According to Wikipedia and Indie Wire, White Helmets are made up of around 3000 volunteers. See article “‘The White Helmets’: How the Stars Of Netflix’s Doc Are Making A Difference in Syria’s Civil War” and “White Helmets – (Syrian Civil War)”. According to Wikipedia’s article “White Helmets (Syrian Civil War)“, White Helmets operate in those parts of Syria and Turkey that are controlled by the opposition. According to Wikipedia’s article “Demographics of Syria“, Syrian areas that are under the control of the opposition have a population of millions—it is not a small region at all. So why does this really large region has only around 3000 volunteers for the White Helmets? Think of things this way. Its war! Women, teenagers, and even seniors are going to attempt to find those who are injured. But, in the White Helmets’ footage we see mostly men conducting the rescue operations; also there are really less women who are participating, which is happening around the time when so many countries have females in their armies. Furthermore, I find it very fishy that they are receiving so much media attention and have won the Alternative Nobel Prize (Right Livelihood Award); it feels like things are happening too fast at their end. Are they target of good news and propaganda because we are looking at fake news being portrayed by two parties that appear to be at opposite ends (foes)? Lastly, White Helmets has received lots of funds from America and only recently America is thinking of withdrawing their funds. But, America also created the Taliban. You know what I mean!

Obviously, something is wrong here. Even if we were to ignore all the other facts and lies, the total number of White Helmets still does not make any sense.
Who exactly is failing us here? Why did a couple of people manage to change White Helmets into a very controversial issue? Even some reputable Western humanitarian organizations and individuals are struggling to make sense out of or backing the White Helmets! Where is the truth that people deserve to hear?
