Speaking at a UN Security Council session held to discuss the humanitarian situation in Aleppo, Syria's permanent representative to the UN, Bashar Al-Jaafari, said that no one in the world is more committed than the Syrian government to protect the Syrians' lives which suffer from the terrorism of armed organizations. He added that terrorist attacks on civilians in Aleppo thrice coincided with the announcement of humanitarian pauses that were aimed at civilian's lives saving.

However, the West stubbornly ignores the significant efforts made by the Syrian authorities to rescue civilians including the introduction of humanitarian pauses, organization of humanitarian corridors, and delivery of humanitarian assistance.

In addition, Al-Jaafari pointed out that all who commit crimes should be declared terrorists, no matter which group they belong to. Anyone who raises a weapon against civilians can't belong to the "moderate" opposition.

A striking example of the relevance of his words is a rocket attack on a primary school in Aleppo in the Al-Furqan on Sunday, November 20. It resulted in death of ten people, including eight children. More than 70 people were wounded.

Obviously, this attack does not have any explanation, because there are no military targets or positions of the government troops in the vicinity of the school.

In addition, it is shocking that the western media did not react to the incident. Most likely the media tried to conceal the horrors and atrocities committed by the radical terrorists in Syria on a daily basis. It's still not clear who was behind the attack, terrorists or militants of the opposition. In fact it is not so important especially for the parents of killed and wounded children. There isn't and couldn't be any justification for these crimes.

Now it becomes clear why Washington continues to ignore the crimes of terrorists in Aleppo. The US failed to separate opposition fighters from the terrorists in Aleppo, because the majority of the opposition forces joined terrorists and their crimes are of the same kin.
