F abrication in BBC Panorama 'Saving Syria’s Children'
These are Analysis of the 30 September 2013 BBC Panorama documentary 'Saving Syria's Children' and related BBC News reports, contending that sequences filmed by BBC personnel and others at Atareb Hospital, Aleppo on 26 August 2013 purporting to show the aftermath of an incendiary bomb attack on a school in Urm Al-Kubra are largely, if not entirely, staged.
Its clear our Western News Media outlets had being lying about recent attacks in Syria agaisnt the Civilians as if those attacks were carried out by Assad and the Syrian Arab Army but its clear with this, it wasn't Assad nor the Syrian Arab Army who were doing it.
These attacks that occurred while BBC was there in Syria for the Panorama were completely fake, staged. The article clearer shows why.
I always did question the majority of those videos which are released by the opposition.
SOHR has been accused of selective reporting, covering only violent acts of the government forces against the opposition for the first two years of its existence. Although critics concede that its reports have become less partisan, critics interviewed by AsiaNews, the official press agency of the Roman Catholic Pontifical Institute for Foreign Missions, charge that as of 2013 SOHR "continues to defend Islamic extremists to avoid losing support among rebel forces".[
"Charlie Skeltom, in a 2012 opinion piece in The Guardian, questioned the wisdom of those who quote a source that amounts to nothing more than a lone clothes seller, living in Coventry, posing as an organisation with a "grandiose" name.
SOHR's methodology for counting civilian victims has been questioned by Patrick Henningsen on RT as the organisation includes opposition combatants among the number of civilian casualties, as long as these are not former members of the military.
RT has found SOHR's reporting to be inconsistent: on October 1, 2015, SOHR's English-language website reported "Russian warplanes killed 30 civilians in Homs including women and children"; the claim was reported by many major Western news outlets, like the British newspaper The Independent. Meanwhile, the Arabic-language version reported "27 civilians dead in airstrikes by Assad regime air forces", without mentioning Russian warplanes.
During a press conference in Moscow on October 22, 2015 Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova, dismissed the SOHR as lacking credibility and described director Rami Abdel Rahman as a British national "with neither a journalism degree nor a legal education... not even a secondary education" and no more reliable than "a waiter in a pizzeria.""

Wrote to bbc when this aired and got a response that basically said "From time to time we edit videos for clarity"
