US-Supported Terrorists Deny Medical Care to Eastern Aleppo Residents
by Stephen Lendman
US-supported terrorists control eastern Aleppo public and private hospitals still functioning – using them for military purposes, denying vital treatment for residents in need.
Syrian and Hezbollah forces began a large-scale offensive to liberate Aleppo entirely from the scourge of US-backed terrorism.
On October 18, Russian and Syrian aerial operations were halted within a 10 km area in terrorist-controlled eastern parts of the city – conducting them in surrounding areas alone so far, aimed at cutting supply lines and aiding the advance of government-led forces.
At the same time, Russian and Syrian aerial operations are ongoing in Idlib and Homs provinces, along with other areas infested with US-backed terrorists.
In times of war, media scoundrels are virtual Pentagon and administration press agents, notably The New York Times, America’s leading propaganda disseminator.
It’s latest misinformation claims “intensifying bombardment…forced (eastern Aleppo hospitals) to stop providing care,” citing a World Health Organization report lacking credibility.
For months, area hospitals controlled by US-supported terrorists virtually halted treatment for injured and ill residents, using the facilities entirely for themselves.
NYT: “(T)he Syrian government has resolved to press forward regardless of the humanitarian cost, and to gamble that Western countries, particularly the United States, will not stop them.”
“President Obama has never been keen on military action in Syria, and the incoming American president, Donald J. Trump, is more sympathetic to Russia, which has allied with the Syrian government.”
Fact: Syrian and allied forces launched a large-scale offensive to liberate eastern Aleppo from US-backed terrorists controlling it – an operation deserving universal support.
Fact: Syria is Obama’s war, naked aggression against a sovereign independent nation threatening no one, using ISIS, al-Nusra and other terrorist groups as imperial foot soldiers. So-called “moderate rebels” are misnamed. None exist. All anti-government forces are foreign-supported cutthroat killers.
Fact: Trump’s geopolitical agenda remains unknown until he’s inaugurated and begins governing. Whether he’ll fulfill pledges made remains to be seen.
Terrorists continue massacring defenseless civilians in eastern and western parts of the city, including women and children. The Times and other media scoundrels ignore their war crimes – blaming Syria and Russia irresponsibly.
Throughout years of endless war and fruitless Russian diplomatic efforts for resolution, media scoundrels continue misreporting what’s ongoing.
In all US war theaters, they’re imperial agents and facilitators, abdicating their responsibility as journalists – serving as advocates for Washington’s geopolitical agenda.
