Question: It has not been two weeks since the start of the fighting in Aleppo on 26/11/2016, when talks of withdrawal and evacuation of civilians and fighters began... and it has not been a week yet the evacuation of civilians and combatants and their families is nearly complete in the eastern part of Aleppo. “Reuters Beirut-Amman - Thousands gathered in a square in eastern Aleppo in Syria, waiting for the buses to take them out of areas under opposition control within the evacuation process, which the international Committee of the Red Cross is hoping to resume on Sunday... Residents said that an estimated 15 thousand people gathered in the main square in the neighborhood of Sukkari in Aleppo, they are mostly from the remaining civilians in the last pocket controlled by the opposition, they are mostly from the families of fighters and other civilians, as there are few fighters. Organizers gave each family a number to allow them to board the buses when it reaches... Reuters Arabic and International 18/12/2016”. What is the cause of this acceleration in the (surrendering) of east of Aleppo to the regime, although previous reports have been saying that Aleppo can resist the regime for a year at least? Is the reason being the weakness of the fighters, or a conspiracy by conspirators? Thank you.
Answer: Aleppo saw a brutal fierce attack that was managed and planned by America, with the implementation of Russia, Iran and followers and supporters. These attacks could overwhelm firm mountains but Aleppo resisted and withstood and inflicted harm and pain on those crowds, and it was able to continue this for a long time... But America’s order to Turkey to enter Aleppo and conspire with Russia and with the betrayal of the factions and the pressure on them to back down and of the repeated withdrawal is what created disorder and what looked like the "surrendering" of Aleppo. Turkey was assigned to carry out the American plan in coordination with the Russians to enable the regime from entering eastern Aleppo. Thus, the fall of Aleppo in the hands of the regime is not because of the power of the regime, but the plotting of conspirators according to an agreed plan between Russia and Turkey under the supervision of America. Putin has revealed this and did not cover up for his partner Erdogan, he exposed him publically at a press conference! Putin said at a press conference that what took place in Aleppo is a translation to his agreement with Erdogan during his visit to St. Petersburg: “The Russian President Vladimir Putin's detonated a political bomb when he revealed that the evacuation process of militants from eastern Aleppo was reached during the visit of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to Petersburg last August... The Russian president said at a joint press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Tokyo, on Friday night that Moscow agreed with Ankara on Turkey's contribution in evacuating those militants who agree to laying down their arms in order to protect civilians over all things. He added: "judging by what I see, what is happening is exactly what we agreed upon with the Turkish President during his visit to St. Petersburg..." (Elaf, 16/12/2016, Sputnik News, 16/12/2016).
I could have concluded the answer with Putin’s statement, but I will explain more how Aleppo, the pure Aleppo the champion, Aleppo the resistance, was stabbed and left to bleed by Turkey, which used to consider it as a red line... and it was also betrayed from those factions who ran away from the battle due to dependency on dirty money that was feeding them from the doors of those traitorous countries to Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saw) and believers. Therefore, I will explain this issue more:
First: The revolutionaries in and around Aleppo were never weak to the point that breaks them in a short period! In a period of nearly two-weeks starting from 26/11/2016 the regime forces and its allies entered Hanano neighborhood, the largest neighborhoods of the city of Aleppo, and it also captured As-Sakhoor followed by Ash-Sha’ar then the area around old Aleppo. The advancement of those forces was unexpectedly easy, they were unable to penetrate the resistance if it wasn’t for Erdogan’s intervention. After a two-day break for the regime, forces advanced on the southern area of the city; they captured the Sheikh Saeed neighborhood, and it was progressing during that period with a frenzied campaign from air and land without taking into account any sanctity for civilian blood or demolition of houses, and burning them. Massacres rampant and campaigns of intimidation. All this was intended to strike terror in the hearts of the fighters who have refused to leave Aleppo, so as to force them to rapidly get out of the city... and since the beginning of the military campaign on Aleppo, Turkey was moving with Russia frantically on the Syrian arena. BBC reported on 2/12/2016: “Mevlut Cavusoglu said that Turkey is consulting with Russia and Iran, Assad’s allies and with Syria and Lebanon also in order to reach a solution to the Syrian crisis. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan discussed the Syrian issue by telephone with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin three times in the past week at least, while Cavusoglu met with the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Turkey on Thursday to discuss the same topic.” These moves were to carry out the bloody massacre in Aleppo, step by step, after its details were drawn with Washington, and so the Turkish and Russian parties and their accessories rushed for its implementation.
Second: Turkish officials during the period that preceded the implementation were making strange statements and unusual than ever before about the expulsion of "terrorists" from Aleppo. “The Turkish Foreign Minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, called for the stop of the clashes in Aleppo, in northern Syria, and called for the exit of Fatah Ash-Sham Front – An-Nusra Front formerly- out of Aleppo immediately...” (Al Jazeera Net, 27/10/2016) That was after the Lausanne meeting led by America regarding Syria, and in that period America was preparing the field with the Turkish player side and the most sensitive. The next day the Turkish rhetoric increased significantly. Etihad Press reported on17/10/2016: “The Turkish Foreign Minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, said, "Aleppo must be cleansed from terrorists of the Nusra (Front) immediately, and the Syrian opposition must separate from them". This was one day after the meeting, which brought together the foreign ministers of Russia and America, Iran, Iraq, Egypt, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Jordan, in addition to the UN envoy to Syria, Staffan de Mistura, in the Swiss city of Lausanne. This is the first position of its kind from Turkey towards the Nusra Front which is classified as a terrorist organization by the United Nations.” As for the agreement between Russia and Turkey, Turk press reported early on 31/10/2016 citing “the Yeni Safak Turkish newspaper" from unidentified sources that an understanding has been reached between Turkey and Russia, according to the new Russian-Turkish project it will restore the situation in each of Aleppo, Latakia’s country side, Idlib, Hasaka, Deir Az-Zor, and Raqqa to what it was before the start of the Syrian war, while taking into account the demographic structure of these regions. And then Turkey-Erdogan rushed in very quick steps and close coordination with Russia to implement the terms "surrendering" of Aleppo agreement!
Third: America hid briefly behind the scenes, and Erdogan appeared in the limelight on the Syrian theater, simultaneously with the start of the offensive on Aleppo, Turkey announced, and instantly negotiations taking place between the criminal Russians and the negotiating opposition delegation which was attended by Ahrar Ash-Sham and the Army of the Mujahideen and Failaq Ash-Sham factions of Ash-Sham Front... (Turk Press, 8/12/2016). This delegation signed into the trap of Erdogan, which was prepared in Washington, these negotiations are the window that Russia and Erdogan can hurl shocks from in the Aleppo scene. Russia demanded the exit of Fatah Al-Sham from Aleppo, and that was at the beginning of the ground battles in Aleppo, and although it is a Russian demand declared a long time ago, but its proposal in Ankara and in the presence of Turkish officials and sponsorship has brought a strong message to the armed opposition that Turkey wants to split them from the "terrorists!" The negotiations continued during the massacres and intimidation in Aleppo, then Russia demanded the next day the exit of all combatants from Aleppo, and when the negotiators from the armed opposition realized that this Russian demand is also a Turkish demand, they pressured the opposition in Aleppo to withdraw and leave, namely to hand over the city to the regime and its allies, and then it became clear that the negotiating team in Ankara representing the armed opposition is what spews toxins inside Aleppo during the intimidation carried out by Russia, Iran and the regime by land and air... when this became clear the revolutionaries inside the city of Aleppo told the negotiating team that they will not withdraw from the city and they will defend it, and they announced the establishment of the Army of Aleppo.
Fourth: Russia began broadcasting news revealing that some of the revolutionaries have bowed to the Turkish pressure, especially since their military and political leaders were the ones negotiating with Russia and Turkey in Ankara. Russia Today channel reported on 16/12/2016: "Rodsqui mentioned that nearly 3,500 of the moderate opposition militants laid down their arms and surrendered, and an amnesty was given to three thousand of them," Russia reported such news during the battles... That is, it was an early exit from the city by the elements loyal to Turkey and of surrendering of neighborhoods under their control to the Syrian army and its allies, and the same was for the Kurdish factions allied with the regime. Thus those factions responded to the Turkish forsaking, and bowed to the direct Turkish pressure or through the negotiating delegation or through military and political leaders that have a base in Turkey, which is engrossed in dirty poisoned money offered by Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and others, and when those factions abandoned fighting in Aleppo, whether they left it scenes of "surrendering" themselves to the (Syrian) army with Turkish guarantees, or withdrawing from behind in scene of defeat and forsaking the remainder of the factions especially in south of Aleppo, the "surrendering" of Aleppo process has already occurred. Were it not for these scenes the criminal Syrian army would not have been able to rapidly control Aleppo, the castle of the revolution in northern Syria and major thorn in America’s throat, the military estimates showed the ability of resistance in Aleppo to withstand a full year. As well as what was reported by Asia News 7/12/2016, “the opposition pages reported leaks about its leaders, described it as "treason against the revolutionaries.” It confirmed news of some leaders of armed factions in Aleppo conducting talks with Washington to surrender and evacuate the whole city, starting from Wednesday morning, they called it on their pages as a "US Russian agreement that forced leaders to surrender Aleppo to the Syrian government and Iran," in their words).
Fifth: On the military side and parallel to the frenzied campaign in Aleppo, Turkey was launching another campaign in Al-Bab city against ISIS, which is the other poison spewed by Erdogan to complete the surrendering of Aleppo, because this way he finds the justification and the need to speed up the exit of the fighters from Aleppo because he needs them in the city Al-Bab, this is in conjunction with the frenzied campaign against Aleppo. The protection of Muslims in Aleppo and their defense is not worth anything in the eyes of the Turkish President Erdogan, but he is keen to implement the American projects, and he is unconcerned regarding the consequences of this in the world and the Hereafter... and with the severity of the Turkish forsaking of the factions loyal to it, and intense pressure to make them join the battle of Al-Bab in the Operation Euphrates Shield this resulted in weakening Aleppo. This forsaking have peaked on 08/12/2016 with defender fighters of Sheikh Said neighborhood south of the city, this neighborhood, which the army and its allies have not been able to progress in, they were stopped by the revolutionary fighters over the past two weeks... but some factions loyal to Turkey withdrew under the pretext of fighting in Al-Bab, which confused and weakened that front.
This narrowed down the remaining districts under the control of the revolutionaries and made them recede to the south-west parts of Salahuddin and Sukkary in a narrow space after it was jammed with large numbers of civilians fleeing from other neighborhoods. Here with a shock that not is less frightening, Turkey announced that it reached an agreement with Russia for the evacuation of militants and civilians from Aleppo. “Sources in the Syrian opposition confirmed that it was agreed with the Assad regime on the ceasefire and the evacuation of the besieged neighborhoods in the east of Aleppo, civilians and militants, and that implementation will begin on Wednesday morning. AFP news agency quoted an official in charge of the group Noureddine Zinki as saying that the agreement was reached under the sponsorship of Russia and Turkey, and will be applied in the coming hours. The Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu announced today that his country would step up its contacts with Russia to reach a cease-fire in Aleppo, especially to allow civilians to leave...” (Now News, 13/12/2016). Part of the horror of this shocking scene that it was announced at the beginning that the implementation will be very fast, between five and seven o'clock in the morning, and it was intended that the feelings of defeat overwhelms in a shocking and stops them from thinking of any other option... All this is packaged by Turkey as it is for the need to save civilians!
Sixth: The armed factions loyal to Turkey began to withdraw from Aleppo in a scene of betrayal, not acceptable by any Muslim. Russia boasted with this (the Russian General Staff, announced on Friday, 16th December the completion of the process of separating the moderate opposition from the terrorists in eastern Aleppo) Earlier on Friday, the Russian coordination for reconciliation in Syria center, Humaimim announced the end of the evacuation operations of militants and their families from the east of Aleppo. The Russian Defense Ministry said that the Syrian army destroys extremists’ pockets in eastern Aleppo... (Russia Today, 16/12/2016) The size of the Turkish plot against the Syrian revolution started to get clearer; factions loyal to Turkey were taken out, they left behind the people of Aleppo with a small number of sincere fighters. So they can easily get singled out by Russia, Iran and the regime and be able to wipe them out because they are "terrorists" according to the above-mentioned statements by the Turkish Foreign Minister as well as the statement of the Russian Humaimim center...
Faced with this explicit Russian announcement of trapping a class of fighters in the corner as a prelude to their capture or wiping them out without any regard for the large number of civilians who remained stuck with them in that corner, Turkey announced that the evacuation operations are ongoing, despite their halt, because it has become in a very awkward position in front of the armed factions loyal to it, which were taken out in a hurry from Aleppo. Those factions which agreed to withdraw within a comprehensive evacuation process for all, now find themselves in a trap set by Turkey-Erdogan, to implement the aspirations of the United States and Russia, which they call the separation of the moderate opposition from the "terrorists"... and so a new reality in Aleppo was created, which makes targeting the sincere revolutionaries easy. America and Russia, as well as Erdogan boasted about the success of the US plan, and it was announced that there will be a transfer of the scene of events to a remote place, to Astana, capital of Kazakhstan!
Seventh: The United States, though it is hidden behind the scenes for the purpose required by the narrow remaining term of the Obama administration, and it is reassured by the presence of the Turkish player which proved its unwavering loyalty, despite that it was never been far from the scene, it poked out its head to show its great joy:
-The Turkish President Tayep Erdogan said he discussed the situation in Syria and Iraq with the US President Barack Obama in a telephone conversation on Thursday. Erdogan said that Turkey would continue to monitor the evacuation of civilians from Aleppo. (Reuters, 15/12/2016).
-President Obama thanked President Erdogan for his country's efforts in brokering the cease-fire in Aleppo to allow the safe evacuation of the opposition and civilians. (US State Department site Twitter, 16/12/2016).
-The statement by the US Secretary of State on 15/12/2016 about the process of evacuation from Aleppo, shows the level of American satisfaction with this result, which was a big dream for them in the "conciliatory break" it carried out by blood or what preceded it in the past years, and Kerry’s statement: “What we want in Aleppo currently and before continuing the progress is the immediate and permanent cessation of hostilities, the negotiations are the only way to end the war, the opposition expressed their desire to return to negotiations...” (US State Department site Twitter, 16/12/2016)
-Al Qabas learned from high-level official sources that attended part of the meeting, which took place last Saturday in Paris at the level of foreign ministers about the situation in Aleppo, and the whole of Syria, that what the US Secretary of State John Kerry said during the meeting “was inevitably calling the Syrian political and armed opposition to fully surrender to Russia, Iran and Bashar Al-Assad.” A source said in an exclusive statements to Al-Qabas that Kerry demanded during the meeting of taking all the fighters out of Aleppo, and he was pushing the Syrian opposition to go to the negotiating table in Geneva without any limitation or condition... The source added that the participants were hit with a kind of shock when they asked about possible options to be adopted to put pressure on Assad and his allies, Kerry replied without equivocation, “my president – i.e. President Obama - decided to go to war to fight “Daesh” (ISIS) only...” (Qabas Newspaper website, 13/12/2016)
Eighth: This is a bloody theater and those were their tools. This is what the President of Turkey, Erdogan, did after he no longer valued the blood of Muslims in Syria, for America’s pleasure, and the waterfalls of blood that was shed in Aleppo, and massacres... All these toxins breathed into the body of the city of Aleppo due to the dirty money that the factional leaders received from Turkey, Saudi Arabia and others, so they were made to bow down, and emptied of their resolve, whilst before that they claimed that they will not sell the people and the blood. Today they roam around in the slave markets in Turkey and Saudi Arabia after the first part of the sale transaction is completed, with its devastating consequences, will anyone take heed? Is there anyone who does not see that the acceptance of political money is real suicide?
The remaining scenes from the play of Aleppo after the end of the American "conciliatory break" is no less humiliating and disgraceful for what preceded it, those left with any modesty are asked to remove it in Astana, capital of Kazakhstan. Churkin, Russia's representative to the United Nations said that the primary mission in Syria, after the liberation of Aleppo, is represented by the "full cessation of hostilities and resumption of negotiations between the Syrian parties." (Russia Today, 16/12/2016). Putin had announced before that according to Russia Today 15/12/2016 that he agreed with Erdogan to submit an offer to the Syrian regime and representatives of the armed factions for the negotiations. Turk-Press reported 16/12/2016: “The Russian President Vladimir Putin said that he will meet with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in the capital of Kazakhstan, Astana, to discuss the ceasefire in Syria. Putin said in a statement before his departure to Japan, that there will be an implementation of the Geneva negotiations agreements on Syria that was brokered by the United Nations. The Russian president pointed out that the next step would be a cease-fire all over Syria. Putin revealed that he agreed with the Turkish President to make an offer for the parties of the conflict in Syria to start new negotiations. The Russian President added that he had made intensive efforts with his Turkish counterpart for the completion and achievement of a cease-fire in the city of Aleppo, and facilitates the evacuation process of those trapped.”
This way, the surrendering and installation of the Assad’s regime after it was restored, is what Turkey’s Erdogan is leading the armed opposition factions to, in its own segment within the US plan, and if the rooms of sincerity in the hearts of the factional leaders are emptied out. Then they will be going to Astana, capital of Kazakhstan to put Syria and themselves on the gallows for a cheap price, but if there is room for sincerity in them, they should immediately jump out from Erdogan’s ship and sincerely join the people before they reject them, which started already. The sincere ones in those factions must bring their leaders back to the track or change them. How can the Ummah’s revolution be sold by the factions’ leaders for a few million dollars to their enemy, Russia and America?! Just like that, without feeling shame from Allah and His Messenger and the believers! As for the people of Syria, Allah sent these tribulations for them, to distinguish the good from the bad in the best area of the Muslims: the Abode of Islam.
﴿لِيَمِيزَ اللَّهُ الْخَبِيثَ مِنَ الطَّيِّبِ وَيَجْعَلَ الْخَبِيثَ بَعْضَهُ عَلَى بَعْضٍ فَيَرْكُمَهُ جَمِيعًا فَيَجْعَلَهُ فِي جَهَنَّمَ أُولَئِكَ هُمُ الْخَاسِرُونَ﴾
“[This is] so that Allah may distinguish the wicked from the good and place the wicked some of them upon others and heap them all together and put them into Hell. It is those who are the losers.” [Al-Anfal: 37]
Ninth: And last but not least, we remind Erdogan and each one who conspired against Aleppo and contributed to its surrender and the forsaking of the fighters to appease the enemies of Allah and His Messenger (saw). We remind them of the Hadeeth of the Messenger of Allah (saw) which is narrated by Ibn Habban in his Saheeh from Al-Qassim, on the authority of Aisha, the Mother of the Believers may Allah be pleased with her, that the Messenger of Allah (saw), said:
«مَنْ أَرْضَى اللَّهَ بِسَخَطِ النَّاسِ كَفَاهُ اللَّهُ، وَمَنْ أَسْخَطَ اللَّهَ بِرِضَا النَّاسِ وَكَلَهُ اللَّهُ إِلَى النَّاسِ»
“Whosoever pleases Allah in the displeasure of people, Allah is his protector, and whosoever displeases Allah in the pleasure of people, Allah will leave him to the people’s protection”
Did he not see and hear how people are talking about him with anger? And even his friend Putin did not cover up for him, but he exposed him publically at a press conference! There is nothing wrong to repeat what we have said at the beginning:
“Russian President Vladimir Putin detonated a political bomb when he revealed that the evacuation process of militants from eastern Aleppo was reached during the visit of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to Petersburg last August... The Russian president said at a joint press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Tokyo, on Friday night that Moscow agreed with Ankara on Turkey's contribution in evacuating those militants who agree to laying down their arms in order to protect civilians over all things. He added: "judging by what I see, what is happening is exactly what we agreed upon with the Turkish President during his visit to St. Petersburg...") (Elaf, 16/12/2016, Sputnik News, 16/12/2016).
This is on top of the severe punishment prepared for them by Allah for committing crimes against the Ummah of Islam, or contributed to the forsaking of the land of Islam.
﴿سَيُصِيبُ الَّذِينَ أَجْرَمُوا صَغَارٌ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ وَعَذَابٌ شَدِيدٌ بِمَا كَانُوا يَمْكُرُونَ﴾
“There will afflict those who committed crimes debasement before Allah and severe punishment for what they used to conspire” [Al-An’am: 124]
As for the wicked ones, I repeat for them what we have already said: With all this, however much Aleppo is hit with destruction, it will rise again, and the whole land of Ash-Sham and Aleppo in particular will remain a poisoned dagger in the throats of America, Russia, their followers and supporters. It will give them sleepless nights and kill them due to their crimes. They will not enjoy the victory they claim, if they are not able to enter a country only after it is destroyed, and then it is an imaginary victory. And if they defeat a fighter only after his martyrdom, it is a defeated victory. And if they gather the devastating rockets and explosive barrels and armies of hundreds or a few thousand, but cannot meet them (fighters) except by air launchers and warships, this is a victory of the coward, terrified of meeting men, the real men, such a victory will not last. The United States, Russia and their alliances and followers want to repeat their monstrous crimes following their fellow brothers, the Crusaders, the Mongols, and the Tartars, in their crimes in Iraq and Ash-Sham, but they did not take heed from their fate. They were uprooted by the Muslims from their country and the Muslims rose again, and brought back the glory of Islam and Muslims, and their Khilafah was strengthened and they opened the city of Hercules which became the city of Islam, "Istanbul," and they advanced near Moscow and knocked on the gates of Vienna, and the days will see the change and tomorrow is close to the one awaiting it.
﴿وَسَيَعْلَمُ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا أَيَّ مُنْقَلَبٍ يَنْقَلِبُونَ﴾
