Russian airstrikes have killed 1800 children

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

On the third anniversary of Russia’s military intervention in Syria, an independent monitoring group, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said Russian air strikes and artillery shells have killed 18,000 people, including nearly 8,000 civilians, .

The Syrian Network for Human Rights, another monitoring group, alleged 6,239 civilians have been killed, including 1,804 children at the hands of Russian forces, according to a 40-page report it issued on Monday.

But the Kremlin says it killed significantly more in its quest to bolster the rule of Bashar al-Assad in Syria. The head of its parliamentary defence committee announced on Sunday that it had killed 85,000 people, calling them all “terrorists”. Russia also claims it has not killed a single civilian in Syria over the last three years.

Quote

Writing in the Mail on Sunday, journalist Peter Hitchens commented last month on the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR):

'Talking of war, and Syria, many of you may have noticed frequent references in the media to a body called the "Syrian Observatory for Human Rights", often quoted as if it is an impartial source of information about that complicated conflict, in which the British government clearly takes sides. The "Observatory" says on its website that it is "not associated or linked to any political body."

'To which I reply: Is Boris Johnson's Foreign Office not a political body? Because the FO just confirmed to me that "the UK funded a project worth £194,769.60 to provide the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights with communications equipment and cameras." That's quite a lot, isn't it? I love the precision of that 60p. Your taxes, impartially, at work.'

This figure was confirmed in communication with the Foreign Office by independent political journalist Ian Sinclair. (Email to Media Lens, May 17, 2018)

Next well be painting the White Helmets as 'an independent civil defense volunteer organisation' helping the local population in the 'Syrian Civil War'. :lol:

This ofcourse besides the rather stark hypocrisy in lamenting these deaths while our own governments have been actively funding and arming the very groups these Russian airstrikes are a response to, aiding the besieged Syrian government by way of explicit, formal request from the Assad government after being flooded with foreign mercenaries murdering & pillaging.

..As well as the humongous deathcount amongst ME civilians thusfar, including women, children and elderly, seeded by our brilliant interventionist ME foreign policy, 'saving the people from their evil dictators'.
