government

ALEPPO, SYRIA: We didn't sleep all the night. The attacks of yesterday 2nd July started around afternoon and continued up till today 8:30 am 3rd July. They said that 3-4 civilians died, but 87 civilians injured. The ambulance voices didn't stop all night long. You had to hear the people over here in Aleppo. Aren't they Syrians? After all these years and after all these attacks on them and after they lost their income sources and family members, they are asking the Syrian army to terminate the terrorist attackers and their nests, which have become like cancer in Syria's body. They don't care if that termination happens by chemical weapons, bombs, or whatever.

911 TV stations beaming mostly nonsense disorganise the Middle East

A report from a Syrian returning to war-torn Aleppo, Syria, for family reasons. He complains that the Middle East is saturated with commercial, religious and political propaganda, most of it broadcast from overseas. The effect is to disorganise the locals and keep them ignorant of what is happening, and the creation of many splinter groups. The author wonders if governments in the west would tolerate the same disorganising effect that they seem to promote and accept for countries in the 'third world'.

ISIS controlling water supply to Aleppo and chlorine factory but UN blaming Syrian Government

ALEPPO, SYRIA: We have received the following report, which attests to knowledge of ISIL using chlorine as a chemical weapon and controlling water supply from the Tishrin Dam on the Euphrates.
