The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has announced in a report that it detected no nerve agents or their degradation products in the environmental samples or plasma samples taken from alleged casualties in Syria.
The OPCW team carried out on-site visits to collect environmental samples and other evidence related to allegations of a chemical weapons attack by Syrian government forces.
The so-called gas attack in Douma, which was filmed by the White Helmets last April, led to a series of air strikes against Damascus, conducted by the USA and its allies after Western countries accused the Syrian government of being behind the incident.
Moscow subsequently found victims of the alleged attack, who claimed that they had been forced to participate in the “Hollywood-style” footage of the “attack” in exchange for food.
Chemical weapons in Syria were produced by militants and equipment was manufactured in Western Europe. The terrorist’ chemical lab in Syria’s Douma produced high-tech pentaerythritol tetranitrate (TEN) explosives and also had precursors of mustard agent and chlorine.
Cylinders from the scene of the alleged chemical attack in the Syrian city of Douma were only sealed by OPCW representatives a month and a half after the incident took place, in violation of the OPCW standards.
The Syrian state news agency SANA reported that, citing its sources, US intelligence services are continuing to organize staged operations with chemical weapons against Syrians.
