voltairenet.org – No civilians inside liberated Al-Qusayr
Journalists who visited Al-Qusayr in the wake of its liberation by the Syrian Arab Army have noted the absence of civilians.
Since the beginning of the crisis, the UK-based Syrian Observatory of Human Rights (an affiliate of the Muslim Brotherhood, ”informed” by MI6) stated that the ”sons of Qusayr” were defending the city against the loyalist army.

One thousand foreign-backed fighters fled Al-Qusayr just before it was liberated.
