Syrian people warned against ‘fake TV channel’

The site of an attack on the pro-government Al-Ikhbariya satellite television channel’s offices outside Damascus, in which three staff members were killed on June 27, 2012.

The Syrian Information Ministry has cautioned the nation against a “fake” satellite channel which carries the logo of the country’s national TV but has actually been set up to broadcast anti-government reports

At the moment a fake channel is broadcasting Syrian national songs as well as its national anthem to lay the ground for broadcasting the programs that their nature is clear, the ministry said in a statement.

It issued the warning after armed terrorists kidnapped Mohammed Saeed, a broadcaster of the Syrian television, in Jdeidet Artouz area of the capital Damascus.

The ministry also warned that it is possible that the Syrian national TV is taken off air any moment and replaced by the fake channel. Syrian officials had previously warned about an intensifying media campaign and spread of rumors against the Damascus government.

Syrian Satellite channel Dunya TV, which has played a key role in disclosing different plots against Syria, has been taken off air from Arab satellites of Arabsat and Nilesat.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011, with demonstrations being held both against and in support of President Bashar al-Assad’s government.

The Syrian government says outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorists are the driving factor behind the unrest and deadly violence while the opposition accuses the security forces of being behind the killings.

Damascus also says that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country and the security forces have been given clear instructions not to harm civilians.
