New photos emerge of Omran Daqneesh, the boy who became a symbol of Aleppo’s suffering


Omran Daqneesh during the siege of Aleppo, left, and today, right. 

THE TELEGRAPH –  “The child Omran, those who tried to shed Syrian blood mislead the news that he was hit by the Syrian Arab Army. “Here he now lives in the Syrian state with its army, its leader and its people.” CONTINUE READING

    How nice of the Torygraph, as it is known in England, to correct the impression created by their own organ when originally reporting the Omran Daqneesh story back in August 2016 … http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/08/19/i-took-the-picture-of-little-omran-in-aleppo/

    And how nice of Raf Sanchez to pen the latest article on the recent photos of Omran Daqneesh, ‘the boy who became a symbol of Aleppo’s suffering’. As Raf says … “Omran’s image was widely used to illustrate the brutality of the Assad regime as it tried to crush the opposition in Aleppo, Syria’s largest city.” And how did he become of symbol of Aleppo’s suffering? Why, step forward one Raf Sanchez! …

    “The image has been shared thousands of times by people on social media, including by David Miliband, the former UK foreign secretary and now president of the International Rescue Committee. The initial tweet by the Telegraph reporter Raf Sanchez has been retweeted more than 12,000 times.” – https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/aug/18/boy-in-the-ambulance-image-emerges-syrian-child-aleppo-rubble

    Presumably Raf rushed to publish the new pics because the story was already out on Farcebook and the boy’s father was saying some rather uncharitable things about the Zionist Meeja … “”They wanted to trade in his blood and published his photos,” he said. He said his shaved his son’s head to try to disguise him and shield him from media attention.”

    Indeedy weedy. Thanks Raf. And while you’re at it, you might also consider referring to the ‘democratically elected Assad government’, rather than the ‘Assad regime’, a loaded word used by the fake news to refer to any government their masters don’t approve of.
