Israel Evacuates White Helmets From Syria - Reports

 White Helmets
Israel evacuated nearly 800 White Helmets personnel and their families from the southwest of Syria to Jordan, where they will later be transported to Great Britan, Canada, and Germany, Bild reported.

The evacuation reportedly began at 9:30 p.m. local time on Saturday evening, when the United Nations assisted the White Helmets personnel to cross safely into the contested Syria's region of Golan Heights.

According to the Bild, the evacuation was negotiated between the United States, Russia and the Syrian authorities.


  1. Trump, Trudeau requested Israeli help in evacuating White Helmets – Netanyahu...

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Canada and the US had requested Israel’s help in evacuating a contingent of White Helmets from Syria, in a statement issued from Jerusalem on Sunday.

    “In the last few days, United States President Donald Trump, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and several others asked for our help in assisting hundreds of Syrian “White Helmets,” Netanyahu said.

    He stated that the White Helmets had found themselves in life-threatening danger.

    “I therefore permitted their transfer through Israel to additional countries, as an important humanitarian step,” stated the Israeli prime minister.

  2. “We conducted this life-saving mission at the request of the US, Canada, and EU countries,” the IDF wrote on its Twitter account.

    Buried in the end of the piece is the revelation that Israel helped evacuate so-called “rebel commanders” as they also flew out members of the self-proclaimed “impartial” White Helmets organization.
    On August 22, Israel evacuated some 800 members of the White Helmets, a group funded by the United States, United Kingdom, Germany and other Western countries, that claims to be an impartial civil defense organization but has been accused by Syria and Russia of terrorism. Its members have been caught on video grinning wildly as a child nearby was being beheaded in addition to other atrocities, while a high-budget film about the group won the 2017 Academy Award for best documentary.

    But as the White Helmets and members of their immediate families were evacuated from southern Syria as the government was liberating it from jihadists, so too were "rebel commanders" and their families, according to Foreign Policy.

  5. The removal of a Jerusalem Post article that clearly noted the Israeli military had supplied Islamist rebels in Syria with weapons and funds is just "the tip of the iceberg," journalist and filmmaker Dan Cohen told Sputnik.

  6. The United Nations Security Council will hold closed-dorr consultations on the situation in Syria’s Idlib later in the week, a UN source told TASS on Wednesday...

    "Great Britain and France have requested a closed meeting before the end of the week. Vietnam as the Security Council chair in January has ruled to satisfy this request," the source said, adding that the exact day has not yet been appointed.

    Syria’s government army launched an offensive on December 19 and by now has liberated 46 settlements in the southern part of Idlib. The army command says a territory of more than 320 square kilometers has been cleared of terrorists.

    The Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organization (outlawed in Russia) and its affiliates are now controlling most of this governorate in the northwest of Syria. According to the al-Ahbar newspaper, al-Nusra is supported by pro-Turkish armed opposition groups. They have pulled extra forces in Idlid from Afrin and Jeralbus.

    Idlib is the only large Syrian region that is still controlled by illegal armed groups. A norther de-escalation zone was set up in Idlib in 2017 to give shelter to militants and their families who were reluctant to voluntarily surrender arms in Eastern Ghouta and in Syria’s southern regions. Twelve Turkish observation stations are operating in the Idlib governorate.
