Tony Cartalucci – Tel Aviv Regime Strikes Syria, Again
Israelis must realize that the only card left for the special interests seeking regime change in Syria is the perceived threat Israel faces from ”retaliation.” Despite multiple airstrikes on Syria, the Syrian government has not struck back. Israelis must understand that they themselves, their friends, and their families, are purposefully being used as targets for what their government is attempting to provoke from neighboring Syria.
It should also be remembered by readers, and Israelis in particular, warnings by both the Russians and the Syrian government, that Western-backed terrorist proxies in Syria may be preparing for a chemical weapons attack on Israel. Such a false-flag operation would dovetail perfectly with Israeli attempts to provoke Syria into retaliation for repeated violations of its airspace and multiple airstrikes upon its territory. The misery that will follow a false-flag operation, including the inevitable war that would erupt, will be the premeditated work of Israel’s greatest enemy – its own government.

voiceofrussia.com – Likeliest source of Syrian rebels’ chemicals is stockpiles in Libya – expert
Mr Semen Bagdasarov sits on the international relations committee of the Lower House of the Russian Parliament:
“Damascus cannot be blamed, because it is strictly complying with its obligations under the chemical disarmament plan. At the same time, chemical provocations by the opposition are set to go on. The likeliest source of the chemical munitions in rebel hands is the Gaddafi-era chemical stockpiles in Libya. Libyan chemical weapons reach the Syrian rebels by way of Turkey. The Turkish authorities appear to be sometimes unable to control this traffic. Once chemically armed, Syrian rebel groups launch chemical attacks at a time and place of their choosing.”
