Civilians in East Aleppo have been complaining and protesting the abuses of the Syrian rebels and also the hoarding of UN aid deliveries, which are stolen by the rebels. The civilians are also prohibited from leaving East Aleppo. Today, residents of East Aleppo were planning to launch protests against the rebels although the rebels made it clear that they won't allow protests to take place. Fearing embarrassment for the rebels, former US Ambassador in Syria tweeted that protests should be allowed to take place. This entire story is not in US newspaper. Western correspondents in Beirut would never cover what is embarrassing to the image of their beloved rebels. I don't know what happened today.
