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?
What caused the release of the alleged release of sarin at Khan Sheikhoun? Allegations abound and theories in abundance, Eliot Higgins of Bellingcat believed he’d found the smoking gun: an M4000 Syrian chemical bomb. But is he right? What does the evidence say?

False claim of chlorine attack in Irbin, 3 Feb 2018
Having unsuccessfully tried to inform Higgins that he was using the same image to claim two separate “chlorine attacks” I decided to post on his blog to inform him. The post went “live” then a short while later went to ‘moderation’. It never appeared again. Here it is in full.
