Syrian Military Expert: US Attempts to Help Terrorists Survive Idlib Operations
Colonel Mar’ei Hamdan said that the terrorists have transferred mustard gas to Idlib, adding that they are to use the gas in a false-flag operation in a bid to accuse the Damascus government of a chemical attack.
He added that the terrorists in Idlib coordinate these operations with their main supporter, the US, in a bid to frame the Syrian army and push the army plan for Idlib into failure.
Hamdan said that given the fact that the Idlib operations will be the last major anti-terrorism battle in Syria, the US who attempts to maintain the status quo for a foreseeable future, is trying to block the Syrian army’s military operations or lead it into failure after the start.
On Saturday, the Russian defense ministry announced that militants in Syria’s Idlib have transported several canisters containing chlorine to the village of Bsanqul, apparently preparing to stage a false flag chemical attack.
The chlorine-filled canisters were delivered by the Al-Qaeda-affiliated militants of Tahrir al Sham, formerly known as Al-Nusra Front, a spokesman of the Russian Center for Reconciliation in Syria, Lieutenant General Vladimir Savchenko, said in a statement.
He added that the latest developments showed that the militants are preparing for a false flag attack that would be used to accuse the Syrian government of using chemical weapons against its people.
This is the latest warning from the Russian military on what it says is a chemical “provocation” in the making. On Wednesday, it noted that the White Helmets group has shot videos intended to be used in framing the Syrian government. Earlier, the MoD stated that toxic chemicals had been delivered Idlib and accused the White Helmets of carrying out the delivery.
