Assad loyalist taunts Aleppo’s love couple, ‘We're following you to Idlib’
A video circulated on the internet of an Assad loyalist mocking the couple who took a picture near a wall in eastern Aleppo
A video circulated on the internet of an Assad loyalist mocking the couple who took a picture near a wall in eastern Aleppo where they made a graffiti from a famous line from a Fairouz song ‘We’ll be back’, before leaving to Idlib, northwestern Syria.
The two pictures showed a young couple posing near a wall a day before the evacuation took place from rebel-held neighborhoods after Assad forces and loyalists recaptured the area.
One picture showed them standing near the wall where they wrote: “To who shared the siege with me, I love you. 12/15/2016.”
The other one shows the young man with his hands wrapped around his lover as she lays her head on his shoulder, near the wall that reads: “We’ll be back. 12/15/2016”
In the video published yesterday, an Assadist is seen in front of the same wall where he ridicules the couple, saying: “To who shared the siege with him, he loves you… (chuckles) well in the green buses we made you all leave. Where are you now? Aleppo is ours.”
In another clip he says: “You want to come back? To where? We're going to follow you to Idlib'
About 25,000 people evacuated eastern Aleppo, according to the International Committee of the Red Cross, which assisted in the process.
