Early lifeEdit

Susli was born in Damascus, moving to Australia as a child.[4]

War in SyriaEdit

Susli has made a series of video and social media commentaries on the war in Syria, designated an "international conflict" by the International Red Cross.[5] Along with Theodore Postol, she rejected the claims that the Syrian Government used chemical weapons of any sort.[3] In a YouTube video, she referred to evidence posted by Postol, suggesting that the 2017 Khan Shaykhun chemical attack, alleged to have killed 74 people, was not the work of the Assad government.[6][3] Seymour Hersh, in defence of Postol, insisted: "He talked to her once on one thing".[7]She has been called a "Kardashian Look-Alike Trolling for Assad".[2] Susli rejected a description of her in The Guardian newspaper as a "Russian bot"; the paper subsequently amended its article to replace the term 'Russian bot' with 'account'.[8]
