‘No Attack, No Victims, No Chemical Weapons’: Douma Witnesses Testify to OPCW in The Hague

Multiple witnesses testify in the Hague how the White Helmets video was staged and used as a pretext for a US-led strike on Syria.


This week, both Syria and Russia presented witnesses to Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in in The Hague, Netherlands.

Multiple witness and participants in the White Helmets video testified of a ‘staged’ gas attack in the Syrian town of Douma, as well as how the online video productions supplied to western governments and media were part of the same “provocation” that Moscow had warned about in advance.

AP reports that Russia’s Permanent Representative to the OPCW, Alexander Shulgin, described the social media ‘evidence’ used by Washington, London and Paris for the alleged ‘chemical attack’ as a “a sloppily staged video” shot by a pseudo-humanitarian organization in a bid to “touch hearts,” adding that the same strategy had been used in previous false flag attacks in Syria.

Witnesses of the alleged chemical attack in Douma, including 11-year-old Hassan Diab and multiple hospital staff who were present at the staged event, all of whom described to reporters and officials at The Hague that the White Helmets video used as a pretext for a US-led strike on Syria was, in fact, staged.
