Human Rights Watch Conducted a Biased Investigation for the School “Bombing” in Idlib

1046811090By Mehmet Ersoy

On November 6, Human Rights Watch published a report in which the Syrian government and its allies were accused of carrying out an airstrike on a school in Idlib province in late October, 2016.

According to the report, on October 26, the school was hit by two Su-24 jets used by the Syrian and Russian AFs. Citing some witnesses, the organization claims the jets dropped from 7 to 9 parachute bombs on the school and nearby road. It says no military facilities were in the school or by it and all the casualties were among civilians.

It should be noted that, based on HRW’s report, the Western media went off blaming Assad and his allies for murdering civilians. The artificial information hysteria even forced UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to make a hasty loud statement on military crimes in Idlib.

In its turn, the next day only the Russian side could provide sound evidence of the fact that the Syrian aviation and its allies had nothing to do with the attack on the school in Hassa.

Inside Syria Media Center would like to look into the matter. In its report, HRW quotes some phone interviews with the witnesses. We attempted to contact the organization’s press desk but the human rights activists refused to provide details on the persons involved in the report.

In the conversation, HRW claimed the video in their report could be used as the real evidence. However, it’s quite arguable.

A doubtful video footage (

The footage of an anti-governmental channel Revolutionary Forces of Syria Media Office published in the HRW report shows an airstrike, but it’s hard to distinguish the exact place of the accident. The analysis of this video makes it clear that the international human rights organization takes into consideration only one side of the Syrian conflict, i.e. the armed opposition’s militants. At the same time, it almost ignored the arguments of the other side of the conflict and marked them as untenable.

In addition, the photos published in the media clearly show that just one wall is damaged and all the tables still standing. Moreover, not a single picture has any sign of people killed.

Besides, in its report, the organization provided no evidence of the presence of children both in the school and in Hassa village. It’s not a secret that since Jabhat Fateh al-Sham (former Jabhat al-Nusra) came to Idlib province, local schools stopped functioning.

Thus, HRW’s report mostly includes ungrounded evidence of bogus “airstrikes’ witnesses” and doubtful photos and video footage. Human Rights watch seems to have taken a biased approach towards the investigation instead of performing its direct duty – to protect the rights of civilians in Syria. HRW is obviously carrying out an information campaign on behalf of the Syrian opposition as the infamous White Helmets do.

  1. We already know the synagogue owns the (antichrist), U.N. as it did the league of nations before it. We further know the Judas Class /kosher media is owned and operated by same. Now we can add yet another “benevolent” int’l organization to that foul list of people/organizations/nations who have surrendered their God,souls, nations, people to the synagogue for a mere 30 pieces of silver.

  2. Where are all the expert Generals who can back this attack with a military plane and compare the same attack with one of their bombs. Can they compare the bombing of Gaza by Israel and show us how the table and chairs never got damaged and is that a pile of sand directly behind the blown out wall as thats what it looks like covering the legs of the desk.

  3. So the bombs took the wall out , but managed to leave the desk and chairs upright with some dust on them.
    MSM in Syria is the same as here in the Usurped Ztates.
    The MSM seems to chump the world.
