Proof that RT Fabricates Evidence

The following YouTube clip shows Assad-supported Matt Florence playing a clip from RT in which British-Syrian Dr. Rola Hallam is apparently heard to say:

DR. ROLA HALLAM: It’s just absolute chaos and carnage here. We’ve had a massive influx of what look like serious burns. It seems like it must be some sort of [napalm]. I’m not really sure. We don’t know what we’re dealing with.

Florence argues that the BBC altered the original audio to make Dr. Hallam attribute the injuries she witnessed to“chemical weapon” instead of “napalm.”

And here is an interview with the doctor heard in the clip being interviewed on DN! about the same clip, which she presents with the BBC-published audio:

The relevant quote (also in the video):

DR. ROLA HALLAM: It’s just absolute chaos and carnage here. We’ve had a massive influx of what look like serious burns. It seems like it must be some sort of chemical weapon. I’m not really sure. We don’t know what we’re dealing with.

But presumably the doctor who made the statement and presented the clip to DN! for use during her interview can be trusted.
