Israel Evacuates Infamous White Helmets from Syria

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

Masquerading as civil defense workers, White Helmets operate in areas controlled by US-supported terrorists.

Their mission has everything to do with aiding these cutthroat killers, used by Washington and its imperial allies in waging war to replace Syrian sovereign independent governance with pro-Western puppet rule.

Claiming they saved tens of thousands of lives in Syria is utter rubbish. They’ve been photographed and videotaped together with al-Nusra and other terrorists during beheadings and other atrocities. 

The Syria Solidarity Movement earlier called them al Qaeda “with a facelift,” fostering terrorism and imperial ravaging on the phony pretext of providing humanitarian aid.

People associated with the group are enemies of fundamental freedoms – their terrorist-related activities funded by Washington, Britain, and other imperial partners in high crimes.

They’re being evacuated from Syria because government forces are winning the battle against US-supported terrorists and themselves for complicity in their high crimes.

In April last year, an eastern Gouta resident said “if any of the terrorists were wounded, they would run to their aid, but civilians – NO.”

“When the camera was there, they would run around as if they were helping people.” Otherwise they scorned civilians in need.

Founded in Turkey, not Syria, by private UK security specialist/former military intelligence officer James Le Mesurier, the White Helmets have been all about aiding the US-led regime change imperial project in Syria.

Last April, Russia’s envoy to the OPCW Alexander Shulgin debunked the fake Douma CW narrative saying:

Eyewitnesses explained that film footage “featured fake pseudo-humanitarian action staged by the White Helmets.”

“We can prove that the video of the White Helmets is fabricated, and therefore there is no basis or validity to the signals of Western countries that this material is evidence of a chemical attack in the city of Douma.”

Douma hospital emergency ward administrator Ahmad Kashoi explained “(t)here were people unknown to us who were filming the emergency care.”

“They were filming the chaos taking place inside, and were filming people being doused with water. The instruments they used to douse them with water were originally used to clean the floors…”

“That happened for about an hour. We provided help to (the alleged victims) and sent them home. No one has died. No one suffered from chemical exposure.”

The entire ugly business was staged, White Helmets playing a central role.

Israel evacuated about 800 from their ranks in southern Syria, transporting them to neighboring Jordan. Reportedly they’ll be resettled in Europe, Canada, and perhaps elsewhere.

Evacuation had nothing to do with a humanitarian mission, everything to do will pulling these elements out of areas to be liberated by government forces.

Connected to anti-government terrorists, they’re complicit in their high crimes – rewarded by giving them safe haven in the west.
