"Idlib miltiants have delivered canisters with chlorine to the village of Bsanqul, where they are preparing to stage a chemical attack, the Russian Defense Ministry says"
The Russians have again warned about plans by Al-Qaeda forces in Syria to stage a false flag chemical attack to justify military action by the US and allied nations.
The latest warning came Saturday from Lt. Gen. Vladimir Savchenko of the Russian Center for Reconciliation. Savchenko said that jihadists from the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) have delivered chlorine canisters to the village of Bsanqul in Idlib Province.
The Russian military warning comes ahead of tomorrow's meeting between Russia's President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Tayyip Recep Erdogan. The Turkish regime has been sending out messages of opposition to a Syrian government offensive in the north citing "humanitarian" issues.
Turkey has reinforced its "observation" posts in northern Syrian territory it occupies with artillery and tanks.
And also over the weekend Syria says its air defenses intercepted several Israeli missiles involved in a Saturday night attack near Damascus International Airport.
The Israel Defense Forces refused comment on the attack that was said to be on arms depot used by Iran Hezbollah according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
An Israeli source recently acknowledged 200 air attacks by 800 missiles during the last year in Syria aimed at Iranian interests.
It would be illustrative to know the predominant religion and ethnicity of this small village
HTS = aligned with al Qaeda
Given the likelihood of American retaliation it is highly likely that any use of gas will be by the “rebels” rather than by Syria. It does not accomplish enough more than other tactics to be worth it unless you can pin it on the other guys.
“Everything is so simple and clear!”
Honesty and high moral standards are the hallmmarks of the participants in this war!
Funny thing: every previous chlorine attack has been ISIS/al-qaeda.
Obama was pushing for boots on the ground when he suddenly clammed up after it came out his bestest buds ISIS used chlorine.
Maybe something related
Rival militia leadership?
Punishing villagers for turning in a terro leader?
I voted for the exact opposite of this. Defending Al Qaeda so they can slaughter Christians & other minorities crosses my red line.
Who to believe...
