إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Syrian Prime Minister Wael al-Halaqi on Monday toured battle-scarred Aleppo for the first time since the outbreak of fighting in the northern city in July, state television said.

"The prime minister went to Aleppo at the head of a delegation to assess the hardships faced by the city due to the criminal actions of terrorist gangs," the broadcaster said.

Rebels fighting the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad have been locked in fierce battles with government troops since July to control Aleppo, Syria's second city and commercial hub.

What are you imagining this "tour" was like jca, Wael in Bermuda shorts and Hawaiian shirt taking pictures of his wife in front of monuments?

by taking safe secure routes genius, how can the reporters of CNN, sky, ABC etc go to rebel held areas freely and report, do you even watch the news with two eyes?

How do they get killed the reporters from CNN or other networks, since they take safe secure routes genius. I am not watching the news like you, waiting for the rebels to kill Bashar so my life will get better. Wish you the best luck with your future life loser.

Desperate propaganda visit at best, nasrala who said a year ago "there is nothing in 7umus" and said on manar tv "syria is out of the danger zone" is now saying "things are very complicated in Syria" ..true, they are complicated for nasrala and his followers because whether they like it or not, bashar is gona be history and the winds of change are gona blow them away.

Give me a break,,,,, we have been hearing this dribble from FSA supports since this terrorist movement started - almost two years later Bashar is still president. Like it or not, that is the fact!
