Russia Has Indisputable Evidence Douma CW Incident Fakeby Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
Sergey Lavrov explained indisputable evidence proves the April 7 Douma CW incident was staged by special services of a foreign country.
The guilty one is either America, Britain, France, Israel, or perhaps elements from these countries working together.
Lavrov said the following:
“The mission of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has set off to Syria not so quickly and without abundant enthusiasm but under our and Syrian pressure. It is due to arrive in Damascus in the morning of April 14.”
“We expect the mission to go without any delay to Douma where Russian specialists who examined this place have not found any confirmations of the use of chemical weapon.”
“We have the irrefutable data that this (CW incident) was staged. (S)pecial services of a country, which is now seeking to be in the first ranks of the Russophobic campaign, were involved in this staged event.”
The incident was fake, no evidence of toxic substances found in Douma, no one ill or hospitalized from chemical exposure, no one dead.
Syria’s UN envoy Bashar al-Jaafari said US-supported terrorists “acquired chemical substances from Libya a long time ago from the Libyan stock.”
“This operation was facilitated by the Turkish intelligence, Saudi intelligence and the American and French intelligence services. They smuggled chemicals from Libya to Istanbul on board of civilian airlines and the guy who was in charge of transporting these substances was a guy named Haitham al-Qassar,” adding:
Damascus “denied maybe 1001 times similar to 1001 nights Arabian nights using any chemical substances against our own people.”
“And we provided all the necessary and required justifications for saying that. So it’s time to digest and metabolize what we are saying.”
Russian Defense Ministry spokesman General Igor Konashenkov slammed America and other Western countries for making “indiscriminate and unfounded accusations” against Syria, adding:
“The Russian Defense Ministry has plenty of evidence that on April 7, a planned provocation was carried out in Douma with the aim of misleading the world community.”
“The provocation’s real purpose today is clear to everyone – to prod the United States to launch missile strikes against Syria.”
Russia has clear evidence of Britain’s involvement in the scheme. Video and other images of the fake incident were staged.
“We managed to find direct participants in the shooting of this video and interview them. Today we are presenting a live interview of these people,” Konashenkov explained.
“Douma residents in detail told us how the filming was conducted, in what episodes they took part themselves and what they did.”
It was staged, not real, a transparent hoax exposed to the light of day. After the filming, individuals involved fled with foreign help.
Days leading up to the April 7 incident, “London put pressure on representatives of the so-called White Helmets group in order to facilitate the implementation of the provocation,” Konashenkov added.
East Ghouta is totally liberated, over 170,000 residents evacuated to safety, including around 63,000 US-supported terrorists and family members.
Syrian forces now control the enclave, things stabilizing so residents can return home if they wish.
“Russia…reserves the right to counter any attack on Syria,” RT reported.
