'Western media outlets lie about Syria http://almoqawama.org/?a=content.id&id=27995
A senior Turkish lawmaker says Western media outlets are not reflecting the reality in Syria and the West is playing a game in the Arab country, Press TV reports.MP Birgul Ayman Guler, the deputy chairperson of Turkey's main opposition party, the Republican People's Party (CHP), who visited Syria about one month ago as part of a Turkish delegation comprised of 38 women, said on Tuesday that the reality in Syria is different from what Western media outlets are reporting. In an exclusive interview with Press TV's Ankara correspondent, Guler stated, “What we understood during the visit was that the Western media were lying about the situation in Syria.” “We were told [by the Western media] that there was bloodshed underway by the administration of [Syrian President Bashar] al-Assad, but we did not see any violence in Syria,” she added. Guler visited the cities of Alepo, Damascus, and Latakia during her four-day trip to Syria. She said that fighting was reported only in Hama and Homs, where Syrian government forces were engaged in clashes with groups that had launched attacks on government forces and civilians. “When we returned to Turkey, we shared the realities with the Turkish people, the media, and the international community,” the Turkish MP stated. Guler added that foreign elements, such as the United States and the European Union, are trying to implement a plot in Syria.
