Syria says Israel’s evacuation of White Helmets was ‘criminal operation’

Syria’s Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said on Monday that “the criminal operation” carried out by Israel “has divulged the true nature” of the White Helmets organization. Israel “has always lied claiming that it doesn’t have a relation to the war waged on Syria, yet it has smuggled hundreds of members of the ‘White Helmets’ terrorist organization,” the statement added. The ministry said that it has become “unacceptable anymore to hold any meeting or discussions” at the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) or at any international organizations to discuss the “false allegations on the use of chemical weapons in Syria,” SANA reported.
