After accusing Damascus of another chemical attack on rebel fighters earlier this week, the US State Department said it had seen evidence “consistent” with that narrative. The spokesperson said investigations were ongoing.

“We do have numerous sources including interviews with those present during the attack that did report that a number of opposition fighters were taken to local hospitals and presented symptoms that were consistent with chemical exposure,” US State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus told reporters Thursday.

“We don’t have any definitive conclusions yet as we continue to investigate,” she said.

Oddly enough, the ‘opposition’ fighters in the Latakia Governorate town of Kabani, where they claimed the chemical weapons attack occurred, are mostly jihadists from Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and the Turkestan Islamic Party.

Again the same old made up story. Again no one is asking why would Assad use CW’s when he has the upper hand and winning. Why would he jeopardise all he has achieved by using CW’s. And really who believes these falsehoods coming from notoriously dubious sources? Oh that’s right they want to still try and get rid of Assad so any false flag attack will do.

+++ ““We don’t have any definitive conclusions yet as we continue to investigate,” she said.” => Did you red? And well, they may have problems to find an investigator t go and get terrain samples in a Qaeda controlled zone, moreover, USA doing a CW retaliation strike on the behalf of Qaeda? Disastrous PR… Likely enough to get Trump impeached on treason grounds. The trap is enormous 😉 => If US were into getting rid from Assad, mark my words, he’d be pushing up the daisies for long now! US had 4 years to give him the same treatment Gaddafi… Read more »

It is cute that the Dep of State is the only source that disseminates fake news on chemical attacks in Syria. The US should fire all the journalists and hire insurgents’ isntead – it will make fake journalism much more effective!

The only willingness of the USA is to disturb Russia.
At every cost, even djihadists.
That will nice for Israel in a next future.
