This is real war correspondence. not like some CNN guys reporting from a distant, repeating what they're told.
Good work RT for really informing the world on what actually going on.

Free Thinkers on Facebook:
I have information read about the Christian Village in Syria/ Maaloulla, it is a historical village of +/-10,000/ thousands of years.
Unfortuna tely the primitive NATO/Zionism, Wahhabism Mercenaries read any History and understand no civilization.
Fr iends on Facebook:
In the village in Syria life Muslims and Christians for centuries in peace and harmony and they are the only in the world who speak the ancient Aramaic language, the language of Jesus Christ.
........ ............ Sad.
It does Younes much pain.

The haters of Christianity all lined up to destroy its ME roots. The Israelis, the rag-heads Muslims, and the liberal godless West.

The grocer from this clip, in Syria said "Syria is a land of history and of love. THEY sent terrorists from all corners of the globe to kill Syrians and each other. WHY?"

Let's also ask why.
