Missile strikes against Syria based on fabrications, West will ignore new evidence

Summary of Disinformation

US and EU politicians, who authorised strikes on Syria over false evidence, will try to avoid responsibility.

Over the past few years, the Russian Defence Ministry has repeatedly stressed that sooner or later, the truth about these fabrications of Western countries would make its way to the light. And many current high-level policymakers in the United States and Europe, who then called for the ‘protection of peaceful Syrians from the regime’s terrible chemical attacks’ and authorised missile and air strikes on Syria, will try to ‘forget’ this issue to avoid moral, political and criminal responsibility.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation on Douma. The new round of disinformation was launched after Intercept published a new article about the Douma attack. The article states: "At least one chemical attack did take place in Douma on April 7, and people died as a result."

RT's anchor admits himself in the last seconds of the report: "We don't know what evidence the BBC producer has". A BBC spokesperson said to RT that the views expressed on Twitter are those of Riam Dalati alone.

The Interim report of the OPCW fact-finding mission in Syria regarding the incident of alleged use of toxic chemicals as a weapon in Douma, it is stated: "Various chlorinated organic chemicals were found in samples from Locations 2 and 4, along with residues of explosive" (p. 2).

See our reporting and Bellingcat coverage how Russian and Syrian state media has used fiction movies to "prove" the Douma attacks were staged.
