Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan met with Bana Alabed – the so-called “7 year old Twitter blogger from Aleppo” which was spreading a pro-militant propaganda aboout the situation in the Syrian city.
According to BBC, Erdogan sent a special representative to Syria to take Bana and her family after they left eastern Aleppo via a humanitarian corridor together with militant groups.
Then, Bana and her little brother arrived in the presidential complex in Ankara and were pictured sitting on Mr Erdogan’s knee.
Bana’s twitter acc also released a picture of herself and Erdogan:
Pro-militant media outlets and the mainstream media have used the twitter account allgedly belonging to “Bana” to blame the anti-terrorist operation run by the Syrian government.
Then, when many experts and activists pointed that the real Bana cannot speak and write English well, pro-militant propagada outlets were pushed to say that the account was run by Bana’s mother, Fatemah.
A face of one of the main militant propaganda mouthpieces in Aleppo accidentally left Aleppo with militants and met with Erdogan a day after the murder of Russia’s ambassador to Turkey.
Is there at least a piece of the “opposition” in northern Syria not linked with Turkish special services? The question remains open.
