Western media distorts voice of truth in Syria

Syrian journalists say some Western and Arabic satellite news channels are fabricating events to accuse the Syrian army of attacking and terrorizing civilians.

Western and Arab news networks fabricate and falsify events and actions of Syrian unrest to mislead the public opinion and accuse the Syrian government of being brutal. Syrian journalists prove the fabrications of those media outlets through facts that aim to deliver the truth to the public.


They refer to the recent case of Mohammad Salim Kabbani who used to go on live on Al-Jazira , Al-Arabia and Orient TV channels as the spokesman for the foreign-backed militant group calling itself the Free Syria Army. 

He appeared on Arab media outlets as if he was in the city of Homs while he was in Northern Lebanon city of Tripoli. Mohammad salim Kabbani confessed 3 weeks ago in an interview on the Syrian Television that he was fabricating events to get money from those media outlets in return. 

Since the beginning of the unrest, pro-government journalists have been attacked, kidnapped or even killed. Observers here say this is to stop Syrian media TV channels from reporting the reality on the ground. The Syrian Union of journalism condemned the attacks against journalist saying they only aim to distort the voice of truth.

Observers say the Syrian state television is always showing new evidence on foreign countries interference in the Syrian internal conflict. On Sunday the State television showed a confession of a foreign insurgent that was captured fighting in Syria.

Syria has been the scene of unrest since March 2011. Damascus blames terrorists for the unrest and deadly violence. It says the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country. But the opposition accuses the security forces of being behind the killings.

As the cases of captured terrorists in Syria show, the western media try to portray a false picture of what is going on in the country. Observers say this is the main scenario that the US and its allies have been pursuing since the beginning of the unrest in Syria.
