Aleppo

There would be greater outrage if Israel carried out 1% of death and destruction by Syrian forces

What is happening in Aleppo (and Syria in general) is truly shocking. Yet most Muslims do not seem to be as outraged as when Israel attacks the Palestinians or even Lebanon.

A lot of leftists you can ignore because they are more defined by their awe of Russia and anti American sentiment more than by justice or humanity.

But even Muslims are the same. I have even come across sentiment suggesting “aah well, atleast it is Muslims killing Muslims” as if that is some sort of excuse and makes it less bad.

That makes it worse – people who are meant to have the highest humanity and morality carrying out such despicable acts.

The fall of Aleppo

As we speak the final opposition held areas of Eastern Aleppo are falling in the face of a massive onslaught of Russian air power, Syrian armed forces and their alliwed Lebanese and Iraqi shia militias.

Even before the final onslaught there were many reports that from civilians that had fled Aleppo, the men had been stripped out and disapeared. No doubt many of these will have been tortured and many murdered.

Probable Fall of Aleppo to the Assad regime

Recently, the Assad forces have managed to gain an upper hand in their fight to gain control of Aleppo which has now almost been encircled. This assault has been supported by russian air strikes that have often indicriminately targeted civilians and while purportedly targetted ISIS, they have notably stuck everyone but ISIS.

Encirclement will allow the Assad regime to carry out their time tested practice of starving the place into submission or death. A detailed map of the city and who controls what is available at this link
