Activities of the “White Helmets” in Syria
20 December, 2018 – United Nations Headquarters – New York

Allow me at the outset to thank my distinguished colleagues in the Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation, who have worked with us for a long time in planning and preparing for this important event. Let me say here that we are proud of our partnership with the Russian Federation in countering terrorism and in the restoration of security, stability and prosperity in Syria. We are also proud of the level of cooperation and coordination between our two permanent missions here at the United Nations, in defense of the principles of the Charter and international law, and in order to clarify the truth and highlight facts.

I firmly believe that the timing of this event is crucial and most appropriate for all of us, as an opportunity to shed light on the wider picture that reflects the history, motives and circumstances of the emergence of a phenomenon called “White Helmets“. Today, you have seen and heard reliable information from independent, neutral experts and activists from different nationalities who have witnessed the situation in Syria since the beginning of the terrorist war that my country has suffered over the past eight years.

The reality that may not be known is that since the suspicious activities of the so-called “White Helmets” in Syria have begun, we have provided the Secretary General and the Presidents of Security Council with solid information about the background of these groups and the real objectives that led Western intelligence agencies to establish and fund them, Under the guise of human activities on the ground in Syria.

I do not reveal a secret, and perhaps I do, when I say that many distinguished permanent representatives to the Security Council told me in closed chambers, that those parties who you sent identical letters to are well aware that “White Helmets” is the propaganda arm of terrorist armed groups in Syria, particularly “Al-Nusrah Front” or what has become known as” Hayaat Tahrir Al-Sham“, but none of these parties will recognize this fact publicly. Simply, because this fact will expose the involvement of British, Turkish and Israeli intelligence agencies and other intelligence agencies and governments in supporting, funding and justifying terrorism in Syria by many means, including promoting terrorists who secretly carry weapons to kill innocents, and publicly wear white helmets, while allied media cameras try to fabricate and portray tales of fake tournaments of the so-called “White Helmets”.

I will particularly refer to the false accusations against my Government of using toxic chemicals against civilians. You might be aware that we have sent since 2013 more than 160 identical letters to the Secretary-General and the Presidents of the Security Council, which reveal credible information about the intention of terrorist armed groups to use toxic chemicals and poisonous gases against Syrian civilians in several areas, or to fabricate such incidents and prepare staged plays in which victims fall and suffocate, while members of the so-called “White Helmets” are the only witnesses and rescuers on the scene. Needless to tell you that the main purpose of such brutal acts is to accuse the Syrian Government of committing it, to justify military aggressions against Syria and bring interference that is more destructive in its affairs.

On many occasions, the Secretary-General and the Presidents of the Security Council have been informed by us that those who prepare and fabricate toxic chemical incidents are the “White Helmets” and that those involved in these dirty operations are elements of the intelligence apparatus of well-known Governments that support terrorism in Syria to this day, in the presence of specific and selected media which is still participating in propaganda campaigns for terrorism, and in counterfeiting the truth and distorting the image and position of the Syrian government and its allies in the war on terror, even if the cost was lives of innocent civilians.

In conclusion, what Syria has been subjected to over the past eight years was unprecedented in the history of humanity or in the history of international relations. Some governments have been and are still willing to pay billions of dollars to invest in terrorism, in order to destroy Syria and spread chaos. Moreover, same governments have been and still are willing to use a fake pretext of counter-terrorism to attack Syria and destroy entire cities, and the cities of Al-Raqqa and Ain Al Arab will remain a witness to the brutality and criminality of the so-called “International Coalition”.

Above all, these same governments have been and are still willing to exploit the noble humanitarian goals to promote terrorists. They do not hesitate to use chemical weapons against Syrian civilians and kill them until the “White Helmets” come to the scene and deceive world public opinion solely to distort the image of the Syrian Government and exert more pressure on it

I call upon you to deeply think in what you have heard and read today and the days before about the real motives behind the establishment of the so-called “White Helmets”, and to also keep in mind that 429 of its members were recently smuggled in one night to Israel and from there to Jordan and from there to vanish in a number of Western countries which their governments were financing this suspicious group. These governments will strive to hide the truth so no one can reveal or trace the involvement of the “White Helmets” in using chemical weapons against the Syrians.

The remnants of the “White Helmets” are present today in Idlib along with the terrorists of “Al-Nusrah Front“, and remember that they will also vanish when their role ends after liberating Idlib from terrorism, but what we really fear is that this dirty role will not end before the “White Helmets” commit with their operators and partners more crimes against Syrians.
