The US and the UK ordered the use of chemical weapons in Syria

Summary of Disinformation

The Syrian government has always refused allegations that it used chemical weapons, while now there is proof that the American and British governments ordered terrorists in Eastern Ghouta to use chemical weapons and then accuse the Syrian government of committing those acts. The orders were given to the jihadists of Tahrir al-Sam, Fajlak al-Rahman and Ahrar al-Sam.
