Syrian Rebels were Targeted in the Attack Against Tremesh

| No Comments

The U.N. investigation of the government attack on the town of Tremesh in Syria determined that the homes of rebels and activists were the main targets of the attack.

The attack was initially reported as a "massacre of civilians," the BBC News said, but the U.N. investigation revealed that the truth coincides more with the Syrian government's account than the rebels'.

Syria's government said the attack was a military operation, and the U.N. investigation determined that the attacks focus was on the rebels, not the civilians, BBC News said.

However, the number of deaths counted by the UN was reported at 220 and the government only reported 50 deaths, NPR News said.
