Just few hours after escaping Ghouta through the humanitarian corridors, the evacuated civilians started to tell their own stories of the years-long brutal siege by terrorist organizations positioned in Eastern Ghouta.
Citizens in Ghouta have watched with horror the true face of the terrorist organizations and experienced their takfiri agenda supported by foreign countries that these organizations are serving.
One of the civilians told SANA’s correspondent, “The terrorist organizations that have taken over Ghouta’s towns for years, have been clearly working for the benefit of foreign parties.
They, the terrorists, compelled civilians by force of arms to stay inside Ghouta to use them as human shields and to give the world a false impression that they have popular and mass support.”
Stories may differ but all of them share one fact that Ghouta residents suffered a lot. They were under the control of terrorists who prevented them from leaving and looted their food, humanitarian aid, and medicine and sold them to the vulnerable people in high prices.
A woman evacuated from Douma talked about her own experience, she said that all the humanitarian aids provided by the government and the Red Crescent to the civilians trapped in Ghouta used to be seized by the terrorist groups.
“We knew in advance that they will not distribute them and we will pay a high price for these materials so that our children would not starve,” she went to say.
60-year old man said that the terrorists also traded with their medicines and their medical materials sent by humanitarian organizations needed by civilians who were suffering mainly from chronic diseases.
Speaking from his personal experience, he said, “I wished to die because of the pain. I did not have money to get the medicine.”
Civilians who have been evacuated through the safe corridors were transferred to makeshift shelters equipped by the necessary food and medical requirements. They moved from horror to safety.
Another civilian described his feeling when he left Ghouta and crossed the corridor, “I felt a live,” calling on people in Ghouta to do their best to flee.
The truth will eventually reveal itself and another page of the story of the atrocities committed by the terrorist organization was opened up by testimonies of the survival from Ghouta, while the West was raising humanitarian slogans to protect the terrorist organizations poisoned in Ghouta.
