Firstly how dare the western media and governments condemn Russia over Syria look what the American's and British did to Iraq and Libya, they have destroyed those countries. Russia is trying to help the legal Syrian government whereas the American and British removed the governments in Iraq and Libya.
It is a huge lie by the USA and the western world that the Syrian Government instigated a chemical attack at the Khan Sheikhoun in Idlib province, April 2017. The Americans tried blaming the Syrian government for the 2013 Ghouta Chemical attack but proof was provided that it was the rebels who were behind the attack. Are we supposed to believe that this time it was the Syrian government? For what reason? What would they achieve, they know the world would condemn it and that they would face retaliation. They were winning the war without any chemical attacks so why would they do that, well they wouldn’t would they?
Two days after this supposed Chemical attack by the Syrian government Donald Trump sends in 59 cruise missiles (April 2017) to destroy a Syrian airbase. How is that justified before any investigation has taken place?
The Russian Defense
Ministry claims that only 23 of 59 missiles reached the intended target, with
the remainder landing in nearby villages. Syrian media sources are reporting
that nine civilians died in the attack, four children.
It is sheer hypocrisy from the Americans because Israel killed 2400 Palestinians in 2014 during ‘operation protective edge’ which killed 500 children but the USA did not condemn this in fact they applauded it but somehow what Syria has done in trying to protect itself from a rebel takeover deserves 59 cruise missiles. This proves that the USA and its Jewish Zionist control is behind ISIS. Because by trying to take out the Syrian air force it gives ISIS a better chance to take back ground in Syria which it had lost.
America dropped tons of phosphorus bombs on Iraq killing hundreds of thousands civilians but that is ok I guess. What we need in America is regime change, they need to blow away with the wind and never return and only then will we have world peace.
Britain and America sells arms to Saudi Arabia which they use to kill 10,000 civilians in Yemen. What hypocrisy by the western governments.
The US, UK and France have been exposed as relying on fake news sources, including the al-Qaeda affiliated White Helmets, as a basis for their condemnation, in spite of the fact that the clear evidence indicates that the chemical weapons in question belonged to a terrorist group and not the Syrian government which forfeited its chemical weapons stock in 2013.
US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley become unhinged and threatened that the US may take action unilaterally in light of the resolution being vetoed. If this means military action against the government of Syria, this of course would be a violation of international law.
Looking at the bigger picture it is the Illuminati Jewish Zionists that control the USA, Britain, and France and the Western media. The BBC, Sky, CNN, ABC (fake news) all jump on the Zionist bandwagon and say Syria are using Chemical weapons, so cruise missiles land in Syria 2 days later without any proof. These are the same people who gave us the fake story's that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction and that 9/11 was done by Arabs.
"Now the U.S. believe that they are investigators, they are attorneys, judges and they are the executioners," "I believe it's vital for us to remember what history teaches us and on this occasion (in 2003), the United States did affirm, they affirmed that they had all the proof necessary to show that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction but they were never found ... never were they found," the Bolivian ambassador said at the UN April 2017.
Ex-UK Ambassador to Syria Peter Ford states: "Assad wasn’t behind the chemical attack"
Virginia State Senator Richard Black is one of those rare U.S. politicians with a fully functioning brain in his head. He said the following:
“I give the probabilities of Syria launching the Syrian gas attack a zero probability, I think there's absolutely no chance that they [Syrian government] did it because there is nothing on earth to gain and in exchange he would incur the wrath of the whole world. So it didn't happen. I know that it didn't happen." "We're [United States] not even sure he [Assad] has chemical weapons," Black stressed. "The United States has relied on evidence that has come solely from terrorists... There are no independent observers on the ground. One of the primary sources of information has come from the White Helmets who, as you know, have been completely compromised as an element of al-Qaeda," There are elements of the Central Intelligence Agency whose sole purpose is to create propaganda to foster warfare against innocent countries,"
CIA officer Philip Giraldi reported hearing from his intelligence contacts in the field that they were shocked at how the new poison-gas story was being distorted by Trump and the mainstream U.S. news media.
Former CIA Counter terrorism officer Giraldi said: “I’m hearing from sources on the ground in the Middle East, people who are intimately familiar with the intelligence that is available who are saying that the essential narrative that we’re all hearing about the Syrian government or the Russians using chemical weapons on innocent civilians is a sham.”
Watch the video below, it shows how they stage a fake gas attack, probably Mossad or CIA.
Look at this fake photo of the White Helmets helping these children who supposedly were struck by a chemical Sarin attack. Sarin exposure works through skin contact. So you would not touch them with your bare hands if it really was Sarin because it is 20 times more deadly than cyanide. If this had been sarin they would have died. Sarin on the skin will kill you.
In an interview conducted on April 5, 2017, Damian Walker, a former army bomb disposal officer, made these observations:
“When I initially read that Sarin nerve agent had been used in an attack on Idlib, I was surprised that the chemical warfare agent had been identified so quickly. On watching the video of the incident, I quickly concluded that it was unlikely a Sarin attack. If it was the first responders would also have been killed, and the victims’ symptoms appeared to be the result of a “choking agent”, and not a military grade agent. At the very least, the totality of these red flags demands an independent investigation, which would likely take weeks, rather than hours. Failing this, the reasonable conclusion would be that the incident was a false flag event”.
The White Helmets are part of the terrorist\rebel organisation. The "White Helmets" are a geo-political tool for the UK , Israel & USA....and funded by them too!
Gordon Duff, VeteransToday.com Senior Editor says:
“Editor’s note: With the role of George Clooney’s “White Helmets” along with the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights in exploiting what we believe to be the Turkish Sarin gas attack on Syria yesterday, both VT and Press TV have been under continual cyber-attack. Ian’s story yesterday had it right from the beginning and information is flowing in to VT from sources in Turkey, Syria and from Russia as well.
With the role of the White Helmets in exploiting this story, we are ready to conclude the serious possibility that this was a planned terror attack and that some US based group, most likely CIA, had a role. We are increasingly suspicious of Clooney as his wife has ties, according to our sources, with Israeli intelligence. Amal Clooney has represented Yulia Tymoshenko, Julian Assange and Mohamed Fahmy, Qatar’s press puppet with Al Jazeera in Egypt. Clooney is clearly being groomed”.
For quite obvious reasons, there is no doubt that the chemical weapons explosion in Khan Shaykhun, Syria on April 4th was a plot by the Western powers to quickly change the emerging peace narrative. They are also looking to create a pretext to war with Russia as the following exposé explains.
What’s really behind all the fake anti-Russia hysteria?
Much has been going in the right direction for President Bashar al-Assad toward establishing a durable peace. And the quickest way to short-circuit that peace process was to, once again, falsely smear Assad with a heinous chemical attack on his own people. This is exactly what they did on Monday via yet another false flag.
This chemical attack was conducted to achieve several goals by the Zio-Anglo-American Axis (ZAAA). The ZAAA leadership is absolutely determined not to give up their doomed Greater Israel project. Syria remains the central piece of that Mideast puzzle, and it must be conquered if Greater Israel is to be established throughout the Northern Levant. However, Putin’s Russia will not permit such a misguided venture to proceed unimpeded.
It ought to be abundantly clear by now that neither Syria nor Russia would ever use chemical weapons in any theater of war. As a matter of historical fact, Russia brokered the deal whereby the Assad government gave up their chemical weapons and transported them out of the country to be destroyed on board a specially equipped U.S. ship in the Mediterranean. Hence, Syria possessed no such weapons to use for that chemical explosion.
Furthermore, Russia is that last nation that would jeopardize the peace talks; Putin has every reason to conclude all military activity in the Middle East post haste. Given the recent terror attack in Saint Petersburg, he knows that the West intends to preoccupy him with defending the Motherland, and especially the extensive borders of Russia. The now regular NATO troop movements to some of the former Warsaw Pact nations is further proof of this provocation by the North Atlantic Terrorist Organization (NATO). On the other hand, the NWO globalist cabal, which effectively directs NATO and oversees ZAAA, had much to gain from this false flag chemical attack.
“There is speculation that the attack was retribution for Russia’s air raids on Islamist militants in Syria.”
For the unaware, there is practically nothing that sabotages the Syrian (and Iraqi) peace process which does not have NATO’s signature written all over it. Neither Syria’s Assad nor Putin’s Russia has any reason whatsoever to commit atrocities anywhere in the highly volatile region. Any blatant war crime would only serve the interests of the BIG OIL companies which are really behind the ongoing genocide and forced migrations. The whole world knows this, which is why many have read the UK and US mainstream media (MSM) chemical attack headlines with utter disbelief.
First, that the Western mainstream media always sings in perfect unison the very same cacophonous song about Assad poisoning his own people earlier in this war. No such thing has ever happened; just like it did not happen in Shaykhun on April 4th. But what is very suspicious is that the London press routinely lodges these patently false accusations without a shred of truth. More significantly, there has never been sufficient time to even conduct a preliminary investigation that could be trusted and yet the MSM aggressively promotes their unsubstantiated story. This recurring dynamic has seen the worldwide MSM become a global echo-chamber for a totally made-up story designed to portray Assad as a tyrant and a butcher, which he clearly is not
There is only one accurate answer to this question. That answer can be quickly arrived at by considering that the Iraq War of 2003 was started on the lie of weapons of mass destruction. Everyone knows that the Neocon globalists planted that story everywhere they could until their presidential pawn — George W. Bush — pushed the war button. And look at Iraq today.
What the world is witnessing is the outworking of the Greater Israel project. The goal is to transform the entire Mideast into a single vassal state of the Zionist-Anglo-American Axis.
Syrian Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister Faisal Mekdad confirmed that the Syrian government provided the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and the United Nations Security Council with necessary documentation and reports which prove that the chemicals, used in yesterday's gas attack on Khan Sheikhoun in Idleb province, were in fact stored and possessed by the terrorist groups, operating in the area.
Mekdad said that the media reports, surrounding the events, were used as a tool of distortion and falsification of facts, noting that Syria has fulfilled all obligations to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, with the latter already verifying this.
He also denied that Syrian Army is in possession of chemical weapons, by saying: "The army has never used such weapons, even in the most intense and critical battles with the terrorist groups", while also reminding Staffan de Mistura, UN's Special Envoy to Syria, to act in accordance with his role and neutrally approach the situation.
Mekdad also stressed that Syria strongly condemns the attacks on Khan Sheikhoun, yesterday carried out by armed terrorist groups and their supporters, operating in the area and called on the international community to hold the parties, responsible for the crime, accountable. He also expressed concerns that Wednesday's conference on the Syrian issue in Brussels could be used as a tool to spread blatant lies and accusations against Syria.
The Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister further stated that the area where the incident occurred is under complete control of the terrorist groups and that the attacks are obviously their work and that of their aides and supporters, located in Britain, France, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, pointing out that the so-called "Syrian opposition" which itself refused to play its part in restoring peace and stability to Syria, is now trying to put pressure on the Syrian government by making such provocations.
Yesterday, reports came about a chemical weapons attack in the Syrian village of Khan Sheikhoun, located in Syria's Idleb province. Almost 60 people, many of them children, were said to have been killed by the poisonous substances that were dropped during air raids on the village. Despite no evidence and the fact that no raids were conducted on Khan Sheikhoun, the Islamist and corporate press accused the Syrian and Russian side to be behind the incident. The two have since denied and debunked the accusations.
Fourth, there is the question as to why the U.S would launch a military strike in the knowledge that it would risk further sarin leaks into the atmosphere. As the writer and musician, Gilad Atzmon, argues:
“It doesn’t take a military analyst to grasp that the American attack on a remote Syrian airfield contradicts every possible military rationale. If America really believed that Assad possessed a WMD stockpile and kept it in al-Shayrat airbase, launching a missile attack that could lead to a release of lethal agents into the air would be the last thing it would do. If America was determined to ‘neutralise’ Assad’s alleged ‘WMD ability’ it would deploy special forces or diplomacy. No one defuses WMD with explosives, bombs or cruise missiles. It is simply unheard of.”
“The first concern that comes to mind is why do you need a saxophonist to deliver the truth every military expert understands very well? Can’t the New York Times or the Guardian reach the same obvious conclusion? It’s obvious enough that if Assad didn’t use WMD when he was losing the war, it would make no sense for him to use it now when a victory is within reach.”
It must be remembered that the SAA (Syrian Arab Army) is fighting a war but not against anti-government rebels or moderates as depicted in the mainstream media. Rather it’s a dirty war against a merciless, depraved and bloodthirsty proxy army funded, armed and supported by the Empire of Evil (US, UK, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, NATO, Israel). The real aim of the Empire of Evil is to topple Iran and install puppet leaders in Syria and Iran (just like they did in Iraq and Libya), puppet leaders in which they control. But first they have to destroy Iran’s main ally in the Middle East which is Syria. Now they have to do this with a proxy war which means they can’t attack Syria themselves for no reason so they fund, train and arm mercenaries, rebels to attack Syria for them. Most of these rebels are the ones who helped to remove Gaddafi in Libya they then moved on to Syria to continue their slaughter and they became Isis\Isil. Isis then steal’s Iraqi and Syrian oil and then Turkey illegally buy’s this oil and transports it across the border to Turkey. This is a country that wants to join the European Union. The EU now has to pay Turkey a few billion euros so that it will stop sending migrants through Turkey and into Europe. Another part of this payment is Turkish citizens (80 million) will be allowed to visit Europe visa free from July 2016 and stay for 90 days.
In an interview with the French TV station LCP, former French minister for Foreign Affairs Roland Dumas said:
‘’I’m going to tell you something. I was in England two years before the violence in Syria on other business. I met with top British officials, who confessed to me that they were preparing something in Syria. This was in Britain not in America. Britain was organizing an invasion of rebels into Syria. They even asked me, although I was no longer minister for foreign affairs, if I would like to participate. Naturally, I refused, I said I’m French, that doesn’t interest me.’’ ‘’This operation goes way back. It was prepared, preconceived and planned… in the region it is important to know that this Syrian regime has a very anti-Israeli stance. Consequently, everything that moves in the region- and I have this from the former Israeli prime minister who told me ‘we’ll try to get on with our neighbours but those who don’t agree with us will be destroyed”.
Yes but Israel or the Jewish Zionists will not destroy the countries themselves, they will get countries that they control the USA, Britain and France to do it for them.
The USA is behind ISIS. Listen to the video below
Aleppo, Liberated. December 2016
Aleppo has been liberated after almost four years of a barbarous and cruel occupation by the so-called Syrian opposition. The people of Aleppo are celebrating the fact, no longer will they be subjected to the most brutal, murderous regime imaginable. What really made Aleppo such a hellhole was not the privations of being a city under siege, nor was it the cruelty and barbarism of the occupying forces – it was the fact that no-one outside Syria was lifting a single finger to help them, they received no aid, no foreign volunteers came to provide medical help, no foreign government did a single thing to alleviate their suffering.
However, the MSM told a very different tale, night after night, the TV news was full of tales of brave aid workers, courageous doctors and all manner of volunteers who were trying to save the people of Aleppo. They kept telling us that aid convoys were flowing into the city to keep the people from starvation and that ambulances were ferrying the wounded to hospitals in Turkey. All of it was lies, an inversion of reality; the aid convoys were, in reality, supplying the occupying forces with arms and munitions as well as food and other essentials. The ambulances were also bringing in arms and supplies, the wounded they carried out to be treated in Turkish hospitals were not innocent civilians caught in the crossfire, they were ‘rebel’ fighters injured while fighting against the legitimate Syrian armed forces and their allies
The suffering of the people of Aleppo has been at the hands of their occupiers, despite the strenuous efforts of the Western media to blame the Assad government and their Russian allies.
As towns in Aleppo province have been liberated, the people have been describing the horror they have been living while their towns were held by “opposition”. Women were forced to veil themselves or be lashed and publicly humiliated. Children were murdered, accused of being “spies”. The civilian population were deprived of medical aid, medicine, water and electricity. Many areas of Aleppo were held in captivity by US-backed “opposition” groups and these groups behaved exactly like ISIS in their cruelty and enforcement of Islamic Law.
People were often accused of crimes they did not commit and then punished via Islamic Law and Quranic doctrine; hands were chopped off, people were immersed in boiling oil, others were set on fire, women were stoned to death, the list of mediaeval tortures and horrific public executions is very long and sickening indeed.
In stark contrast to this reality, the Western MSM kept feeding us a steady diet of lies about civilians being killed by the ‘Assad regime’ and murderous airstrikes by the Russians that struck civilian targets such as schools and hospitals. In the last few days, this propaganda has stepped up a notch so that now we are being told that the ‘Assad regime’ is committing genocide in Aleppo, rounding up and massacring civilians with utmost cruelty. They keep citing highly dubious sources for these reports without ever troubling themselves to verify any of them with actual, legitimate journalists and human rights/aid groups on the ground in Aleppo.
The White Helmets are terrorists and are a propaganda tool for the West. Watch the videos below.
The propaganda from the rebel-held eastern Aleppo is produced by a number of organizations and individuals who are sponsored by the West, with the White Helmets being the largest among them, Beeley told RT. But the White Helmets are not the heroes that the mainstream media is trying to make of them.
“This organization is a fraudulent shadow-state construct created by NATO to simply propagate the propaganda that will demonize Assad’s government and also demonize Russian legal intervention in Syria,” said the journalist, who recently returned from Syria.
“From all the information that we’ve received they are acting as terrorist support group,” she added, “in the sense of bringing equipment, arms, even funding, into Syria.”
The MI6/CIA organization known as the White Helmets, more fakes whose organization has overseen slaughter for almost 3 years, delivering ammunition and poison gas while begging for cash and putting out doctored videos and staged photographs. This group and all associated with it need to be declared terrorists and war criminals.
Created out of militants who invaded Aleppo, the Western-funded White Helmets is a terrorist support group fraudulently masquerading as a humanitarian organization to undermine Syrian government, says independent researcher and journalist Vanessa Beeley.
Beeley emphasized that the White Helmets were “formed by a British [consultant] James Le Mesurier, in 2013. They are trained by him. He has a background in private security work, including connection back to Blackwater, which is one of the best known private security firms that was used by the CIA… as an outreach assassination organization.”
“They’re not trained in Syria,” she added. “They’re trained in Gaziantep in Turkey; and then they’re implanted into areas like east Aleppo, areas that are under heavy conflict.”
White Helmets cannot be in fact called a non-governmental organization as “they are multimillion funded by various NATO states that have declared a vested interest in a regime change in Syria.”
“We see them being received by top government officials in France, like Manuel Valls, the prime minister,” she said, referring to the meeting between Hollande, Valls and the representatives of the White Helmets.
“White Helmets cannot declare themselves neutral and impartial when they are wined and dined by a nation that has clear publicly declared interests in regime change in Syria,” Beeley added.
She also stressed that repeated calls for a no-fly zone over Syria issued by the White Helmets “on various occasions” also demonstrate that they are echoing the western agenda. Meanwhile, Al Mawwas in fact reiterated this call in an interview with RT.
In the meantime, Vanessa Beeley drew attention to the fact that the White Helmets “are embedded exclusively in the areas controlled by Al Nusra and Islamic State” (IS, former ISIS/ISIL).
She also said that the group has been involved in “recycling the photos of children” that suffered from the Syrian conflict. “That is something that they have been doing throughout their existence as regards their propaganda campaigns,” Beeley told RT.
Some high-ranking western politicians, including British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, have openly expressed their support for the group. “I’m proud to say we’re giving them I think £32 million [US$39.78 million] funding as part of a wider £65 million package for non-humanitarian aid,” Johnson had said.
In the meantime, videos spread online have hinted that the group might have connections to some terrorist organizations such as Al Nusra. One video demonstrated what seemed to be White Helmets taking part in an execution of a civilian.
The group’s leader, Raed Al-Saleh, was denied entry into the US in April 2016 but was allowed back in September. US State Department spokesman Mark Toner struggled to explain Al-Saleh’s travel ban and eventually admitted that he is “suspected of having ties … with the extremist groups.”
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights is quoted as though it were the most authoritative source of information to be found in Syria. Such “luminaries” as the Huffington Post, VICE, Reuters, CNN , Fox and nearly all of the mainstream media have been caught citing this website verbatim, without so much as questioning the reliability of this singular source.
Only RT, being a Russian outlet and thus being the butt of a lot of the site’s accusations, seemed at least concerned enough about the authenticity of this source to conduct an investigation into discovering how this authority on all things Syrian had came to existence, and its process for deriving its very-“authentic” information.
Abdel Rahman is the “director” of the SOHR, though it is quite uncertain if he actually has anyone to “direct” as nobody else is known to work for/with him. He works from his two-bedroom Coventry home in the UK; this is why you keep seeing the Mainstream media call him a “London-based monitoring group“. It’s quite funny, really, calling this one man a “London-based monitoring group” in the same vein as The Red Cross.
Civilian Causalities in Syria
Syrian Centre for Policy Research says 470,000 deaths is twice UN’s figure with ‘human development ruined’ after 45% of population is displaced. Syria’s national wealth, infrastructure and institutions have been “almost obliterated” by the “catastrophic impact” of nearly five years of conflict, a new report has found. Fatalities caused by war, directly and indirectly, amount to 470,000, according to the Syrian Centre for Policy Research (SCPR) – a far higher total than the figure of 250,000 used by the United Nations until it stopped collecting statistics 18 months ago. At least 10% of those killed have been children so that is at least 50,000 children have died in this conflict.
In all, 11.5% of the country’s population have been killed or injured since the crisis erupted in March 2011, the report estimates. The number of wounded is put at 1.9 million. Life expectancy has dropped from 70 in 2010 to 55.4 in 2015. About 13.8 million Syrians have lost their source of livelihood. The shrinking of the population by 21% helps explain the waves of refugees reaching Turkey and Europe. Nearly 4 million Syrians are now living as refugees in neighbouring Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq, placing extraordinary pressure on already cash-strapped host countries.
To stop the war the solution is simple. The countries US, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, NATO, and Israel should stop funding and arming the bloodthirsty rebels and Isis and then Assad does not have anyone to fight and the war stops.
America then falsely claimed it was bombing Isis but then Russia stepped in and showed them how to do it properly. Because Putin and Russia were helping Assad fight Isis two Russian aircraft were shot down, one a passenger jet and the other a fighter jet which was shot down by Turkey. Turkey is one of the countries funding and arming Isis. Then western governments then help to stage false flag terror attacks against its own people and then blame Isis for the attacks so that they can then keep on bombing Syria.
While the US sponsored Al Qaeda and ISIS rebels have largely been defeated, with the support of Russia, Iran and Hezbollah, the Obama administration is now intent upon replenishing so to speak its "moderate opposition" brigades inside Syria with a new influx of jihadist fighters.
Following the decimation of Daesh-al Nusrah positions throughout the country, thousands of Islamic militants have fled amidst the outflow of refugees.
The Western military alliance has responded to this defeat of "moderate" rebel positions by replenishing its proxy army, - ie. recruiting and training a new horde of mercenaries and jihadists with the support of Turkey, Israel and Saudi Arabia.
In this regard, the ongoing Battle for Aleppo is absolutely crucial. "Thousands of terrorists" were reported to have crossed the Turkey-Syria border in early May. No doubt, they will be deployed against government forces in Aleppo:
Syrian Prime Minister Wael Nader al-Halqi also warned that more than 5,000 fresh militants crossed the border into the Northwestern provinces of Aleppo and Idlib from Turkey, stressing that the ceasefire agreement was being violated by certain parties.
The ongoing border crossing of terrorists into Syria is facilitated by the Turkish authorities.
The Syrian government accused the West of "aiding in the escalation of terrorist activity and arming terrorists."
This inflow of thousands of Al Qaeda Mujahideen was carefully planned. It was preceded by the deployment of US special forces in Syria to oversea and supervise the newly recruited "moderate opposition rebels" aka Al Qaeda terrorists, most of whom have already undergone paramilitary training.
Of significance, these new foreign jihadist "freedom fighters" will de facto (not officially) be under US-NATO Command with US and allied forces deployed on the ground in permanent liaison with NATO and the US military.
Why is the US Silently Bombing Syria’s Electricity Network
“A military source told SANA that warplanes of the Washington alliance violated Syrian airspace and attacked civilian infrastructure in Mare’a, Tal Sha’er, and al-Bab in Aleppo countryside on Sunday.
The source added that the warplanes attacked the biggest electric power plant that feeds Aleppo city, which resulted in cutting off power from most neighborhoods in Aleppo city.
Just a week ago U.S. air attacks had attacked another power station and a big distribution transformer al-Radwaniye also east of Aleppo.”
Murder of reporter Serena Shim in Syria
It is undeniably documented that Turkey is the main rat run, supplying weapons, supplies, chemical weapon ingredients and manpower often via the pseudo aid convoys. Serena Shim reported that WHO trucks were running arms and equipment to “rebels” shortly before she was killed in a mysterious car accident, after receiving death threats.
Serena Shim (below) was a 29 year old mother of two children and a American journalist for Press TV. In October 2014, Shim was sent to Turkey on a mission to cover the ISIL conflict. During her investigations for her job Shim claimed that ISIL fighters were being transported in trucks bearing the symbol of NGO’s humanitarian aid of World Food Organizations and other NGO's en route from Syria to Turkey, adding she had footage to prove her claim. She also claimed Turkey was helping ISIL. Shim told Press TV that the Turkish National Intelligence Organization (MİT) had accused her of spying. Days later she was involved in a suspicious car accident after being threatened by Turkish intelligence.
Shim, said on air she's "a bit frightened" by what MİT "might use against me. She died on 19 October 2014 in a car crash on her way back to her hotel. She was returning to Suruç with her driver and camera operator Judy Irish in a rental car when the car collided with a cement mixer. Shim survived the crash, but died of a heart attack after being taken to an undisclosed location. Her co-worker Judy Irish was injured and taken to a different hospital to Serena Shim. The vehicle driver was subsequently arrested. Press TV disputed this, alleging that both driver and vehicle "have disappeared" and her death is "suspicious. Her tragic death came just two days after a video interview in which she claimed Turkish intelligence agents had threatened her after her report on the ISIL extremist jihadists being smuggled into Syria from Turkey.
Serena’s sister is also suspicious "I think it was planned and plotted. There's no pictures of Sassy in the car. There is not one scratch on my sister's body. They took them to two different hospitals. Why? Why were there Army men on the ground, why weren't there police?"
Serena Shim’s tragic death was almost certainly an unlawful assassination designed firstly to silence her from reporting further on Turkey's involvement in the rise of ISIL/Daesh, and secondly to act as a violent warning to other journalists to stay away from trying to expose the true nature of the war in Syria and the cynical manufacturing of the 'Islamic State' for geo-political purposes. The United States' lack of interest in pursuing the matter of her death also suggests the US is complicit in that warning too.
No independent investigation has been conducted by the United States over her death, despite her US citizenship.
Shim was one of the few who were risking life and limb in dangerous territory to report on what was really going on. And she paid with her life.
In October 2014 Serena Shim herself joined the roll-call of brave journalists over the years who've risked - and ultimately sacrificed - their lives for the sake of uncovering the truth. Her bravery is all the more meaningful in the context of how most mainstream, corporate-owned journalism has been either reluctant or unwilling to dig deeper beyond the superficial surface of the 'ISIS' story and report more honestly about the origins of the crisis.
Another person has also been murdered trying to report the truth. Former BBC journalist, Jacky Sutton (aged 50) is reported to have been found dead in a toilet in Istanbul's main airport. The British journalist who had been working as Iraq director for the Institute of War and Peace Reporting (IWPR). Turkish sources have allegedly suggested that she has killed herself after missing a flight connection, (sorry no sensible person would believe that) which colleagues of Ms Sutton are dismissing. In her role as acting Iraq head of the (London-based) IWPR, Jackie Sutton's role has been to support local journalism in countries affected by war and crisis. The organisation's previous Iraq director, Ammar Al Shahbander, was killed in a car-bomb in Baghdad on 2nd May 2014. It is claimed the British woman's body has been found hanging from boot laces. It is very suspicious that Jacky Sutton’s death in Turkey comes on the precise one-year anniversary of the equally suspicious death of Serena Shim, who was killed in a car 'accident' on the Turkey-Syria border in 2014.
There is, unequivocally, a need to report upon all mortalities as a result of this devastating US NATO neocolonialist war against Syria. However the glaring bias towards the demonization of the legitimate national fighting force, battling a vicious, brutal and mercenary enemy is an insult to the intelligence & courage of the Syrian people and a deliberate obscurantism of truth and the extent of the duplicity and hypocrisy of our own governments.
