An exclusive report by Pearson Sharp of One America News, who went to the site of the alleged chemical weapons attack in the war-torn town of Douma outside the capital of Damascus, reported that residents there deny an attack happened and instead claim it was staged by rebel forces in an effort to incite a response from Western forces. And he talked to the doctor who was on the duty that day, who said there were no chemical attack victims. And even said that that day group of people walked in with cameras, sprayed water on some of them, filmed that and left, while there were they looking at them, there were no signs that they were gassed. Same conclusions found the journalist from the UK for the independent, who also was on the ground in Syria.

In more Syria news, a survey by FAIR found that out of top 100 papers in the US by circulation found not a single editorial board opposed to Trump’s April 13 airstrikes on Syria.

The UN Department of Safety and Security (UNDSS) continues to prevent chemical inspectors from entering Douma for their investigation, citing safety concerns. They have offered no timetable for when the Organization for Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) inspectors will be allowed in.

He was eventually found by his father, who said he didn’t hear about any chemical attack that day. “I went to the hospital, walked upstairs, and found my wife and children.
