Moscow: WHO must clarify sources behind statement on 500 victims in Douma
The WHO may have fallen for lies coming from flawed sources, when it released a statement reporting that 500 people with signs of chlorine poisoning had been treated in Syria’s Douma, said a senior Russia diplomat.

The statement released by the World Health Organization (WHO) on Wednesday cited “Health Cluster partners” as the source of the information, which the UN body called a source of serious concern. Moscow believes that, considering the controversy surrounding Douma, the WHO has to clarify who those sources were exactly.

“According to our information, those partners are no one else than representatives of the notorious White Helmets group,” Gennady Gatilov, Russian envoy to the Geneva offices of the United Nations, told journalists.

“We asked the WHO to name those partners, the hospitals where the alleged 500 patients were treated, report who counted that number, who diagnosed them and so on,” he said, adding that the WHO staff “failed to provide detailed information to substantiate the claims in the statement.”

The diplomat added that under Russian pressure, the WHO said that the sources they received the information from were not based in Syria. Instead, the information came from the Turkish city of Gaziantep, “which explains why we have serious reservations about” the source, the diplomat said.

“There is only one operational hospital in Douma now. All the others are no longer operational,” Gatilov stated. “We cannot exclude that the WHO leadership had been pressured by some Western powers, which are interested in escalating the tension over Syria.”

The nature of the incident in Douma, which was reported on April 7 by pro-jihadist sources, remains a matter of debate. The sources blamed it on the Syrian government, with some nations, like the US, taking the report at face value and claiming that it justifies military action against the government forces. Moscow says the report's evidence of the alleged attack was fabricated with an apparent goal to draw the US into attacking the victorious Syrian Army troops.

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons announced on Tuesday that it will deploy a fact-finding mission to Douma, with Damascus pledging full cooperation to inspectors.

Haley uses child victims as tool v Russia – after US called civilian casualties a ‘fact of life’
Children suffering in war have become tools for the West, with Nikki Haley stating that Russia’s hands are “covered in their blood” in Syria. However, the US seems to not mind “collateral damage” in the wars it’s backing.

Speaking at the UN Security Council meeting following an alleged chemical attack in Syria, the US ambassador said that “the Russian regime, whose hands are all covered in the blood of Syrian children, cannot be ashamed by pictures of its victims – we’ve tried that before.”

It’s a common tale to come out of Washington and the US media, in an apparent attempt to gain support for American foreign policy when it comes to Russia and Syria – in particular, a new military intervention. However, US officials and media appear to be focused on some war victims, while turning a blind eye on victims of campaigns the American military took part in, be it in Syria’s Raqqa or Iraq’s Mosul. In his infamous comment on CBS, US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said civilian deaths in the war against terrorism are merely a “fact of life.”

In addition, America seems to ignore the plight of children in Yemen, many of whom are on the brink of famine. Instead, Washington continues to assist the Saudi-led coalition in its bombing campaign. And it wasn't long ago that US President Donald Trump touted America’s billion-dollar arms sale to Saudi Arabia.

Then there’s Afghanistan, where the US has for years been responsible for deaths and injuries of innocent civilians – including children. Their stories have been left untold in the mainstream media. Some of the relatives of those killed by American troops have been trying to fight for justice, but the most they can usually get is a formal apology.

One can only wonder if the US administration itself can be “ashamed” of the daily victims of wars it started or facilitated – all the while using children to justify new invasions and bombing.
