The US and its allies are not preparing any provocations with chemical weapons in Syria, US State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert said on Wednesday.

She commented on the statement by Russian Defense Ministry Spokesman Igor Konashenkov.

The Russian Defense Ministry is “falsely claiming U.S. forces and the Free Syrian Army preparing a staged chemical weapons attack in Syria,” Nauert wrote in Twitter.

“While Russia used nerve agent in Salisbury and shields Assad from accountability for repeated CW attacks in Syria, we abide by the Chemical Weapons Convention,” she said.

On Monday, Konashenkov told reporters that the militants of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) with the participation of the US special operations units are preparing a provocation involving chloride in the Syrian Deir ez-Zor province to provide an opportunity for the US-led coalition of a new attack on the country’s state facilities.

According to Konashenkov, FSA militants have delivered chlorine cylinders to the Syrian Deir ez-Zor province to simulate another “chemical attack against civilians.” “After being published in western media a staged video is set to initiate a missile strike on Syria’s state facilities by the US-led coalition and justify an offensive operation by militants against Syrian governmental forces on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River,” he said, adding that Russia’s Defense Ministry warns that the use of such provocations for destabilization of the environment on the Syrian territory is unacceptable.

In April, some non-governmental organizations, including White Helmets, claimed that chemical weapons were used in Douma, Eastern Ghouta, on April 7. According to the statement uploaded to the organization’s website on April 8, chlorine bombs were dropped on the city to kill dozens and poison other local civilians who had to be brought to hospital.

The Russian foreign ministry dismissed that as fake news. The Russian defense ministry stated that White Helmets were an unreliable source, notorious for disseminating falsehoods. The Russian center for the reconciliation of conflicting parties on April 9 examined Douma to find no traces of chemical weapons. However, on April 14, the US, the UK and France, using unconfirmed information about the chemical attack as an excuse, carried a massive strike on Syria without the sanction of the UN Security Council.

They’re not telling lies : White Helmets are a joint UK/Qatar crapaganda asset, it’s not the Yanks doing this s**t! As any UK partners, they believed the lies of the Perfidious Albion and were deceived! e.g. the Rothschilds paid for full Palestine = Israel+Jordan, then the Brits sold it a 2nd time to the Hashemites and then deprived the Jews of 77% of the land they paid for, and the Hashemites of 23% of what they paid for, then the Brits imported hundred of thousands Arabs into Jewish Palestine between 1922 and 1948 to create troubles and avoid independence as… Read more »

The US will still blame President Assad personally though.
I agree that it is all rather silly but the US population as a whole is gullible enough to believe that Pigs can Fly if the US Military ‘heroes’ say they can.

If the US/NATO can prevail in Syria ,the Western history books will paint the ‘reality’ of the victor as always.

If the US/NATO does not prevail the demise of the controlling Zionist Elites within the Western powers and vassal states such as Saudi Arabia will be greatly advanced.

I am confident the latter will be the case 🙂

Sad for the interests of your UK : al-Sauds are the #1 clients for your military industrial complex. Brexit looks more and more grim to you, don’t hope EU to save you from bankruptcy like in 1973 again… “If the US/NATO can prevail in Syria ,the Western history books will paint the ‘reality’ of the victor as always” => So do all ‘official’ history books anywhere, and even some “religious” ones like Quran. “US population as a whole is gullible enough to believe that Pigs can Fly if the US Military ‘heroes’ say they can.” => Pigs really can fly!… Read more »
