The Syrian Army Is Not Attacking Aleppo but Defending It – Alexander Mercouris
Russia Insider Daily Headlines / Alexander Mercouris
The Syrian conflict has seen many media distortions but there is one especially which I must take vigorous issue with.
The news media in the West portrays the recent fighting around Aleppo as a Syrian army attack on Aleppo.
Sometimes there is an admission that the government controls part of Aleppo. However overall the impression given is that Aleppo is a rebel city and that the Syrian government’s army is attacking it.
