Syria ‘chemical attack’ staged to provoke US airstrike, London pushed perpetrators

Summary

There is proof that the reported chemical weapons attack in Syria was staged and of the British government of pressuring the perpetrators to speed up the “provocation.”

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.

The White Helmets were ordered by the British government to fake a chemical attack, as proved by video

As proven by video, the White Helmets were ordered by the British government to fake a chemical attack in Douma. The segment shows a number of images acquired by Russia-1’s Vesti news programme from a White Helmets film set, with signs of White Helmet involvement in fakery.

Disproof

No evidence given. As shown by Bellingcat, these allegations were recently covered by the Vesti program on Russian state television channel Russia-1, claiming to show photographs of a White Helmets film set in East Ghouta. Actually, the images shown as "a proof of White Helmets faking pictures" are taken by Vesti itself from the Facebook page of the film Revolution Man.

This is not the first time that Russian state TV uses images from productions and claim it is reality euvsdisinfo.eu/computer-game-as-irrefutable-proof/, , euvsdisinfo.eu/oops-we-did-it-again/,

The missile attack on Syria was launched to obstruct the work of the OPCW inspectors

The strikes from US, UK and France were intended to destroy evidence and prevent the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) from performing its duties.

Disproof

No evidence given. The latest chemical attack in Douma, Syria, has been accompanied by a massive disinformation campaign from pro-Kremlin outlets euvsdisinfo.eu/how-to-make-500-victims-of-a-suspected-chemical-attack-disappear/,

Meanwhile, the fact-finding mission of the OPCW continues it's deployment to Syria www.opcw.org/news/article/opcw-fact-finding-mission-continues-deployment-to-syria/, For more information see www.theguardian.com/world/2018/apr/17/syria-russia-says-inspectors-will-be-allowed-into-douma,

Skripal poisoning was provocation by the US

It is clear for any normal person that British Prime Minister Theresa May’s hysterics and call for the EU – hurry up, express solidarity and expel Russian diplomats – was a well-staged provocation, the scenario of which with a high probability was written in Washington

Disproof

Many competing and contradictory stories promulgated by Russian state-controlled media, the only connecting thread being to confuse their audience and exclude any possibility of Russian involvement https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=sergei+skripal&disinfo_issue=&date=

The nerve agent has been identified as Novichok (which means newcomer in Russian). It is known to be more powerful than VX and was developed in Russia in the 1970s and 1980s https://www.voanews.com/a/british-prime-minister-russia-poisoning-spy/4294683.html It's so unusual, that very few scientists outside of Russia have any real experience in dealing with it and no country outside of Russia is known to have developed the substance https://edition.cnn.com/2018/03/13/europe/what-is-novichok-nerve-agent-intl/index.html, https://theconversation.com/what-we-know-about-novichok-the-newby-nerve-agents-linked-to-russia-93264
