According to Ammar Jamal, the Al-Qaeda affiliated White Helmets intend to use in their operation families of militants who want to move to the side of the Syrian government.
“Members of the White Helmets are preparing a staging an attack with chemical weapons using families of [militants] who have been willing to move to the [Syrian] government side. After the preparation of video material, the White Helmets will bring the families of captive former Daesh [ISIS] members willing to reconcile with the government,” said the activist, noting that the provocation will be held very soon.
Yesterday, the Russian Defense Ministry said that preparations for the chemical weapons provocations in Idlib should be finalized by early Saturday. The signal for the start of the operation will be a special order from the “foreign friends of the Syrian revolution”.
The Russian military also reported that in Idlib a meeting of leaders of the terrorist groups was held to discuss scenarios of the staged attacks to be carried out in various villages in order to accuse the Syrian army of using chemical weapons. The meeting also counted on the participation of the White Helmets, according to the Russian ministry.
According to Major General Igor Konashenkov, the official representative of the Russian Ministry of Defense, the meeting approved the shooting scenarios of the “incidents” staged with alleged use of chemical weapons by the Syrian army.
“According to irrefutable information held by the Russian Ministry of Defense on September 7 in Idlib city, a meeting was held at a command post near the al-Vahda school, between the group leaders Fatah al-Sham Front, the al-Nusra Front, the Turkistan Islamic Party, with the participation of local coordinators of the Syrian Civil Defense (White Helmets),” he said.
Konashenkov added that the Russian Ministry of Defense will scrupulously monitor the situation in Syria and the actions of the armed forces groupings of various countries in the Middle East.
