Militants of al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) attempted to use the chemicals to stage a provocation on March 2. However, they ended up poisoning themselves, according to the Ministry of Defense of Russia.

The militants’ provocation was likely meant to justify a intervention by the U.S. and other Western nations against the SAA. Similar plans were uncovered by Russian, Syrian and Lebanese sources over the last year.

    Seems like HTS’ ‘summon the tomahawks’ dance did backfire this time.

    • George King

      Much like the summoned strike delivery of tomahawks backfired previously and (propaganda) revealed as a paper tiger. I’m not sure at this stage after the Iranian strike on the US base that the US is willing to go that false flag route so openly next time around.

      • FlorianGeyer

        The US has made sure that the OPCW bosses themselves will personally investigate the next White Helmet False Flag and come to the ‘right’ conclusion that ‘Assad dun it wiv dr commie Ruskie’s help’, George :)

      It’s not like summon the tomahawk dance did much for them the last time. Unless it was followed by a sustained US air offensive to support Al Qaida a few Tomahawk potshots isn’t going to change the situation on the ground one bit. Having Turkey come ride out to the rescue was a far bigger boon. And it didn’t even require them to stage a fake chemical attack. All they had to do was lose. Easy, anyone can do that, and Al Nusra has become experts at that. Still didn’t do much for them as the Turks had to join them in their ‘victorious retreat’.
