BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:30 A.M.) – The Russian Reconciliation Center has accused the rebel forces in the Idlib Governorate of picking out actors for a future staged chemical weapons attack.

“Militants have selected 22 children with their parents from the communities of Zitan, Zerbeh and Birnah in the Aleppo Governorate for participation in staged chemical attacks. One more group of orphans abducted from refugee camps and intended for the filming of lethal scenes is being kept in a cell in the al-Iqab prison controlled by the terror group Jabhat al-Nusra,” the Center reported, as quoted by the Tass News Agency.

“White Helmets and terrorists are preparing for the real use of chlorine-based toxic agents against the civilian footage participants in order to later accuse the Syrian army of the attack,” the center said.

“Irrefutable information at our disposal says that yesterday, on September 11, the camera crews of a number of Middle East based TV channels and a regional affiliation of a US channel filmed nine sham scenes alleging the use of chemical warfare agents by Syrian troops against civilians,” the Russian military added.

The Russian Ambassador to the United Nations, Vasily Nebenzya, made similar allegations during a Security Council session on Tuesday.

According to Nebenzya, the Syrian and Russian spies in the Idlib Governorate have been monitoring the situation and have been providing daily reports about the rebel movements.

On Wednesday, U.S. Secretary of Defense, James Mattis, said that Russia had “zero evidence” proving that the Syrian opposition has the capabilities of making chemical weapons.

Thus far, it has been a war of words between Moscow and Washington, as both sides continue to accuse one another of preparing to use chemical weapons in the Idlib Governorate.
