From the album Syria from both sides

A correspondent for Syrian state television interviews a lady in the streets of Damascus, Syria. While smoke rises in the background from shelling they are asking Syrians which fruits and vegetables they prefer to save in the freezer from one season to the next. Syrian state TV channels have been blocked from two of the main satellite TV networks in the middle east Arabsat and Nilesat, reducing the ability of them to transmit the government version of events. The government says that the fighting was started from foreign agitation and funding, and consists mainly of foreign terrorists.
