Militant groups are constantly violating the ceasefire regime in the Idlib de-escalation zone, the Russian Centre for Reconciliation said in a statement on August 21. According to the statement, the ceasefire were violated in at least 17 villages and settlements in western Aleppo, northern Latakia and northern Hama.

The Center also said that Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) is sabotaging any peaceful dialogue between the opposition and the government as well as has started preparation for own offensive on government positions in southern Idlib.

Abu Mohammad al-Jolani, a leader of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, visited a contact line between militants and the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in northern Latakia. The appearance of al-Jolani in the area once again shows that the terrorist group remains the most powerful force in the militant-held part of Idlib, Aleppo and Latakia provinces. Earlier some powers involved in the conflict argued that there is no Hayat Tahrir al-Sham presence in these areas.

While the SAA is deploying additional reinforcements in northern Hama and Latakia preparing for expected battle against Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and other terrorist groups in northwestern Syria, the US, the UK and France have once again resumed their propaganda campaign to accuse the Syrian government of carrying out chemical attacks against civilians.

On August 21, three countries released a joint statement condemning the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Damascus government. “As Permanent Members of the Security Council, we reaffirm our shared resolve to preventing the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime, and for holding them accountable for any such use,” the statement said adding that the US, the UK and France “will respond appropriately to any further use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime” in fact threatening Syria with new attacks.

Experts expect that if the Idlib operation of the SAA is started, the chemical weapons issue may be once again used by militants and their supporters to justify military actions against government forces by foreign powers.

    Ohhh come on man we are getting tired of the same thing… Do they think the world is stupid??? Everytime Assad is on the upperhand they come with the same excuse. It seems to be that Idlib will be a hard nut to crack

    • Joe

      The nut Bolton has just started to voice along those lines.

      Really stupid beyond stupidity and coming to moron levels leaders.

      • FlorianGeyer

        It is stupid in our eyes BUT it gives FUKUS and the Arse End of Israel a rationale in those Zionist states to attack Syria directly.
        All of the chemical weapons charade is for the consumption of the dullard populations of FUKUS only .

    • Rob

      Fuck US, UK and France let’s move forward.

      • Jack Young

        Cleverson Santos: Yes. The Zionist controlled media brainwashing machine, in addition to all of the other institutions they control – from education to religion, have indeed made the world stupid.

        • KennyB

          It is a reality that the vast majority of people in the Western world have abdicated from all critical thought and logic and simply believe what they read and hear in the mainstream media. The deliberate dumbing down of the population in the Western world has been the one thing that has been truly successful. It never occurs to most of the sheep that the news has little to nothing in common with the truth.

    • Tommy Jensen

      The zio cabal wants Trump, May and Macron to do it. If they refuse or are too slow, they will be kicked out as Obama was.

    • Hisham Saber

      I don’t think so. Once the Syrian Arab Army break through the line of defenses, the Idlib militants will disintegrate.

      The forward forces that will break the militants will be the Tiger Forces , Hezbollah Ridwan brigades , and the Syrian Arab Armies 4th Armored Division.

      The Idlib militants don’t have many medium or large caliber weapons at their disposal. Once a breakthrough is accomplished, it will be a mop and sweep operation. Most will conglomerate on the Turkish border, others will lay down their arms and simply give up.

      Al-Nusra/HTS and the White Helmets will be assisted by Turkish intelligence, where most will be returned to their original country of origin.

      Embedded with the Tigers and the 4th are Chinese Special Forces, Russian Specail Forces and IRGC. Artillery will break them and any resistance. Air strikes will too. It will be an easy nut to crack.

  • eako.baran

    . “As Permanent Members of the Security Council, we reaffirm our shared resolve to preventing the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime,…..” meaning; others can? ..
    …and; ”even if others use chemical weapons, we will still blame Syrian regime (thanks to white helmets)”

    • leon mc pilibin

      Meanwhile their good friend Saudi Arabia is slaughtering women and children,and not a word of condemnation.Zionist Scumbags.

      • eako.baran

        exactly… The conflict in Yemen has resulted in the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, with more than 22 million people — three-quarters of the population — in desperate need of aid and protection, according to the UN.

        even CNN makes news about it, they are not afraid of any demonstrations against the US / UK / FR governments… public has been made mute to -even their own- humanity by means of social media and stuff.

  • Gregory Casey

    What in hell are US / UK / France on about? Keep in mind the following when considering any statements made or about to be made by this criminal triad: Trump is roasting on a spit and facing either/and Impeachment, Criminal Charges on both the Federal and State levels; The PM of Little Britain is roasting on the spit of Brexit in circumstances where the cost to the British Economy to date has been quantified by the Governor of the Bank of England at £40 Billion with far, far worse to come; Meanwhile, the (very) Little Emperor, latter-day Napoleon’s Government popularity is plumbing new lows with no prospects of their regaining popularity and so …….. all three, together have decided that War War is always better than simply behaving responsibly and withdrawing their Forces from Syria. The Italians? We all thought the new Italian Government was supposed to withdraw Italian Armed Forces from Syria but? Nothing! Worse …. Italy has dispatched more Troops to Syria to partake in the wholly illegal occupation of Syrian Sovereign Territory thereby betraying their voters back at home in Italy.

    • Ivan Freely

      Death throes of an Zionist Empire.

    • Italy has to fight a large all out political war in Europe – better avoid opening too many fronts – I do think that most of voters are against any intervention ( i would be actually curious to see a referendum on NATO alliance, unfortunately it would be illegal ) but first Italy needs to set the record straight with immigration, then with 3% limit .. Syria is a marginal area – Libya on the contrary strategic for Italy.

  • gustavo

    Obviously, USA-NATO will want to protect their terrorists and Turkish allied there. So, I consider USA-NATO attack to Syria a fact. Te question is ….what is Russia going to do about it (besides of using electronic war fare) ? Is Russia willing to shot down USA-NATO planes ?…of course not. Is Russia going to help Syria to recover Syria land taken by Turkey ?… of course not (militarily). War is becoming more complicated almost at the end (?) of it.

    • seawolf

      What about Russia declaring the whole of Syria a non fly zone. OK it can be verbally expressed by Assad and Gerasimov say simply yes to the American General when he calls for verification.
      I love this scenario.

      • Feudalism Victory

        What about syria declaring syria is a no fly zone?

        • seawolf

          If Syria was in a position to declare Syria a no fly zone, this war would never happened. Unfortunately they need the help of Russians , Iran , Hesbolah

          • Feudalism Victory

            Yea I get they lack the capability but they could at least make a statement for the record so if anything was shot down thered be no excuse for being there.

    • Is it Turkey still a US ally?

    • Concrete Mike

      Nato wont use planes, they will shoot cruise missiles from far away again. Syria has got this no worries

  • Paul Barbara

    The world needs to wake up pronto to the West’s use of ‘False Flag’ CW attacks and hoaxes in Syria (and Salisbury/Amesbury).

  • leon mc pilibin

    These Zionist scumbags are clearly giving the green light to the terrorists to carry out a False Flag Chemical attack,knowing that their bosses will come to their rescue.How stupid do they think people really are?Syria and its allies had better get their air defences on maximum alert because the real war is only starting.

  • John

    I don’t even think they would try something again, especially after the last fiasco. Since the last strike, the US has gone bonkers with sanctions. So I wonder how much backing for nonexistent chemical strikes they will receive. But, with the truly dedicated, one can never tell.

    • William Warren Conkright

      Sadly the US has chosen defeat, because that is what will happen to Terrorists and their supportes in Idlib. The SAA will be victorious and many black plastic bags filled with remains will be coming back home, for what ? Like Milosevic said in 1999 “stop the lies, stop the bombing” Stop telling lies . People can see through it but CNN , others cannot, that is why they started censorship in the USA now.. Land of the free ?

      • John

        Hello William. Definitely. It ‘s too late for CNN et al. People over there know what’s up. The kids even started something on their own, which will be devastating to the ideology that all the garbage springs from. the kids are now saying, ‘I am not bianary’. The game is over.

        • Ivan Freely

          bianary?

          • John

            Hi Ivan. The kids, teens to early and may mid 20’s, are saying that I am neither positive nor negative, 1 or 0. They are telling the elites that they do not fit into their mold. It is an actual grass roots rebellion against what is politically in vogue. There is no organization to this so, there is no way to fight it.

            And they are not talking about just Trump. They are directing this at the liberal media and their favorite liberal pets, LGBT for example. The lack of tolerance for independent thinking has reached ridiculous levels in the US. The LGBT crowd of activists for example, have gone completely nuts and nobody has time for them anymore; only the politicians and the msm. Hence, this is why Hillary spoke of ‘undesirables’. The kids have had enough and this will translate into major changes 20 and 30 years down the road. My take on that. I wish you well.

  • Joe

    Just why are western countries with US as leaders so terrible and deceitful and evil?

    So childish . Have lost the war against Assad and want to stop Assad from destroying terrorists.

  • R PLobo

    The zionist mercs will be crushed and there is nothing the nato masters can do. The Russians will be directly involved in the final liberation of Syria. Any attack on the SAA by nato will lead to direct confrontation with Russian forces who have already stated that they will counter strike nato ships and bases.
    As for a ground attack that is completely absurd – even the US cannot assemble a viable invasion force. Clearly from the use of drugged up mercs the US is no longer capable of fielding any kind of infantry.

    • Feudalism Victory

      Too much soy fluoride and feminization.

    • charlesjannuzi

      Even the US? What have past invasions by the US taught you? US doctrine: never attack a country that can defend itself, never go to the aid of an ally who can’t. What is the US going to invade Syria with other than its few thousand ‘elite’ artillery spotters?

  • Ma_Laoshi

    Whether anyone believes these fairy tales is neither here nor there. What matters is these countries show that they can bomb Russian allies and get away with it. Since this aggression was appeased last time round, and since Russia is once again signaling premature withdrawal, all the signs point to a replay. It’s not like all those wonder weapons which Russia loves to show off have been made available to the allies who actually need them.

  • Boris Kazlov

    My question is: what will Russia do if SAA is attacked by foreign actors? Words as usual?

    • Tommy Jensen

      They have done pretty well up to date.

    • Ivan Freely

      Depends on who the foreign actors are, and more importantly, what is used. If cruise missile strikes again, then Russian forces will likely interfere with it. If direct intervention, then nothing but words. However, direct intervention will have negative consequences on their respective homefront (i.e. US Republican Party losing the coming midterms).

  • Manuel Flores Escobar

    They threatened with the same scenario in Dara…and nothing happened!…almost all cruise missile were intercepted and destroyed in the last attack!…nobody believe that 76 cruise missile hit 3 small buildings with one floor..it means 2 tomahawk per room ( bathroom included)….I would say that no more than 6 missile hit that complex…I watched in you tube a video of Ivan Sidorenko of more than one hour of the US&Allies attack in Damascus…

  • northerntruthseeker .

    Here we go again…. The US/Israel/NATO criminal scourge will once again have their fraud “white helmets” or other operatives in the Idlib pocket carry out a “chemical weapons” attack on civilians there and conveniently the US will use the Jew spew media to push the propaganda that it was Assad once again ‘gassing his own people’…

    Honestly ,how stupid do people have to be to not see this is another in the long line of “chemical weapons” shams…. But again, considering the average American sheep has the brain power of mosquito pee, I can guarantee most will fall for this bullshit once again..

  • Thunder

    it means only one thing they have assets in idlib and they don’t want to lose em so then why don’t u do what u always do and put hijabs on ur fake jew generals and watch em run out of there

  • Icarus Tanović

    This thing is already becoming moronic, come up with something new, aight?

  • frankly

    Ah time for an encore performance of the White Helmets! Can’t actually organize and finance a successful military operation, but distribute fake propaganda video to a worldwide audience, piece of cake!

    Not a single interview of one of the 589,500 people who safely returned to Deir Ezzor, protected by the SAA and animal Assad, but footage of a neighborhood where any non-Wahhabi would immediately loose his head, oh we got hours of that!

    Of course killing women and children and getting it all on film is an expensive operation that F.uk.us have been funding for years. So stay tuned Western exceptionalists, our camera’s have captured the story and it should bring you to tears. That we issued this warning just before another incident means we are almost done editing the footage and getting plausible deniability lawyered into place.

    Oh and just ignore the fact that tens of thousands of terrorists and their families have been granted amnesty and bussed to safety, we still have the need to kill our own citizens. I know you get a headache trying to understand this narrative and all our endless name changes. But we gave you the straight poop on 9/11, why would we need to lie about this?

  • I think that the deep state does not consider that to fight wars you need good soldiers, and good soldiers have a tendency to think.

    I do think that a British, American or French patriot, rational and motivated to fight for own country can not believe a narrative of
    Assad, who has won the war and he is making last clean up operation, setting up a chemical attack.

    MSM can maybe dupe the transgender Antifa supporter and the like… but on real people able to fight in a war? I doubt.

    • RichardD

      That’s why there’s not alot of support for the Jew world order criminals in the US military after they attacked us on 911 and have gotten us involved in so many expensive dead end military adventures.

      • John Brown

        The USSA military gives massive support for the racist supremacist global Jewish confederate slave empire dictatorship. Not the rank and file members, the criminal leadership worshiping Satan at Bohemian grove etc. I have no doubt the USSA military would and will assist the racist supremacist global Jewish confederate slave empire dictatorship to exterminate the entire Goyim population of the USSA.
        In any normal country the USSA military would have revolted a long time ago against its Zio slave masters. In the UK the ZIO Nazi government has barely averted 2 anti ZIO military coups in the past 20 years with the massive help and assistance of the USSA military. Most in the leadership of the USA military are John McCain types, like the Samuel L Jackson uncle Tom Shabbas Goy character in Jango.

        • RichardD

          That’s why the US has gun rights. “Assault” weapons were outlawed in NYS with a low single digit registration compliance rate. Most police officers didn’t comply, let alone the rest of the civilian population.

          It’s also why the US needs to be dejudified, to get rid of these evil cultists.

          • John Brown

            Yes they don’t obey this order, but they do obey pretty much every other of their ZIO satanic Nazi slave masters.

            Now This is Racism
            August 22, 2018 / Gilad Atzmon
            http://www.gilad.co.uk/writings/2018/8/22/now-this-is-racism
            This is what happens to JVL’s ‘principle statement’ once you replace the word ‘Jewish’ with ‘Aryan.’
            By Gilad Atzmon
            What do you call an exclusively Aryan club that welcomes support from ALL members of society but only allows Aryans in as members?
            Nazis I guess.
            What would you call a white nationalist campaign organisation that welcomes support from people of ALL colours who agree with their ‘statement of principles’ but only allows nonwhites in as ‘solidarity members’? I think that ‘white supremacist’ is the term the Left uses to refer to such groups.
            Would Jeremy Corbyn accept support from groups that name themselves ‘Aryan Voice for Labour’ or ‘Whites for Corbyn’? Would the Labour party allow any such groups in its proximity? I don’t think so, they would be booted out in seconds. The Labour leader would be very quick to disassociate himself from such racially exclusive bodies. But neither Labour nor Corbyn have ever contemplated denouncing the Jews only, racially exclusive enthusiasts at Jewish Voice for Labour (JVL).
            One finds the following statement on their front page.
            “We welcome support from ALL members of the Labour Party who agree with our statement of principles. If you are not Jewish you can join us as a solidarity member.” (jewishvoiceforlabour.org.uk)
            This means that even if you are not racially qualified as a Jew, you can still ‘support’ the Jews only group. You can make a donation, you may even be able to join their miniature protests but you will never be a proper member of the clan, you can only be a class B ‘solidarity member,’ like the Druze in Israel.
            This is very revealing: first, it positively confirms that Corbyn isn’t an anti-Semite. He may even embrace Jewish racism when it is executed to support him. A less positive observation is that Jewish racism may be attached to most if not all forms of Jewish politics. Without Jews being a race or forming a racial continuum, Jewish politics is, unfortunately, racially oriented. Every political Jewish activity seems to adhere to a certain type of Jewish tribal biologism. Shockingly, it seems that Israel is slightly less racist (for the time being) than the JVL. While in Israel the 3rd biggest party in the Knesset is an Arab Party, in Jewish Voice for Labour, Arabs and Goyim can only participate as ‘solidarity members.’
            Since JVL accepts support from Goyim who agree with their Statement of Principles I decided to examine how unprincipled their statement is.
            “Jewish Voice for Labour is a network for Jewish members of the Labour Party.” What qualifies one as a Jew, is it the mother’s blood or is it merely the sustained consumption of chicken soup? The JVL doesn’t provide an answer. We can assume that for JVL, Jews are those who fit biological criteria, otherwise they would provide a chicken soup recipe for those who insist upon joining their ranks as equal members.
            part 2 “Our political priorities are universal human rights and dignity; justice for all; freedom of expression; and democracy in the Labour Party.”This sounds spectacularly good, but begs the question of how they claim to adhere to universality when they don’t even accept Goyim as equal participants in their club. Apparently the ‘solidarity members’ do not enjoy voting rights as the JVL’s constitution specifies that the organisation is led by Jewish people. The inevitable answer is that the JVL’s statement is duplicitous at its core.
            And the lies continues: “Our mission is to contribute to making the Labour Party an open, democratic and inclusive party, encouraging all ethnic groups and cultures to join and participate freely.” The Labour Party should be an ‘open space,’ but the JVL is clearly not. It is a tribal, racially exclusive setting that operates in total contradiction of every Labour Party value.
            And again, “we (JVL) aim to strengthen the party in its opposition to all forms of racism including anti-Semitism.” The JVL is against all forms of racism except their own. I am pretty sure that the JVL would oppose groups called ‘Aryans for Jeremy’ or ‘White Voices for Labour’ but for some reason they fail to see that they themselves engage in identical racist activities.
            The JVL opposes Israeli criminality and this is a good thing. “We stand for rights and justice for Jewish people everywhere, and against wrongs and injustice to Palestinians and other oppressed people anywhere.” A welcome statement, but if you are against Zionist injustice, why do you repeat the Zionist procedure by making non-Jewish Labour members into class B members of your ranks?
            I agree with many of JVL’s ideas. The Jewish group opposes “attempts to widen the definition of antisemitism beyond its meaning of hostility towards or discrimination against Jews as Jews.” Yet, I wonder why these Jews feel the need to do it while celebrating their Jewish privilege in Jews only political cells? If, as they claim, they uphold a universal ethical stand, then surely they should operate as ordinary humans as the universalist Labour standard would dictate.
            My answer is this: they do it because: 1. they are not the most sophisticated amongst people, 2. in total contradiction to their statement, they actually enjoy celebrating their Jewish privilege and operating in racially exclusive political cells, and 3. the Jewish activism in support of Jeremy Corbyn reduces any questions regarding Corbyn’s electability into an internal Jewish affair. Once again, the Goyim are excluded from the debate over the prospects of their own futures.
            The only question left open for the time being is why Jeremy Corbyn allows all of this to happen within the Labour Party.

          • RichardD

            Jews are well aware that their crimes are morally indefensible. Which is why they’re constantly on the offense falsely accusing others of what they themselves are guilty of to divert attention from it. Starting with antisemitism and going from there.

            The US is one more Jew parasitical host pump and dump of the type that they’ve been involved with many times. Even in the US, which is the most Jew infested nation on the planet outside of Palestine, and with their control of the msm and government, they can’t cover up their crimes, especially with the advent of the internet. Which they’re trying to take over with limited success because it’s being used against them effectively.

            No one is more aware of the Jew problem than the US military. And yes parts of it are corrupt. But parts of it aren’t. And the Jews and their collaborators don’t have free reign over it. The solution that needs to be implemented is outlawing Judaism worldwide, closing the synagogues and yeshivas, and dejudifying the planet without genocide so that there are no more Jews.

          “The Temple was established in the United States in 1975 by Michael Aquino, an American political scientist, military officer, and a high-ranking member of Anton LaVey’s Church of Satan. Dissatisfied with the direction in which LaVey was taking the Church, Aquino resigned and – according to his own claim – embarked on a ritual to invoke Satan, who revealed to him a sacred text called The Book of Coming Forth by Night.”

          – Temple of Set –

          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Temple_of_Set

          “As part of the Presidio investigation, a search warrant was served on the residence of Lt. Col. Michael Aquino and his wife Lilith, and numerous videotapes, photographs, photo albums, photographic negatives, cassette tapes, and address books were confiscated. Also observed during the search was what appeared to be a soundproof room that may have been used as a torture chamber.

          1987 (November) – The US Army received allegations of child abuse at fifteen of its day care centers and several elementary schools. There were also at least two other cases at Air Force day care centers, and another one at a center run by the US Navy. …

          An investigation led by former US Attorney Rudolph Giuliani produced no federal grand jury indictments. His investigation concluded that only one or two children were abused, in spite of all the evidence to the contrary. …

          The key investigator in the case, Gary Caradori, was killed when his private plane mysteriously exploded in mid-air while en route to delivering evidence to Senator Loran Schmit. His briefcase went missing from the wreckage. This was the first of many deaths of people attempting to uncover this politically connected satanic cult/sex slave/drug trafficking ring.”

    1. Russia should assist Syria to stand up against any attack by US/UK/France attack against any Syirian target. Russia should retaliate against the jets, ships and submarine that launch any missiles against Syirian without any more warning and tough talk.
    2. Turkish should change side now and assist Russian and Syrian to fight against all terrorist in Syria and Iraq.
    3. Turkish should close down Insyrlik airbase for US and UK plane and kick US out from TUirkish soil and airspace.

    • William Warren Conkright

      Dont be counting too much on Turkey, they have theie own shades of revived ottoman empire dreams and will eventually have to be invaded and conquered by Russia. Why are they selling terrorist supporting Turkey S400’s maybe they have a back door into them to disable them if need be, meanwhile take the money home. Make it Constantinople again.

  • Cedric Hunter

    The chemical weapons charge will become the boy who cried wolf, over and over again. i see this as a desperation ploy. The West knows they have lost

  • Srini Rao

    Why are they ( US, UK, France) worried about Syrian govt. using chemical weapons, not the militants using chemical weapons?. Silly and stupid argument

  • RichardD

    These types of foolish statements by the UNSC Jew 3 scammers just reinforce the view of many on this planet that these Jew infested governments are part of the problem and not part of the solution. Especially after they thoroughly disgraced themselves with their last chemical weapons false flag attack that was shown to be a fraud by the subsequent OPCW investigation.
