As part of a smear campaign conducted by Turkey to cover up its crime of incursion and occupation of our safe areas in the north and eastern Syria, media (intelligence) platforms affiliated with the Turkish occupation and its mercenaries have been publishing fake photos and videos of our forces.
On the anniversary of its occupation of Sri Kané /Ras al-Ain and Tal Abyad, the Turkish Defense Ministry posted onto its official Twitter account a promotional video of its terrorist operations against areas liberated earlier by our forces with the support of the international coalition from Turkish-backed Daesh. As part of widespread and systematic misinformation and immoral manipulation of media content, The Turkish ministry used footage of bombings by the Damascus government forces against Aleppo in 2016 and attributed it to our forces which indicate Turkish failure in justifying its terrorist incursions against our peaceful areas and people and its false accusations, depending on terrorism and the temptation of its mercenaries of the remnants of Daesh and al-Qaeda.
However, misinformation campaigns pursued by Turkey and its mercenaries will not discourage us from pursuing criminals, liberating our occupied areas, and enabling the return of displaced people. On this occasion, we call on social media and network websites, particularly Twitter and Facebook, to put an end to Turkish disinformation and to mark Turkish disinformation media and intelligence content in order to expose it to the public.
