According to the doctor, the video is real. But the children suffered from hypoxia, not from a gas attack.
“I was with my family in the basement of my home three hundred metres from here on the night but all the doctors know what happened.
There was a lot of shelling [by government forces] and aircraft were always over Douma at night — but on this night, there was wind and huge dust clouds began to come into the basements and cellars where people lived.
People began to arrive here suffering from hypoxia, oxygen loss.
Then someone at the door, a ‘White Helmet’, shouted ‘Gas!’ and a panic began. People started throwing water over each other.
Yes, the video was filmed here, it is genuine, but what you see are people suffering from hypoxia – not gas poisoning.”
Robert Fisk’s account has just been corroborated by Pearson Sharp — conservative news network One America — who is also reporting from Douma, Syria.
