Chemical weapon attacks in Syria are western provocations

Summary of Disinformation

Bashar al- Assad did not use chemical weapons and he did not deed it at all.

Father and daughter Skripals were double agents. The British government said that they had been ”poisoned” by Putin and ”died”, however it turns out that both feel wonderful, have no problems and nothing threatens them. Now, the British Special Services have decided to hide them. What is going on is shameful. How many times Russia should defeat the West? We all know why the West started this misfortune in Syria.

On April 10 Russia vetoed a U.S.-drafted U.N. Security Council resolution that would have created a new inquiry to ascertain blame for chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

Joint Investigative Mechanism found Syria’s Government responsible for last year’s attack in Khan Shaykhun.

In September 2017, the UN Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic summarized 33 separate incidents where it had found use of chemical weapons. Since then there have been several additional suspected chemical attacks. Between March 2013 and March 2017, the Commission documented 25 incidents of chemical weapons use in the Syrian Arab Republic, of which 20 were proven to have been perpetrated by government forces and used primarily against civilians.
