MSM Journalism 101

"Five civilians and two soldiers were killed when rebels fired a barrage of rockets and mortar rounds at central Damascus, a monitoring group says. The rebel attacks came two days after they threatened to retaliate for air raids by the Syrian regime against an opposition-held area on the capital's edge." (Seven die in Damascus as rebels retaliate, AFP/The Australian, 27/1/15)

In Syria, government air raids always come first, whereas in Gaza, Palestinian rockets always come first.

Got it?
