Alfred (a Syrian) sent me this: "If you look at the Syrian government website SANA, and ANY other pro government media you see daily pictures of dead and wounded civilians in Western Aleppo and throughout government control areas from "rebel" shelling since day ONE. And, Anne Barnard claims that "President Bashar al-Assad’s main pitch to his people is that they are safe in the territory he controls." "This is what the government wanted international journalists to see when it invited a group into the country this week after years of keeping most out. But when I stepped off the bus, I found a war zone." ...No Anne Barnard! This is the lie you have been pushing, not the Syrian government!
