US-Led Missile Attack on Syria Illegal, Blatant Aggression: President Assad

Alwaght- Russia accused British spy services along with their American counterparts of orchestrating recent chemical attack in Syria's Douma town to use it as a pretext for missile strikes against the country whose army is fighting terrorist groups in the Damascus suburb.

"We have not just a ‘high level of confidence,’ as our Western partners uniformly put it; we have irrefutable proof that there was no chemical attack in Douma on April 7,” Russia’s Representative at the Organisation for Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) Alexander Shulgin in remarks during a meeting of the organization’s executive council in The Hague on Monday. Shulgin described the incident as a “pre-planned false-flag attack by the British security services, which could have also been aided by their allies in Washington".

The Western countries rushed to blame the Douma incident on the Syrian government, but Damascus strongly rejected the accusation as “chemical fabrications” meant to halt pro-government forces’ advances against foreign-backed terrorists.

Syria has rejected any involvement in the suspected attack. It surrendered its chemical stockpile in 2013 to a mission led by the OPCW and the UN.

On April 14, the US, Britain and France launched more than 100 missiles at sites and research facilities near Damascus and Homs with the purported aim of reducing the Syrian government’s capabilities to launch chemical attacks.

Syrian air defenses shoot down a significant number of the missiles fired at the country in violation of international law and the UN Charter.

Elsewhere in his remarks, the Russian official accused Washington of playing “first fiddle” in the Douma incident based on a “pre-written scenario."

The alleged chemical attack in Douma was staged by “pseudo-humanitarian NGOs,” which are under the patronage of the Syrian government’s foreign adversaries, he added.

Shulgin also stressed that Russian military specialists had found “not a single piece of evidence” substantiating the Western claims about the Douma incident.

The Syrian government had absolutely no reason to conduct a gas attack on Douma when the city was already almost liberated from grip of militants, and thus the anti-Damascus accusations look “absurd,” he added.

The Russian official further denounced the tripartite April 14 “military aggression” on Syria, saying “this crime can be by no means justified".

Washington, London and Paris “are playing the hypocrite as they pretend to be the defenders of the international law. In fact, however, no one except for their allies… has any doubts that the major threat to the world comes from these ‘leaders’ of the Western [political] camp,” he pointed out.

"In fact, if they say they bombed storehouse with chemical weapons and there are no traces of chemical contamination that proves the fact that their version of secret chemical stockpiles in hands of the Syrian governmental forces has been obviously made up,” Shulgin said.

He also concluded that the US and its allies are not interested in a real investigation into the alleged Douma gas attack.

Patients have ‘no symptoms of chemical poisoning

Meanwhile, an intern medic at a Douma hospital stressed that no symptoms of chemical poisoning was found in the patients brought in after the alleged chemical attack.

Marwan Jaber said that following the Douma incident, a group of unidentified people came to the hospital and started to spread panic about a chemical attack.

"Some injured people and unidentified personnel stormed in and spreading message of chemical attack. People were terrified and a panic was triggered. We diagnosed them, there were no related symptoms,” he said.
