Journalister från den ryska nyhetskanalen ANNA rapporterar själva om sina iakttagelser från Houla, och man har intervjuat människor som bor i området som ger sina vittnesmål om vad som skedde. Det talas om väpnade gäng bestående av många hundra legokrigare som genomförde den barbariska attacken.
ANNA News Journalist Marat Musin about Houla Massacre
The town was attacked from the north-east by groups of bandits and mercenaries, numbering up to 700 people. The militants came from Ar-Rastan (the Brigade of al-Farouk from the Free Syrian Army led by the terrorist Abdul Razak Tlass and numbering 250), from the village of Akraba (led by the terrorist Yahya Al-Yousef), from the village Farlaha, joined by local gangsters, and from Al Hula.
When the rebels seized the lower checkpoint in the center of town and located next to the local police department, they began to sweep all the families loyal to the authorities in neighboring houses, including the elderly, women and children. Several families of the Al-Sayed were killed, including 20 young children and the family of the AbdulRazak. Many of those killed were “guilty” of the fact that they dared to chang from Sunnis to Shiites. The people were killed with knives and shot at point blank range. Then they presented the murdered to the UN and the international community as victims of bombings by the Syrian army, something that was not verified by any marks on their bodies.

Russia will not change stance on Syria: Putin aide
The spokesman of Russian President Vladimir Putin says Moscow will not change its stance toward Syria under “someone’s pressure.”
Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday that Russia’s position regarding the Syrian issue is “well-known… balanced and consistent and completely logical,” according to the Russian Interfax news agency.
“So it is hardly appropriate to talk about this position changing under someone’s pressure.”
nyhetsbanken.se – Likheter Hula – Racak
Den ryske ställföreträdande FN-ambassadören Alexander Pankin uppmanade till en oberoende undersökning av de nyligen inträffade händelserna i syriska Hula, där mer än 100 människor bragtes om livet. Han påvisade att bara en ytterst liten del av de döda var offer för beskjutning med tunga vapen, medan de andra blev avrättade. Det är en klar antydan om att eftersom Hula ligger i det av upproriska kontrollerade området kan beväpnade oppositionella ha utfört avrättningarna.
larouche.se – Kina: Ryssland måltavla i sabelskrammel mot Syrien
”Västvärlden är bra på att använda humanitärism som ursäkt för att uppnå dess sanna politiska och ekonomiska motiv. Från forna Jugoslavien till Mellanöstern har denna taktik använts, genom att först så politiska spänningar och sedan starta en militäroffensiv, för att bli av med oönskade politiker eller regimer under täckmanteln ‘humanitär’ intervention.”
”Dödandet [i Hula] kan komma att utnyttjas som en ursäkt för Västvärlden att ytterligare intervenera i Syrien. Kina och Ryssland bör noggrannt bevaka FN:s utredning och de berörda parternas reaktioner. De måste bestämt motsätta sig interventionismens hysteriska framfart.”
Marinella Correggia – Making sense out of Syria
Firstly, regular armies do not go around slaughtering children. Secondly, there is plenty of evidence of excellent relations between the Syrian Armed Forces and the children they protect from this western-backed scourge. Thirdly, we saw what the western-backed terrorists are capable of in Libya.
Fourthly, the immediate allegations were of sustained artillery barrages. Why then are the bodies intact? Why has the story now changed? Fifthly, would anyone put it past the terrorists to dress up in Syrian Army uniforms and try to incriminate the authorities? Sixth, what about the claims by the Syrian government that it had nothing to do with the massacre, after admitting there were terrorist elements in the area? Why are they ignored?
Point number seven: How can the west argue that ”even if the massacre was not committed by the Syrian government, the fact is that it failed to protect the people” a day after it accused the said government of the same? Point number eight: Who is financing and arming the Syrian terrorists?
Point number nine: Who profits? Are the Syrian Armed Forces going to massacre children under the noses of the UN inspectors? Would the Syrian Armed Forces or any Army formation do such a thing? Of course not. It was a staged mail-order massacre, ordered by the west, perpetrated by their terrorists in Syria and peddled on their media outlets. What a cynical and disgusting manipulation of the truth, using tens of children as victims.
Timothy Bancroft-Hinchey – Libya, Syria and the defeat of Western diplomacy
With the counter-weight to NATO removed with the voluntary dissolution of the USSR in 1991, the playground bully started running amok, firstly interfering in the Balkans, arming separatist groups and creating the conditions for the Balkans Wars; secondly interfering in Kosovo by creating the KLA (UÇK) and using Islamist terrorists against Serbia…
And today, inexorably, the schoolyard bully turns on Syria, once again arming terrorists and once again lying and manipulating photographic evidence to demonise the saint and sanctify the demon, as the circus prepares to move further eastwards to Iran, which is already being accused of creating nuclear weapons and as Mother Russia sees herself surrounded by a vice grip from the Baltic States in the north around to her entire western frontier, to the south-west and now to the south as the Iranian sword is prepared to be thrust into her belly. ”NATO will not move eastwards”. Remember those words?
Don’t trust them! Don’t give them any leeway whatsoever in the UNSC; give them a hand and they grab an arm and a leg. Libya was the line in the sand, they crossed it and destroyed their credibility for the foreseeable future with their Mission Creep, wholly predicted in this column from day 1. They did it before, they will do it again. They will use any excuse to arm any number of UN troops as a means to launch another spectacular mission creep.
The schoolyard bully understands one thing and one thing only: when the brothers of his victims line up in front of him, pull his face up to theirs, look into his eyes and inform him that they will smash his face down the other side of his cowardly little neck if he so much as dares to overstep the line again.
You do not use kids as a cynical excuse for starting a war, especially not if you are responsible for the trouble in the first place and for arming those who murdered them. Is that clear?
