The Syrian rebels, in a rocket attack yesterday, killed more than 35 civilians in Damascus and wounded more than 20, the state media has reported. The government has pinned the blame on rebels that are widely referred to as ‘moderate’ in the global media and supported – both directly and indirectly – by US and its allies in Gulf.
Even though there was no wider coverage of the incident in the media, Syrians, among others, on twitter expressed their anger towards both the attacks as well as the rebels.

My thoughts are with the people of Damascus tonight after "moderate rebels" in eastern Ghouta bombed a market in the Kashkoul neighbourhood, killing more than 38 civilians.
Syria will triumph 🇸🇾 pic.twitter.com/iOm115cYuL

No news on BBC website at all on the 40 innocent Syrians killed by NATO backed 'moderate rebels'. I just hope that more & more ppl are waking up to the fact that 'moderate rebels' don't slaughter civilians in a market. Extremists do.
