With escalation of regime attacks on the neighborhoods of Aleppo city that are held by opposition forces with the pretext of wiping out terrorism and punishing the citizens of that area in the city out of regime control, the dangerous increases when the war on field becomes more fierce; the Syrian Network of Human Rights noticed that regime has carried out preceded brutal attacks where in the last fortnight the organization has recorded nearly more than 81 barrel bombs dropped by regime helicopters and up to 92 missiles in addition to GGM (Ground To Ground Missiles) which reach to 20 missiels.
A question arises in the mind all the time, have those missiles hit the targets of facilities and headquarters of armed “Terrorists”? or new pains and horrifying massacres have befallen civilians claiming more innocent souls of our people in Aleppo?
For sure the videos and photos are the clearest proves of the inability and failure of that forces to target terrorism, but committing massacres against women and children hitting the helpless and causing only a new toll to be added to the records of deaths. That random bombardment have murdered 24 children and 12 women since the first of May where it has been 15 days and fire is still the biggest fears till this moment.. besides dozens wounded and injured due to that blind offensive shelling from 5000 meters high ; at the time air of course plays a part bombing the innocent who war tough circumstances force them to stay in possibly-targeted areas.
Hospitals do not have better chances although they are of no relations to fighters, however, targeting these service facilitates increases the suffering and miseries in a barbaric campaign to tighten the siege the Syrian people in Aleppo in every possible way. In a visit to one of the targeted hospitals and which offers treatment services for injured, we met “Abo-Hilal” who was aged 65 years from Aleppo city. He was suffering from a severe injury that befell his skinny body, he talked to us with unstable breaths:” May Allah avenge who kills his own people and those ones who aid and support him in murdering and sieging us.. as if there were not any consequences to their criminal actions and deeds, the greatness and the history of our city have brought us these greedy and malevolent whose only concern is a land without its people.. Die or Yield”.
Missiles did not distinguish between a civilian or a fighter; between local citizens or foreign journalists because there are continual fighting and open war on the field. The Russian “First Channel” reported “Middle East” that a hotel in Aleppo city in which foreign reporters are staying including the team of this channel and staff of international organizations was intensively targeted.
It is an open war of blind fire in which there is no distinguish between nationalities and citizens. Its missiles and pains no one is safe from them. This suffering of foreign reporters and journalists is a clear prove of the people’s miseries in wounded Syria.
