The Russian defense ministry says chlorine gas containers have been smuggled into areas controlled by western-backed White Helmets organization for a false flag chemical attack in Syria’s Idlib province. Igor Konashenkov said the terrorists and members of the White Helmets organization have tried to lure the people to take part in the fake video footage in exchange for food. Russia and Syria have both presented the United Nations with evidence that armed groups want to blame Damascus for a false-flag chemical attack and pave the way for the U-S and its allies to attack Syria. The U-S has accused Syria of attacking civilians with chemical weapons in previous operations. Damascus has strongly denied any involvement in either case, saying the attacks had been carried out by militants to slow Syria’s progress in the fight against terror.
