Western intelligence is assisting and supporting the White Helmets financially and logistically, with the aim of launching a media war against Syria.
Two years ago, information blaming the Syrian army and forces of the use of chemical weapons in the Syrian city of Douma was spread around the world, and this was a planned misinformation campaign supported by Western countries.
Investigations have proven that the White Helmets allegations about the use of chemical weapons were just a slander.
The (White Helmets) organization is funded by British intelligence services and is carrying out its tasks by disseminating information and allegations against Syria and its army.
This is a recurring disinformation narrative deflecting blame for chemical attacks away from the Assad regime; aiming to discredit the OPCW, in addition to label the White Helmets as terrorists or as accomplices with terrorist organizations by staging and/or perpetrating chemical attacks, sometimes with the help of Western intelligence agencies. These claims are not supported by evidence.
The UN-OPCW Joint Investigative Mechanism found Syria’s Government responsible for the April 2017 attack in Khan Shaykhun. On April 2018, Russia vetoed a US-drafted UN Security Council resolution that would have created a new inquiry to ascertain responsibility for chemical weapons attacks in Syria. In June 2018, the OPCW members granted it the power to assign responsibility for chemical attacks.
