The evacuation of injured and sick civilians from pro-government enclaves in Idlib provnice has met a terrible but predictable setback: Some buses sent to evacuate civilians have been torched by "moderate" rebels.

Earlier, rebels had fired on buses and blocked roads leading out of Aleppo. It seems that even the BBC can't spin this one:

Several buses en route to evacuate the sick and injured from two government-held villages in Syria's Idlib province have been burned by rebels.


The convoy was travelling to Foah and Kefraya, besieged by rebel fighters.

Pro-government forces are demanding people be allowed to leave the mainly Shia villages in order for the evacuation of east Aleppo to restart.

Unlike with the alleged Assad atrocities in Aleppo, Twitter has already blown up with photographs and video evidence of the attack:

And a video:

Meanwhile, your American friends on Facebook who identify as non-binary trans-curious pansexuals demand a direct NATO intervention to prevent Al Nusra from losing East Aleppo. Yes, #PrayforAleppo might be the most upside down garbage hashtag in Twitter history, which is really saying something.

Remember: It's a "post-truth" age. These buses would have probably been used to evacuate sarin gas and Russian hackers. Hail Nusra!
