US targets civilians in Syria (VIDEO)

RT has interviewed Syrians who told of the full brutality of the illegal US military operations in the country.

RT has interviewed families who have escaped the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa in Syria where civilians stated that the US and its allies directly and seemingly deliberately targeted known civilian areas.

According to a former resident of Raqqa,

“We were directly targeted by the coalition after their reconnaissance craft filmed us, it was at a low altitude.

It was very clear that there were no insurgents in that area, there were kids playing in the streets and we were bringing water from a water tap, sipping drops. We were filmed, then directly targeted after hours. Our house and the civilian houses around us were directly targeted.”.

Another eyewitness told RT about America’s use of the chemical weapon white phosphorous in Syria. He said,

“It has been said that the coalition used white phosphorus in the Faros neighborhood of Raqqa. It was the aircraft. Who else would do that? It should be the aircraft. It targeted a civilian neighborhood and the close-by areas”.

The US has frequently hit civilian targets in Raqqa. One of the primary reasons for this is that the US refuses to cooperate with Syria and others with on the ground intelligence and knowledge of the region. The American presence in Syria is fully illegally according to international law. America forces have not been welcomed to Syria by the government nor has the United Nations authorised America’s actions.

By contrast, Russia and Iran are operating legally with the full support of the government in Damascus. This has allowed Russian and Iranian forces to collaborate and share intelligence, thus avoided the level of civilian casualties that has plagued the illegal US operation.

The US has been targeting civilians for decades. Those baby killers who sit in offices and guide killer drones in Afghanistan will kill anything that moves…men, women & children. Whistleblowers have confirmed that the drone operators are just kill crazy.

The US is controlled by jews, at the highest levels.
They can do this because they set up the Fed in 1913, and so can print all the dollars they need, with which they bought the Congress.
Jews hate Gentiles, and wish to kill them wherever they are found; men, women, and children.
“Even the best of the Gentiles should be killed”.
( R. Shimon ben Yochai. )
Now you know why this terrorist nation does what it does.

For the snowflakes who believe the WMSM this reality is fake news.

Their manufactured descent in the guise of identity politics is in the control of the 1% but do they realise? No.

There is a brilliant in-depth expose` on the role of the paid for engineers of safe descent here: http://21stcenturywire.com/2017/08/21/avaaz-the-pygmalion-virus-in-three-acts-act-one/
