DAMASCUS, SYRIA (8:35 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels allegedly massacred several civilians in east Aleppo on Thursday after a large number of residents took to the streets to protest the confiscation of aid by the Syrian opposition, the Russian Defense Ministry reported this morning.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, more than 40 civilians were killed or wounded by the jihadist aggression on Thursday.

“The militants dispersed the demonstration, shooting at the protesting from a heavy machine gun and then mined all the approaches to the checkpoint and placed snipers on the roofs of nearby houses,” General Igor Konashenkov of the Russian Defense Ministry said describing one of the incidents, involving about 300 civilians.

“Seventeen people died at the site, including two teenagers of 13 and 15 years of age, over 40 people were wounded,” Konashenkov said.

He added that the militants detained about 10 men whom they deemed responsible for organizing the demonstrations and then killed all of them.

“The terrorists detained and drove away in an unknown direction with about 10 men, who they thought were the ‘organizers’ of the turmoil. That same evening all of them were shot,” Konashenkov said.

Well, don’t these ‘moderate rebels’ say they fight for the freedom of Syrian people? Didn’t they used to say that it was Assad slaughtering his people?
(notice the irony of this writ…)

@Aute, The ‘proof’ will be very apparent in the coming weeks when the civilians in the East are freed from their torment. The US/NATO Foreign Legions of child killers will be defeated by the SAA and the world will be able to learn of ‘Life Under the Yoke of US inspired TERRORISM.
