U.N. Syria Observers Escape A Blast in Daraa
The BBC is also covering this story, but the SPIN is being applied so heavily, I couldn't use the story. Read it here if you wish.
An explosion has hit a Syrian military truck escorting a convoy of UN observers near the city of Daraa, Press reports abroad said on Wednesday.The explosion was more than 100 meters behind the UN convoy.
Press reports added that U.N. Syria Observer Chief accompanied by other monitors and a press reporters have escaped the blast unharmed as the explosion took place just seconds after the observers passed by.An Associated Press reporter who was traveling in the UN convoy said the explosion blew out the military truck's windows and caused a plume of thick, black smoke.The Associated Press said that A roadside bomb struck a Syrian military truck Wednesday, wounding six soldiers just seconds after a convoy carrying the head of the UN observer mission passed by.
How will this story be spun further?
The Syrian government is failing to ensure the safety of the UN observers. SPIN
Yet the convoy that was hit had military escort. The roadside bomb struck a military truck, wounding six soldiers, that was following behind the observers.
"We were driving behind the UN convoy as protection when a roadside bomb exploded, wounding a 1st Lieutenant and five troops," a soldier who asked to be identified only by his first name, Yahya, told The Associated Press at the scene.
Therefore: the problem still is, as it always has been, the NATO backed terrorists.
As reported: Syria's rebel leader, Col. Riad al-Assad, threatened to resume attacks because the government has not honoured a cease-fire, the London-based Asharq al-Awsat newspaper reported Wednesday.
The BBC is claiming "uncertainty" on who did the attacking....... Simply not credible. SPIN.
