USA conducts Trojan horse operation with "fifth column" in Syria

Summary of Disinformation

This approach is part of the Pentagon’s new strategy of the “Trojan Horse”. It consists of an active use of the potential of “fifth column” protests in order to destabilise the situation, while hitting the most important sites in the country with high-precision weapons.
