The UN’s Commission of Inquiry for Syria (COI) says it has received reports that militants in Syria’s Aleppo are preventing civilians from leaving the city and are using them as human shields, PressTV reported.

The COI released a statement on Wednesday, saying it had received “allegations of opposition groups… preventing civilians from leaving as well as opposition fighters embedding themselves within the civilian population, thus heightening the risk to civilians of being killed or injured.”

The statement then went onto highlight that it was Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, formerly known as al-Nusra Front, and Ahrar al-Sham who are deemed moderate rebels by the West, as being the ones not allowing civilians to leave the city.

I have sensed they the US narrative about Syria is shifting slowly to acknowledge the now undeniable facts on the ground in Aleppo that the US fabled ‘moderates’ are in fact merciless terrorists killers of innocents

Even the BBC ( British Bullshit Corporation) News yesterday ended their report on Syria by saying if the rebels are driven out of Syria they will likely resort to clandestine hit and run bombing of towns and villages in Syria.

I might be old fashioned but I have always considered that such attacks are , um, TERRORISM.

I hope, as I am sure you will, that the revolting cult will be finally fully exposed and the punishment of the people exacted as many of the judiciary are involved and tainted.
