A mysterious pattern seen in the clouds over war-torn Syria has been used as evidence of weather control, conspiracy theorists have claimed.
Mobile phone footage shared by Ahmad on Twitter shows a thin layer of smoke moving upwards as if an invisible aircraft flies past.
The stripe-like pattern continues for a few seconds before it disappears in the mid-air.
Ahmad, who claimed to be an activist to deliver the voice of Syrians on Twitter, shared the video on February 3 and said: “Electromagnetic interference in the southern countryside of Aleppo, whose source has not yet been determined.”
He later shared a tweet that claimed military convoys carrying electronic warfare equipment have entered the region.
The post read: “Five large military convoys have entered the Idlib and West Aleppo regions, including Turkish Armed Forces tanks, armored personnel carriers, CHRAs, low-altitude air defense equipment and electronic warfare equipment.
“Convoys reached Western Aleppo.”
Many online though pointed out he would not be able to use his phone if an EMP had been detonated.
It has since been shared by conspiracy channel Disclose Screen where many of his followers reached a different conclusion, suggesting it was proof of HAARP.
HAARP, short for High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program, is a cutting edge transmitter facility used to study the properties and behaviour of the ionosphere, located in Alaska.
But the military-funded programme only operated for seven years and was shut down in 2014.
For years conspiracy theorists have speculated that the US government is using HAARP to control the weather, an allegation that’s been repeatedly denied by officials and scientists.
One viewer raised the question and asked: “Could this be HAARP? It uses frequencies to push up the ionosphere and then slams it back into the Earth.”
Another one said: “Has to be HAARP.”
But there were divided opinions as one said the phenomenon was due to explosions.
“Looks like the compression wave from explosions. Reason why is you can hear some explosions in the background,” one said.
A second one commented: “Weather balloon filled with swamp gas reflecting moonlight onto fishing boats.”
