Chemical weapons provocation in Syria to start today: Russia

TEHRAN, Sep. 08 (MNA) – Chief spokesman for the Russian Ministry of Defense said on Saturday that Terrorists in Idlib are prepared for a provocation involving chemical weapons.

Terrorists in the rebel-held Syrian city of Idlib have almost completed their preparations for a provocation involving chemical weapons, Major General Igor Konashenkov stated.

According to the general, leaders of al-Nusrah terrorists and representatives of the White Helmets met in Idlib on September 7 in order to coordinate their participation in the upcoming false flag operation.

"The scenarios for the filming of staged ‘incidents’ with the alleged use of poisonous substances by Syrian government troops against civilians in the settlements of Jisr Al-Shugur, Serakab, Taftanaz, and Sarmin were finally agreed upon during the meeting. The full readiness of all participants involved in carrying out staged provocations should be ensured by the evening of September 8. The signal for the beginning of the practical phase of the terrorists' provocation in the province of Idlib will be a special team from some ‘foreign friends of the Syrian revolution,” Sputnik quoted Konashenkov as saying.

Previously, the Russian Defense Ministry reported that al-Nusrah terrorists were preparing a provocation in Syria's western Idlib province in order to accuse Damascus of using chemical weapons against civilians, while the UK, the US, and France said in August that they "will respond appropriately to any further use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime."
