BTR News (Syria) – Famed Anti-Assad British war reporter travels to Syria and the site of the most recent alleged chemical attacks and finds no evidence of such and finds witnesses who confirmed there was no chemical attack. is an English writer and journalist and has been a Middle East correspondent intermittently since 1976 for various media; and since 1989 he has been correspondent for the British paper, The Independent and has been primarily based in Beirut.
In his article about visiting Douma in eastern Ghouta, an area controlled by a Islamist terrorist group backed by the West that wants to implement Sharia in Syria and has used people in cages as human shields, he writes about discovering that there was no gas attack and that the children seen in a video were suffering from oxygen deprivation from dust in the tunnels they have been living and forced to work. Fisk who spoke to the doctor on site said that while the patients were being treated, a member of the Islamist aligned White Helmets came in and yelled gas attack and throwing water on people causing a panic. Those images where then used by western media to promote what has turned out to be fake news but don’t expect any retractions from corporate media.
You can read Mr. Fisk’s article “The search for truth in the rubble of Douma – and one doctor’s doubts over the chemical attack” which was published on the Independent’s website on April 17th.
In the meantime, reports are surfacing that the Trump administration may contract with mercenary Erik Prince who used to run the Blackwater security company thrown out of Iraq for crimes against Iraqis and they are also considering turning over Syrian territory to Saudi Arabia which has been funding Islamist terrorist groups in the region for quite some time and a serial abuser of human rights.
