Russian diplomatic sources say the chemical weapons attack in the suburbs of Damascus was carried out by Saudi Arabian intelligence agents.
A Russian media outlet reported that the Ghouta attack in August was carried out by a Saudi black operations team. It said the black ops group is named Liwa Al-Islam and is headed by the son of a Saudi-based cleric. Political analysts say Saudi Arabia needed the false flag operation to provoke Washington to intervene in Syria. The U-S and its allies called the attack a game-changer in the Syria crisis.
