Syria denies “Massacre in Homs”

(Dp-news)

DAMASCUS- Syrian Government denied Saturday the assault in Homs, which has been one of the main flashpoints of opposition during the uprising, and where a barrage of mortar shells by Syria’s regime forces killed 200 people and wounded hundreds in Homs, according to press reports published earlier.

Press reports considered the assault “an offensive that appears to be the bloodiest episode in the nearly 11-month-old uprising against President Bashar al-Assad`s regime”

But Syrian TV said Saturday that the assault reports were untrue and come in the context of "incitement by the armed groups" against Syria to be exploited at UN Security Council. It also claimed that corpses shown in amateur pictures and videos posted online — bodies that activists said were victims of the assault — were purportedly of people kidnapped by "terrorist armed groups" who filmed them to portray them as victims of the alleged shelling.





Other Syria state-run media dismissed the reports as a "hysterical campaign of incitement" by armed gangs designed to influence the UN.

"The civilians shown by satellite television stations are citizens who were kidnapped and killed by armed gunmen," said a report on Sana news agency.



Syria state-run news agency SANA reported Saturday an information source underscored “The ongoing distortion, falsification and instigation media campaigns by some satellite channels are but to cover the crimes and aggressions of the armed terrorist groups in Syria. Some satellite channels earlier Saturday aired footage for a group of corpses with hands in chains claiming them to be killed by Army bombardment, while they in fact are the corpses of the innocent citizens kidnapped, tortured and slaughtered by the armed terrorist groups.”

SANA claimed “The corpses, in fetters, bear signs of torture and organized killing with no signs of artillery or mortar shells. Some Syrian citizens made calls to the Syrian TV asserting that they have seen in the footage of the corpses aired by Satellites of lies some of their relatives who were kidnapped earlier by armed terrorist groups.”



Syrian TV along with state-run SANA accused Syrian oppositions abroad and foreign partners who aim to destabilize Syria “Tens of innocent civilians were kidnapped by armed terrorist groups in different places inside Syria; many of them were tortured, raped and killed at the hands of the terrorists, supported by some countries like Qatar, Turkey, France and many others.”

“However, the TV satellites of lies and fabrications did not highlight the fact that had the killed were hit by mortars, as they claim; their bodies would have been turned into tiny pieces.” SANA added.



“The TV Satellites of instigation, partners with the armed terrorist groups and so-called the Istanbul council, have been launching a hysterical campaign of provocation and incitement to the shedding of the more of Syrian blood as to influence the stances of some countries at the UN Security Council,” the information source told SANA.

SANA added “Some media outlets have launched frenetic media campaigns against Syria disseminating false information about Syria Army shelling of civilians in different Syrian Governorates, villages, quarters and cities. Such campaigns are viewed by many observers and analysts as a sinister bid to negatively affect the ongoing UN Security Council discussions about Syria.”



According to SANA and Syrian TV reports; different Syrian Governorates life is normal, especially in Damascus and its country side, Hama, and Homs, where such media outlets, al-Arabyia- invented not only fabricated news but virtual correspondents on the ground, as it reported on Saturday.

SANA concluded “The citizens called on the Syrian army to enter the city of Homs to protect them from the crimes of the armed terrorist groups that have been killing and abducting citizens and shelling the houses and neighborhoods.” in a clear sign that repeats what Syria FM Walid al-Moallem spoke earlier last month about “violence had been Syrians choice and discussion to end clashes.”



International and foreigner press and media journalists used to indicate that they cannot independently confirm opposition or government reports from Syria because the regime has restricted journalists' access to the country and especially flashpoints and conflicted areas.



At least 7,100 people, including 461 children, have died since the start of the Syrian uprising in March, according to the Local Coordination Committees, a network of opposition activists that organizes and documents protests in Syria.

The United Nations estimated in December that more than 5,400 people have died in the Syrian conflict since March but has not been able to update that figure because of the situation on the ground.

The Syrian government says at least 2,000 members of its security forces have been killed fighting "armed gangs and terrorists"
