US freezes funding for White Helmets due to their role in the chemical attack in Douma

Summary of Disinformation

Witnesses confirmed that the White Helmets organised the Douma chemical attacks, and then the US froze funding to the White Helmets. In fact,  witnesses gave their testimony at the Hague confirming that there was no chemical attack. The White Helmets supported terrorist groups on numerous occasions, which also played a role in the US freezing funding for them.


The announced freeze of funding for Syria (including the White Helmets) was announced before the Douma attack www.nytimes.com/2018/03/30/world/middleeast/syria-us-coalition-deaths.html, .
