French & Belgian Intelligence Officers Are Planning Chemical Provocation in Syria’s Idlib: Russian MoD

French an Belgian intelligence officers have arrived in Syria’s Idlib in order to help militants there stage a chemical weapons provocation, head of the Russian Centre for the Reconciliation of Opposing Sides in Syria, Maj. Gen. Viktor Kupchishin, revealed during a press briefing on March 30.

“To organize provocations, representatives of the French and Belgian secret services arrived in Idlib. Under their supervision, a meeting was held with the field commanders of the terrorist groups of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and Horas Al-Din, as well as with the representatives of the pseudo-humanitarian organization ‘White helmets’” Maj. Gen. Kupchishin as saying.

According to Maj. Gen. Kupchishin, the officers paid $100 everyone who agreed to participate in the filming of the provocation. The Russian commander also warned that the perpetrators may use real toxic materials in order to achieve authenticity of photo and video materials.

The Belgian intelligence officers also filmed several Russian airstrikes on militants’ positions in Idlib in order to use this footage later in a misleading way.

“From 14 March to 27 March 2019, the representatives of the Belgian secret services recorded strikes on video, which the Russian Aerospace Forces targeted at terror groups’ arms depots and footholds of drones on the territory of the Idlib de-escalation zone, in order to subsequently present them as an ‘evidence’ of the use of chemical weapons,” Kupchishin said.

As for the toxic material that will be used in the provocation, Kupchishin said that the French intelligence had delivered loads of chlorine gas to radical militants in Idlib on March 23. According to him, the gas containers were transferred from Saraqib to the towns of Khan Shaykhun, Maarrat Horma and Kafr Zita.

Russia and its allies believe that radical militants and their backers are planning to use these chemical weapons provocation to justify new attacks by the U.S. and its allies on Damascus government forces. Such attacks could hinder any future anti-terror operation in Idlib.

Very helpful than you. So how in the last 3 times, did they get into Idlib.

Jim Prendergast

Homs, Daraa, Idlib. They got into Idlib through Turkey.

Oh, thanks.


1. There are local networks, as well as bribable soldiers everywhere, as all they need to do is look the other way. Nevertheless there are only a limited number of routes into Idlib that are actually feasible. It’s possible Syrian Intelligence allows certain routes to remain open just for the purpose. The infiltrators were spotted, photographed (secretly I assume) and Russian intel analysts were able to identify and put names on them within 24 hrs. Syrian intel operates agents inside Idlib, and they have been able to locate the meetings of these foreign agents, and WH. Their every move has been followed, so the Russians can confidently announce that they know what’s coming.
2. Benefit is allowing US and others to start missile strikes again. It is a desperate plan, and I don’t expect they will succeed, but one prepares for the worst…

Thank you. Excellent reply.


pffffft, nailed again? This is saying they know the identity of these guys.

I have found Russian announcements, generally tend to turn out to be true. Further, they don’t even announce this stuff unless they have been totally wired into the situation. That means while the French and Belgians were filming them, they were being filmed by those in the service of Syria and it’s allies. It wouldn’t surprise me to learn that they knew they were coming in the first place. No learning curve there amongst the occidentals.

They know the dates and time of day of the chem component movements, the rental fees paid for ‘actors’? How much is France and Belgium spending on their intelligence services? Whatever it is, better spent someplace else because this is amateur hour.

To the Occidentals… Syria has been locked down by the government and it’s allies. They seem to know what brand of toilet paper you guys are using. There is no way out of this type of mess. You have been completely infiltrated and sold out at this point because, …………. you have lost and nobody wants to be next to you when it all ends. Please wise up and save some lives.

My take, I wish well to all.


Looks like Hercule Poirot has been working for Russia! :)


Evidence please? I don’t accept unsubstantiated rumors and hearsay from the Americans and Friends, neither do I accept it from the Russians.


post your phone number and
Maj. Gen. Viktor Kupchishinwill call you personally.


Tempting. Does he have a hot female aide?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
