The Russian center for Syrian reconciliation stated that it had received information from a local resident that al-Nusra Front terrorists and White Helmets were preparing to stage a provocation, involving chemical weapons’ use, in Syria’s Idlib province in order to blame Damascus for the attack on civilians.
“On the evening of February 12, the Russian center for reconciliation received a telephone call from the resident a settlement in the Idlib province, informing about a forthcoming provocation, using poisonous chemicals, to air it on a foreign television channel. According to the person, on the afternoon of February 12, the al-Nusra Front militants delivered brought more than 20 bottles of chlorine and personal protective equipment on three cars,” the Russian military stated.

“I don’t have the evidence,” Mattis said. “What I am saying is that other groups on the ground – NGOs, fighters on the ground – have said that sarin has been used, so we are looking for evidence.”
This week the American public was once again bombarded by fresh headlines alleging the Syrian government under President Bashar al-Assad gassed its own people. And in predictable fashion the usual threat of US military force soon followed.
Except of course rather than “alleging” a chemical incident, all the usual suspects from CNN pundits to State Department bureaucrats to Pentagon officials in typical fashion are opting for the simpler “Assad did it” narrative. State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert stated Thursday, “Russia is making the wrong choice by not exercising its unique influence. To allow the Syria regime to use chemical weapons against its own people is unconscionable. We will pursue accountability.”
The White Helmets published this photo on Thursday, claiming that its “volunteer was suffocated by the chlorine gas attack”. It appears that this is the “NGO” Defense Secretary Jim Mattis referenced on Friday to say “open sources” say Assad is using chemical weapons.
Nauert’s statement was a repeat of talking points from last week’s chemical attack claims, wherein both she and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson ultimately blamed Russia. But like with other recent chemical attack allegations, the claims couldn’t be more vague or poorly sourced, yet was still enough for U.S. officials to issue more direct threats of US military action against Assad.
H/t reader squodgy:
“Seems White Helmets is a clever psyop, presumably by the Rothschild owned CIA.

After having deconstructed the White Helmets’ propaganda narratives and the nature of the organization over a year ago, journalist Vanessa Beeley recently traveled to Syria and uncovered yet more proof that the White Helmets are nothing more than al-Nusra and al-Qaeda members simply acting as the terrorist organizations’ propaganda wing.
After demonstrating clearly that the al-Nusra headquarters and the White Helmets headquarters in Sakhour, East Aleppo were, in actuality, the same location, Beeley was able to talk with numerous Syrian civilians who suffered under Nusra’s control during the time in which the Syrian government had yet to retake and liberate East Aleppo. Beeley asked these civilians about the role of the White Helmets during that time and their answers might shock anyone buying into the propaganda narrative being disseminated by Western corporate media outlets and the poorly made award-“winning” documentary dedicated to them.
Just when you thought they were slowing down following their failure to win a Nobel Peace Prize in October, the US-UK backed ‘NGO’ dubbed the White Helmets, continue to produce an unprecedented amount of western-oriented war propaganda.

Created out of militants who invaded Aleppo, the Western-funded White Helmets is a terrorist support group fraudulently masquerading as a humanitarian organization to undermine Syrian government, says independent researcher and journalist Vanessa Beeley.
The propaganda from the rebel-held eastern Aleppo is produced by a number of organizations and individuals who are sponsored by the West, with the White Helmets being the largest among them, Beeley told RT. But the White Helmets are not the heroes that the mainstream media is trying to make of them.
“This organization is a fraudulent shadow-state construct created by NATO to simply propagate the propaganda that will demonize Assad’s government and also demonize Russian legal intervention in Syria,” said the journalist, who recently returned from Syria.
