Somebody needs to inform this writer in the New York Times about Aleppo

"Some two million people (including thousands of displaced Syrians) live in relative safety in the west, while over 250,000 live in the east, which has been subjected to years of indiscriminate aerial bombardment by the government’s barrel bombs and, since last year, Russian airstrikes."  Somebody needs to inform her that her rebels have bombarded indiscriminately (with Cannons of Hell among other) the neighborhoods in the West, and sent car bombs there as well.  Somebody needs to tell her that the rebels attempted to deny water and electricity from the Western sector.  Why can't we have writers who condemn killing by both sides in the ugly Syrian war?
