BEX ALERT – The chemical proof that damns Assad: New pictures emerge of gas canister on roof of building where civilians were killed in Douma… as French ‘MI6’ dossier reveals 44 incidents of toxic agents used in combat
Britain and her allies yesterday presented overwhelming evidence to nail Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s brutal regime as the culprit in the horrific chemical attack on civilians which provoked yesterday’s wave of air strikes.
Compelling new details emerged from Paris as the French government presented a declassified report from its DGSE overseas intelligence service, the equivalent of MI6.
It came as Prime Minister Theresa May said all evidence pointed to Assad being behind the attack in Douma because:
Two Mi-8 ‘Hip’ helicopters from his regime were spotted above the city in the hours before the attack – none of the opposition forces has a helicopter.
A barrel bomb was used to deliver the chemicals – a weapon that the rebels do not use.
A yellow compressed-gas canister of a type known to have been used before by the Assad regime was photographed on the roof of a building where a large number of the dead were found.
