The Russian Defense Ministry has accused the United States, the United Kingdom and France of preparing to carry out new strikes against Syria under the pretext of chemical weapons use by the Syrian government forces.

“The Western countries’ actions in spite of their public statements are aimed at another sharp deterioration of the situation in the Middle East region and the disruption of the peace process on the territory of Syria,” ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov noted.

According to the spokesman, militants in the Idlib province are preparing to stage the use of chemical weapons against civilians by the government.

“To carry out the alleged “chemical attack” in the city of Jisr al-Shughur in the province of Idlib, the Tahrir al-Sham group (affiliated with the Jabhat Nusra* terror organization) militants had delivered 8 tankers with chlorine… to a village a few kilometers from Jisr al-Shughur,” the general stated.

For this purpose, USS The Sullivans destroyer with 56 cruise missiles on board arrived in the Persian Gulf several days ago, while a US В-1В bomber carrying 24 air-to-surface AGM-158 JASSM cruise missiles was deployed at Al Udeid air base in Qatar, the spokesman suggested.

“This provocation with the active participation of the British special services will serve as another pretext for the US, UK and France to conduct a missile strike on the Syrian government and economic facilities,” Konashenkov said.

A group of militants trained under the guidance by British private military company Olive to work with poisonous substances has arrived in Idlib, the ministry said.

“The militants are tasked with imitating the rescue of the victims of chemical weapons’ use in the vestments of the notorious White Helmets,” Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov noted.

According to Konashenkov, “unfounded” statements vowing to respond to chemical weapons’ use by the Syrian government made by a number of high-ranking representatives of the US, UK and France serve as indirect evidence of the preparation of another “act of aggression against Syria by the United States and its allies.”

On August 23, National Security Adviser John Bolton reportedly told Russian Secretary of the Security Council Nikolai Patrushev that America is prepared to respond with the greater force it has used in Syria before.

The US, UK, and France coordinated a massive airstrike on Syria in April 2018 after the alleged use of the chemical weapons in Douma had been reported by the controversial “White Helmets” NGO, which has repeatedly been caught staging false flag attacks.

However, OPCW experts announced in July they had found traces of organic substances containing chlorine, reportedly used in the attack in Douma. Yet there was no evidence that nerve agents had been used in the attack.

The first Western missile attack on Syrian government forces was conducted by the United States on April 7 after Washington had accused Damascus of being behind the alleged chemical weapons use in the settlement of Khan Sheikhoun in the Idlib province.

Damascus has strongly denied the claims, with President Bashar Al-Assad saying that the attack was a provocation aimed to justify the US strike on Syria.

So the USA, UK and France they moved the “White Helmets” with their “mummy bandages”, tomato ketchup, video recorders, Apple computers, and Final Cut Pro software from the Golan Heights to Idlib???

It is a smoke screen to alenate the general public from the latest heinous genocide committed by the Zionist tyranny in Gaza when the Zio/Nazis bombed a UN run school murdering over 30 children. Every previous attack on Syria coincided with genocides committed by the Zio/Nazi tyranny against Palestinians.

It is time for Russia to declare that such a False Flag will have great and swift cost to the Empire of Chaos.

I doubt that Russia will do that, but should one of their missiles accidentally fall near the Russian base, say after EW has disabled their guidance…all bets will be off. Putin has already declared what the consequences would be and I don’t think he bluffs. This could turn into something far bigger than the west realizes. Then again, that is what they have been pushing for all along. Who knows they might target the Russian base, then deny it. They are just about that stupid…and desperate. I wish for Bolton to have the same ailment as his criminal in arms,… Read more »

Same ole theater. Same actors. Same scenario. Even they know WE (the majority) don’t believe them any more they don’t care. Just because WE (the majority) cannot do anything to stop them and their false reasons to bomb a sovereign country. Sure, they believe this will continue forever… Until next Hitler rise up and kill them ALL this time…

The Response of Russia to any deliberate and Machiavellian false flag act perpetrated by the US Coalition of T£rror would have to be swift and also one that would inflict much pain on the coalition.

This page terror playbook has been used to so often now because the Chief Terrorists have not been bought to account.

The time has now come when they must be .

I hope the Russians have an answer for this. Will they stand on the sidelines during this attack?…or will they quietly aid Syria? I don’t see them allowing all the work they’ve done to be unraveled. However this turns out, the west is responsible. Not that that will be of any consequence as far as the world community is concerned. The French are especially despicable, after acting as though they are the voice of moderation, to be involved in this. Thank god they are as inept as they are. The US and UK were never any doubt, they are the… Read more »
