BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:47 P.M.) – At least 58 people were killed in a horrific gas attack in the Idlib Governorate this morning. However, even before investigations could be conducted and for evidence to emerge, Federica Mogherini, the Italian politician High Representative of the European Union (EU) for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, condemned the Syrian government stating that the “Assad regime bears responsibility for ‘awful’ Syria ‘chemical’ attack.”

The immediate accusation from a high ranking EU official serves a dangerous precedent where public outcry can be made even before the truth surrounding the tragedy can emerge

Israeli President, Benjamin Netanyahu, joined in on the condemnation, as did Amnesty International.

Merely hours after the alleged chemical weapons attack in Khan Sheikhun, supposedly by the Syrian government, holes are beginning to emerge from opposition sources, discrediting the Al-Qaeda affiliated White Helmets claims.

For one, seen in the above picture, the White Helmets are handling the corpses of people without sufficient safety gear, most particularly with the masks mostly used , as well as no gloves. Although this may seem insignificant, understanding the nature of sarin gas that the opposition claim was used, only opens questions.

Within seconds of exposure to sarin, the affects of the gas begins to target the muscle and nervous system. There is an almost immediate release of the bowels and the bladder, and vomiting is induced. When sarin is used in a concentrated area, it has the likelihood of killing thousands of people. Yet, such a dangerous gas, and the White Helmets are treating bodies with little concern to their exposed skin. This has to raise questions.

It also raises the question why a “doctor” in a hospital full of victims of sarin gas has the time to tweet and make video calls. This will probably be dismissed and forgotten however.

It is known that about 250 people from Majdal and Khattab were kidnapped by Al-Qaeda terrorists last week. Local sources have claimed that many of those dead from the chemical weapons were those from Majdal and Khattab.

ALSO READ  Assassination kills foreign jihadist Emir in Idlib city

This would suggest that on the eve of upcoming peace negotiations, terrorist forces have once again created a false flag scenario. This bares resemblance to the Ghouta chemical weapons attack in 2013 where the Syrian Army was accused of using the weapons of mass destruction on the day that United Nations Weapon’s Inspectors arrived in Damascus.

Later, in a separate chemical weapon usage allegation, Carla del Ponte, a UN weapons inspector said that there was no evidence that the government had committed the atrocity. This had however not stopped the calls for intervention against the Syrian government, a hope that the militant forces wished to eventuate from their use of chemical weapons against civilians in Khan-al-Assal.

Therefore, it is completely unsurprising that Orient TV has already prepared a “media campaign” to cover the Russian and Syrian airstrikes in Hama countryside against terrorist forces, with the allegations that the airforces have been using chemical weapons. And most telling, there announcement of covering the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government, hours before this allegation even emerged…….. Seems like someone forgot to tell him that it would not occur for a few more hours before his tweet.

Meanwhile, pick up  trucks have been photographed around bodies of those killed. Again, it must be questioned why there are people around sarin gas without any protective gear, and not affected at all when it can begin attacking the body within seconds? Also, the pick up trucks remain consistent to what local sources have said that many of those dead were kidnapped by Al-Qaeda terrorists from pro-government towns in rural Hama.

ALSO READ  ISIL falls apart in northern Palmyra as Syrian Army troops liberate strategic gas fields

Also, what is brought into question is where the location of the hose is coming from in the below picture, a dugout carved into the rock. This also suggests that the location is at a White Helmets base where there are dug out hiding spots carved into the mountainside and where they have easy access to equipment, as highlighted by Twitter user Ian Grant.

In response to the allegations, the Syrian Arab Army soldiers in northern Hama denied the use of chemicals weapons today. This is consistent with the Russian Ministry of Defense who denied any involvement in the attack.

The army “has not and does not use them, not in the past and not in the future, because it does not have them in the first place,” a military source said.

And this of course begs the question. With the Syrian Army and its allies in a comfortable position in Syria, making advances across the country, and recovering lost points in rural Hama, why would they now resort to using chemical weapons? It is a very simple question with no clear answer. It defies any logic that on the eve of a Syria conference in Brussels and a week before peace negotiations are to resume, that the Syrian government would blatantly use chemical weapons. All evidence suggests this is another false chemical attack allegation made against the government as seen in the Khan-al-Assal 2013 attack where the terrorist groups hoped that former President Obama’s “red-line” would be crossed leading to US-intervention in Syria against the government.

Most telling however, is that most recent report shows that the government does not deny striking Khan Sheikhun. Al-Masdar’s Yusha Yuseef was informed by the Syrian Army that the air force targeted a missile factory in Khan Sheikoun, using Russian-manufactured Su-22 fighter jet to carry out the attack. Most importantly, the Su-22’s bombs are unique and cannot be filled with any chemical substances, which is different than bombs dropped from attack helicopters. Yuseef was then told that the Syrian Air Force did not know there were any chemical substances inside the missile factory in Khan Sheikhoun. It remains to be known whether there actually were chemicals in the missile factory targeted by the airstrikes, or whether the terrorist forces used gas on the kidnapped civilians from the pro-government towns and brought them in the lorry trucks to the site of the airstrikes. Whether they were gassed by the militant forces, or the airstrikes caused a chemical weapon factory to explode, the gruesome deaths of children, seen foaming in the mouth because of the gas, lays in the hands of the terrorists.

ALSO READ  In pictures: ISIS raids Al-Qaeda amid door-to-door combat inside south Damascus suburb

Therefore, it becomes evident that the area targeted was definitely a terrorist location, where it is known that the White Helmets share operation rooms with terrorist forces like Al-Qaeda as seen after the liberation of eastern Aleppo. Civilians and fighting forces, including Kurdish militias, have all claimed that militant groups that operate in Idlib, Hama and Aleppo countrysides, have used chemical weapons in the past. Therefore, before the war cries begin and the denouncement of the government from high officials in power positions begin, time must be given so that all evidence can emerge. However, this is an important factor that has never existed in the Syrian War, and the terrorist forces continue to hope that Western-intervention against the government will occur, at the cost of the lives of innocent civilians.

people believe anything. Sarin was the first “nerve agent” and is the weakest. It has a true half life of 12 hours, after which it breaks down due to contact to oxygen (a dead giveaway by the first two compounds in its name) and due to its breakdown the secondary toxicity drops well below the flower seeds it comes from which do not have contact toxicity

What is worrying is the knee jerk reaction. Certain powers in the West and the Mass media are too quick to point fingers and blame. Where is the evidence, we need to see CONCRETE, SOLID evidence.

Turkey, is uniquely placed to ask for an independent investigation into the chemical attack in the northwestern Syrian province of Idlib on April 4. Idlib borders Turkey and it is well-known fact that extremist groups (Al-Qaeda affiliates) controlling the province have enjoyed covert support from Turkish intelligence, which has trained them, equipped them and guided them in the past in a joint enterprise with the CIA and the US’ Gulf Arab allies. Yet, curiously, President Recep Erdogan shies away from demanding an independent inquiry. M.K Bhadrakumar has given a reason as to why Turkey is avoiding investigation in this attack.

What you say may well be correct; but I believe the weapons concerned are binary, in which case the chemicals stored are most likely methylphosphonyl difluoride and isopropyl alcohol. During flight to target these are mixed to form Sarin and Hydrogen Fluoride MPDF is very volatile with corrosive and some nerve agent properties. If it is aerosoled by a blast it will make people in the vicinity very sick but will quickly degrade, especially in the presence of water or salt Having said that, ISIS attempting to put Assad in the frame is my personal favourite – but the Russian… Read more »

@GMAN, IMHO binary. Because of its impurities. As You describe.

Shiblie J Zamansteen has correctly researched but he read not all thoroughly IMHO.

I absolutely agree. Cui bono. That rules out SAA as wining side. And that incriminates all that clamor for a no fly zone.

It’s been widely publicized by ‘witnesses’ on AJE that there was the sound of rockets followed by explosions followed by the ‘gas’. So if Sarin had been delivered by a rocket attack it would have been incinerated – as you pointed out. Sarin is not rendered inert at 150°C – it decomposes over 2.5 hours (as per the link you supplied). Sarin (that remained) being delivered by rockets would have a very localized effect – not matching the magnitude of those apparently affected. The most efficient delivery of a nerve gas would be by spraying at low altitude – which… Read more »

1.) Sarin is IMHO not stored in ammo ready. But as two components that are mixed at use by a special shell. Throw the shell out of the warehouse during an air raid… But I guess that would be more than one shell. 1b.) Incendiaries are banned in towns. How do You know they are used. 2.) No. Boiling Point 147 deg C at 760 mm Hg; So it will be there as liquid and because of the mass action law as gas over the liquid in the air. 2b.) Short lived does not mean minutes. Sarin has impurities and… Read more »

This guy uses the words “white helmets” The people in the photos do not look like UN Peace keepers, rather they look local, maybe whatever kind of emergency response that is there. To base a report on such observations is not journalism, it’s propaganda. They are doing what they can to try to help those people, probably their friends and neighbors. If it was someone you knew hurt on the ground, would you leave them to die because you don’t have the propper gear? Or would you try to make due with what you have? I’m guessing this author of… Read more »

i can’t believe you are all debating who is right? does that matter? is their a right and wrong in war? their is simply war? the children the babies they are the innocent vunrable pawns in all this rather then debating who is right …. if we all worked out how to get along and be kind to another, including within our own relationships maybe the energy of right and wrong, good and bad would evaporate. Bless those children who are at peace now, and out of this game of ego of who is right… who cares… just be kind… Read more »

OK, I will try to handle this remark

Ma’am*. We are debating who is wrong, not who is right. A dreadful action like this (assuming it is not all theatrics – and recycled images and video) requires a firm response – but if the guilt is wrongly apportioned then so will be the response.

If it is theatrics then it is shameful manipulation that will only add to the world’s burden of grief and pain and which serves a very dangerous agenda.

May God grant us wisdom and a clear eye in this matter.

*Forgive me if my guess is incorrect

Sorry, this pin point pupil from one of the victims proves that this IS a toxic gas attack. You can’t fake this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZTszOjAZNtI

The sarin will be there but toooo little and too few victims for an air attack with a sarin bomb.

So they exposed captives to Sarin. The White Helmets are terrorists.

I feel a Russian no fly zone coming with a full A2/AD system and not just a few S-300/400.

Better ban Turkey and Trump’s US. The US dumb talk of a red line created the idea to commit this crime. And Turk MIT supplied the chemicals.

Luckily, we just took action and dropped 57 bombs on Asad’s military base. Asad will run like a bitch.

59 bombs and only 23 reached their targets where they did extraordinarily minimal damage…… Seriously $120m to take out half a dozen old migs – and the canteen? They didn’t miss 6 soldiers and 9 CIVILIANS tho’. Oh how you Americans do love to kill! But going by Tillerson’s latest remarks (today he’s back on the “Syrians must decide about Asaad” bandwagon I’d say …. the Russians have just nipped that pending “we gonna bomb some more Syria for our INTERESTS” thingie right in the bud. Of course, it would be a nice added extra if they were to bomb… Read more »
