oh my god. James le Mesurier, who helped start and train the White Helmets, has been found dead near his home in Istanbul, just days after the Russian foreign ministry falsely accused him of being a spy. This is horrific. I am at a loss for words.
more details here: the cause of death is unknown, but Le Mesurier is believed to have fallen from a balcony, reports. This comes three days after he was called a spy by Russia’s foreign ministry
“The police have yet to confirm how Mr Mesurier died, but he is believed to have fallen from the balcony of his apartment in the Turkish city at dawn on Monday.”
How do you know you left a legacy? You get targeted by Russian/Assad trolls and bots, even after your death. Respect to James, whom I worked with many times, and who's contributions to saving lives in Syria and exposing crimes are to be remembered! RIP
It's amazing he lasted as long as he did. He did noble, heroic work. May the name of James le Mesurier be honored in history. The White Helmets are subjected to relentless Kremlin opposition. I believe they should win the Nobel Peace Prize.
I remember when some American leftists spread the rumor that the White Helmets were an Al-Qaeda-affiliated group British trainer behind the White Helmets found dead in Istanbul
