Massacre At Aqrab

Video Exposes Anti Syrian Government Propaganda


The Syrian crisis has been plagued by disinformation, especially when it comes to the Mainstream Media (MSM) and its lies about the Syrian conflict to suit their governments' agendas.

Posted December 17, 2012


In most cases, irresponsible reporting from what were once considered as "prestigious" news organizations has relied heavily on "Syrian activists", who happen to be almost entirely pro-FSA and anti-Syrian government. Massacres conducted by the Islamist "Free Syrian Army" (FSA) against unarmed Syrian civilians were casually attributed by those activists as crimes of the "Assad regime" against a defenseless population in order to delegitimize the Syrian government. The FSA would then display dead children that they just massacred as "victims of Assad's Shabbiha", a militia loyal to the Syrian government.

A recent episode took place in Aqrab (Hama countryside), where over 200 civilians were reportedly massacred by the Shabbiha. Most news organizations went with that narrative. However, a closer investigation that entails talking to the parents and relatives of these victims shows a completely different story. This video has two parts.

Part 1 (starts at 0:30) shows British Channel 4 report on the story directly from Aqrab.
Part 2 (starts at 6:25) shows Lebanese al-Mayadeen TV report on the story.

Yet, it's the Syrian government that is continuously portrayed as the one conducting these massacres, whereas it has been shown, in each case, that it's no entity other than the FSA that is conducting them, be it in al-Houla, Darayya, Karm al-Zeitoun, or any other similar massacre.
