Russian Defense Minister: 3 Attempts to Use Chemical Weapons in Syria Prevented Last Week

Sergey Shoigu

Three attempts of usage of chemical weapons were prevented in Syria last week, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said during a video conference on March 20.

There is a possibility that terrorists will use poisonous substances in order to accuse the Syrian troops of using chemical weapons in the future,” the minister added.

He also drew attention to an increased activity of the US-led coalition and attempts by militants to stage provocations.

HINT: An obvious place for possible militant provocations in the Damascus subrub of Eastern Ghouta where the Syrian Army’s military operation against militant groups is now ongoing.

Shoigu said that over 65% of Eastern Ghouta has been liberated by government forces and 79,655 people have been evacuated from the combat area so far.

“Currently, under the leadership of the Russian Reconciliation Center, an unprecedented humanitarian operation is being conducted in Eastern Ghouta. Over the last 5 days, 79,655 people have been evacuated via the humanitarian corridors,” the minister said. “Despite attempts by militants to disrupt peace initiatives in East Ghouta, we are negotiating with the leaders of the armed groups in order to stop fighting and prevent a humanitarian disaster.

According to ome pro-government sources, the Syrian Army has limited its offensive operations in some areas of Eastern Ghouta amid the ongoing negotiations between the Syrian-Russian-Iranian alliance and local militants. However, if negotiations result in no success, an active phase of the military operion will be resumed.

      With such perception of reality I would strongly recommend you visit a psychiatrist. I stopped reading your nonsense more than a year ago and by chance I read it. Man, take care, you are in need of urgent medical assistance. If you can not distinguish between reality and hallucinations…. it is serious.

  • Do not forget the attempt to use chemical weapons that failed when British spies gassed themselves in Salisbury, and the UK rushed to blame Russia to hide its incompetence and avoid mockery from Russia http://www.clubof.info/2018/03/uk-assassins-gassed-themselves.html

        “The bizarre “chemical attack” in Salisbury, England, blamed on Russia by the UK, seems like a chapter intended for Syria rather than Britain. Because it is. …

        The Russian former double agent’s daughter Yulia, likely as involved with UK intelligence agencies as her father, seems to have been carrying the nerve agent in her suitcase at the time of the apparent “attack”. That much is already confirmed by, basically, all the media.”

            Yes, what do you call this:

            You saw the cannister labeled “Salisbury England” in the video at 0:41 I hope?

            It is a smoke grenade made by Pains Wessex……

          • RichardD

            Can you disprove this shipment to terrorists?

          • Graeme Rymill

            I can say with 100% certainty that the “recent video footage of captured munitions in Eastern Ghouta shows that some of the munitions’ origin was Salisbury, England” is evidence of exactly nothing except they found a smoke grenade.

            The onus is on the people who publish this fake news (e.g. clubof.info) and the the people who maintain that it is true (such as yourself Richard) to provide evidence. “Such a finding [i.e. a harmless gas grenade] offers strong grounds to suspect at least some link between the events in Salisbury and the events in Eastern Ghouta”. Has you bullshit detector ceased to operate Richard? Because this “link” is clearly bullshit.

          • RichardD

            What do you is the possibility that these people were involved in the shipment of military munitions from England:

            Thank you, from the link that you provided:

            “All of these groups and countless others have well-designed flags and logos as well as quality videos. All of this communication material is manufactured by the United Kingdom. In 2007, it had a war propaganda unit, the Research Information and Communications Unit (RICU) headed by MI6 (Secret Service) officer Jonathan Allen. Starting from the chemical weapons case in the summer of 2013, the RICU financed an external company to assist the communication of combatants in Syria (and subsequently those of Yemen). It was initially Regester Larkin, then Innovative Communications & Strategies (InCoStrat). Both companies are headed by an MI6 officer, Colonel Paul Tilley.

            Jonathan Allen, whose rank we do not know, has become number two in the UK permanent representation at the United Nations. He is currently leading the Security Council against Russia and Syria.”

            also from the article –

            Harakat Ahrar al-Sham al-Islamiyya, abbreviated as Ahrar al-Sham,
            translates as the Islamic Movement of the Free Men of the Levant. “Free
            men” do not refer here to “freedom” in the Western sense. They did not
            liberate themselves from a dictatorship, but were released from their
            human condition by practicing Salafist Islam. So that there is no doubt
            about the interpretation of the word, a minaret appears on the group
            logo.

            This group, very internationalized, was created by Egyptians during the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak by the United States [3].

            Syrian Muslim Brothers, who were imprisoned for belonging to a
            terrorist organization, joined him after being pardoned in 2011 at the
            request of third countries. Among them, several former collaborators of
            Osama Bin Laden in Afghanistan then in Yugoslavia. This explains their
            proximity to the Taliban, whom they often cite as an example of faith.

            In all its publications, it defines itself as a “complete Islamic movement, fighting for Allah and defending religion”.

            The group is commanded by Hassan Soufan, known as “Abu al-Bara”, who
            was imprisoned for a decade for his membership in the Muslim
            Brotherhood.

            The Foreign Minister of this group, Labib al-Nahhas, travels to the
            West.

            He is a British, MI6 officer. In July 2015, he published free
            forums in the Washington Post and the Daily Telegraph.

          • There is actually good evidence for this version of events whereas the British regime is struggling to come up with anything to support its lies, except maybe you.

            (1) The Skripals were carrying the nerve agent
            (2) Munitions were passing from Salisbury to Eastern Ghouta, a smoke grenade is sufficient evidence to prove that
            (3) The UK’s chemical weapons labs at Porton Down are only a few miles from Salisbury
            (4) Nikki Haley fumbled papers and talked about Assad and Syria 10 times at the UN when she was asked to talk about Salisbury. Seems the chemical attack happened in the wrong place.

            The effort going in to covering up the lies is so poor that the British regime should admit to gassing its own people.

          • RichardD

            In a court of law the term is nexus, as in MI6 military gas canisters, MI6 operative chemical weapons in briefcase and MI6 false flag in Syria. Do many rational people see a possible nexus there? I think that the answer to that question is yes.

          • Graeme Rymill

            “MI6 military gas canisters'” No it is clearly a Pains Wessex smoke grenade. No evidence of MI6 involvement ; no evidence of chemical warfare – certainly not a harmless gas grenade and therefore no evidence of a MI6 false flag operation.

            That alien beam weapon did more damage to your brain than you are admitting Richard.

          • RichardD

            These are the facts that disprove your no evidence claim:

            I’ve provided judicial quality evidence, you’ve provided evasive arguments that defy common sense.

          • RichardD

            Nerve agent that the MI6 operative got poisoned with is chemical warfare wmd, there is a long trail of MI6 involvement in smuggling weapons into Syria, and chemical weapons false flags have been documented in Syria for years.

          • roger temple

            Not to mention the presence of Britain’s biggest chemical agent agency (you might call it so) at Porton Down a few miles from Salisbury……

          • neil barron

            Are you that stupid? I’ve watched videos of captured munitions for long time when you see stuff from all over the world it’s not hard to put the pieces together.
            So much stuff is from Bulgaria it’s despicable . Not even trying to hiding these things. Yes rocket launchers that they have to find someone to educate and train to use them. US Made. Look and the truth is there. Look at all of the ammo containers so many are rusty think about it?? They are old stock from every where some older than world war 2 sell it to the terrorist they haven’t got any brains. Watch failure videos on equipment and munitions failure so much junk to get rid of including the people using it.

    Guys, lets donate. $1666 or 1666 bullets on the troll bastards are already missing. Lets shoot the troll bastards.

  • Joe

    Why the devil don’t attack the terrorists when they used chemical weapons to blame on Assad?

    This is getting too much

  • Starlight

    If a thousand assassins are sent to kill your man, and 999 are stopped, do you cheer?

    A Great Power doesn’t allow another Great Power to pull such a stunt in the first place.

    How stupid is Putin? Well today Trump called Putin to ‘congratulate’ him on his election win, and arrange a meeting to oversee the ENDING of Russia’s nuclear weapons advantage. Ring a bell?

    Yes, that’s right, Trump is treating Putin in the EXACT same way as he treats the leader of N Korea- conflating the leader of N Korea and Putin in the minds of the public. Very clever trick, which dumbo Putin fell for hook, line and sinker.

    In Syria it is a matter of time before a BRITISH false-flag is good enough to be the excuse Trump is looking for. Meanwhile the clock counts down to the Iran War, when Trump moves the Israeli embassy and withdraws from the treaty with Iran this May.

    • neil barron

      Talk about conflating two things here, you have conflated no less than six different issues here to prove what ? I do realize that you are not in any command position here and one of the premier notions is don’t under estimate your enemy. Putin has waxed his way past Odumbo and is still dealing with the Odumbos military which we here understand that they are using him. US losing Putin winning.

  • frankly

    The minister Shoigu, a Buddhist if memory serves, looks decidedly unhappy. Perhaps it is a file photo but it does not look familiar. I for one would not want to count on him to back down.
    What is it that makes chemical weapons use so heinous? Destroying a waste treatment plant or the electrical grid leads to slow painful deaths from disease. Aren’t those usually the #1 priority for US planners? I for one don’t like the idea of phosphorous, getting burned seems like the worst way to go.
