Disinfo: The Syrian White Helmets are working only when TV teams are present

Summary

The Syrian White Helmets are working only when there is a camera crew around. They also have ties to terrorists, they are looting and even killing the victims of bombing raids.

Disproof

No evidence given. Furthermore, The White Helmets are the only independent observers present in the part of Syria where Russia is fighting alongside Assad. Russia has consistently tried to compromise the NGO with accusations. The NGO is widely respected and recently received the Right Livelihood Award of 2016

Spontaneous celebrations took place in Aleppo after the defeat of the terrorists

Spontaneous celebrations took place in Aleppo after terrorists, supported by the Western powers, were defeated and the city was freed, as shown by video footage. The video is in opposition to claims by mainstream media which only report the suffering in Aleppo.

Disproof

It is unclear - and unlikely - that the video was taken in Aleppo. Moreover, the video was made by Iranian Press TV, which is dubious. Iran is directly engaged in Syria on the side of Bashar al Assad's regime and its media are not independent
