Robert Fisk: No Evidence of Chemical Attack #SyriaStrikes
According to sources that have just spoken to Robert Fisk (Foreign correspondent with The UK Independent) in #Douma, at 13.00 today, who says he is the 1st journalist to visit the clinic where the ‘alleged’ chemical attack took place.
He went alone ie. not accompanied by military to see for himself. Everything is operating as per normal in a hospital. He confirms the following:
1. The footage is authentic – he could recognise the location
2. He spoke to doctors there who said that children were admitted coughing and spluttering
3. They were admitted AS A RESULT OF NEARBY SHELLING and DUST FUMES!
4. Someone created panic by shouting ‘gas, gas, gas’ and they began following procedure as they would in a gas attack by hosing them down
5. THERE WAS NO CHLORINE GAS ATTACK
