Evidence shows that the White Helments organization is in fact a branch of the Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist group (now known as Hayat Tahrir al-Sham), the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement released via its website.
In a statement published on its Website on Friday, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that it has received information that this fake organization which was established with the support of Western intelligences, is making the last attempts to declare its presence in Syria and this time in the de-escalation zone in Idleb.
“It is no secret to anyone that this structure has worked exclusively on territories not controlled by the government and hasn’t avoided contacts with terrorists and extremists,” the statemend said. “On top of that, there is a lot of evidence proving that The White Helmets is virtually a branch of the terrorist organization al-Nusra, included in the UNSC’s sanctions list.”
The foreign ministry also urged the White Helmets’ “western sponsors to realize things as they are and stop defending those who are in actual fact provocateurs and extremists”.
“There is no need to outline all the “services” carried out by this organization. Let alone set-up videos of staged chemical attacks in the Syrian city of Douma. In actual fact, all reports on chemical substances emerging or moving around Syria feature the mentioning of The White Helmets,” the ministry stated.
The statement warned that the White Helments is making final desperate attempts to make a name for itself in Syria, this time in the Idlib de-escalation zone.
“Again, much like in the recent time, this is all about a preparation for a much talked about staged show, aimed at giving a free hand to the lawful Syrian government’s opponents, predominantly among western countries led by Washington,” the ministry stated refering to expected chemical weapons provocations.
