AFP news agecy, the third largest news agency in the world, released a fresh video entitled “At least 1,200 rebels, civilians flee bastion of Aleppo“. Its description says:
At least 1,700 people including Syrian rebels and their families are evacuated to the country’s northwest from one of the last opposition bastions near Damascus, a monitor and aid workers say.
What? There are over 300 km between Damascus and Aleppo:
Do guys in AFP know at least something about Syria? Or they just don’t care where Aleppo, Westren Ghouta, Eastern Ghouta and Damascus are located. Anyway their only goal is to show “moderate opposition” members oppressed by the “bloody Assad regime”.
You can find the original AFP video below:
UPD 11:00 CET: AFP deleted the video most likely after our post. SF Team is always glad to help our “colleagues” to learn some geography.
Indeed, the video depicts the evacuation of memberts of Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) and Ahrar al-Sham and their families from the Western Ghouta region near the Syrian capital, Damascus. But it’s also too hard for AFP to clarify who are these “opposition members” that flee the area.
