TEHRAN, Aug. 26 (MNA) – Russian Defense Ministry's spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said on Saturday, that a group of militants, who had undergone training by the Olive Group, planned to stage rescuing the victims of a chemical weapons attack in Idlib.

"In the most populated area of Kafr Zita, preparations are being made for a group of residents brought from the north of the province to participate in the staging of an "attack" of allegedly chemical munitions and bombs by Syrian government forces, staged assistance by mimicked ‘rescuers' from the "White Helmets" and the shooting of video for distribution to the Middle East and English-language media," he said.
