BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:20 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels are preparing provocations with the use of chemical weapons in order to frame the Syrian government, the Russian Ministry of Defense said on Saturday morning.

The provocations are being prepared by the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (former Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham and Jabhat Al-Nusra) in the Idlib province, the  Russian Defense Ministry spokesman, Major General Igor Konashenkov, said.

The attack would be used as a pretext for US, UK and French airstrikes on Syrian targets, Konashenkov added. USS ‘The Sullivans,’ an Arleigh Burke-class Aegis guided missile destroyer, has already been deployed in the Persian Gulf a couple of days ago, he said.

The destroyer has 56 cruise missiles on board, according to data from the Russian Defence Ministry.

No further details were provided regarding this alleged provocation.

The Russian Ministry of Defense made a similar claim during the East Ghouta offensive; however, the U.S. and its allies disregarded their reports in order to attack Damascus.

This claim comes as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies prepare to kickoff their long-awaited offensive in the Latakia, Idlib, and Hama governorates.

Russia-Syria-Iran-Hezbolah must be prepared for USA-NATO attack (do not sleep and overestimate your enemy). We all hope that Russia aerospace force be totally ready for any power defense or attack required.
