Yesterday, over 10,000 civilians left the rebel-held parts of Aleppo city in order to escape the volatile battle-zone. Unfortunately, dozens of people were caught in crossfire while others were blantantly shot by insurgents who were seemingly unsatsified with the eastern Aleppo residents’ untimely departure.

According to Damascus and Moscow, Islamist rebels in the provincial capital of Aleppo have used civilians as human shields for months as to blend in with the local population and reduce their own casualties.


The footage was originally released by the Syrian Government’s media department.

    • And at the same time, Röpcke is saying there are extra-judicial executions. Thus, he pointed a video where he’s speaking on TV on his newspaper facebook and 95% of the comments (in German) are flaming the video! Nobody’s fooled by propaganda! What is very usual in most of European countries, when you’re in high school, is that you are teached to decipher news, recoup from several sources and recognise propaganda!
