Baby Omran became the poster child of suffering in Syria due to extensive coverage by Western corporate media, including a CNN anchor who broke down in tears. Mint Press News
obtained an exclusive interview with Omran's father, who says the photo
was used as pro-war propaganda by Syrian rebels, the White Helmets and
the Western corporate media.
Mahmoud Raslan, the photographer responsible for the viral photo of
Omran, is known to be close to terrorists of the Nour al-Din al-Zenki
faction, who are most widely known for their methodic beheading of
Palestinian child Abdullah Issa in July 2016. After Issa’s slaughter,
photos emerged of a grinning Raslan taking a selfie with some of the
al-Zenki murderers. #Syria By Eva Karene Bartlett
Mohammad Daqneesh displays a photo of his 11-year-old son, Mohammad Ali,
who died due to injuries sustained the same day that Omran, known as
the Aleppo boy, was mildly wounded, a fact the much of the media missed.
