-republished on 21st Century Wire, with this SANA update:
“Aleppo/Daraa: The death toll from terrorist attacks with rocket shells launched by Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists on al-Zahraa town and residential areas in Aleppo city rose to 16 killed and 86 injured.”
Two days ago, a friend in Aleppo messaged me: “Aleppo is burning. Numerous shells.”
He was not referring to the lies found in corporate media on Aleppo, but instead to the unreported reality: foreign-backed terrorists have continued mortaring, rocketing, hell-cannoning Aleppo’s residential areas.
Since his message, various Syrian news outlets and individuals have reported on further bombardments of Aleppo, as well as yet another terrorist bombing in Damascus’ Sayyeda Zeinab district, an area which has been repeatedly targeted by western-backed terrorists.
From Damascus countryside, Syrian journalist, Mohamed Ali, wrote:
“Live from the explosion scene near Sayyeda Zeinab quarter in Damascus countryside. At least 8 people killed and 20 injured.

Later, Xinhua updated, “Death toll rises to 15 in Syria checkpoint car bomb attack”, noting:
“…The driver passed through two military checkpoints and when he reached the third at the entrance of the town of Diyabiyah south of the Shiite district of Sayyidah Zaynab, soldiers demanded to thoroughly search the vehicle and that’s when the driver set it off, said the source on a condition of anonymity.
The car was a white double cabin pick-up truck, laden with at least 100 kilograms of explosives…
If the vehicle had succeeded to pass through the third checkpoint unchecked properly, it would have reached a densely-populated area and it would have caused a massacre, according to the source…”
