Witnesses of the alleged chemical attack in Douma, including 11-year-old Hassan Diab and hospital staff, told reporters at The Hague that the White Helmets video used as a pretext for a US-led strike on Syria was, in fact, staged.
“We were at the basement and we heard people shouting that we needed to go to a hospital. We went through a tunnel. At the hospital they started pouring cold water on me,” the boy told the press conference, gathered by Russia’s mission at the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in The Hague.
Hassan was among the “victims” seen being washed by water hoses in a video released by the controversial White Helmets group on April 7. The boy and his family later spoke to the media and revealed that Hassan was hurried to the scene by men who claimed that a chemical attack had taken place. They started pouring cold water on the boy and others, filming the frightened children.
“There were people unknown to us who were filming the emergency care, they were filming the chaos taking place inside, and were filming people being doused with water. The instruments they used to douse them with water were originally used to clean the floors actually,” Ahmad Kashoi, an administrator of the emergency ward, recalled. “That happened for about an hour, we provided help to them and sent them home. No one has died. No one suffered from chemical exposure.”

Watching the 6 o'clock BBC news either last night or the night before they had the little girl from the "gas" attack on while a woman done a voice over stating that there was a gas attack. If it turns out to be dust there should be some very serious questions asked of the media both here and the US cheerleading on the war.

Sorry mate, at work hence late (skiving) replies......................... Yes the guardian article is very interesting. The Guardian is a fairly chilled read but no doubt the writers have some direction to aim at for someone paying their wages somewhere in the system. The theoretical gas attack just smells of donkey manure and this article is pointing more than ever towards that. I just can't get over the obsession with Syria and the desperation to topple Assad by outside forces or at the very least to keep the conflict going or frozen.
