The US envoy for Syria stated on Thursday that the Syrian government forces preparing to use chemical weapons in the Idlib province.

“I am very sure that we have very, very good grounds to be making these warnings,” said Jim Jeffrey, who was named on Aug. 17 as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s special adviser on Syria overseeing talks on a political transition in that country.

According to the Reuters news agency, the US has sufficient evidence to believe that a chemical weapons provocation will be carried out by the Syrian government forces.

“Any offensive is to us objectionable as a reckless escalation,” Jeffrey told reporters. 

“There is lots of evidence that chemical weapons are being prepared,” he added. 

Jeffrey’s comments come just days after the Russian Foreign Ministry accused the government of the United Kingdom of preparing to frame the Syrian troops of using chemical weapons.

@ n.md.148

The ‘proof’ as always is either classified or from unidentified sources 🙂
The US diplomats will continue to spew abject lies until they die.

Proof like the US had for the Iraqi Chemical arms that were the excuse to start a war of aggression against that nation?

p.s. If this Jim Jeffrey was a dog they would shot him for having rabies or take him into custody for being intoxicated.

“There is lots of evidence that chemical weapons are being prepared,” he added.

Of course there is; just ask the white helmets and other Jihadi terrorists holed up in Idlib. All for the benefit of the terrorist state of Israel.

Not so since these creeps in WH are Qatar/Turkey puppets (WH filming team = al-Jazeera personel), and you have serious Qatar lobbying on US and far more on UK which moreover needs to compensate the Brexit economical stupidity. The al-Udeir AFB is gigantic, it likely costed several billions of dollars, facilities are even bigger than Ramstein AFB, it’s probably the biggest US/UK overseas base. Now, if the Yanks, or more likely the Brits, since WH founder has all the characteristics of a MI6 operative, I think the idea beind another false flag will be to please Qatar. If you take… Read more »

This is a load of BS. The Russian Air Force and the SAA are doing just fine with good intell and smart weapons. No need for cleaning beach. You use that after bodies are removed.
You always get accusations like this from the usual suspects, the USA, Britain and France, when the SAA is about to launch a major campaign to recover Syrian territory. Zionist Israel doesn’t do stupid accusations like this but, being sneaky, merely hide behind the skirts of those aforementioned accusers and take the opportunity to hit at Syrian targets.

The experience says that such accusation is a credible evidence that the USA are preparing to use chemical weapons in Idlib.

“I am very sure that we have very, very good grounds to be making these warnings,” said Jim Jeffrey, who was named on Aug. 17 as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s special adviser on Syria overseeing talks on a political transition in that country. Well, reminds me of the highly credible intelligence the US had on Saddam’s WMDs, which Tony’whatever’ Blair claimed to have seen too. Jim’s statement prives that the US is on the verge of activating a falseflag through their distant cousins in Idlib to raise a pretext to bomb Syria. I am sure this time round Syria… Read more »

This Jeffrey is probably a faggot or a child raper or both. That’s how the top criminals keep their underlings in line these days – threats of blackmail and prison.

Nope, they don’t care!
They want Putin to use S-400 in order to totally probe its capabilities, radars, targetting, etc…
You’d be impressed by the number of ELINT/COMINT/SIGINT aircraft flying around!

I knew this would be coming. Would the US cancel their FF event since they were outed? h**l, no. Double down, it’s all they know and all they got to keep this war going. Then, to top it all off, Trumpet decides to back Israels theft of the Golan. The UN will be a useless toady and whine for a minute or two before forgetting all about it. They are going to go for broke, especially after some of their pets are captured and start to squeal…which the main reason for them to try to stop this clean-up by the… Read more »
