The Western-backed White Helmets organization is plotting yet another provocation in the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib, Vadim Kulit, deputy chief of the Russian Reconciliation Center in Syria, revealed on November 3, according to the TASS news agency.
Greater Idlib is the home to many terrorist groups, including al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham. The White Helmets have been working closely with these groups.
“The Russian Center for Reconciliation of the Opposing Parties has received data that members of the pseudo-humanitarian organization White Helmets are plotting a provocation with an aim of accusing government forces of delivering indiscriminate strikes at civilian facilities and civilians,” the Russian officer said.
According to kulit, the White Helmets are recruiting people from the towns of Kafr Kermin and Sarmada in the Idlib to take part in fake a fake video report.
“It is planned to engage English-language reporters, who have arrived in the Idlib de-escalation zone to highlight the provocation,” Kulit added.
Terrorist groups and the White Helmets stage provocations in Greater Idlib on a regular basis in order to accuse Syrian government forces of committing war crimes such as intentionally shelling civilians.
According to reports by Syrian, Russian and Lebanese sources, the terrorists even attempted to stage attacks with chemical weapons on several occasions.
The terrorist groups and the White Helmets hope that their propaganda stunts could provoke a military strikes by the US and its Western allies against Syrian government forces.
Currently, terrorists in Greater Idlib, who continue to violate a ceasefire brokered by Russia and Turkey last year, are preparing for a possible attack by the Syrian Arab Army and its allies.
