Reports of possible chemical attacks in Syria have Moscow on alert

TASS reported on October 30 that there have been reports arising in Syria about possible chemical weapons attacks there. The government has called for steps to prevent these rumors from becoming reality, this according to the Russian foreign ministry.

“Alarming reports are coming from various sources that some terrorist and extremist groups in Syria never stop attempts at staging large-scale provocations with the use of chemical weapons and toxic agents,” the ministry said, adding that the Russian military also has such information.

According to the Russian foreign ministry, in case such a provocation is successful, all the blame would be placed on Syria’s legitimate authorities, following a traditional pattern. “Concurrently, claims would be laid to Russia and Iran that they allegedly connive at such crimes and must be held responsible,” the ministry stressed.

“It is absolutely obvious that extremists’ chemical provocations are geared to furnish foreign opponents of the legitimate government in Damascus with another pretext to stage aggressive actions like the illegal missile strikes delivered by the United States, the United Kingdom and France on Syria in April 2018, to frustrate efforts towards establishing political process, to slow down revival of the country and return of refugees and internally displaced persons to their homes. We cannot and must not let it happen.”

Sputnik News also reported on this matter on October 30th, adding that these attempts to create a false flag chemical attack are intended to undercut the recovery process of the war-torn nation. If a chemical attack happened, the usual pattern would incite the US and its allies to presume Russian / Syrian government guilt and then launch more strikes.

This happened in April of this year in a major strike launched by the US, Great Britain and France. Although the attack was apparently “managed” in such a way as to not damage anything significant (militarily speaking), getting hit with over one hundred missiles is no easy thing for anyone, and the Americans have been very quick to presume President Bashar al-Assad’s culpability without burden of proof.

Sputnik News writes:

The statement was made a day after the Russian Defense Ministry reported that White Helmets organization had arrived in the Syrian Aleppo province from Idlib to carry out a chemical weapons’ provocation. According to the military statement, the members of the organization were staging a staged video of a nuclear attack, involving local residents. The provocation was aimed to blame the Syrian government for “the use of toxic agents”.

Last week Lebanon’s Al-Mayadeen TV channel reported that militants and the White Helmets group transported toxic materials from the city of Jisr al-Shughur to the settlement of Khirbat al Amud in Syria’s Idlib province. The broadcaster didn’t specify what kind of poisonous substance had been relocated.

Reports of this effort have been circulating through the Middle Eastern and Russian presses since at least as far back as September. While no concrete action has been seen, the situation in Syria remains highly volatile. This combination of civil and internecine proxy war has decimated an otherwise peaceful country and sent refugees by the hundreds of thousands across Europe.

Zio/F-UK-US are majorly desperate to save their sicko terrorists – now more than ever – so a new false-flag chemical war crime is inevitable if not prevented by pro-democracy Syria and/or Russia.

If Syria is split up then you know you have been played and Putin is a Globalist shill
I don’t care if Russian Military made a deal with US Military to divide Syria so that WW3 is prevented….that’s playing into Israel’s hand…deals made with gangsters don’t have to be honoured…Putin must get rid of the Russian Mafia…arm his people….did-arm Israel
