Israel told US officials of its plan to illegally attack Syria

Trump is preparing to meet his new national security advisor John Bolton to discuss Syria strategy.

Using the cover of another Deep State/Al Qaeda initiated chemical weapons false flag, Israel launched an illegal airstrike against Syria’s T-4 airbase late Sunday night.

It should come as no surprise to anyone who reads The Duran, that NBC News has now confirmed American officials had been informed of the impending strike by Israel.

The stage is now being set for Israel, and John Bolton, to goad Trump into launching a devastating, destructive war, that may eventually lead to a US-Russia showdown.

The pre-dawn attack was intended as retaliation for a poison gas attack on the last rebel stronghold near Damascus. That attack has been blamed (with no supporting evidence) on the Syrian regime.

Since 2012, Israel has launched more than 100 airstrikes on Syrian territory. Israel had previously struck the T-4 base in February after an Iranian drone purportedly violated Israeli airspace.

The T-4 base is near the Shayrat air base, which the US struck with nearly 60 tomahawk cruise missiles last year in response to another chemical attack that was blamed on the Syrian government (again, with no evidence).

President Trump threatened both “animal Assad” and Putin following the attack, saying there would be a “big price to pay” for masterminding the attack.

Trump is preparing to meet with senior military leaders and his new national security advisor – the infamously hawkish John Bolton – to discuss the administration’s Syria strategy.

Meanwhile, Assad’s government has denied any involvement in the chemical strike.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov called reports of the attack a “provocation.” The Russian military says it found no evidence of chemicals weapons used at the scene of the purported gas attack.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights confirmed with its network of activists on the ground that 14 peopled had died during the strike, including Iranians and three Syrian officers.

Rami Abdurrahman, head of theObservatory, said the strike targeted a mobile air defense unit and some buildings inside the base.

The missiles also struck outposts near the base that have been used by Iranian soldiers.

News that the US knew of – and therefor tacitly approved of – the Israeli strikes will only serve to further strain relations between the US and Russia, which have officially deteriorated to their worst state since the Cold War.

And it also begs the question: How will Syria and Russia react?
