The Salafist armed militiamen had once again played a huge ruse on the massacre committed in Halfaya, Hama’s Countryside, accentuating that it was nothing but a fabrication. Similar events occurred when “al-Jazeera” Channel’s reporter in Homs Palestinian Khaled Abu Salah used techniques to fabricate artillery sound effects and massacres. Several areas witnessed massacres committed by the militiamen on the evening of every Arab League and UN Security Council meeting on Syria or the UN envoy visit to Damascus.
Moreover, in Halfaya, the same policy was adopted by these militiamen and their regional and international advocators, since the fake massacre occurred on the evening of UN envoy al-Akhdar al-Ibrahimi’s visit to Damascus.
In this context, sources in the Syrian opposition abroad iterated to “al-Ahed” news website what “al-Haqiqa” website – managed by Syrian opposer Nizar Nayouf – had mentioned about the huge ruse the armed terrorists plotted in Halfaya, indicating that, “the area does not even have a bakery.”
The sources explained what had happened, stating that the battle took place between the Arab Syrian Army and the Salafist militiamen,” adding, “The Syrian Army was able to annihilate 43 armed gunmen, while 7 civilians who happened to be in the area were killed.”
“13 corpses were not identified, indicating that they are foreign militiamen, since corpses that could not be identified in a small village strikes as an odd matter,” the sources further elaborated, adding that, “An Aleppo militiaman was identified because he was Syrian, while other names were blackened out because they are non-Syrian.”
Al-Ahed News website was able to acquire the names of the 50 killed men from the Syrian opposition sources, excluding the 13 foreigners killed. All corpses were males, raising questions on why there were not any children or women around the “bakery” during a bread crisis.
