An update on my BBC complaint process into the staged “child rescue” of a “BabyAya” by the #WhiteHelmets
It’s often been claimed that Syrian rebels have not been seen using the modified 107mm IRAMs associated with chlorine attacks. There is now footage of them firing these rockets.
The OPCW, once underpinned by their valuation of a Chain of Custody on evidence collection. That changed. How? I investigate.
This is the third part in the “M4000: The Sarin Deception” series which I focus in on the claim made that an M4000 Syrian aerial bomb was used to deliver sarin to Khan Sheikhoun on 4 April 2017 and Al-Lataminah on 30 March 2017.
In my previous investigation into the “Baby Aya” story, I analysed the video of an alleged White Helmet rescue of a child named Aya. Upon further analysis, I became concerned the sounds of crying may not have belonged in the video but were subsequently added after-the-fact. To be sure I asked a professional, independent, forensic analysis company to take a provisional look at the video and see if my theory held any water, as it were.
Given the limitations in some evidence, the Mission was not able to determine “with absolute certainty” the use of a chemical weapon, but was able to determine the presence of sarin on samples that came from the alleged site of the incident.
Having shown in a previous study how the OPCW-FFM were “Willing Dupes at Lataminah” for “White Helmet” staging of a chlorine attack I ask the same question of the FFM in an alleged sarin attack 5 days later in Lataminah.
You may recall my report of the 18 August 2019 in which I addressed the claims made by Eliot Higgins of Bellingcat that he had, “established a Syrian M4000 Sarin bomb..was used in.. Khan Sheikhoun”. In that report, I showed how Eliot made that claim in the absence of supporting evidence. In this report, I will shift the focus to his claim an M4000 was also used at Lataminah on the 30 March 2017.
It is claimed that a young girl named Aya was trapped in rubble after a building was bombed during a Syrian Army attack on Tishreen, Damascus on or around the 20 February 2017. But is that claim true or is this another example of events being staged by the “White Helmets”?
It was claimed by the “White Helmets” in Syria that a chlorine cylinder was dropped from a helicopter, penetrated soil, concrete then rebar before hitting the ground and jumping across the room of an underground hospital in Lataminah before coming to rest partially on a sofa. What does the evidence tell us of that claim?
