Civilian casualties from Syria strikes; media silent

Civilian casualties from Syria strikes; media silent

According to Al Jazeera, more than 27 people, mostly civilians, were killed in Tuesday’s U.S. led air strikes in Syria.

…The missiles targeted Jabhat Al-Nusra headquarters in the town of Kafr Diryan in northwestern Syria.

In addition, two residential neighborhoods in the town were completely destroyed. More than 27 people were killed in these air strikes, most of whom were civilians according to the fire brigades.

There were five strikes while the people were asleep. We pulled out 21 men, three women and six children. Some died in our arms while others were taken to hospital, and we were informed that they were martyred.

The locals say that this is the first time that they were attacked by missiles since the outbreak of Syrian revolution.  The paradox, they say, is they were bombed not by the Syrian regime, but by an international coalition which killed and wounded many of them under the pretext of fighting terrorism.

One resident told the reporter:

This coalition is not against terrorism. It is against civilians, as you can see.

The reports of civilian casualties in Syria have drawn no condemnations from the MSM, any expressions of outrage from the White House or U.S. State Department.
