Washington The US State Department has approved the allocation of additional millions of dollars to terrorists of the so-called White Helmets linked to Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organization in Syria.
Last June, Syria condemned the US decision to provide $ 6.6 million as a financial aid to the terrorist organization and stressed that the additional financial support was a clear piece of evidence that Washington, France, Britain and other states have been baking the multi-forms of terrorism witnessed by Syria since 2011.
The United States intends to provide $5 million for the continuation of the operations of the White Helmets in Syria and in support of the UN's International, Impartial and Independent Mechanism, The US State Department said in a statement quoted by Sputnik agency Thursday.
The decision was taken by US President Donald Trump and should be approved by Congress.
The White Helmets organization was established in Turkey in 2013 by British, American and western funding; the scope of the organization's members work only in the places of spreading the terrorist organizations has raised many question marks.
Last July, after fulfilling the destructive role entrusted to them, the Israeli occupation entity carried out a secret night operation in which 800 members of the so-called White Helmets and their families were evacuated from southern Syria to Jordan to be rehomed in the United States, Canada, Britain, France and in Germany.
Several documents were found by the Syrian Arab Army in the areas liberated from terrorism where the White Helmets members were operating; these documents unveiled the organization's strong connection with and support to terrorist organizations, especially Jabhat al-Nusra and their role in staging false-flag chemical attacks on civilians, as happened in Eastern Ghouta in Damascus countryside, to accuse Syrian Arab Army.
