Huge Numbers of Dead and Wounded as Terrorists Rain Missiles down on Aleppo

by Silvia Cattori, translated by Vanessa Beeley for 21st Century Wire

The missiles raining down upon Aleppo since dawn on the 3rd May 2016 are being launched by the terrorist groups our media like to call “revolutionaries”.

“Today, the deluge of bombs striking Aleppo have targeted the Obstetric hospital. Huge numbers of dead and wounded.” ~ Dr Nabil Antaki, 3pm

“A massive explosion.  The battles have not stopped. More than 100 mortars since this morning.  The Aleppo students should have sat end of year exams today.  There is firing from all sides.

Ambulance sirens can be heard everywhere.  This is nothing new, but today its horrible! ” ~ Father Georges Sabe, 12.30pm

“The whole building where I am has just shook, it was almost lifted off the ground. The battles are terrible outside, you have no idea”. ~ Pierre le Corf

  1. I was going to say that the thing that is most disconcerting to me in all of this are the children, that their full weight of their emotional trauma, for those who survive physical injury or are not themselves injured in this manner, is forever. The hurt will never be undone. But then I also recognize that the same goes for the men and women being subjected to this terror. They do not suffer any less.

    And why is this all happening? In all that the word signifies in terms of status and power: money.

    So they murder and torment people for profits, and never mind that they are already rich beyond even their own comprehension.

    It is all so incomprehensible. And utterly reprehensible.

  2. They will do to Syria what they did with Lebanon in the late 70s regardless of SAA winning the war they will continue to destabalise Syria. Kerry just gave Assad an ultimatum either he goes by August or else. Evil people the western leaders have become. Full blown fascism is all one can say about the present reality in the west.
