Crimes near Aleppo caused by arming of terrorists from abroad.

Russia Today (RT) has conducted an interview with the spokesperson of the Russian mission to the United Nations (UN) in the beautiful Geneva, Maria Khodynskaya, in terms of the recent events in Syria and the horrible massacre carried out by foreign-supported terrorists against over 120 Syrians in Khan al-Assal, near the strategically important city of Aleppo (Halab).

Maria Khodynskaya, the spokesperson of the Russian mission to the UN in Geneva, said in this interview that the massacre that has been committed by a group of terrorists in Khan al-Assal near the Syrian city of Aleppo (Halab), and whereby the terrorists have massacred over 120 Syrians, was caused by the financially support as well as the arming of these terrorists from foreign sides.

While the spokesperson of the Russian mission to the United Nations (UN) has not named specific governments that are behind the financially support and arming of these criminals and terrorists on Syrian soil, it is already clear since months that Western governments such like the leading parties in Britain, France, Germany as well as Italy and Sweden support the terrorist groups in Syria.

Not to mention the U.S. administration in Washington and their best friends, the totalitarian dictatorships of Saudi Arabia and Qatar, although Qatar has recently withdrawn from the support of the terrorists in Syria in order to concentrate on other topics. In addition, even the House of Saud seems to be interested to end the support of the terrorists in Syria due to the situation that the foreign-supported proxy war against the secular Syrian nation cannot be won.

The attempt to overthrow the Syrian government and President Bashar al-Assad has failed. That the Western powers and their regional allies and proxy states have bet on the situation that they could be able to overthrow the secular Syrian leadership by boosting the secular tensions in order to implement a sectarian war (Salvador option) between the different confessions in Syria and supporting criminals and thugs from jails and dark holes of the Arab world, so that they wage their criminal jihad on Syrian soil was a huge mistake.

The foreign-supported terrorist groups have committed too much crimes against Syrian civilians, and thus, they lost the support of most of their backers and supporters within the Syrian population.

That means, the terrorists have a decreasing support in the partly sectarian villages in Syria and are, for example, no more able to bet on the support of the local Syrians or to hide between the civilians in villages.

Further, the fear of the normal Syrian population has increased due to the sectarian hatred of these murderous terrorist groups and they stick together, shoulder to shoulder, in order to defend their homes and the lives of their relatives against these criminals, which also means that they completely support the Syrian Arab army (SAA) that consists of all parts of the Syrian society.

In addition, the Western support in the attempt to topple the Syrian President al-Assad and his government in the capital Damascus has only lead to several new “Al-Qaeda brigades” and a general strengthening of al-Qaeda. Further, the support of Western states for such kind of terrorists and criminals has led to a huge bloodshed within the borders of the Arab nation.

The Spokesperson of the Russian mission to the UN in Geneva, Maria Khodynskaya, said in her recent interview with Russia Today (RT) that the main step to prevent such massacres committed by the terrorists in Syria would be to stop the financially support and the arming of these terrorists from abroad. It is easy – when the terrorists do not receive modern and new weapons, they are no more able to commit such horrible crimes against Syrian civilians. This is known since a long time but the Western governments just did and do not care.

They might care in a situation when the terrorists, initially armed by the support of Western states, present them their hatred against the Western structures of the societies in Europe and the United States. One knows it – the Western governments have supported the arming of Islamists who would not hesitate to attack European states or some famous landmarks in the United States. And what about Big Ben?

Maria Khodynskaya also said in this interview with Russia Today (RT) that the international community, the so-called community of values, has to condemn such massacres and crime against Syrian civilians clearly and unanimously and not to remain completely silent about the crimes of their supported terrorist gangs in Syria.

The Spokesperson of the Russian mission to the UN in Geneva, Maria Khodynskaya, also pointed out that the Russian government has tried by several initiatives to reach an international condemnation of such massacres and crimes committed by the terrorists in Syria, but Western governments “shot them down” both in the Human Rights Council and the UN Security Council (UNSC), because “the West in only interested in directing condemnation at the Syrian government and overlooking what extremists are doing in Syria.”

    Except for the Czechs and the French, everybody seems to be putting more and more daylight between themselves and the guerilla swine. It would be interesting to know if any of the new infantry weapons were manufactured in Red China, Vietnam, Venezuela or Egypt. Those four countries also manufacture various Russian designed weapons, under license; there are others, of course, but those might take a silent interest in putting egg on the US’ face. KSA is probably stuck with no real way out, but the Turks seem to be less and less enthusiastic about the enterprise. Hm.

    It is about time for the War Crime Tribunal at The Hagues to step up and start listing the persecution for the several responsible to those crimes.
