7 April from 3.42 to 3.56 Moscow time from the waters of the Mediterranean Sea near the island of Crete from two destroyers of the US Navy (Ross and Porter) was hit with a massive 59 missile with Tohmakhk cruise missiles at the Syrian air base Ashe Shayrat in Homs province.
The reason for this act of aggression, grossly violating international law, was the fact that, according to Washington, from this 4 air base on April 2017, Syrian aviation allegedly attacked chemical munitions in the city of Khan-Sheikhoun, which killed about 100 civilians, and also 400 injured.
For reference: the city of Khan Sheikhun is located in 55 km south of Idlib - the capital of the same province of the Syrian Arab Republic. This territory is under the control of the Dzhebhat al-Nusra terrorist group since 2014.
CHRONOLOGY OF EVENTS
After 8.00 in the morning of April 4, freelance journalist Muazz al-Shami and Abdullah al-Ghani, who are in Idlib, provided the media resources of the Syrian opposition and Al-Jazeera TV channels with the participation of the so-called "White Helmets" - Civil Defense "video clips on the" consequences of the so-called air strikes using chemical weapons»On the outskirts of the city of Khan-Sheykhun, Idlib province. At the same time, Muazz al-Shami in his story specifically called gas "Zarin."
For reference: “White Helmets” is an organization that has repeatedly discredited its connection with the terrorist organizations “Jebhad al-Nusra”, “Al-Qaeda”, whose real activity is the production of staged photo-video materials to discredit the Syrian government, the Syrian army and the Russian Aerospace Forces.
On 10.00 in the morning, the National Coalition of Opposition and Revolutionary Forces of Syria (NKORS) issued a statement that more than 54 people died and at least 80 suffered as a result of the so-called “chemical attack” by the Syrian government forces. Most of the victims were evacuated to Turkey, to medical institutions of Gaziantep.
At the same time, information on the use of "chemical weapons" by the Syrian army in the Khan-Sheikhun region began to spread rapidly in foreign media and social networks.
One of the first about the alleged "chemical attack" in 9.50 (Moscow time) was reported by the opposition website "Jobar News", which accused government forces of using sarin and reported on 40 victims.
In 10.41 (MSK), the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (UK) spread information on its website about the use of chemical weapons in the province of Idlib (Syria) on the Russian Federation’s web site, reporting the death of 58 people.
In 11.08 (Moscow time), the Reuters news agency posted similar information material, citing data from the Syrian Observatory on Human Rights.
At 12.30 (Moscow time) news Al-Masdar News (Lebanon) reported that the Syrian Arab army in Khan Sheikhun, Idlib province, had destroyed a militant chemical weapons factory.
In 16.30 (Moscow time), Al-Masdar News questioned the fact that residents were poisoned with sarin. In favor of their doubts, the agency gave an example of the fact that on video and photographic materials devoted to the incident in Khan-Sheikhun, representatives of the White Helmets, who do not have reliable remedies, provide assistance to the victims. At the same time, there is a suspicion of too calm behavior of representatives of this organization in emergency situations, which creates an impression of the staged nature of the material presented.
Follow-up reaction in Western media
The Western media reacted sharply to reports of alleged himatak in Khan-Sheikhun.
In 15.00 4 April, Paris took the initiative to convene an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council on this issue.
This was followed by a statement by the UN special envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura: “What happened this morning, we discussed this with F.Mogherini, terribly. We demand, and the UN will require, and I am sure that there will be a meeting of the UN Security Council on this issue, to determine responsibility. ” Then followed statements of the Foreign Ministry of Turkey, Germany, Canada, USA, France, Great Britain, NATO Secretary General condemning the so-called “Syrian himataku”. At the same time, Russia and China advocated that the investigation into the use of chemical weapons in Syria be objective and fair.
At a meeting of the UN Security Council, US Representative N. Haley accused the Syrian government of the so-called "chemical attack."
THE DEVELOPMENT OF MYTHS
What was it really?
Our experts, with the involvement of independent experts, thoroughly analyzed materials from the scene of the tragedy that were replicated by foreign media, which were used to justify American aggression, and we declare with all the responsibility: NO "CHEMICAL ATTACK" WAS NOT.
Consider the first argument.
The charges used the argument of the use of Syrian aviation munitions containing toxic substances. For which were given videos showing the fact of a chemical attack.
The type of ammunition shown in the video does not apply to aviation weapons and, moreover, does not apply to chemical weapons. On it there is no tail plumage and any marking. Most likely, this is a handicraft mine or some kind of metal product that is not at all related to ammunition.
Immediately the question arises, why should government forces use chemical ammunition manufactured in an artisanal way, which may not work or lead to the defeat of those who use them?
In addition, on all materials from different angles, only one small funnel is demonstrated, which can in no way be considered a consequence of an air strike.
Consider the second argument.
In many frames, we are trying to demonstrate the primary sign of exposure to organophosphorus toxic agents, namely miosis or constriction of the pupils. However, it is so unfortunate that, on the contrary, in the frames we see highly dilated pupils - mydriasis - practically in the entire iris of the eye. Such an effect can cause poisoning with narcotic or psychotropic drugs.
This version, by the way, was confirmed by Swedish experts from the organization “Swedish doctors for human rights”, who believe that the children shown in the videos were unconscious under the influence of psychotropic substances introduced by him (the statement “Swedish doctors for human rights” about distortions in the article Veterans Today regarding “White Helmets” from 8 in April (2017).)
Consider the third argument.
On the frames, there are no signs of lesion characteristic of mild and moderate degrees of severity, such as excessive salivation, lacrimation, and discharge of aqueous humor from the nose.
In the video, directors attempted to demonstrate nasal discharge, but such a weak degree had nothing to do with sarin.
Consider the fourth argument.
From the presented video materials it is clear that we want to demonstrate severe poisoning, since with mild and moderate degrees of damage a person is conscious and able to sit on his own, move around and perform other conscious actions. However, severe lesions are characterized by vomiting, urine and sewage, severe cramps, turning into paralysis. On the presented frames these symptoms are absent.
Consider the fifth argument.
Vaporous sarin is easily sorbed by porous materials: fabrics, wool, wood, brick, concrete. Also, this poisonous substance is absorbed into the painted surfaces and rubber products, which creates a danger of injury to a person who has emerged from the contaminated atmosphere, as well as people who are near him and, all the more, in contact with the affected.
Please note that the injured are assisted without the use of personal protective equipment such as gloves and gas masks.
The presence of only respirators on people's faces indicates a lack of knowledge in the field of military chemistry among the directors of this production. Sarin vapors work very well not only through the nasopharynx, but also through the mucous eyes. Therefore, if any poisonous substance were really applied, and after that, a person without protective equipment would contact contaminated surfaces - whether it be fabrics, wood, clothing, and the like, he would definitely get defeated. We see healthy, energetic and vigorous so-called "rescuers".
At the same time, it raises the question of what a person does in personnel in a high-quality gas mask, who oversees the provision of assistance to the victims, but does not take part in the work, only telling the operator who to shoot and where. Who is he and why others do not have such gas masks?
Consider the sixth argument.
In the 11: 00 area, videos were taken that were taken in the same place from different cameras, in which those who were injured were washed and taken away in an unknown direction. Judging by the elongated shadows, the video was shot no later than 9: 30-10: 00 - that is, a few hours before the time of the strike of the Syrian aviation.
In 11: 30-12: 30 (judging by the almost complete absence of shadows) - a video is filmed in the territory of the militant camp to the east of Khan-Sheikhun, in which a series of air strikes are allegedly inflicted on the base. There are no victims of alleged himataki on the video. However, the frame shows several dead bodies.
A reasonable question arises: where did all the victims of the "chemical attack" go?
Consider the seventh argument.
There are practically no women among the victims of the attack. The bulk of the victims are men and children, and women are only among the dead. If we assume that the video materials were fabricated, we can assume that the absence of women is due to the fact that, according to Muslim tradition, a man has no right to touch other women.
The body of a woman. She is dressed, despite the fact that many other victims undress. Nobody touches her.
Injured men. They are stripped, washed, turned over.
Consider the actions of the so-called "rescuers" from the "White Helmets".
We have repeatedly said that “White Helmets” is a biased organization that has established itself as the creators of stage documentary films with elements of fiction, as well as associated with terrorists.
In favor of the fact that once again we are dealing with a cheap production, they are told by other facts, besides those mentioned earlier.
The shots of the “rescuers” actions look extremely unprofessional: some people randomly pour water on the victims, allegedly washing away chemicals from them, others immediately give them artificial respiration.
In the video you can see how the representative of the "White Helmets" roughly grabs the injured child and for some reason runs with him towards the wasteland. At the same time, in a hastily cropped frame you can see how it slows down after the scene with his participation was filmed.
It also raises questions and why “rescuers” so diligently and artistically spread the bodies of injured children and adults in front of cameras instead of providing them with medical assistance as soon as possible?
In addition, the photo shows two people in white suits of chemical protection, who are assisted in the defeat of toxic substances.
In the future, these same people appear in the background appear quite healthy.
WHEN WAS THE USA ADMINISTRATED DECISION ON THE ATTACK BY THE WINGED ROCKETS OF THE “AL-SHAYRAT” FLIGHT?
Missile strike on Aer. Shairat
The destroyer missile defense "Porter" of the US Navy has been in military service in the Mediterranean and Black Seas since November 2016. The onboard equipment of the ship allows you to store an array of data of targets throughout the entire area of its combat service and prepare flight missions for Tomahawk cruise missiles directly on the destroyer.
The missile defense missile system Ross, which 3 on April 2017 of the year left its permanent base of the Rota naval base (Spain) and with a maximum speed in 72 hours, together with the destroyer Porter, arrived in a predetermined missile launch area in the eastern parts of the Mediterranean.
It should be noted that 3 of April of this year, when the destroyer “Ross” set off for a combat mission in the prescribed course, no attacks by Syrian aviation against terrorist targets in the village of Khan-Sheikhun had yet occurred.
Such a maneuver by the US Navy ships indicates a well-planned rocket attack on Syrian government military targets.
In order to create a motive for three months in the opposition Syrian and Western media, government forces were accused of using chemical weapons against militants and civilians. 4 April 2017 was held in Khan-Sheihun 18 re-enactment of a chemical attack by the Syrian Air Force aircraft on the inhabitants of the city.
Since the time of readiness for the launch of cruise missiles from destroyers of the US Navy is up to 8 hours, after the information campaign held in Khan-Sheikhun, the fate of the Al-Sheyrat airbase was predetermined.
All these facts convincingly prove that the decision on a massive missile attack on Syria was made in Washington long before the fabricated 4 events of April 2017 in Khan-Sheikhun, and shooting from the so-called “place of event” is directed by falsification, which has the goal of creating an informational reason for attack cruise missiles and justify US aggression against independent Syria.
