almasdarnews.com – Russian FM says militants preparing chemical provocation in Syria
Militants are establishing arms caches in several Syrian provinces to stage chemical weapons provocations, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said at a briefing on Friday.
“There are alarming reports, which say that members of the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham terror group (also known as Jabhat al-Nusra, outlawed in Russia), together with the White Helmets, are getting ready to stage chemical agent attacks, planning to accuse the Syrian government of using chemical weapons,” she said.

In its zealous pursuit to misinform western public opinion about Syria, MSM has canceled dozens of scheduled interviews with a war reporter after he has declared to Belgian RTL radio: “It wasn’t the government of Bashar al-Assad that used Sarin gas or any other gas in Ghouta”.
Pierre Piccinin da Prata, the Belgian War reporter and Editor-in-Chief of The Maghreb and Orient Courier, held hostage with Italian war reporter Domenico Quirico by Syrian ‘rebels’ for five months, eavesdropped a conversation through a closed door- between their jailers about the chemical weapon attack and saying that President al-Assad was not responsible for Ghouta Sarin gas attack.
presstv.com – Syria lashes out at US, UK, France over statement
Syria has strongly dismissed a joint statement by the United States, France, and Britain that declares they will not be participating in the war-torn Arab country’s reconstruction as long as it is led by President Bashar al-Assad.
An anonymous source at the Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates told Syria’s official news agency SANA on Sunday that the joint statement was “a historical document of lie, hypocrisy, deception, and falsification.”
The statement by the three countries also came in spite of the fact that Assad has already ruled out the prospect of allowing hostile Western regimes to help reconstruct Syria.
The source at the Syrian Foreign Ministry said the governments in Washington, Paris, and London were “fully responsible” for the bloodshed in Syria.
The source called the joint statement “blatant interference” in Syria’s internal affairs and said those countries that had “killed and destroyed” were not invited to contribute to the reconstruction of Syria in the first place.
