Russian Media Cites OAN Report Questioning Syrian Chemical Weapons


Russian English language programming praises American journalists who went to Syria to look for evidence of a chemical attack.

'One America News' reporter Pearson Sharp visited Douma, the site of the latest alleged chemical weapons attack, outside the Syrian capital of Damascus looking for evidence. He claims to have found no evidence that any chemical attack took place and discovered that many pro-Assad Syrians believe rebel groups staged the whole incident.

Meanwhile, chemical weapons inspectors from the UN's Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons have entered the town for their official investigation of claims of a chemical weapons attack in the Syrian town.

RT’s Yulia Shapovalova highlights OAN reporter Pearson Sharp's inquiries at the hospital where victims were brought after the alleged attack.

"When I asked [the doctors at the hospital] what they thought the chemical attack was, they told me --all of them told me-- that it was staged by the rebels who are occupying the town at the time. They said it was a fabrication and a hoax an when I asked them why, they told me it was because the rebels were desperate, and they needed a ploy to get the Syrian army off their backs so they could escape," Sharp reported.
