These false flag gas hoaxes are beginning to feel like a broken record.
Here is a report from Sunday night on Russia's main news channel accusing MI6 of plotting yet another false flag gas attack.
Full transcript below.
The Russian military Intel has a good track record on this. Earlier this year on March 20th the Russian MoD reported that militants in Eastern Ghouta were preparing a false flag. About three weeks later Syria was accused of using chemical weapons during an airstrike, for which it was subsequently bombed by American forces, egged on by a hysterical campaign in the pro-Israel US media. The accusation was later proven to be false.
These warnings about an incoming false flag in Syria should be taken seriously as the Russian military has accurately predicted “chemical attacks”
The Russian deputy foreign minister, Sergey Rybakov was scorching in his accusation of the US:
"The US is using armed terrorist groups and quasi-governmental organizations to organize provocations in the country. These organizations act ruthlessly, brutally, using poisonous substances.
Igor Konashenkov, the Russian MoD spokesperson, reports that the military observed Syrian rebel forces transporting 8 canisters loaded with Chlorine gas across Northern Syria with the intent of framing the Assad government of using such weapons. The rebels are believed to be disguising themselves as “White Helmets” humanitarian workers who will videotape their “rescue” of Syrian chemical attack victims, with the help of British intelligence services, to create a pretext for Western military intervention in Syria.
Eight canisters with chlorine and 80 cruise missiles are ready to stage a chemical provocation in the Syrian province of Idlib. It's the Russian Ministry of Defense that uncovered these plans. British intelligence agencies are embroiled in the preparation of this staging. The scenario is the same. The victims of the alleged chemical attack are allegedly saved White Helmets. And all this comes as another pretext for the US, Britain, and France to strike at state facilities in Syria.
The scenario is primitive and familiar. The Russian military declares that another provocation is being prepared in Syria: a staged chemical attack. The goal is the same — to accuse the Syrian government of using chemical weapons against civilians.
According to Igor Konashenkov, the Russian Ministry of Defense spokesperson, a specially trained group of Jabhat Al-Nusra fighters has already arrived in the province of Idlib. For the staging of the chemical attack, 8 containers with chlorine were delivered to the city of Jisr Al-Shughur in the north of Syria.
But the dangerous cargo was soon taken elsewhere. The chlorine was transported to the village of Haluz but judging by the pace of preparations for the provocative performance, it won't stay there for long.
Igor Konashenkov: "These fighters, disguised as the notorious White Helmets, are to imitate the rescue of those who allegedly suffered from chemical weapons. The implementation of this provocation, largely involving the British intelligence agencies will serve as another pretext for the US, Britain, and France's air strike against Syria's state and economic facilities".
The fact that the West is preparing a provocation is also implicitly proved by a number of statements made recently representatives from Washington, London, and Paris. They unanimously announced their intention to respond 'most vigorously' to the 'use of chemical weapons' by the Syrian government.
Although there are no prerequisites, just like in Khan Shaykhun in April 2017, when after an alleged chemical attack, the United States struck Syria's Shayrat Airbase. The investigation of the incident has not been completed so far. An even more fantastic story occurred in Douma in April 2018.
The notorious White Helmets reported a chemical attack in the south of Syria, which allegedly affected 70 people. In response, the United States, Britain, and France conducted a series of missile strikes on the positions of government troops.
And even when Syrian boy Hassan Diab, found by our military correspondent Yevgeny Poddubny in Douma, said that there had been no chemical attack and that the film with the victims had been forged, the West didn't apologize.
Semen Bagdasarov, director of the Center for the Middle East and Central Asian Studies: The government forces haven't had any chemical weapons for a long time. Then, there is the question of mopping up fighters in Idlib, including its northern part.
- Are they trying to hamper it?
Semen Bagdasarov, director of the Center for the Middle East and Central Asian Studies: Yes, to hamper and create the conditions for conducting air strikes against the government forces to frustrate the offensive.
While the Russian military is warning its Western colleagues, a US Navy destroyer has already arrived in the Persian Gulf. It has 56 cruise missiles capable of hitting any point in Syria from its current deployment. A US Air Force strategic bomber with 24 cruise missiles has also been urgently sent to the Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar.
The Russian Foreign Ministry also commented on the information about the provocation being prepared. Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergey Ryabkov called it "cynical measures to disrupt the signs of stabilization in Syria".
Sergey Ryabkov: "The US is using armed terrorist groups and quasi-governmental organizations to organize provocations in the country. These organizations act ruthlessly, brutally, using poisonous substances. The Americans blame the provocations on the government in Damascus. We may be on the verge of repeating that outrageous scenario, and now a rough provocation followed by air strikes is highly likely".
The pattern is typical for American actions around the world: Provocation, an act of retaliation, destabilization of the situation, and the subsequent regime change. But the Russian Foreign Ministry says Moscow is ready for such a scenario. Whatever the developments, Russia will not abandon the fight against international terrorism and the plans to return Syria to normal life.
