Hayat Tahrir al-Sham Arrests Hundreds Of Civilians Including Children In Syria’s Idlib

Illustrative image

On August 26, a source familiar with the situation in the northern governorate of Idlib told the al-Mayadeen TV that Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) and its allies have arrested more than 1,000 civilians so far after accusing them of communicating with the Damascus government.

Furthermore, the source revealed that dozens of children were abducted from different areas in Idlib in the last few weeks. In the most recent incident, three young children from the same family where abducted from their home in the town of Turmanin in the northern countryside of the governorate.

The source warned that Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its allies may have been planning to use these detainees to stage a fake chemical attack in northern Syria in order to provoke military intervention of the U.S. and its allies.

Earlier, Russian Defense Ministry’s spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov said that “foreign specialists” arrived in Syria to stage a chemical attack, which will be blamed on the Damascus government. Maj. Gen. Konashenkov added that a group of residents was brought from the northern Idlib countryside to participate in the staged attack.

Such a provocation is highly possible, especially that HTS and its allies are desperate in their attempts to prevent the upcoming attack of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) on their remaining positions in northern Syria.

Funnily enough I thought of the possibility of a mixed age and sex group of civilians would be ‘suitable’ as victims of a False Flag chemical attack.

The same thing happened in Khan Sheikun when abducted Christians from a small town a week earlier than the Faked Chemical attack went missing.


Looks like Bolton and Isis are working in tandem to kill civilians in a so called chemical attack by the SAA


John Bolton is another tumor like John McCain.

They are a cancer. It has already consumed muckain.

Peter Jennings

Will bolt-on allow himself to photographed taking tea with terrorists like muckain? My guess, like the animal he is, he has better sense. He seems to be lacking the arrogance he displayed in the 1980’s too.

Let’s hope the Trumpster puts him on a lead soon.


The world all communities know that US, UK and Israeli elements are child butchers in Syria and in the rest of the world. God protect all humanity from these three tumors.

Bill Wilson

Sounds more like kidnapping for ransoms. They need to find the cash to pay their troops since the extremists don’t get jack shit from Erdogan.

leon mc pilibin

Nutandyahoo, more like it.


The children will be asphyxiated by the WH and used in footage as proof of Assads butchery. We can only hope Russia gets its defense missiles in place to combat the US destroyers floated in with 56 cruise missiles on one ship alone. Going to be tough to keep this from exploding into greater war if they use all the weapons they’ve brought. I’m still astounded they bussed terrorists to idlib in the first place, what were they thinking would happen? Putting terrorists and WH next to and in the illegal AL Tanf base to regroup and rearm is insanity.

Western media cannot say that US attacks have been launched in order to protect Al Qaeda…instead of that..they say that they are “protecting civilians” of Chemical attacks…


Except that US attacks in response to ‘chemical attacks’ have protected no one, nor changed the course of battle. For all the effort that the White Helmets and FUKUS have put into staging fake chemical attacks and ‘responding’ to them it has not changed the course of the war. So it can’t be for that purpose. What other nefarious purpose are they working towards?

Manuel Flores Escobar

To discredit Russian military..because although Syrian air defense shot down 100 tomahawk and 2 of them hit the targets… the US military staff will always say that all Tomahawk hit the target!..as we seen in the last US attack!

al quaida

Do cruise missiles have a shelf-life? Maybe they need to clear out the old stock occasionally? Maybe they want an update on how effective their tomahawks are against an enemy’s air defence systems? Perhaps it also contributes towards setting the norm. Ingraining in people that the US reserves the right to bomb any enemy it deems evil enough.


Are these (my country) beasts going to allow and take part in the execution of kidnapped children to justify a massive attack on Syria critical infrastructure? Sadly I believe they are. Russian MOD has to there credit put forth more than five alerts in the past few days so they appear to be doing everything in there legal power to get the word out ahead of time. Disgustingly the US politic really have no legal worries about going ahead with it anyway. Who’s going to prosecute them and they’re at the ready to ridicule any alternate views as conspiracy theories.

John Mason

What needs to be said is that the US and coalition are held accountable for their proxy terrorists and they will be targeted if chemical weapons are used.


There is a Hawaiian Representative, Tulsi Gabbard who has real Aloha and could be alerted, and has the courage to speak up. No ka oi http://gabbard.house.gov


F.U.K.U.S Bring on your War Bitchesss…Bloody Traitors…One Day you will Hang High for it…..if it’s up to me Next Week… I can’t wait to see your Corpses Dangling in a Tree Bloody COCKROACHESSSSSS…

Matew Ivanson

Gregory Casey

A large dose of narcotics here methinks


Go fuck yourself…You are a Complete Jidiot…You will be Nothing in the Hands of Hezbollah….HasbaraBitch….


Jidiot :) How about also, Jihadidiot?


JIDIOT & JIHADIOT…..?? On the Quest for One World Order…. ???

neil barron

Project much! There are no 100,000 defenders just Satanic acolytes waiting to get their camel dung ride to their 72 camel virgins.




The guy with the gun looks scared. As well he should be.


This little boy represents a serious treat to Israel !!!! How an adult human being can direct his machine wan to a little boy ? These people are still liven in Habraham times, stone age. This is like seen a monkey with a weapon.


Nothing to see here, just people for the British to gas and film whilst they die.

Cheryl Brandon

The Wahabhist criminals are on the warpath ?? Children and all/ blood thirsty headchoppers!

Hassadnah Abraham

Russia and Syrian must bomb the source of any attack against Syrian government facility / army, be it the ship, submarine or plane. No MORE WARNING

AG Korvin

Is there ANY proof of the complicity to stage chem attacks?

Peter Jennings

This shower of shit came about to ‘liberate’ the Syrian people from their gov’t. They began this process with smiles and good gestures, saying that everyone was a brother who follows islam. Now things haven’t quite worked out and the Syrian people recognise the scam of their sham, they feel inclined to start threatening and arresting those who believe in a slightly different islam where one gets to keep their head and their sisters aren’t sold into slavery.

This shower of shit has already been beaten once and shown leniency, yet they continue to harass and bully the Syrian population because of their disbelief in the foreign propaganda. Let’s hope after their next and final defeat, there won’t be many left to carry on the sham for foreign gov’ts.


I notice a commendable change in tone in the Russian communications. They don’t mince words as much as in past. If Assad was guilty of all the nonsense blamed on him why all this back and forth?

F.uk.us and corroborators know the truth and the expense of deploying plausible deniability just grinds salt into their wounds from loss after loss. You use women and children to spread your terror. We will show you the same mercy you showed them.

In the not too far distant future bounty hunters will track down those who commit these atrocities and those who paid to have them done. At some point the hunters will become the hunted and there will be no where to hide.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
