The lack of objectivity is staggering.
The allegations can scarcely be taken serious for the following reasons:
1. Syria Does Not Have Chemical Weapons
Not only did the Syrian government deny using chemical weapons, but they released a statement stating that the Syrian military
“…has not and does not use them, not in the past and not in the future, because it does not have them in the first place”.
In 2013, a report from
the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons-UN Joint
Mission in Syria, concluded that all chemical weapons have been removed
from Syria. The mission was overseen by both the United States and
Russia with the cooperation of the Syrian government.
However, since then, various terrorist groups operating in Syria have used chemical weapons, including poisonous sarin gas.
Chemical weapons have been discovered across territories of Syria that
were once held by terrorist forces. Throughout much of the Syrian
conflict, politically motivated sources have accused Syria and her
allies of using chemical weapons, in spite of the fact that the opposite is true.
2. Russia Did Not Conduct Any Air Strikes on Idlib
A statement from the Russian military has confirmed that
Russian planes have not been present anywhere in the Idlib Governorate.
This exposes any allegations relating to Russian involvement in any
event in Idlib as entirely fabricated.
3. Fake News from Fake Sources
The initial Reuters report on the event cites the UK based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights as its source. This organisation has been widely discredited as a propaganda outlet that has few actual contacts in Syria, if any.
Because few western mainstream media reporters are on the
ground anywhere in Syria, much of the information reported as factual
accounts of events, is received from deeply biased and politicised
sources pushing an agenda. In other words, pro-terrorist NGOs and other
organisations feed mainstream media with disinformation that is passed
on as fact.
The absurdity of the latest allegation against Syria and her
allies, is yet another example of how fake news has developed during
the Syrian war. It is a simple matter of totally unreliable sources
being cited as deliverers of fact, without anyone in major outlets
questioning their veracity.
This is what has allowed the false narrative about Syria to
become pervasive in Europe and the establishment English language press.
