Stopping Broadcast of Addounia TV on Arabsat & Nilesat Preparatory Step to Launch Misinformation Campaign

DAMASCUS, (SANA) – The administrations of Arabsat and Nilesat on Thursday stopped the broadcast of Addounia TV Channel in line with the misleading campaign launched against Syria.

Meanwhile, Twitter social networking website published misleading news on tactical withdrawal of the Syrian army as part of the same campaign.

The Ministry stressed that the Syrian armed forces are continuing their operations to eliminate terrorists.

“We want to assure our people that the government and the Syrian armed forces are ready for such step,” said that Ministry, adding that what these satellite channels broadcast and will broadcast is “completely untrue”.
