ALEPPO UPDATES: The Beginning of the End ~ Dr Nabil Antaki

The momentum has shifted in Aleppo this week as the Syrian Army begin to advance, steadily driving out Western and Gulf-backed terrorist fighters under the command of Al Nusra Front – from their occupied enclaves in Eastern Aleppo. 21WIRE will post continuous ALEPPO UPDATES as we receive information…

21st Century Wire says…

As the Syrian Arab Army make huge advances into the NATO and Gulf State funded & armed mercenary-held areas of East Aleppo, the NATO-aligned media is amplifying the last remnants of tattered propaganda left available to them. Their repertoire has been severely reduced and will be even further decimated as Syrian people, civilians, trapped inside East Aleppo by the multiple gangs of armed militants led by Nusra Front (Al Qaeda), begin to make their way out into the safety of the Syrian government-held West Aleppo. 

As the East Aleppo civilians emerge from the darkness of their life under terrorist and militant occupation, so will the Aleppo black box emerge. The true narrative will be revealed and it will unequivocally challenge the corporate media lies. The real #Fakenews will be exposed.

Over the next few days & weeks as the stories break one by one, 21st Century Wire will try to bring you the accounts from on the ground in Aleppo and across Syria from people whose relatives will finally be liberated.

Tonight this short commentary is from Dr Nabil Antaki, a gastroenterologist, based in West Aleppo who has fiercely resisted the corporate media portrayal of events in his home city.

The Beginning of the End?

Without wanting to be too optimistic, the news from the Aleppo front-lines are good with a few reservations.

Two of the major suburbs of East Aleppo held by the rebel-terrorists for the last four years, Hanano and Sakhour, have been fully liberated by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) which is advancing rapidly street by street.

At least, 4000 of our fellow citizens from East Aleppo, held hostage by the terrorists, have been able to flee with the help of the SAA and have taken temporary refuge in Jibrine. Others have been able to escape via Sheikh Maqsoud (Northern entry point into West Aleppo).  Here are two pieces of good news.

However there are two pieces of bad news and a concern: firstly, some of the fleeing East Aleppo civilians were killed by the terrorists and secondly, 12 civilians of West Aleppo were murdered today, by the rain of mortars still being launched by terrorists inside East Aleppo.  We could say it was in reprisal for the SAA advances, but we have been subjected to these attacks daily for the last four years. 

What do we fear? Perhaps that western governments and certain organisations will start campaigning for another ceasefire for “humanitarian reasons” (as they have done in the past). Or, that they will launch another media campaign in an attempt to halt the SAA campaign to liberate the people of East and West Aleppo from the clutches of the terrorist groups.

Today, two media outlets were already asking me about the “humanitarian catastrophe” in East Aleppo. We await the inevitable disinformation that they will publish.

French version

Sans vouloir vendre la peau de l’ours avant de l’avoir abattu, les nouvelles du front d’Alep sont, aujourd’hui, bonnes avec une certaine reserve.

Deux des principaux quartiers de la banlieue Est d’Alep tenus par les rebelles-terroristes depuis 4 ans (Hanano et Sakhour) ont été libérés par l’armée syrienne et celle-ci avance en gagnant rue après rue.

Au moins Quatre mille de nos concitoyens d’Alep- Est, retenus en otage par les terroristes, ont pu fuir avec l’aide de l’armée syrienne et ont été abrités momentanément a Jibrine. D’autres ont pu fuir vers Cheikh Maksoud. Voici, certes, 2 bonnes nouvelles.

Mais, en revanche, il y’a 2 mauvaises nouvelles et une apprehension: D’une part, des civils Alépins d’Alep-Est qui tentaient de fuir ont été abattus par les terroristes et d’autre part les obus de mortiers continuent a pleuvoir sur Alep lancés par les terroristes d’Alep-Est avec 12 victimes aujourd’hui. On serait tentés de dire que c’est en représailles a l’avancée de l’armée si nous n’étions pas les cibles de ces bombardements quotidiens depuis 4 ans.

L’apprehension vient de notre crainte de voir les gouvernements occidentaux et certains organismes demander une trêve pour raisons humanitaires ( comme ils l’ont fait avec succes dans le passé) et orchestrer une campagne médiatique dans le meme sens afin d’empêcher l’armée de l’Etat syrien de poursuivre la libération complète Alep des groupes terroristes, .

D’ailleurs, aujourd’hui, lors de 2 interviews téléphoniques avec 2 medias, la question de la “catastrophe humanitaire” a Alep-Est m’a été posée. La désinformation se poursuit…
