The White Helmets cooperate with al-Qaeda, prepares new chemical attack

Russia has proof that the White Helmets framed President Assad for the recent chemical weapon attacks in Syria, furthermore, they are planning on committing and filming another attack. The White Helmets are cooperating with al-Qaeda.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about the White Helmets.

Earlier, pro-Kremlin disinformation has claimed that both the 2017 attack in Khan Sheikhoun and 2018 in Douma were faked. UN-OPCW Joint Investigative Mechanism found Syria’s Government responsible for last year’s attack in Khan Shaykhun. On April 10 2018 Russia vetoed a U.S.-drafted U.N. Security Council resolution that would have created a new inquiry to ascertain responsibility for chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

Disproof

See how “concentration camps” are frequently used in pro-Kremlin disinformation https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=concentration+camp&disinfo_issue=&date=
