Summary of Disinformation

The fighters have been running East Aleppo as a quasi Sharia state, receiving support from the Western countries, Turkey and Saudi Arabia.

Disproof

The local councils and all directorates in Aleppo, including the Local Council of Aleppo Governorate, are exclusively civil, vetted and financed by the West. No member of the military groups has any presence or decision-making power within the council or the directorates. Members are all civilians, selected without any interference from the armed groups. There is no cooperation between the competing “Islamic Directorate of Services” and the local council or any of its institutions. Brita Hagi Hasan, the President of the Local Council of East Aleppo has been shortlisted for the 2016 World Mayor Prize http://bit.ly/2gahRVy
