What is the story of the video of ‘violent clashes’ in Lattakia by Ansar Makhlouf?


The World – Syria

In the video, lights of a city or village appear at night, with bursts heard from different places, suggesting clashes and gunfire, and you also hear praises from a mosque.

And the video spread on the communication sites, between Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, as a clash between the Syrian army and Rami Makhlouf’s gunmen on the other hand.

The fact-finding team at the French agency “France Press” found that the rumor-mongers exploited two videos posted by businessman Rami Makhlouf on his personal account on Facebook, one of whom accused the security services of arresting his company employees.

The team confirmed, through tweets to Twitter users, that this video was taken many years ago and is only part of it, and has nothing to do with the recent developments in Syria between Assad and Makhlouf.

On the YouTube website, the opposition “Sham Network” published, in the summer of 2012, this video, entitled “Sham Damascus as Farsousa, sounds very heavy gunfire and explosions shaking the neighborhood on August 8 2012.”

Where the French agency reported violent clashes between “opposition fighters” and the Syrian army in the neighborhoods of southern and western Damascus.
