American journalists have not found evidence of gas in the Syrian Douma.
In early April, the West accused Damascus of using gas in the Syrian city of the Douma in East Gut and threatened with military strikes. Moscow refuted information about the chlorine bomb allegedly dropped by the Syrian military.
The Russian Foreign Ministry said that the goal of the throw-in on the use of poisonous substances by the troops of Syria is to shield the terrorists and justify possible power strikes from outside. At the same time in the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, on March 13, the provocations with a dramatization of the use of chemical weapons were reportedly being prepared by militants in East Ghuta.
The United States, Britain and France on the morning of April 14 hit rocket attacks on Syrian government facilities, which they believe used the chemical weapons. From 03:42 Moscow time to 05:10 Moscow time they released over 100 missiles in Syria, 71 of which were shot down by Syrian air defense. The Russian forces were not involved, but they monitored all the launches.
Russian President Vladimir Putin described the attacks as an act of aggression against a sovereign state, despite the fact that neither Russian military experts nor local residents confirmed the fact of a chemical attack, which became a pretext for strikes.
Journalists of the American television channel One America News Network visited the Duma and talked with the doctors of the hospital where the “gas attack” was filmed, and residents of the city.
The presenter on the air said that no one confirms the fact of the incident. According to him, he interviewed a dozen residents of the area, where, allegedly, an attack was committed. “They said that that day everything was as usual in this district and they did not notice anything unusual,” the journalist said.
According to him, he polled another 40-50 people around the city, and none of them heard anything about the chemical attack.
The correspondent said that he also managed to visit the square itself, where, it was alleged, there was a chemical attack, but where he did not find any evidence to support this. Then he visited the hospitals, which was under the control of the militants, and went into the room, which was shown in video clips and where, it was alleged, people were brought from the “gas attack”.
The reporter talked to one of the doctors on duty that day. “He said it was a normal day, but it was very dusty, many came with a cough, with irritation (of the airways), but there were no other injuries. … Suddenly a group of unknown people rushed into the room shouting that a chemical attack had occurred. They brought people who were allegedly injured and began to water them with water from hoses … <…> Doctors began to help people, and these unknown people who brought victims, began to shoot everything on video, “- he said.
Earlier, the Russian Defense Ministry showed at a briefing a video interview of the participants in the staging. According to eyewitnesses, when people were delivered to the hospital suffering from suffocation during a fire. Doctors said that “all the victims who were taken to the hospital had no signs of poisoning.”
