Syria: Allegations of using chemical weapons unconvincing stereotype

Allegations of using chemical weapons unconvincing stereotype
A source at Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said on Sunday that allegations of using chemical weapons have become an unconvincing stereotype, except for some countries which traffic with the blood of civilians and support terrorism in Syria.

Every time the Syrian Arab Army advances in combatting terrorism, the allegations of using chemical weapons emerge as a pretext to prolong the presence of terrorists in Douma, the source added.

“The pretext of using chemicals in Ghouta was pre-planned and there is documented and confirmed information about this against which the Syrian state has previously warned,” the source said.

A number of misleading media outlets and those that speak by the name of terrorist organizations have launched a campaign to accuse the Syrian Arab Army of using chemical weapons during operations against terrorists in Duma, followed by a US-led Western political campaign to justify any hostile moves against Syria aimed at supporting terrorists and preventing them from collapsing.



  1. Anti-government "activists", including the notorious White Helmets civil defense group, on Saturday blamed the Syrian authorities of using chemical weapons in the militant-held town of Douma in Eastern Ghouta, saying that dozens of civilians were killed and hundreds affected.

    The claims have renewed calls for a Syria intervention by the West, while Damascus said they were a "fabrication" and Russia's Foreign Ministry on Sunday called them "fake news."

    While a media storm immediately followed, accusing Syria's Bashar Assad of heinous crimes and predicting a new US strike against Damascus forces in response, journalists with knowledge of events on the ground in Syria wondered aloud if the claims should be treated with a grain of salt.

    ndependent journalist Vanessa Beeley, who visited the Syrian frontline on numerous occasions, said the chemical attack report, quickly picked up by mainstream media, was "also 100 percent lie," pointing out that the White Helmets group had been caught producing fakes before.

    The timing of the alleged chemical attack claims was questioned by journalist Caitlin Johnstone, who pointed out that reports spread "just as Trump was seeking a withdrawal from Syria and just as [Syrian President Bashar] Assad was approaching victory in Douma."

  2. Paris is concerned about reports on the use of chemical weapons in Syria's Eastern Ghouta and urges to convene the UN Security Council to discuss the situation, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said...

    "I recall that the use of chemical weapons is a war crime and a violation of the international non-proliferation regime. France, as the president of the republic, has repeatedly stated, will assume all the responsibilities in the fight against the spread of chemical weapons. France calls on the United Nations Security Council to convene a meeting as soon as possible to discuss the situation in Eastern Ghouta," French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said in a statement.

    He also expressed his concern about reports of a new use of chemical weapons.

    "I express my outrage in connection with images and information [about alleged chemical attack], which is passed on to several organizations that have witnessed on the scene," Le Drian said.

    Le Drian added that France was actively cooperating with its allies and relevant international organizations to verify the reality and origin of these attacks.

    He also condemned the blockade of the city of Douma in Eastern Ghouta by the Syrian government forces.

    "I strongly condemn the continuation of the siege of the city of Douma in Eastern Ghouta by the Syrian regime and the bombing, which resulted in a large number of civilian casualties over the past 24 hours," the minister said.

  3. Attaque chimique présumée en Syrie : la France assumera «toutes ses responsabilités»...

    Peu après la formulation de menaces à l'encontre de Bachar el-Assad par Donald Trump, qui l'accuse d'avoir mené une attaque chimique, Paris s'est dit prêt à assumer «toutes ses responsabilités au titre de la lutte contre la prolifération chimique».

    Après Washington, est-ce au tour de Paris de menacer le gouvernement syrien d'actions militaires ? Le 8 avril en fin d'après-midi, le ministre français des Affaires étrangères Jean-Yves Le Drian a fait savoir que Paris assumerait «toutes ses responsabilités au titre de la lutte contre la prolifération chimique», concernant les accusations d'attaque chimique portées par Washington contre Damas. La France a plusieurs fois signifié qu'elle frapperait militairement les forces syriennes en cas d'usage avéré d'armes chimiques.

    En outre, sous l'impulsion de la France, neuf pays ont demandé une réunion du Conseil de sécurité de l'ONU, ce 9 avril à 19h, concernant l'attaque chimique présumée du 7 avril à Douma, selon des sources diplomatiques citées par l'AFP.

  4. Claims about the use of chemical weapon in Syria have become a boring and unconvincing narrative except to the countries which participate in shedding the Syrians' blood through their support for terrorism in Syria, a source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said on Sunday.

  5. The United Nations Security Council is likely to meet Monday afternoon over the recent chemical attack in Syria at the request of the United States and several other members, diplomats said on Sunday.

  6. "We have a lot of options militarily, and we'll be letting you know pretty soon. Probably after the fact," Donald Trump told reporters during the meeting with senior military officials on the situation in Syria at the White House.

  7. The US will act against the Syrian government with or without a UN blessing, US envoy Nikki Haley told the Security Council, blaming Russian “obstructionism” for allowing the alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria and beyond.
    “We are beyond showing pictures of dead babies. We are beyond appeals to conscience. We have reached the moment when the world must see justice done,” Haley declared to the Security Council on Monday, accusing Russia of backing the “monster” [Bashar] Assad, who was murdering children with chemical weapons.

    “The Russian regime, whose hands are all covered with the blood of Syrian children, cannot be ashamed by pictures of its victims. We’ve tried that before,” Haley said, adding that “no civilized government would have anything to do with Assad’s murderous regime.”

  8. EEUU podría enviar otro destructor lanzamisiles al este del Mediterráneo, donde ya se encuentra el navío USS Donald Cook, informó el diario The Wall Street Journal citando a funcionarios del Departamento de Defensa.
    El segundo destructor, USS Porter, podría llegar a esta zona en cuestión de días, según esas fuentes.

  9. Die deutsche Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel hält die Nachweise des angeblichen Einsatzes von chemischen Waffen in der Stadt Duma für überzeugend...

    Diese Auffassung hat sie bei einer gemeinsamen Pressekonferenz mit dem ukrainischen Präsidenten Petro Poroschenko am Dienstag geäußert.
    „Ich glaube, dass die Evidenz, dass dort Chemiewaffen eingesetzt wurden, sehr, sehr klar und sehr deutlich ist", sagte sie.

    „Das kann auch meinetwegen nochmal nachgeprüft werden. Aber das hilft uns bei der Verurteilung des Falles jetzt nicht weiter", fügte sie hinzu.

  10. El presidente estadounidense Donald Trump ha cancelado su primera visita a América Latina. Así lo confirma la Casa Blanca, precisando que el mandatario se quedará en EE.UU. para "supervisar la respuesta sobre Siria"...

    En la gira prevista por Trump se incluía la visita a Perú por motivo de la Cumbre de las Américas, que comenzará el 13 de abril en ese país. El mandatario también tenía planeado visitar Colombia.

    Previamente el presidente estadounidense, Donald Trump, advirtió que tomará una decisión sobre una posible respuesta al presunto ataque químico en Guta Oriental, Siria, en cuestión de 24 o 48 horas, y dijo que "todos pagarán un precio".
