A new interview with the now infamous boy in the alleged chemical attack video used as a justification for the United States-led bombing of Syria is adding more doubt to the official narrative. The boy says he was told to go to the hospital where people started dousing him with water.
One of the main “characters” in the footage at the hospital is a water-soaked boy, who is seen being sprayed with water by people who claim to be “rescue workers.” It’s not clear whether they are doctors from the hospital, human rights activists, or White Helmets members. The latter usually make such videos and send them to news agencies, including Reuters.
In what could be the biggest fabrication in recent months, the Douma boy in the chemical attack video and his family have spoken about their ordeal to a Russian TV crew. It sure appears that the chemical attack was “staged suffering” by the White Helmets. The boy said that he was asked to go to the hospital, where people “grabbed” him and started “pouring water” over his head for no apparent reason.
Panic, fear, screaming adults, and frightened children featured in the purported footage of the aftermath following the alleged chemical attack in the Eastern Ghouta city. The video has been widely circulated by the mainstream media since April 7 after being posted by the so-called Douma Revolution group and “evidence” of the aftermath of the alleged attack.
A Russian broadcaster VGTRK said it found the boy in the video, who appeared to be 11-year-old Hassan Diab. His story differed from the one presented by the activists and later propagated by the mainstream media.
Hassan said he was in the basement with his mother, who said they ran out of food when they heard some noise outside. When they went outside, they heard random shouting that they should go to the hospital, so they did. “Somebody was shouting that we had to go to the hospital, so we went there. When I came in, some people grabbed me and started pouring water over my head,” he told Evgeny Poddubny, a war correspondent from Russian broadcaster VGTRK. Hassan confirmed that he was the boy in the video, and was very scared when the whole situation unfolded. He is now fine and shows no symptoms of having experienced a chemical attack two weeks ago.
In an Instagram post, Poddubny claimed that 11-year-old Hassan got some much-needed food in exchange for his participation in the staged video. Hassan’s father’s story corroborates his son’s. The boy was eventually found by his father, who said he didn’t hear about any chemical attack that day. “I went to the hospital, walked upstairs, and found my wife and children. I asked them what had happened, and they said people outside were shouting about some smell and told them to go to the hospital. At the hospital, they gave dates and cookies to the kids,” he said.
One of the medical workers, who was reportedly on shift at the time, said he was surprised by the sudden influx. “Some people came here and washed people. They said: ‘Chemical attack. Chemical attack.’ We didn’t see any chemical attack symptoms,” he added. He did, however, say that there were many people with respiratory problems as a result of dust from recent bombings in the city. British war journalist Robert Fisk also noted that that was the story he’d gotten when speaking with a doctor from Douma.
More importantly, The Independent‘s famous war journalist Robert Fisk haspublished a report which affirms the story so many western government lapdogs have been dismissing as Kremlin propaganda for days now. After interviewing a doctor from the hospital of the area where the Douma attack was supposed to have occurred, Fisk was told by Dr. Assim Rahaibani that what was in actuality an outbreak of respiratory distress among occupants of a dusty oxygen-deprived tunnel was made to look like the aftereffects of a chemical weapons attack when a member of the White Helmets started shouting about a gas attack in front of a bunch of video cameras. Everyone panicked and started hosing themselves down, but in the video, according to Rahaibani, “what you see are people suffering from hypoxia — not gas poisoning.” –SHTFPlan
Moscow is planning to show the video about Hassan’s experience at the next meeting of the United Nations Security Council, Russia’s UN envoy Vassily Nebenzia told Rossiya 1 on Thursday.
The U.S, the U.K., and France launched a coordinated attack on Syria using the video young Hassan says was staged as justification. Also damming for the West was that the timing of the strikes. The announcement of the attack on Syria came hours before the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) team was scheduled to arrive in Douma to determine whether chemical weapons had been used there. It appears that the West was all too eager to destroy evidence, or lack thereof, of alleged chemical weapons use.
Well, what else is new, yet another phoney gas attack with the predicted response by the real terrorists in Syria. I hope that this is shown to the morons in the U.N. And the idiot in the White House.
The IDIOT on here is you. You have no clue to what is really going on. The Strike was used as decoy and US troops retook over the oil fields Dumpkauf. You Stupid!
And it’s cost the lives of an entire American continent? Do not understand that this is the end?
The purpose of this fake ‘chemical attack’ may have been getting Trump out of the White House by manipulating him into an air strike on Syria.
About the only chemical attack that is real is the one in Washington D.C. and whatever the hell is in the water up there. Must be some pretty ‘good’ stuff. Only problem is is that it stinks like rotten eggs. Sulfur-like. Kind of a hellish aroma.
Man, somebody needs a history lesson, the US seized the oil wells in the East a year ago. put down the beer and
In the past they showed dead bodies, I’ve not seen any dead or suffering. Just people running around in the dust and getting sprayed with a garden hose. Think we’ll know the truth sometime after we find out what happened at the Las Vegas shooting.
Yes AL ASSAD did not gas his people and everything else the fake media is filling our heads with is bullshit, for the truth about syria watch the canadian journalist EVA BARTLETT who was the only reporter actually in syria unlike the bbc who just repeat the scripted lies , it’s all about picking sunni or shia governments and the USA and gang went with the saudis sunni wahabi version of islam believing they would be easier to control WHAT T F it’s going to cost us dearly especially because they keeping up the ruse that the friendly sunnis are the good mussys our borders are open to all even undocumented fighting age males , we don’t take in the Christians and yazidi or shias who are the ones actually being slaughtered or taken as sex slaves this should of woke us all up but i guess the CNNs have us all brainwashed, in europe they are already paying with their children’s blood because of this evil plot that saw all borders left wide open could it be that the elites who are a god ordered enemy of islam think it’s a great idea having hundreds of millions of fighting age muslims no longer on their door step and maybe they’re also hoping that the rest of the world gets a taste of just how evil and sick muslims and their war manual the quran really are and then stop getting in the way of every time they take more land hurah ban Islam now
Pretty much everyone knows that the chemical attack was phony.
So do the warmongers even need an excuse for murdering people? Probably not. They are over confident. They are sowing the seeds of their own destruction, in this world and the next.
Even if you don’t believe in God as such, one can not defy the natural laws. For every action there is a reaction, cause and effect.
The boys on the 2 pictures are not the same. Different eyes, nose, mouth and ears. More fake news.
I agree, they are not the same, tried to find a look alike kid to make us feel like we were wrong. I also saw a report of a Mom and kid that verified the chemical attack. They just missed it and said they were lucky. I feel it really did happen, the elites just don’t want us to believe it.
The dishonesty of main stream media is only exceeded by their arrogance! That arrogance leads them to believe that they are far smarter than everyone else! A’int so! Also, the favorite nickname of conservative parents for each other is not “cuz”.
Lying bastards should be hung….just another excuse like Iraq….the people of the world are awakening and shall revolt in every country in time dragging the CORRUPT politicians, big business and rich to the streets to answer for their crimes against humanity …..it is ALL about money, control and oil…nothing more…think twice about the reality as they sucker you in with such things as patriotism only to harvest your sons and daughters to be thrown into the fire they have created to benefit only themselves not the family the working man not the innocent who they enslave from the minute they are born through financial enslavement…OPEN your eyes research become empowered and question everything!!!!
The chemical attack was real. More BS from Russia. Anyone that says they saw or heard anything from a Russian source is automatically discounted in my eyes. Of course Russia says there was no chemical attack. They were the ones that helped Assad. Unless you think the US military is lying.
