The Russian Defense Ministry is claiming that United States special forces are helping plot chemical attacks in Syria to provoke a violent attack against the Syrian government. The Russian MoD also claims it has “credible intelligence” that proves it.
News of an alleged chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma broke on April 7, with dramatic footage depicting people dousing crying children with water. The video quickly led to accusations that Syrian President Bashar Assad had ordered yet another “atrocity” against his own people. Two weeks later, however, a reporter from German public broadcaster ZDF spoke to locals who told him the whole event was “staged.” The world’s third-largest news agency AFP and British tabloid The Independent also visited the site and ran stories casting doubt on whether the chemical attack had taken place.
Eventually, a boy from the Douma “attack” video, who was initially believed to be a victim, as well as medical staff at the hospital testified at a Russia-backed conference at The Hague. They revealed that members of the controversial White Helmets group (known for red flags and propaganda) poured cold water over kids after faking panic over a “chemical attack” which never occurred, yet saw the US and its allies retaliate by bombing facilities in Syria.
Now, Russian intelligence is alleging the US special forces are helping to plot the next chemical attack in order to get the US to use military action against Bashar al-Assad. Often these types of red flags are necessary for the easily brainwashed American public to condone another war.
“Our intelligence confirmed by three independent Syrian sources says that commanders of the so-called ‘Free Syrian Army’, backed by the American Special Forces operators, are preparing a serious provocation involving chemical warfare agents in Deir ez-Zor province,” reads a statement released by Russian Defense Ministry, as reported by RT.
The Russian military alleges that the FSA (Free Syrian Army) militants are likely to employ chlorine to orchestrate the chemical incident. The manufactured chemical attack is said to be an attempt “to imitate yet another ‘chemical attack by the regime against peaceful civilians’, the rebels brought canisters filled with chlorine,” the statement said.
The set-up could then be distributed in Western media and serve as a pretext for renewed coalition airstrikes against Syrian government’s targets. The planned “provocation,” the Russian military said, is also to justify an FSA offensive against Syrian troops on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River.
The Defense Ministry earlier warned of such plans involving chemical weapons. On the latest occasion in March, Russian Reconciliation Center received a tip-off from a local resident who said possible preparations for a “provocation” with the use of chemical agents were underway in Eastern Ghouta. –RT
