Turkey Using Poison Gas to Clear US Partnered “No Fly Zone” Inside Syria

Turks rain poison gas barrelbombs on Syrian towns with full US complicity

Syria: Takfiri Terrorists Attack Residential Areas of Besieged Towns with Gas Cylinders
VT Damascus:  Yesterday, Turkey and the al Qaeda “franchise,” al Nusra began poison gas attacks on Shiite Syrian towns in and near the region chosen by them as a “Safe Zone” for refugees.  Through the day a battle ensued with Syrian Air Force jets bombing and strafing the chemical weapons brigades over what the United States and Turkey have informally deemed a “No Fly Zone”.

This is clear thus far, Turkey and the United States certainly consider al Qaeda a trustworthy working partner and key to their incursion into Turkey in order to form a “Safe Zone” even though Turkey has a long history acting as facilitator for chemical attacks against Syria, a fact well established.What is also clear is the use of chemical weapons by Turkey with full knowledge of the US Defense Department, and as Seymour Hersh reported in his book, The Red Line and the Rat Line in 2014:

Last May (2014), more than ten members of the al-Nusra Front were arrested in southern Turkey with what local police told the press were two kilograms of sarin. In a 130-page indictment the group was accused of attempting to purchase fuses, piping for the construction of mortars, and chemical precursors for sarin. Five of those arrested were freed after a brief detention.

The others, including the ringleader, Haytham Qassab, for whom the prosecutor requested a prison sentence of 25 years, were released pending trial. In the meantime the Turkish press has been rife with speculation that the Erdoğan administration has been covering up the extent of its involvement with the rebels.”

Hersh went on further to outline America’s knowledge, not only of Turkey’s involvement with al Qaeda/al Nusra but that of Saudi Arabia as well:

“The joint chiefs also knew that the Obama administration’s public claims that only the Syrian army had access to sarin were wrong. The American and British intelligence communities had been aware since the spring of 2013 that some rebel units in Syria were developing chemical weapons.

On 20 June analysts for the US Defense Intelligence Agency issued a highly classified five-page ‘talking points’ briefing for the DIA’s deputy director, David Shedd, which stated that al-Nusra maintained a sarin production cell: its programme, the paper said, was ‘the most advanced sarin plot since al-Qaida’s pre-9/11 effort’. (According to a Defense Department consultant, US intelligence has long known that al-Qaida experimented with chemical weapons, and has a video of one of its gas experiments with dogs.)

The DIA paper went on: ‘Previous IC [intelligence community] focus had been almost entirely on Syrian CW [chemical weapons] stockpiles; now we see ANF attempting to make its own CW … Al-Nusrah Front’s relative freedom of operation within Syria leads us to assess the group’s CW aspirations will be difficult to disrupt in the future.’ The paper drew on classified intelligence from numerous agencies: ‘Turkey and Saudi-based chemical facilitators,’ it said, ‘were attempting to obtain sarin precursors in bulk, tens of kilograms, likely for the anticipated large scale production effort in Syria.’ “

Turkey, along with Saudi Arabia and Qatar, as part of their new policy to fight ISIS terrorists and build a “No Fly Zone” inside Syria, is responsible for providing unspecified poison gas cylinders to their special operations troops operating with al Nusra inside Syria along with staging attacks over the Turkish border.

Medical teams are examining victims and soil samples are being collected.  The CIA backed Syrian Human Rights Observatory, based in London has been curiously silent about the attack.

The Turkish backed troops fired gas cylinders along with high explosive shells and missiles into two Shiite towns in Northern Aleppo, Al Zahra and Navil, which had been under siege for over two years.  The areas receiving most damage were the Mayer, Zahreh al-Qareh and Tamoureh districts of al-Zahra, where nearly a dozen gas cylinders hit.These towns have been used by Damascus based forces as a linchpin for operations against Takfiri terrorist groups currently being pushed back to their Turkish bases.

US Attacked Turkish Chemical Weapons Plant Inside Syria

On May 1, 2015, American fighter bombers destroyed an underground chemical weapons facility in Raqaah, Syria.  Three Turkish officers were killed in the attack and two captured by Syrian Special Forces.  The names of the dead are Najim Al Dein Tourna, Jakri abdullah and Khoder Jaherzak.  The names of the captured officers were given to Turkey and the Crescent Cross as required by the Geneva Convention but Turkey has, thus far, made no efforts to effect their repatriation. These two join a bevy of Qatari, Saudi and Turkish military taken prisoner inside Syria.  From Veterans Today:

“A high ranking Turkish officer explained to interrogators that Turkey’s support of ISIS and their direct involvement in the use of chemical weapons is meant to give Turkey influence and leverage when Al Nusra and the Muslim Brotherhood enter Damascus.  The officer indicated that sarin and now chlorine gas attacks are unleashed against Syrian civilians while “Syrian Human Rights Observatory” is used to place blame on the Damascus government.”

The chemical weapons plant was in an underground complex beneath an athletic field just outside the walls of the historic city.

Raqaah, Syria

Syrian Human Rights Observatory acknowledged that there were 52 deaths in the attack on the underground facility but claimed all deaths were civilians, something repeated in an Al Jazeera broadcast.

Conclusion

With the stories of barrelbombs and chlorine gas, always attributed to Syrian Human Rights Observatory, filling the media, the real story, a long history of chemical warfare against Syrian towns by Turkish and Saudi backed terrorists, a story reported in detail by Seymour Hersh, one investigated thoroughly by former US Army Chemical Warfare Specialist Jeffrey Silverman from Tbilisi, Georgia, one investigated by Press TV correspondent Serena Shimm, there is nothing surprising about this week’s chemical attacks other than America’s involvement.

It was Serena Shimm, killed in a staged one car accident in Turkey in 2014, that broke the story of Turkey’s transiting chemical weapons from Georgia, confirming Jeffrey Silverman’s 2013 series of stories published in New Eastern Outlook in 2013 and 2014. With over 400 American observers just across the border inside Turkey, it is not unreasonable to assume that Turkey’s ethnic cleansing of Syrian Shiites using chemical weapons, as part of last week’s agreement with the US, is being done without full US knowledge and complicity.

    US-UK had supplied the mustard gas & other deadly chemicals Saddam used against Iran & Kurds on both sides. Now its the Turks doinit!!! They forget that before the Ottomans there was NO Turkey!!!

    Long ago in Los Angeles I met a Persian doctor who had treated some of their mustard gas injuries or 1980s & he showed me a couple photos of the soldiers deformed faces. Just beyond horrendous.
    If you are a human (not just look like one) & you look at one of those injuries you’d want to dip their makers’ faces into their own chemicals.

    I’m informed that the Shiite Syrian towns mentioned here, Nibbul and al-Zahraa, resisted even the neo-colonial French Foreign Legion during de-colonisation battles. The Frenchies never took ’em, and General Allen’s ISIS freaks are not going to take them now.
    Bravo the heroic Syrian Arab Army.

  3. Simpsons Donkey  July 30, 2015 at 6:51 pm

    Great story, Uncle. Read Thierry Meyssan’s article at VoltNet on the threat by Obama to kick Turkey out of NATO. http://www.voltairenet.org/article188307.html
    There is plentiful confirmation DIA intelligence conspired in the sarin attack at The Ghouta, from Mint Press’s reports of the inmtercepted e-mails of one MacDonald. Zahraan ‘Alloush’s unit, Jaish al-Islam, also responsible for the Rape of ‘Aadra, is a main perp. Let us not accept Hersh’s story whole.
    The ISIS czar General Allen is behind Erdogan’s insane attacks on PKK, and the attempt at a no-fly zone to supply ISIS from Turkey. Turkey now risks civil war, and well deserves it.

    Doing the banksters’ dirty work killing civilians with poison gas. Erdogan should recall his contemporary in Iraq was a gasser of Kurdish civillians. Whether he was actually executed is for another day, but Iraq was ruined and the former asset is no longer it’s president.

  5. Detlef Reimers  July 30, 2015 at 2:34 pm

    This frightening information might probably never been told in western mainstream media, but it has to been told to all the deluded people, who still believe in all the lies, that are been told to them several times a day.

    The Kurds were gassed by Saddam, the western world condemmned it, allthough they sold all the chemical and mechanical parts (German, American).

    Iranian soldiers were gassed by Saddam, the western world shut up (same procedure as above).

    The Kurds are now again gassed by Erdogan, the western world shuts up again (mostly the same procedure as above).

    No one cares, really? In an extremely short period, NATO states under the leading strategic command of the USA can be changed into killing beasts – of course democratic killing beasts.

    And most all of the current republican as well as parts of the democratic prersidential candidates cry for war, war, more war. What a crazy and criminal world is this?

  6. Cold Wind  July 30, 2015 at 1:53 pm

    How quickly Erdogan’s government has become the mirror image of Netanyahu’s, both notable for their treachery and inhumanity. Yet, proud allies of the United States!

  7. captain obvious  July 30, 2015 at 9:46 am

    I hope turkey gets what it really deserves and soon! they accused Assad of having chemical weapons but what are they going to do about erdogan and the District of Criminals actually USING them?

    • captain obvious  July 30, 2015 at 10:03 am

      another tidbit, what the hell right does turkey have trying to make a no fly zone inside Syria when turkey is supporting the friggin terrorists?!! I’m not going to have ONE BIT of sympathy for turkey if Syria and other neighboring countries (like Iraq) decide they’ve had enough and declare all out warfare against turkey, all at once and with everything they have!

  8. davor  July 30, 2015 at 8:34 am

    Syrian Human Rights Observatory – one drop in the sea of London-based predator phony freedom groups. Syriza also has its London headquarters , London is a place where free thinkers of the world gather to rip and steal money and resources from weak and impoverished regions of the world.

  9. LC  July 30, 2015 at 7:58 am

    Thanks Mr. Duff for unveiling genocides coordinated by agents of the Rothschild Khazarian Mafia (RKM) Turkish Government + NATO satanist cannibals.

    Looks like there is a typo in last line of above article by dropping UN from REASONABLE.

    SO: sentence was supposed to be:

    With over 400 American observers just across the border inside Turkey, it is not UN-reasonable………

    Peace

      LC,

      forget your RKM stuff. It’s so much more, than you ever thought of. We are wittnessing a fulminant power playfrom different sides, played out in great parts now in the Middle East, but never should we forget the other places, where this is going on now.

      There is no in single historical or actual event, that can be forseen from a deterministic – and in an even lesser part – from a ethnic or religious view. It was and is much more complex than this, much too many parties are engaged in this “war”. Yes, it is a war, allthough most people won’t call it a war because theyare duped by professional liers and politicians (as a vivid part of it).

      Let’s grow up to the facts. If we try to do this, we learn that every simplistic way to grasp the horrendeous criminal acts, done by persons, groups, corporations, banks or even nations, cannot be broken down only to some old tribal schemes. Please look at the broader picture, and you’ll learn that much more grand players are at work here. I encourage you to widen your perspective.

    • LC  July 30, 2015 at 11:00 pm

      Where else should I be looking?

    • Detlef Reimers  July 31, 2015 at 2:57 am

      If you look at the whole Stalin time for instance, you’ll learn that what formerly was expressed by Churchill in his famous Times article, did not hold true for the later time, beginning from roughly 1935.

      If you look at Hitler, there were not only rare happenings and developments in Peace time as in war times, which in no way can be simply attriuted to a single and coherent plan, because people made their own decisions at certain circumstances.

      If you look at developments related to the supranational efforts which are mostly known as New World Order, have been remarkeably disturbed and later fought back in a profound way. They themselves talked about this and said their plan was to achieve most of their goals in 2000 – it just didn’t work and this is much more true under the BRICS developments.

      In Mao’s times you could rightly argue that China’s economic was organized by a western jew. This is no longer true and I mean on a big scale. Who would have forseen the Iran-US deal ten years back, I think no one. This was a needed adjustments of their plans, which had to acknowlegde new realities.

      These are – very roughly – some major points which might justify what I wrote to you before.

    • LC  August 1, 2015 at 5:51 pm

      Have any links to anything for reference????
      Have you checked my linked documents like “PAWNS IN THE GAME” book of Admiral William Guy Carr which I posted here many times????

      Iran Deal???? I had written my own views of it since I began posting comments on VT.
      This has been a HOAX in the making for 30 years just like so many other ones!!!! Once again: I still believe it has been for looting Iran’s money by some of its insiders & rulers & NOT for enriching uranium or making nukes. Pretty much like NASA’s many trillion dollar hoaxes!!!!

      9/11??? I know a guy here who was told by a PentaCon officials two months earlier about it but he won’t discuss details or names because he thinks his own identity would be revealed & will be Pegassused real quick!!!!
      Are you talking about supra natural controllers???? I’ve been covering that for long time. Some last examples are in today’s page:
