Israel Uses Bogus UN Report to Justify Illegal Attack on Syrian Arab Army (AE video)

Israel has launched an attack on the SAA using the bogus report from the International Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic as justification.

The report dusts off the old chestnut of Khan Sheikhoun sarin gas attack. The “report” is a complete fabrication based ENTIRELY on al Qaeda-linked terrorist “witnesses” and Britain’s White Helmets propaganda vehicle who USED TO BE CALLED “the Islamic State Fire Brigade”

Jabhat al-Nusra was led by Syrian jihadist Abu Mohammad al-Jawlani.

The United States put the group on its terrorist list in 2012, as the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda, and Canada followed suit.

Al-Baghdadi soon crossed into Syria himself, renouncing his allegiance to al-Qaeda and founding ISIS in April 2013…
