‘NATO air force killing hundreds of Syrian civilians’


This video says about itself:

20 July 2016

This is footage from earlier this month inside a US plane bombing the city of Manbij on the north of Halab, Syria. Yesterday, bombs like this from planes like this killed over 100 civilians in Manbij who were simply trying to flee the fighting. Women, men, children, elderly. 11 children killed according to reports, probably many more than that in fact.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

In a letter, the [Syrian opposition] group writes that recently hundreds of civilians, mostly women and children, were killed in bombings in Manbij, in northern Syria. “Families are buried under the rubble caused by the bombing by the International Coalition“, the opposition writes. Yesterday alone 56 civilians are said to have been killed in attacks in the region. …

Hundreds of people die, but the international community is silent.”

The gunman who slaughtered 49 people in an Orlando, Florida, nightclub told a police negotiator the attack was a protest against U.S. bombings of Islamic State targets in Iraq and Syria. ”You have to tell the U.S. government to stop bombing. They are killing too many children. They are killing too many women, okay,” gunman Omar Mateen told a police negotiator by phone during the June attack, hours before the killer died in a shootout with police: here.
