Russian General Staff: Militants Plotting Chemical Attacks Across Syria

Donate

The Russian state-run news agency TASS reports (source):

Jabhat al-Nusra (a group outlawed in Russia) and the Free Syrian Army are planning chemical attacks with the use of chlorine in areas under their control, including Daraa’s district of Al-Balad, the chief of Russia’s center for the reconciliation of conflicting parties in Syria, Major-General Yuri Yevtushenko, said on Friday.

“The ringleaders of Jabhat al-Nusra and the Free Syrian Army, which are acting together, are plotting explosions of makeshift chemical charges containing chlorine in a number of areas under their control, including Al Balad in Daraa,” he said.

Tipoffs about preparations being made for provocations in the south of Syria, including the use of chemical warfare agents, Yevtushenko said, had been received from the group Jaish Ahrar Al-Ashair, which has taken the government’s side.

Yevtushenko said “the militants plan to photograph and video the alleged effects of chemical weapons and show the clips to the public at large to blame government troops for civilians casualties, as well as to provide excuses for their own actions to disrupt ceasefire in Daraa.”

The equipment for catching phony chemical attacks on camera is already in place and other preparations are on, he said.

    Russia already promised to protect and support Syria-Hezbolah-Iran ground troops against ANY air attack, and even more, Russia promised to attack to those places (ships) where the air attack would come. So, we expect that Russia do what they already promised.

      No, the Russians said they would attack if a US led air strike would kill any of its personnel. Who so happen to be embedded with a lot of Syrian units. But I reckon not every Syrian/Hezbollah/Iranian unit has a Russian attached to it.

        No, lavrov and shoygu told, IF USA WILL ATTACK SYRIAN GOVERNMENT FORCES with missiles, russia will not sit on ass like last time, but fire back.

    U.S. Cope with the FSA for that the rule of truce is being no plotting. If there is a problem delay the decision overtake.

    Americans, they always resort to chemicals and germs when the going gets tough.

      The world is already tired of the same tired excuses

    Lmao. These Syrian gov’t guys are completely idiots. Don’t you really think that people already know that you use chemical weapons daily and being all obsessed about it on the media hence you are the only talking about it every other day.

    They are getting amature

    • AM Hants

      Really? You mean these military chemists, that have been captured,by the Syrians? Now who were they working for?

        Lol your situation is equal to a man claiming you can breathe up in the space without oxygen masj for air supply.

        They got desparate against the rebels and used Sarin Gas. They have been using cholerin gas non-stop but Sarin they used it couple of times and again now they used SARIN gas due to desparation.

        The world is not born yesterday so safe all the nonsense for yourself

          Desperate? They are winning easily. You are the village idiot around here apparently.

          • Mountains

            I know but not willing to take huge losses apparently. They want to finish of Douma desparately to save money and manpower..

            I have said this before man. I won’t be surprised if Russia actully uses nuclear on Syria. They have used everything short of nuke. I definitely won’t be surprised if the Russians actully land an atomic bomb

          • Jason Tribolini

            They aren’t going to take huge losses in Douma. They have the man-power and force multipliers to take Douma, methodically and with minimal casualties over the next 72 hours. The only way they possibly lose (this battle, anyway) is if USA gets drawn in.

            You know this, your Mossad handlers know this, the terrorists attacking Syria know this, everyone knows this, I suppose except for the ignorant American Public and their groveling lackeys over in the European Vassal States. It is they whom you are trying to influence or confuse, right?

            With that, I don’t blame you for your position. It comes with its perks, I am sure, and historically speaking is the safer one, although, maybe not this time around.

    White Helmets are already reporting it with the US State Department chipping in. Did Syria capture UK, US and French military chemists together with so many CW factories, that they left behind? Do believe Russia has already been very vocal in we know your names, dates of meetings, places where it will happen, all the details and they have a good audit trail, should the illegal invaders, try to run with it. Seen it on Sputnik and also the Independent, but, very few are reporting it. No doubt, got their fingers burnt with the Skripals.

    Russian General Staff yesterday: Militants are Plotting Chemical Attacks Across Syria. It has begun. If America strikes Syria with Missiles remember the bright sunlight today; we may never see it again
