MSM Silent on Civilian Suffering During Anti-ISIS Operation in Mosul
Iraqi forces, backed by the U.S.-led coalition, are pushing deeper into the densely-populated areas of western Mosul, to rid the city from Islamic State. The UN says more than 150-thousand residents have fled, as the latest anti-terror offensive goes into its second month. However, the plight of civilians in the bitter struggle to repel the terrorists, seems to be going noticeably under-reported in much of the mainstream media.
There's a double standard in news reporting when it comes to the military operation in Mosul vs the operation to liberate Aleppo. Western media are largely an arm of their corrupted Governments and the intelligence agencies, hell bent on regime change and unnecessary war.
