The evidence supports a managed massacre as the most likely explanation of the Douma incident. We cannot say who carried out the massacre. People dressed as White Helmets were involved in dealing with the bodies of the victims.

However, they were careless enough to upload another video showing the same individuals as captives in their hands. Ursula was the first to spot this.

We have not stated that MI6 has been staging chemical attacks in Syria. We have noted that there is strong evidence that the Talmenes incident was staged, and that MI6 was involved in providing evidence to the FFM from this staged attack.

On Talmenes, we have strong evidence that the witness statements are false because they describe an event - a barrel bomb impact at Location #1 - the JIM's expert concluded couldn't have happened as described.

For Talmenes 2014 the FFM gives no information on witness selection. For Sarmin 2015 witnesses were selected by CVDCS/Same Justice.

We are still investigating the organizations reported to have identified witnesses

All witness statements, whatever medium they appear on, should be evaluated to weigh the evidence. In the case of the Douma hospital witnesses, we can compare their statements with what was shown in the video.

We have not made any such assertion. Our briefing note of 9 May 2018 cast doubt on the UK government’s argument that only Russia had a motive for the attack on the Skripals. Have a look.
