“Moderate Opposition” Turned Aleppo’s National Hospital Into Military HQ & Weapons Depot

by South Front

A fresh video from the Youtube channel entitled “Syria Future Agency” (سورية المستقبل) shows the recently liberated area of the National Hospital in the Syrian city of Aleppo. Syrian government forces took control of the area on December 4 and the video appeared on December 5.
The video confirms that before its liberation the hospital had been used by the so-called “moderate opposition” as a military headquarters, a weapons depot and even a prison.

The area with ammunition:
The Syrian army also founds lots of various flags that suggest which militant factions controlled in the area and the level of their “moderatism”.
A well known flag of the “moderate opposition”:
Jaysh al-Islam is a coalition of Islamist and Salafist units.  It has well-known ties with Jabhat al-Nusra (the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda):
Four Liwa al-Tawhid battalions in Aleppo joined child beheaders from Harakat Nour al-Din al-Zenki in October 2016:
Variations of the Shahada flag are commonly used by various Jabhat al-Nusra-linked factions in Aleppo:
The Levant Front is a coalition of various Salafi and Islamic factions allied with Jabhat al-Nusra:
A high number of paper works and ID cards belonging to militants confirms that the hospital used to be a military HQ and even a Sharia court for a long time:
Now it’s clear that at least some mainstream media reports about “Aleppo hospitals” destroyed by the “bloody Assad regime” could be true.

We are being consistently lied to about the situation in East Aleppo. I recommend this:
It’s excellent in its entirety, but long. However go to 2.00 hrs in and you will hear Jon Snow on Channel 4 news being confronted with the truth in Syria – how fake news has completely brain washed the WMSM’s narrative and when faced with the truth they don’t know what to say.

One question is whether the hospital attack was deliberately supported by US intelligence to persuade the Syrian/Russian forces against allowing the ‘rebels’ to surrender.
The last thing the US/UK/Nato side wants is for their ‘advisers’ in East Aleppo to be caught alive. They may well now have been thrown under the bus to preserve their anonymity and the western pretence that the ‘rebels’ are plucky freedom fighters against ‘barrelbombing, gassing, hospital destroying’ etc., Assad rather than nato backed mercenary fanatics.

The western SF will have prepared escape routes well in advance, probably the first thing they sorted out. It was possibly via a specifically constructed long tunnel used for no other purpose. They will have had no qualms about killing any takfiris that knew about them. All they would need is a suitable diversion, such as a mass exodus of civilians and off they go. They will have tried to remove all evidence of their presence but there is always a degree of loss of control of information.

Tried to post this information in the graun just now.
It was removed very quickly.
Have got before and after screenshots.

The Guardian’s journalists, still Trump drunk after their humiliating defeat in the recent US election, are retreating behind a screen of pure fantasy about events in Aleppo that’s pathetic to watch. No wonder the liberal left is so despised by so many ordinary people and their prestigeous publications are doomed financially. They choose to ignore reality and instead embrace a set of fantasies that bring them temporary comfort in their virtual Versaille, whilst outside people are getting angry at the way they are forced to live.

According to the WMSM most of the moderate Syrian opposition were busy running hospitals and schools while white hatted humanitarians saved children and families from barrel bombs and gas attacks by Russia and the Syrian army.
All of this while their children were being kept there by parents who refused to leave while their houses were being bombed and obliterated as their children tweeted in fluent English and read Harry Potter books.
Looks like the reality reported and pictured above is much different.
I really must stop reading this fake news!

Who cares!? Western propaganda machine pushed their narrative to a point that nobody believes them even if they (by some accident) tell the truth. Aleppo offensive is not going to stop one way or the other. Just as Berlin did not stop till it was all over.
