Russian Defence Minister: White Helmets Chemical Attack Footage ‘Staged’

After months of examining what little footage exists from the alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria’s Idlib Governorate from the 4th of April, Russia Defence Minister Sergey Shoigu has reached the conclusion that the entity of the footage is fake.

The pro-al-Qaeda group White Helmets who have recently been caught participating in a mass beheading, provided the US with footage of the aftermath of the alleged attack. Self-described rescuers were seen handling bodies which had been allegedly infected with sarin gas, without gloves, chemical resistant body suits or proper masks.

This combined with the fact that the US and Russia both agreed that the Syrian government gave up the last of its chemical weapons in 2014, has led many to conclude that the entire story of an attack was either fully fabricated or that the chemical weapon used was the chlorine gas which terrorists in Syria have been known to have smuggled in illegally and used on civilian populations, including in Aleppo.
