UK-funded White Helmets evacuated from Syria

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) confirmed that they had evacuated members of an unnamed local "civil organization at the request of the United States and some European countries" from southern Syria. CNN reported, citing sources on Monday, that White Helmets and their families were evacuated from Syria.

    According to the IDF, the people were evacuated from the war zone in Syria’s south due to an “immediate threat to their lives” and then transferred to Jordan.

    In addition seventy five journalists working in Syria in the “rebel” regions have called on Israel to help them. Their request is to be able to cross the border and then to be evacuated to Europe, Voltairenet reported.

    But Israel will not allow any Syrian refugees to enter its territory permamently, Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman told Reuters last month.

    The Jordanian Foreign Ministry has issued a press statement saying that Amman has allowed the United Nations to arrange passage for some 800 “Syrian refugees” through its territory for their further resettlement in Western countries that have agreed to accept them.

    Similarly to Israel, Amman agreed to only provide the passage on humanitarian grounds this week. In June, Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi said that his country would not accept refugees from southern Syria and that its border would remain closed. Jordan’s efforts were aimed at political reconciliation in Syria, he added.

    The “journalists” fleeing Syria were not named. They have been covering the war, mostly giving support to the various fact-free allegations of supposed crime committed by the Syrian Arab Republic, including the use of chemical weapons.

    While initially several of these “journalists” were on the pay rolls of TV news channels such as Al-Arabiya, the BBC, Al-Jazeera, France24 and Sky, today the word on the street is that there is no longer a demand for their services among international media, according to Voltairenet.

    Britain had deployed correspondents tasked with providing “images” and “witnesses” with an annual budget of almost 3 million euros per year, and they have been presented as seeking to fight ISIS. Yet in actual fact, it had been conceived, as a move to unseat Syrian president Assad, and to justify the war against the Arab Syrian Republic.

    Syria’s President Bashar Assad has said that the group is actually affiliated with al-Qaeda terrorists.

    On Saturday evening, the United Nations assisted the White Helmets personnel to cross into the Golan Heights. Their evacuation was discussed during the NATO summit last week in the light of the progress the Syrian government is making in regaining control over “rebel-controlled” regions.

    Personnel and families of the White Helmets from the southwest of Syria will later be transported to Great Britain, Canada and Germany, German tabloid Bild reported. Their evacuation was negotiated between the United States, Russia and the Syrian authorities.

    The White Helmets volunteer group presented itself a non-governmental organisation aimed at protecting Syrian civilians, but Russia accused them of helping to stage suspected chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

    Russia’s defence ministry said it had evidence that Britain worked with the White Helmets volunteer rescue force to fake a chemical attack in Douma in which at least 40 people died, in order to justify military action.

    Speaking at the embassy in London, ambassador Alexander Yakovenko in April this year said that the White Helmets, volunteers carrying out search and rescue after air strikes, were involved in false flag attacks. “I am naming them because they have done things like this before. They are famous for staging attacks in Syria and they receive UK money.”

    General Igor Konashenkov, spokesman at the defence ministry in Moscow repeated the accusation: “We have evidence that proves Britain was directly involved.”

    CBS News first reported the evacuation of the White Helmets from Syria on July 14, suggesting that UK Prime Minister Theresa May had personally intervened on behalf the group during President Trump’s recent visit to the UK.

When Soleimani left Baghdad's airport, he was bombed by a US drone along with the entire receiving Iraqi delegation.
