Disinformation against Syria, Qatar and KSA Fund Israeli teams
The Palestinian Al-Manar daily revealed Saturday that staffs funded by Qatar and Saudi Arabia, with more than thirty experts of different American, European and Israeli nationalities, are carrying out media planning operations inside special studios in order to exaggerate the events in Syria and mislead international public opinion.
The daily said that an American expert in photography and media tricks arrived last week in New York after three months he spent traveling in Middle East countries between labs and studios of disinformation, which the paper described as the "media arm that works side by side with the intelligence and terrorist conspiracy apparatus against the Syrian people ".
The paper quoted the American expert as saying that “illustrations are produced using replicas and miniatures of certain neighborhoods in the capital Damascus, which were built with the help of photographs taken by very special advanced spy satellites using computerized programs of high level of accuracy and efficiency.”
“Seven strategic locations were built in Damascus, and more than 214 scenes on targeting those sites and taking control over them by armed opposition were filmed,” the newspaper added.
Al-Manar daily also quoted the expert as adding that “there are 32 experts working in those studios and labs in the countries surrounding Syria, including Lebanon and Turkey.”
“Intelligence teams determined the broadcasting hours,” he said.
It is worthy to mention that the disinformation Syria faces by the Arab and foreign satellite channels, have already been practiced with the Libyan regime before, when official websites published photos which coincided with some Arab satellite channels publishing photographs about the fall of Tripoli. The pictures showed fabrication of demonstrations scenes coming out in the Green City, and unfolded the manipulation during images’ installation.
