The United Kingdom will “respond appropriately” if the alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria is confirmed, UK Prime Minister Theresa May said Wednesday.

“We condemn all use of chemical weapons, we are in close contact with the United States, we are monitoring the situation closely. And if any use of chemical weapons is confirmed we’ll respond appropriately”, May told the parliament.

The US Department of State claimed earlier in the day that there were “signs” that the Syrian government might be using chemical weapons.

The rhetoric followed a statement by Head of the Russian centre for Syrian reconciliation Maj. Gen. Viktor Kupchishin, who said that terrorists operating in the Idlib de-escalation zone possess significant amounts of poisonous substances with which they fill munitions to use in staged provocations aimed at accusing the Syrian army of “chemical attacks” against civilians.

This was not for the first time when Russia warned that terrorists operating in Syria continue to prepare chemical weapon provocations to accuse Damascus.

Last week, the Russian Defence Ministry said that al-Nusra Front* terror group was preparing to stage a false-flag provocation in Syria’s Idlib province as a means of framing the Russian Aerospace Forces.

The US and its allies have been accusing the Syrian government of being responsible for a series of alleged chemical attacks, particularly, an incident in the city of Douma on 7 April 2018, ignoring emerging evidence that that is could have been a false-flag operation by militants.

Last year, the United States, the United Kingdom and France used the allegations, spread by the controversial White Helmets, to justify airstrikes on Syria, without waiting for the results of an independent investigation.

The Syrian government denies any role in such attacks, emphasising that all of its chemical weapons’ arsenal had been destroyed years ago, with a UN body overseeing the process.

I think it’s a little more complicated… Let’s say that if these terrorists end hopeless, they will flee, then… It’s like metastasis… If Anglos make ’em believe they may end with western support, they will stay and the malign tumour will be dealt with thanks to Putin-Assad therapy… You should watch the “My Name Is Nobody” western-movie when Terence Hill narrates the story of the early bird felt from the nest during the winter 😉 Never guessed, while most of the roaches who went to Syria were all filed as much by their country as by Interpol, how could they… Read more »

Besides they are supplying weapons and god knows what else to them so why would they attack?

Al-Qaeda = bin-Laden + al-Zawahiri, right? Both were members of the Muslim Brotherhood. How the Muslim Brotherhood’s Israeli branch named? Hamas! The state of Israel is under al-Qaeda’s attack since 1948, pffff. What are ISIS? Al-Qaeda in Iraq+Syria, but they are rejects since al-Zawahiri ordered Zarqawi to stop attacking Shias while Zarqawi maintained that Shias are apostates deserving death. +++ “Besides they are supplying weapons” => Which weapons did they supplied? SANAA continuously said SAA seized Israeli weapons for 8 years, all they could show was a single white (!) grenade with Hebrew blue markings. I’ve spent 15 years in… Read more »

They have more brain and the technology then Dictator Assads and Irani Khameni.. More then half Assad Army have perished and defected. FSA, AQ, HTS, ISIS, Turkey, Rebels, Freedom Fighters and Terrorist. Every small or big player on ground hating Dictator Assad and all of those forces / entities killing fresh & unexperienced Assad’s soldiers in good numbers wherever & whenever they get chances.. And It can’t go forever you know. Addition to that, civilised world Rejects Dictator Assad’s Legitimacy due to his record of suppression, torture, crimes against humanity and mass displacements.

Where did you get your fake facts from?Put down those Doritos and koolaid and stop watching “faux news”, CNN,. Better yet go get an education because everything you said was from low intelligence sources that drip feeds imbeciles and brain dead sheeple with fake news. Or better yet stop been a troller for Israel. Male prostitution pays better so I heard. Israel government officials need you to satisfy their needs.

Everyday we hear reports AKA this group killed Assadi, that group killed Assadi that party beheaded Assadi soldiers that group ambushed Assadi soldiers etc etc is enough to understand. FSA, Turkish, HTS, NDF, LWS, ISIS, Rebel groups, Mujahideen Groups, Freedom Fighters group, Terrorist Group, every small or big group good or bad force or entity involved in Syrian conflict Hating and attacking Dictator Assad soldiers Whenever and wherever they get chance. I know most people here don’t want to listen the truth but truth is that UK forces are more clever safe and sound while Assadi unexperienced soldiers getting killed… Read more »

@Danny, where did they (FSA, Turkish, HTS, NDF, LWS, ISIS, Rebel groups, Mujahideen Groups, Freedom Fighters group…) all get weapons to commit fitna and to murder Assad’s soldiers?

They are a bunch of foreign mercenaries.

The Friends of Syria cabal committed 8 years breach of A/RES/2625(XXV) = Declaration on Principles of International Law concerning Friendly Relations and Co-operation among States in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations. And the unprovoked Allied rocket attacks with no UNSC endorsement were illegal acts of aggression that contradicted the UN Charter and its principles.

Danny : Pompeo recently sad that US were ready to support Assad’s presidency would he throw Hezb and Iran under the bus… Moreover, he needs US+EU for a Marshall plan and he knows it… “Addition to that, civilised world Rejects Dictator Assad’s Legitimacy due to his record of suppression, torture, crimes against humanity and mass displacements.” => Sorry, but USA or UK see no problem at delivering weapons to dictatorships worst than Bashar’s one!

They will give up then, hey, Nusra=Qaeda… You’ll end with many thousands doing lone-wolf attacks everywhere… So, if they think they may get western help, well, they’ll stay until SAA will have near killed them all.

Ya hay una mala experiencia pasada, EE.UU. y sus aliados inventaron sobre armas química en Irak hasta ahora nunca se confirmó.
Por lo visto EE.UU. y Gran Bretaña quieren ayuda a Al-qaeda, pregunto ¿Dónde quedó la torres gemelas?, los ciudadanos de estos dos gobiernos parece que siguen durmiendo quienes son los responsables de llevar terrorismo. Hasta ya puedo afirmar que la de torres gemelas es autoatentado.

“dead Templar”? You must watch too much mangas! Only a part of the roof has burnt! The part with the arrow, at the center of the cross : 800 years old dry oak wood in the roof’s superstructure, it burns easily. And only a part of the roof took fire. 7 other cathedrals ended with the same issues. The NDdP’s frame was nicknamed “the forest” : http://hermetism.free.fr/images/cathedrale_Notre-Dame_fleche_5.jpg Mark well my words : If ever it happens, especially since many in the mussi-sphere rejoiced, that it was a mussie who set the roof on fire, especially since some ISIS roaches already… Read more »

REALLY DOES UK US AND FRANCE REALLY THINK ASSAD AND THE WORLD IS THAT STUPID?
HOW ABOUT THESE a*s HOLES WILL DO SOME INVESTIGATION BEFORE THEY ATTACK SYRIA. OR MAYBE THEY DON’T WANT TO INVESTIGATE BECAUSE EVERYTHING WILL POINT OUT TO UK
IT IS TIME FOR EVERYBODY TO GET THE h**l OUT OF SYRIA AND LET THE SYRIAN GOVERNMENT AND PEOPLE REBUILD AND GO BACK TO THEIR NORMAL LIVES.
