The Left Party (die Linke) has been heavily criticizing the information policy of the German federal government in taking part with the propaganda war on Syria. The occasion was a parliamentary question to the Foreign Office about the Houla massacre of May 25 in Syria.

The agency was informed on several occasions during the period of 5 to 15 June regarding the matter.

The revelation was made public by the German government in response to a parliamentary question:

The West and the Syrian opposition together with their media blamed the Syrian government for the carnage, but a Syrian government-appointed fact-finding mission had said that armed groups had carried out the massacre to frame the government and foment sectarian strife.
