“This report does not differ from the previous mission reports filled with distorted facts,” the ministry said in a statement.
Syrian Foreign Ministry further pointed out to "the lack of professionalism of the authors of the report," thus, it said "it was easy for the Syrian specialists to discover that the OPCW experts were lying when claiming that they investigated the incident in the report from various aspects."
This comes after on 1 March, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) published a report by its fact-finding mission on the results of the investigation of the incident in the city of Douma in Eastern Ghouta on 7 April 2018, which claims that a toxic chemical, most likely chlorine, was used in the attack.
In response, the Russian Foreign Ministry said that the organisation had ignored the evidence provided by Russia and Syria, which confirmed that the attack had been staged by the White Helmets. The minister also expressed concern that the document sought to justify the subsequent foreign airstrikes in Syria.
