Free Syrian Army Targets Innocent Civilians For Supporting The Government

category international | anti-war / imperialism | other press author Thursday November 08, 2012 14:30author by Elric Report this post to the editors

Kourosh Ziabari interviews Muhammad Hussam, a 24-year-old university student living in Aleppo ,( he preferred not to disclose his full name because of the death threats he and his family received from the terrorists,) he explains how the Free Syrian Army mercilessly kills supporters of President Assad and even has set up a website in which it publishes the photos and personal information of its potential targets.

Q: Dear Muhammad Hussam; please tell us more about the situation in your neighborhood, Aleppo . Have you personally witnessed the operations of the terrorists and foreign-backed armed groups in Aleppo ? How has been the response of the Syrian government to them?

A: The situation in my neighborhood is better now after the Syrian Arab Army had set up a few checkpoints in the area and cleaned some nearby neighborhoods from the terrorists. Unfortunately I've witnessed the operations of the so-called Free Syrian Army and it was like a nightmare. A few weeks ago they entered my neighborhood and a few adjacent neighborhoods; they forced people out of their homes by randomly shooting at windows and balconies, sometimes even firing RPGs at residential buildings and civilian cars, of course they did all that while screaming “Allahu Akbar” and the majority of the people in those neighborhoods are Christians and Armenians. This all happened in the early morning, a few Syrian security men arrived and stopped them from advancing for a few hours, until some Syrian Arab Army units arrived and started cleaning up the area. It took less than 24 hours for those neighborhoods to be clean of all terrorists. People started to get back to their homes in the next 48 hours, unfortunately many of the houses were damaged, and the terrorists even robbed them.

Q: The opponents of President Bashar Al-Assad say that with the upheaval of the Arab nations in the Middle East, the people of Syria also began to rise up against their government and demand a regime change in Syria and the ouster of President Assad. They cite demonstrations that took place in different cities of Syria and say that thousands of people took to the streets to protest against the government. Do you agree?

A: Firstly, everyday there are more evidence that this so-called Arab Spring was nothing but a staged act by the Zionist and Imperialist forces to install several puppet regimes, which is more evident now than before, I mean the post-“revolution” regimes in Tunisia, Libya, Egypt and Yemen are nothing but puppets for USA and NATO, and I think the latest letter from the Muslim Brotherhood president of Egypt Mohammad Morsi to the Israeli president says it all. I'm not saying that Hosni Mubarak was any better, but it is clear now that this is just a big plan to install extremist Islamists regimes in the Middle East that promote Jihadist ideologies to actually justify a US attack on any of those countries, also to justify Israel's call for a Jewish state clear of any Arabs whether Christians or Muslims.

Secondly, I do admit that several demonstrations took place early in 2011 limited to a few places in Syria and in very small numbers with no more than 200-300 people. However, the mass media exaggerated, lied and manipulated facts in Syria all to serve the Imperialists goals in establishing a foreign intervention under any name; whether a humanitarian intervention, a UN peacekeeping force, or an international “Jihad”. ...
