Syria: War crimes by terrorist FSA

The Free Syrian Army, a motley collection of fanatics, Islamists, Chechen and Afghan mercenaries, terrorists, murderers, rapists, torturers, looters, thieves, arsonists, you name it... is yet again exposed in this column practising war crimes, this time the forced starvation of millions of civilians. And the west supports these monsters?

The Vatican news agency Fides is the latest to confirm that the Free Syrian Army, which Cameron, Hollande and Obama from the FUKUS Axis (France-UK.US) back as being the alternative to President Assad, has been practising the forced starvation of civilians in Aleppo, living in areas supporting the Government. As we reported in this column last week, the situation is desperate.

Fides has released a report made by five Franciscan friars who visited the city, confirming that the civilian population in areas loyal to the Government are being deprived of food and medication by Syrian terrorist forces fighting the Government. Friar Bernard informed Fides: "The famine is upon us. People have nothing, they are impoverished and cry. We focus on helping families and refugees. The Christian quarters are in the middle between the area controlled by the army and the armed groups. The suffering of the civilian population, of any religion, is immense. The blockade of food is against all basic humanitarian law. People find it hard to even get bread".

The situation has become exponentially worse since the terrorist forces took the entrance on the road to Hama, from where supplies used to enter the city. Farmers are prevented from entering the city, food supplies are becoming stretched to critical point and prices have gone through the roof. Friar Bernard reiterates the words used in this column last week: a humanitarian crisis is threatening millions in the Syrian city of Aleppo.

The civilian population twice took to the streets last week to protest against the blockade but were attacked by what eye witnesses record as Chechen mercenaries fighting for the terrorist forces (FSA) and some protesters were shot dead. Government forces have been desperately trying to reach the civilian population to distribute food to the hungry, milk for babies and medicine for the sick and elderly but to no avail, due to the fact that more sophisticated weaponry has reached the terrorist forces, allegedly supplied by the west indirectly through Saudi Arabian channels.

To make sure the blockade is complete, the terrorist forces have detonated explosives under a bridge, destroying it and have blocked a road. Yet the West continues to support these demons.

A banner was recently circulated among the terrorist forces and the civilians residing in the areas of the city under their control, that those supplying food, medicines, baby milk, dairy products, oil and other staple items would be killed.

The joint order by FSA rebels and Jabhat Al-Nusra militants reads: "To all managers and owners of mills, grain silos and merchants: It is prohibited to transport flour and other types of grain to the non liberated areas wherever they come from. All violators will be punished by law."

Atrocities carried out by the Syrian terrorist forces have turned swathes of the population in Aleppo against them, the latest being the execution of a child. There are reports of Government troops risking their lives as they make desperate attempts to break the blockade and free the beleaguered citizens of Aleppo from the terrorist hordes supported by the west and there are eye-witness accounts of some supplies being brought in by the Syrian Armed Forces from Lattakia. The response from the FSA? Strafing government-held civilian areas, in "revenge". Did they yell "Allahu Akhbar!" as the shells hit? And Cameron, Hollande and Obama behaving like the three brass monkeys - see no evil...

The forced deprivation of essential foods is a war crime under international law. But then again, international law is hardly respected by the west, is it? For instance the Russian report, 80 pages of it, on the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian terrorists in March, has not even been opened by the FUKUS Axis at the UNO building in New York.

As if after Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya, any more proof were needed of the evil and sinister intentions of an immoral west, Syria provides the cherry on the cake.
