Russia Says ISIS Planning to Gas Syrian Civilians, Frame Assad, To Justify US Invasion

Moscow, Russia – On Thursday, during a weekly press briefing by the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, spokeswoman Maria Zakharova explained that their intelligence has revealed active terrorist plots to stage chemical attacks in Syria in order to justify and precipitate U.S. strikes and increased intervention in the Syrian civil war.

The information exposes ongoing plans by Syrian terrorist groups to stage chemical weapons attacks, to be blamed on the Assad government, in an effort to justify U.S. attacks against Syrian government forces.

“According to information available [to us], Syrian terrorist groups plan staged provocative actions with the use of chemical poison gases to justify US strikes against the positions of the Syrian government forces,” Zakharova said at a weekly press briefing.

The intelligence reveals that ISIS has deployed laboratories and equipment for manufacturing chemical weapons from its capital of Raqqa to Deir ez-Zor, according to Zakharova.

“Daesh is transferring workshops and equipment for the production of ammunition, including those equipped with chemical agents, from the city of Raqqa to the controlled areas of Deir ez-Zor province,” Zakharova said.

With the U.S.-led coalition claiming to have almost completely encircled the ISIS capital of Raqqa, it begs the question of how the terrorists are able to move these chemical laboratories without complicity from the U.S.

Zakharova noted that “the movement of such large-scale equipment from under the nose of the coalition forces can indicate at least a selective unwillingness to see the facts.”

“I think you can speak with a high degree of probability about complicity with insurgents,” Zakharova asserted.

Although the U.S. was quick to blame the Assad government for an April 4 chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun without any independent corroboration, MIT professor, and former DoD analyst Theodore Postol thoroughly debunked this assessment and revealed that it was much more likely the work of terrorist groups attempting to draw the U.S. further into a Syrian regime change operation.

“We will continue to consistently seek the most professionally rigorous and politically impartial investigation into the investigation of both the Khan Sheikhoun chemical incident and other persistent chemical provocations against the legitimate Syrian government,” Zakharova said.
