The Arabic-language al-Mayadeen TV channel quoted a well-informed source in Jisr al-Shughour as disclosing that the White Helmets are planning to transfer a large volume of poisonous materials to Qala al-Maziq and Kafr Naboudeh in Northern Hama as requested by their foreign backers.
It went on to say that the terrorists and the White Helmets are planning to make a ten-minute video of a fake chemical attack to send two copeis of the video to the United Nations, adding that a meeting which was to be held over the release of the video of the fake chemical attack has been postponed.
On Tuesday, the Russian Defense Ministry reported on the terrorists’ plan to film a false-flag chemical attack in Idlib province to raise allegation on the Damascus forces.
As the Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation reported on Tuesday, all the fake footage of “chemical attacks”, designed to facilitate the implication of Syrian government forces, was expected to be sent to different TV channels.
“According to the information received from inhabitants of Idlib province, militants are now filming a staged provocation in the city of Jisr al-Shughour, where “chemical weapons” are depicted as being used by the Syrian army against civilians. The film crews of several Middle Eastern TV channels arrived in Jisr al-Shughour in the morning, as well as the regional affiliate of one of the main American television news networks”, the Reconciliation Center said, Sputnik reported.
The Russian military added that the militants had brought two containers with chlorine-based toxic substance to Jisr al-Shughour to make provocation seem “natural”.
“The plot envisages staged scenes showing ‘activists’ of the Civil Defense (“White Helmets”) ‘helping’ the residents of Jisr al-Shughour after the Syrian army allegedly used the so-called barrel bombs with poisonous substances,” the center noted.
According to the center, all videos of provocations shot in Jisr al-Shughour will be handed to broadcasters by the end of the day after being released in social media.
The information followed the Sunday’s report by the Wall Street Journal, saying that the US Defense Department might be mulling the idea of striking Russian or Iranian military forces aiding the Syrian government if they were to launch an assault on Idlib. The report added that the United States would specifically decide whether to strike Russian air defense installations.
Meanwhile, the Syrian government has pledged to drive the remaining terrorists out of Idlib and has begun taking steps toward full-scale military operations in the territory.
The Russian Ministry of Defense warned about the forthcoming false flag provocation, which will involve a staged chlorine gas attack, in late August. Later, the defense ministry said that the results of this provocation could be used by the Western coalition forces as an excuse to launch another missile strike against the Syrian government. The United States, the Russian Defense Ministry noted, has been deploying the relevant forces to Syria. In late August, the American destroyer USS The Sullivans arrived in the Persian Gulf carrying 56 cruise missiles, and a US Air Force B-1B strategic bomber, equipped with 24 air-to-surface JASSM cruise missiles, was redeployed to El-Udeid Airbase in Qatar.
This is not the first time the coalition forces strike the Syrian government positions, citing alleged chemical attacks by the government forces. Thus, on April 14, the United States, the United Kingdom and France launched over 100 missiles on multiple targets in Syria in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack in the Eastern Ghouta city of Douma that reportedly took place on April 7. The Syrian government has denied using chemical weapons and said that the Jeish al-Islam terror group staged the attack to justify foreign intervention in the country.
