(Zaman Al Wasl)- A decent number of Palestinian people and elites consider the likes of Bashar Al-Assad and slain Iranian General Qassem Soleimani as the saviors of the Israeli occupation and the salvation way to their return to the Holy Land.
No matter the arguments or facts, they seem to be unaware that the so-called Axis of Resistance are but cunning dealers of the Palestinian cause, with empty promises of liberation.
An introduction to an article published years ago by Zaman Al-Wasl, says, “Any Palestinian living in Syria, or even passing through it, is never safe from the hell of the Assad regime, whether during Hafez’s or Bashar’s reign. Indeed, the regime has placed the Palestinians as the focus of repression and torture from the early days of the Syrian revolution. Anyone who does not stand with the regime is considered a traitorous agent who should be killed, even if they chose to not interfere and stay neutral as refugees or ‘guests’.”
In that article, we published pictures of Palestinians who were killed in the Damascus “Palestine branch” under torture... The map of their homeland that was tattooed on their bodies out of love and loyalty, identified them as Palestinians in the pictures leaked by “Caesar”.
According to Action Group for Palestinians of Syria, since 2011, Al-Assad has killed more than 616 Palestinian refugees under torture in his prisons, with Tehran’s and Soleimani’s knowledge and watch.
AGPS statistics indicate that 1,780 Palestinian refugees have been secretly held behind Syria’s prison bars, among them 109 women and girls along with dozens of minors.
Any supporters of al-Assad and those who are grieving Soleimani should have a look at the photos of their fallen brothers who were killed in the prisons of the Axis of Resistance.
Soleimani, the former leader of Quds Force and all Shiite militias in Syria, was killed on Friday in a U.S. airstrike near Baghdad's airport along with top Shiite militants.
