The initial reporting by the Mainstream Media (MSM) relied solely on the British-based ‘Syrian Observatory for Human Rights’, an entity with an agenda and whose only purpose is not to report about crimes in Syria but rather to delegitimize the Syrian government by attributing massacres to the its forces.
After similar massacres in Houla, Daraya, Karm al-Zeitoun, Aqrab, and others, Arab and Western MSM news outlets have almost always initially reported that it was government forces who committed those crimes. When eyewitnesses and/or participants later give their testimonies, these reports turn out to be false. Every single time, the so-called ‘Syrian rebels’ are the ones really directly responsible for these massacres.
This report from ITN and aired on CNN (unusual airing by a NATO channel) shows that people from the town refute those claims and say it was an al-Qaeda linked group, most likely Jabhat al-Nusra (Nusra Front),that committed the massacre against defenseless civilians.
