Putin rebukes Netanyahu over ‘groundless’ accusations on suspected chemical incident in Syria

Curiously, Israel has never ratified the prohibition on chemical weapons and continues to maintain stockpiles of Sarin in Negev at Dimona according to a CIA report

… from Russia Today, Moscow

Russian President Vladimir Putin told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a telephone conversation that it was unacceptable to make “groundless” accusations concerning the alleged chemical weapons incident that took place in Syria earlier this week.

During the phone call initiated by the Israeli side on Thursday, Putin and Netanyahu stressed the importance of boosting international efforts to tackle terrorism, the Kremlin said in a statement.

Both sides “expressed readiness to expand [cooperation] in the interest of assuring stability and security in the Middle East and, first of all, in Syria,” it said.

In particular, Putin “pointed out that it was unacceptable to make groundless accusations against anyone without conducting a detailed and unbiased investigation.”

Following the reports of the alleged attack on Tuesday, Netanyahu said that “there’s no, none, no excuse whatsoever for the deliberate attacks on civilians and on children, especially, with cruel and outlawed chemical weapons.” The Israeli PM also urged the “international community to fulfill its obligation from 2013 to fully and finally remove these horrible weapons from Syria.”

At least 70 people, including 11 children, were reportedly killed in a suspected chemical incident in the town of Khan Sheikhoun in Iblib province, Syria, on Tuesday. The US and its allies have put the blame on the Syrian government.

Earlier on Thursday, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman told the Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper that he was sure Syrian government forces were behind the “chemical weapons attack” in Idlib.

“The two murderous chemical weapons attacks on civilians in the Idlib region in Syria and on the local hospital were carried out by direct and premeditated order of Syrian President Bashar Assad, with Syrian planes. I say this with 100 percent certainty,” Lieberman said.

 

The defense minister criticized the ‘international community’ for having “zero” reaction to the incident, stressing that “the world needs to take responsibility and, instead of just talking, needs to do something.” When asked if Russia was somehow involved in the chemical weapons attack, Liberman replied “we don’t know.”

The Russian Defense Ministry said the Syrian military carried out airstrikes in Khan Sheikhoun on April 4, hitting production facilities where terrorists stored chemicals, which were previously used in Iraq and the Syrian city of Aleppo.

Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem has dismissed any accusations that the Syrian Army deployed chemical weapons in Idlib.

It’s impossible that the army – which has been making significant gains in almost all theaters of the Syrian war – would use banned chemical weapons against its “own people” and even terrorists, the minister said.

    For those of us that said, “give Trump a chance,” because of his supposed agenda that included the withdrawal it seemed of troops from endless wars… this is a shock. I honestly thought he had more judgement.

    The second false flag gas attack, THAT… is the reason and and pics of “The children,” for coming to the brink of world war with Russia?

    No… the goal of Zion is not just Greater Israel fought for and financed by the West and the impoverishment of the USA… but the take over again of Russia and the reestablishment Literally and they are talking about it in Israel of the ancient kingdom of Khazaria on the way to complete rule per Deuteronomy’s baleful sentence for all the nations to become slaves of Zion.
    This is literally what this is about.
    A real and powerful resurgence of the American middle class could have finally killed Zion with the knowledge that has come out post 911 and with assimilation of the Ashkenazi in the USA and the West to a degree.

    Looking at the whole… we have as a nation again been played for a fool. Sadly we now deserve our fate. If a resurgence comes it may only come upon ashes.

    Too late! According to Antiwar.com Trump has launched 59 cruise missiles into Homs, Syria hitting an airfield that is likely to be also used by Russia. I guess the S-400’s were overwhelmed. No word on a Russian response, if any.

    The Israeli/ US, m.o. is getting tiring. Trump announces Assad can stay, and within 48 hours an alleged gas atrack happens in Idlip. Before there is time for a proper investigation to develop the French, and British puppets scream in for Assad’s head. LeIberman is 100% sure Syria gassed it’s own. Maybe they found Assad’s passport at the scene. The rule is get the lie out there ad nauseum, but first.

    Lying joo Lieberman is 100% certain…That’s not evidence. I am certain that it was Israel who first started chanting “Assad must go” and the US and all other donkey nations under the Israeli boot followed suit.

    “Netanyahu said that “there’s no, none, no excuse whatsoever for the deliberate attacks on civilians and on children, especially, with cruel and outlawed chemical weapons.”

    Does he feel the same way about Israel using phosphorus on innocent civilians in Gaza, or has he forgotten about that already? Typical Israeli hypocrisy. Israel is founded on deliberate attacks on civilians and children, so wtf is Satanyahu talking about? It’s about time the international community splits up that cancerous apartheid state and drives its illegal occupiers into the sea.

    Meanwhile, Mattis is presenting military “options” to Trump, including use of cruise missiles against Syrian targets. Putin needs to develop a whole new level of clarity for the West and for Israel that strikes against Syrian forces will not be permitted He needs to do this today.Right now, Trump believes he has Putin cowered into submission because there is a green light for an attack against Syria and Putin has said nothing.
