The Defection of General Manaf Tlas was just lies by the media to tie in with the Friends of Syria Meeting in Paris.
All day long they were saying he is on his way to Paris now. This went on all day in the media; how long do they think a flight from Turkey to Paris takes? If it were true don’t you think the media would have been at the airport when he arrived, mobbing him with questions like they were when Danny Boy arrived in London?
Anti-government activists Bassam Ju’ara confirmed that the defection of Manaf Tlas is false and it is only a trap that was made by the media , he added that he claimed information from Turkey that Tlas did not enter the Turkish borders, where Al-Arabia news Channel claimed that they have information about the defection of Gen. Manaf Tlas.
Another example of media lies.
