A BBC correspondent in Syria has proved, after a six-month investigation, that the horrific pictures of dying children in Douma, following the alleged Syrian government sarin gas attack, were staged and no such attack occurred. Riam Dalati, a well-known BBC producer shocked his followers this week when he reported that a thorough investigation showed that Syrian-based jihadists had faked the sarin claims to provoke a Western military retaliation against the Syrian government.
The faked sarin attack allegedly took place on April 7, 2018. Groups like the jihadist-allied White Helmets claimed that 70 civilians had been killed in the sarin attack, conducted by the Syrian Arab Army. Russia and Syria immediately denied that the sarin attack occurred, and accused British Intelligence of staging the incident to induce a military action against the Syrian government. On April 14, 2018, US, British and French air strikes on Damascus took place "in retaliation" for the sarin attack. The military actions were taken before inspectors from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) could inspect the site and issue their findings.
As Dalati reported, OPCW inspectors found no evidence of sarin. Dalati was blunt in his tweet: "After almost six months of investigations, I can prove without a doubt that the Douma Hospital scene was staged."
Dalati's report has been systematically suppressed by the MSM (no surprise), and even BBC has attempted to walk back from his report. Zero Hedge picked up on Dalati's tweets and otherwise, it was the Russian media–RT and Sputnik News–that gave the only coverage.
SST was on the case from day one in April 2018–voicing skepticism and raising strategic questions: Why, in the face of military victories against jihadist forces, would the Assad government conduct such an unnecessary attack, sure to provoke international reaction and likely military retaliation? SST noted the fact that the OPCW inspectors found no evidence of sarin.
The fact that it took almost a year for one intrepid BBC producer to come out publicly with what readers of SST knew from the outset is shameful. MSM is the purveyor of fake news, which includes suppression of real news when it contradicts the meme of the hour. And by the way, SST has also been reporting for years that White Helmets are, indeed, a front for British Intelligence–founded by a retired British Army Colonel, financed by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the Ministry of Defence.
