Well according to Syrian Arab News Agency, SAA were actually chasing armed extremist groups, who retreated to Palestinian Yarmouk camp in Damascus,
with intelligence claiming there is up to 3.500 well armed men, using the Yarmouk camp as a safe haven.
Reading between the lines, it seems certain media outlets are using the Palestinians plight as a propaganda sympathy vote from westerners, making out
Assad to be a out of control lunatic attacking them, when russian and Syrian media tell a completely different story.
It's like the chemical weapons story put out by the western media of Assad using or getting ready to use chemical weapons, which under further
investigation turn out to be a few SAA helicopters flushing out FSA rebels, what they did was load the helicopters with tons of flower and drop it
over the rebels enclaves, making the rebels panic, and run, exposing their positions and the rebels instantly claim it was chemicals to which a
Russian journalist embedded with the SAA witnessed the flower bombing to comfirm the story, but once the chemical weapons story was exposed as
rubbish, the western media dropped the story without telling what really happen.
It's not easy trying to get credible information from Syria, as all Syrian websites and news outlets are blocked in the west, you have to use Russian
sources to read between the lines.
